Raphael Saadiq 

When: Tue., March 3, 8 p.m. 2009
Price: $32.50

Now while former Tony! Toni! Toné! frontman Raphael Saadiq has created quite a résumé for himself between recording his own projects and being quite the producer/songwriter in demand, this will be the first time he's bringing a headlining tour to his Bay Area hometown. Of course, it may have to do with the release of last year's most excellent The Way I See It, a collection of neo-soul gems infused with the vintage vibes of classic Motown, Brunswick and Curtom sides. This brand of authenticity goes so far as to cross over to an album cover image of him sporting horn-rimmed glasses and a sharp suit reminiscent of the late David Ruffin. Saadiq will be bringing his revivalist interpretation of the Oakland Stroke to the Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco) on Tuesday, March 3. 8 p.m., $32.50.
