Staff Pick: Chris Thomas King and The Floorwalkers

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Most people probably know Chris Thomas King as the man who sold his soul to the devil to improve his guitar skills in "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Unlike his character in the film, King doesn't need any help from down below.

Credited as the originator of blues/hip-hop fusion, King is known for his enthralling live performances. So a show at the historic Lincoln Theatre is not-to-be-missed stuff, especially when King will be performing with local legends The Floorwalkers. That's right, Chris Thomas King and The Floorwalkers - awesome.
