Sam Mickens's Esctatic Showband & Revue @ Silent Barn
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...
