Even Linda Richman would agree that Mwiza Simfukwe’s voice is like butter. And not that cold-fridge kind of butter that you need to microwave before spreading. Simfukwe’s butter is room temperature and fucking smooth. So smooth in fact, a baby might be made after his show at the newly reopened Hooch and Hive—we’re warning you now. The 20-something Zambian-born Tampa singer-songwriter is so talented he’s already opened for some greats including The Kingston Trio (before the last remaining member died in early 2020.)
Mwiza Simfukwe, Fri. Dec. 11, 9 p.m. Free. Hooch and Hive, Tampa. More info here.
