Sunday 23

CAT POWER — See listing for April 22. This is a 3 p.m. matinee show. The Earl (Sarig)

EVA JAMES — This is the final night of James' three-week Sunday residency, where she's joined by bandmate Eskil Wetterqvist for an acoustic set. Smith's Olde Bar (Sarig)

SON SEALS — It's a good thing Blind Willie's has expanded from the narrow little club it once was; the room needs its extra space to contain the giant, leonine presence of Chicago-blues legend Son Seals. Surrounded by the blues since the day he was born, in a house attached to his daddy's juke joint in Osceola, Ark., Seals was trained by his musician father and schooled by the blues greats all throughout his young life. Seals played with them all, and eventually became one of the greats himself. Forty years into it, his menacing vocals and profound emotion still mark the music of the Midnight Son. Blind Willie's (Kelly)
