Even if you dislike Christian music –especially if you dislike Christian music–you need to give Sam Rocha’s Late to Love a listen. Because this album is that wished-for unicorn–thoughtful and lyrically rich, but also, dare we say, fun. Catchy. Both meditative and danceable. Which, upon further thought, is exactly what you’d hope for from an album inspired by the thought of St. Augustine.
It’s described by its recording label, Wiseblood Records, as “an original concept album that performs a reading of Augustine’s Confessions through soul music.” Rocha is uniquely positioned to do justice to the album’s philosophical underpinnings: he’s a professor of the philosophy of education at the University of British Columbia, and you can find his eponymous blog on Patheos, where he explores everything from the works of David Bentley Hart to Downton Abbey with insight and wit. He cites a broad list of musical forebears as well: Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Ray Charles, Gil Scott Heron, T-Bone Walker. Don’t be late to this one!

This event is free and open to the public.
