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…
