Sean Tillmann of Har Mar Superstar doesn’t fit the part of the sensual soul singer: He rocks a Ron Jeremy haircut and named his project after a mall near his childhood home. But, when Har Mar channels the purring icons of Memphis and Detroit, he hits the R&B sweet spot on career highlight “Lady, You Shot Me,” named after Sam Cooke’s reported last words. On his new record Best Summer Ever, the irony of his early career has mostly evaporated. But he’s still tongue-in-cheek on live staples like “Tall Boy,” an ode to the 16-ounce beverage just frothing with double-entendres. Also on the bill: Neil Z and Butcher Bear and the Blades.
