Irma Thomas - Yoshi's San Francisco

Best to purchase tickets on the Yoshi's site soon as this event may sell out. My husband and I already have ours. Irma Thomas, the “Soul Queen of New Orleans,” has earned the reputation as one of America’s most distinctive and classic singers Irma first achieved prominence with a string of 1960s hits including “Time Is On My Side” (later covered by the Rolling Stones), “It’s Raining” and “Wish Someone Would Care”, and toured extensively with her band, The Tornados. Upon returning to Louisiana in the 1970s, she built her reputation as the “Soul Queen of New Orleans,” signing with Rounder in 1986. After surviving the destruction of her home and business by hurricane Katrina, she did After the Rain in 2006, which again earned her critical acclaim and won her a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album. Currently celebrating her 50th Anniversary, she has recently received an Offbeat Award, A Blues Music Award, Big Easy Award, and The Mo Jo Magazine of London England Legends Award and was chosen by NPR listeners and panel as “One Of The 50 Greatest Voices of All Time.” A treasure who started during the golden age of soul music she remains as compelling and powerful today.

    Again, Irma rocked our spirits and touched our souls. The program was short but she was wonderful as always with classics like "Let it Be Me" and "It's Raining".

    I'm sooo excited! For recognition purposes, I'm wearing black . . . not so distinctive . . . and I have an unfortunate haircut that looks like Justin Bieber back in the day. Leaving early as I'm not sure about traffic with Chinese New Year.

    Matt, Kim or Mike- can you let me know if you'd like to join us earlier for dinner at Yoshi's? If so, we can give our tickets to the server and they can save us better seats for the show.

    I just purchased the general ticket for Irma Thomas, not the VIP. Is that okay? I'd love to join you for dinner.
