In 1972, there was no better way to spend a weekend than getting stoned, rocking bell-bottoms and grooving to the Main Ingredient’s
soul-filled tune “Everybody Plays the Fool.” Frontman Cuba Gooding Sr. brought good vibes, soft melodies and beautiful harmonies to audiences around the world—and today, he keeps the music playing. Now known among younger fans as the father of Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr., the singer also serves as spokesperson for the REACH Foundation. When he performs this week, expect his big hit, along with other marvelous Main Ingredient tunes like “Spinning Around (I Must Be Falling in Love),” “I’m So Proud” and “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely.” There’s no exception to the rule on Friday, July 19, at George’s Nightclub. 842 Fourth St., San Rafael. $20—$35. 9pm. 415.226.0262.
