Need Something To Do Tuesday?

Everything old is new again, right? Right. Soulful crooner and musician Mayer Hawthorne isn't that old but his music embodies an era long gone. If you grew up spinning your parents' Smokey Robinson and Barry White albums, you're probably going to want to get your groove on at Neurolux tonight.

The 32-year-old from Ann Arbor, Mich., not only plays all of the instruments, but he writes and sings all of his own lyrics, too. He's had no formal training and never planned on making a career out of doing what he does, but that doesn't seem to discourage anyone from wanting more of what he brings to the stage and studio. His songs have been chosen as Starbucks iTunes Picks of the Week, featured on Ugly Betty's final season, and in Kanye West and Spike Jonze's short film We Were Once A Fairytale.

Peanut Butter Wolf, head of Stones Throw Records, signed him in 2008 after hearing only two songs. Chances are, it won't take long for the average cat to fall for him as well.

The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at ticketweb.com or at the Record Exchange for $15.
