Sam Mickens (by Elizabeth Leitzell)
Sam Mickens

The Dead Science's Sam Mickens pulls together a rotating crew of some of NYC's most talented jazz regulars to form his Sam Mickens' Ecstatic Showband and Revue, a falsetto-fronted act that combines twisted bubblegum pop with the vocabulary of retro soul. They play the Cake Shop on Friday, January 29th (tonight) with genre-crossing, soul/funk/post-punk acts D. Rider and Whales & Cops. Videos of all three are below.

Sam Mickens picks up a guitar to play with drummer Mike Pride as a duo at Zebulon on January 31st. Extra Life (who have a new CD coming out) and Kush are also on the bill.

Mickens & Pride add saxist Darius Jones to form Black Lantern Trio, again at Zebulon, on February 21st. A video of that group is below.

The Showband & Revue have another show on Mike Pride's exhaustive schedule, listed below - it's a TBA date in Bushwick on March 12th. Videos and all tour dates are below...

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
