Get Out 2: Organic Soul Tuesdays @ Eden's Lounge

olu butterfly hosts organic soul tuesdays at eden's loungeSince one just wasn't enough, I wanted to plug another event today: Organic Soul Tuesdays at Eden's Lounge.

Olu Butterfly (pictured), Fertile Ground and the rest of the crew has been doing Organic Soul Tuesdays for years now. I remember going to one in 2006 when it was at the 14 Karat Caberet.

It's a night of great local poetry, spoken word and hip-hop, as well as live performances from promising jazz artists and singer/songwriters.

The fun starts around 8 p.m.

I remember going to organic tuesday back when they were in some basement on saratoga. I think this was back in 03/04 or so...

I was just thinking about this last week, and wondered if they were still doing this. crazy that you put this up today.

That's the 14 Karat Cabaret. Here's what I wrote about the space in my review from '06:

Organic Soul Tuesdays is underground in two senses: None of the performers are signed to major labels, and the venue is below street level. When you walk in, the impression is that of your average office space. But take the stairs or elevator to the basement and the vibe drastically changes.

Downstairs, most of the decor -- from the paint on the walls and ceiling to the plastic cloths on the 15 or so small tables -- is either black or deep red. Two large red lanterns hang glowing above the bar, votive candles sit on the tables and some overhead lights illuminate the stage. Other than that, the place is kept pretty dark.

Organic Soul has been going on and great for years, MAP was the downstairs place on Saratoga, prior to that it was at the place now called Lux. In response to the previous post there have been signed artists there- Kindred and India Arie off the top of my head but I don't remember if India performed.
