Andrew Felty and DJ Pari know their soul music. With a treasure trove of vintage hits between them, the two DJs are vinyl-spinning history lessons. And unlike other professors, they give you lessons you can dance to. Taking their name from James Brown’s three-part single released in 1971, Pari (aka Markus Schmidt, the German-born political reporter for The Richmond Times-Dispatch, who recently premiered his documentary on Brown, “The Power of Soul,” in Germany) and Felty play classic and rare tunes from the era (late-1960s to the pre-disco ’70s) on original 45 RPM singles. Though they mostly play choice cuts from the past, it isn’t strictly an oldies affair. Sponsored by RVA Magazine, Soul Power rings in the new year on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at Weezie’s. The music starts at 10:30 p.m. Free. weezieskitchen.com.
