Sam Mickens

Brooklyn's new dance party, "Peoples Temple," here to wrecking-ball cultural doldrums and ignite the fires of tomorrow!

Debuting THURSDAY AUGUST 19TH and monthly thereafter, PEOPLES TEMPLE will inhabit the red-light interior of Williamsburg's most cracking young venue, Bruar Falls {245 Grand Ave.} marrying a raw and ecstatic dance party to varied but always thrilling musical guests. Hosted & selected by degenerate art maven Sam Mickens,(of The Dead Science, Ecstatic Showband & Revue, Xiu Xiu, Parenthetical Girls, et al.) PEOPLES TEMPLE will prove an exquisite night where folk from all walks of life can come to drink, dance, and co-exist in the spirit of ecstatic love.

Our grand opening, Aug. 19th will feature New York's most blazing young R & B chanteuse, Ms. Keesha Mishawn, presenting a full band set to shake the pillars of heaven. Hip Hop/R & B/Disco/Music of the 1980s/Ill Miscellaneous jams curated all night by Sam Mickens, the party runs 10pm-4 and is absolutely FREE.

Let's get it!

That letter from Sam pretty much speaks for itself. Still no word on the Sharon Jones-Sam Mickens "soul-off" though, but you can see Sam's Ecstatic Showband Revue again tonight (7/26), at Union Hall with Callers and People Get Ready.

Aa, Chat Logs, Sam Mickens's Ecstatic Showband and (the not-pictured) Island's Eyelids played a show Saturday night (7/24) at Silent Barn, which is where the pictures here were taken. More of them below...

To the guy who told that hot chick that "next day air" joke during chat logs I want you to know that even though she didn't laugh, I thought it was hilarious.

The bass player face in the last picture pretty much sums up what I think of Sam Mickey what's his name...

Sorry to ruin the magic 7:04 but the next day air joke wasn't funny. The only thing that had me laughing was the size of his dick. Sam Mickens and Chat Logs were pretty much the only thing that got him laid.
