Smart Bets: Sidney Barnes

Soul singer Sidney Barnes made a bit of a splash earlier this year backing up local band The Secret B-Sides on their album Flowers & Chocolate. But Barnes has been performing longer than most of the Secret B-Sides' members have been alive. Barnes recorded with Motown stars, introduced George Clinton and his do-wop group Parliaments to Motown Records mogul Barry Gordy and wrote chart hits for the Shangri-Las. And he's still doing his thing. Barnes performs at One Stop on Friday, Oct. 14 with jazz/rock/hip-hop group E. Company. 10 p.m., $5.
