Anthony Hamilton 

8 p.m. Sunday, November 9. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.

If Anthony Hamilton's R&B seems grittier than the airbrushed variety common to today's charts, it might have something to do with his biography. It took Hamilton a decade of hook-singing (for the late 2Pac and Eve, among others) and failed solo deals before connecting with 2003's platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Comin' From Where I'm From. Even fame had its price: The Charlotte native temporarily lost his powerful croon while recording the similarly old-school, similarly well-received followup, Ain't Nobody Worryin'. While 2007's Southern Comfort raided the vault for some pre-fame Hamilton recordings, his fourth proper release, The Point of It All, is due by year's end.
