Nick Waterhouse barrels into Dallas this week with momentum at his back. Touring behind this year's romping Never Twice, the retro-soul artist has been earning rave reviews and packing crowded U.S. clubs with fans getting hooked on some of his catchiest music to date. Never hesitant to pay homage to the disparate sources that have inspired him — Bo Diddley, Van Morrison and the recently departed Mose Allison, to name a few — Waterhouse's songs bustle with brassy energy, forcing listeners to engage with complete attention and physical response. His approach may remind you of one of our local heroes, the Grammy-nominated Leon Bridges. And, it just so happens that the two kindred spirits have struck up quite the friendship, one that has produced the eminently groovy "Katchi," a standout track from Waterhouse's latest release. Expect that tune, and likely many others, to raise the action on Club Dada's compact dance floor to epic heights on Thursday night. Might Mr. Bridges also swing by for an appearance?
