Charles “Wigg” Walker at Hi-Tone 

The Night Train from Nashville pulls into the Hi-Tone Café for a nonstop dance party this Friday night, when ‘60s Southern soul star Charles “Wigg” Walker and his newly formed, nine-man funk outfit the Dynamites transform the club into a stop on the chitlin’ circuit. Walker — an unsung musical hero if there ever was one — made his name waxing sides for the Chess and Champion labels; today, he’s dazzling younger generations with his superlative showmanship and perfect pipes while most of his cohorts are enjoying a quiet retirement. Listen for cult classics like “No Fool No More” and brand-new tracks like “Slinky” and “Come On In.” Setting the mood: Memphix DJ Chase One, Buck Wilders, the Hook-Up, and Nashville DJ D-Funk. Fans of the Bo-Keys, William Bell, or Sharon Jones, this show is for you. A paltry $5 will get you into the party, which starts at 9 p.m. on Friday, June 2nd.
