Weekend watch: Andre Williams at The Aquarium


A player in the R&B scenes of the 1950s and ’60s, Andre Williams saw his future derailed by drugs. In the '90s, the singer rebounded thanks to a new generation of acts like Jon Spencer, The Sadies and The Dirtbombs attracted to the gritty groove of his hit “Shake a Tail Feather.”

His latest, “Hoods and Shades,” is a funky celebration of Blaxploitation with songs like “A Good Day to Feel Bad.” Williams brings the heat Saturday to The Aquarium, 226 Broadway, Fargo. Music starts at 9:30 with openers Space Brothers Anonymous and The Statmods. Tickets are $10. (701) 235-5913.
