The Comet is Coming played Mercury Lounge with Will Shore (pics)

The Comet Is Coming, the space rock-tinged jazz trio led by Shabaka Hutchings (who also leads Sons of Kemet and Shabaka and the Ancestors) — and also featuring keyboardist Dan Leavers and drummer Max Hallett — released their great sophomore album Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery this past Friday (3/15) via Impulse! and they’re supporting it on tour now. They were in Austin for SXSW when the album was released, and last night (3/18) they played NYC’s Mercury Lounge with opener Will Shore. The Comet Is Coming played a mix of songs from both albums with extended jams throughout. It was a very energetic, groovy show, and Shabaka was just nuts on the sax. Pictures are in the gallery above.

The group is doing a listening party/signing/meet and great at NYC’s Nublu tonight (3/19), and they mentioned on stage that they’d be back in NYC for a Bowery Ballroom show. Stay tuned for more details on that.
