Earlier this year, JD Samson debuted a new project called CRICKETS with MEN bandmate Michael O'Neill and Roddy Bottum of Faith No More and Imperial Teen (who are playing some shows of their own around their first album in seven years, Now We Are Timeless). The trio played their first show at NYC's Union Pool in February, and they have another coming up in LA, at The Smell on May 26. It's with KUROMI, A G E N D E R, and Supreme Scream, and tickets are available at the door.

JD has some non-CRICKETS shows coming up too, including a July 4 set at Elsewhere Rooftop with Photay (DJ Set), Rimarkable, and Kfeelz b2b DJ Raqx. Tickets to that are on sale now. JD also closes out this summer's edition of Union Pool Summer Thunder with a free edition of the PAT party on August 25. That's in addition to a Pride PAT party happening on June 27 at the same venue.
