Win Eccentric Soul Revue Tickets

2009_4_eccentricsoulposter.jpg Chicago's Numero Group, the record label that brings the lost voices of local soul back to life, is putting on the Eccentric Soul Revue at Park West Saturday night. It would be easy to say that this one-night live event is a stirring tribute to some of the less celebrated originators of Chicago soul, but the fact of the matter is that these old crooners still love to perform. An offshoot of Numero Group's Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation, which dusted off more than 40 hits off the storied Chicago label, Eccentric Soul Revue is a veritable showcase of Twinight's hit makers, bringing The Notations, Renaldo Domino, Nate Evans, Kaldirons and local legend Syl Johnson together for one night, live on stage, and backed up by JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound.

Tickets are still available, but we have a pair to give away free to one lucky Chicagoist reader. Enter for your chance after the jump, but hurry, because the contest closes at 3 p.m. today!

The Eccentric Soul Revue happens tomorrow at Park West, 322 West Armitage, 7:30 p.m., $22, all ages.
