The Suffers

When: Sat., June 3, 8 p.m. 2017

Houston isn’t exactly new to the amazing-female-singers game (see Beyonce), so it’s not entirely shocking to that The Suffers, and their remarkable lead woman Kam Franklin, hail from the Bayou City. Formed in 2011, the band started out as a kind of reggae jam band, but after adding a few more members, the group slowly settled into a neo- and modern-soul sound that has garnered them nationwide attention, including spots with David Letterman, the Daily Show, NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series and official showcases at SXSW. And I mean, who can’t relate to these lyrics: “I said I just got paid, and none of my bills are due today, I think it’s gonna be a real good day.” With the rise in modern soul and funk trickling back into the mainstream, it’s not a surprise bands like The Suffers are finally getting the attention they deserve.
