Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $16, you get one general-admission ticket to see Raphael Saadiq at the Electric Factory on Thursday, May 26, at 8:30 p.m. (up to a $32.95 value). Maximum value is based on advance tickets purchased through Ticketmaster; when purchased at the venue, tickets range from $25 to $28. For more than 40 years, the Electric Factory has been one of Philly’s go-to spots for an eclectic array of live music. The venue's brightly lit stage and intimate atmosphere create a festive avenue for hip swiveling and ear tapping to the soothing R & B of Grammy-nominated Raphael Saadiq. The soul revivalist has flashed his golden pipes as an alum of Tony! Toni! Toné! and has collaborated with melody makers such as D’Angelo, Q-Tip, and Joss Stone. An energetic showman, Saadiq will scale eager ear canyons with a selection of classic hits and new material from his latest opus, Stone Rollin', a record inspired by the gritty sounds characteristic of his live performances and the perils of ancient bowling techniques.
