Marcellus Pittman All Night - Nowadays
March 23, 2018 - New York

The Soul Rebels with Special Guests to Be Announced! - Brooklyn Bowl
March 23, 2018 - Brooklyn

Eight piece brass ensemble THE SOUL REBELS are riding high in 2017 after touring four continents including Europe, Australia, debuting in China and Japan, selling out shows, backing up and collaborating live with Nas, G-Eazy, Pretty Lights, Curren$y, Joey Bada$$, Talib Kweli, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Marilyn Manson among many others, and opening for Lauryn Hill. The Soul Rebels started with an idea - to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. When not touring, The Soul Rebels' weekly show at New Orleans' Le Bon Temps Roulé is known to erupt with the kind of contagious, shout-along musical mayhem that The Rebels bring with them wherever they perform. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they combine topnotch musicianship and songs with grooves that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

Cathode Love Presents - Music Box Theater
Through March 31, 2018 - New York

Cathode Love is a book and companion LP featuring carefully curated writings and musical content focused around a central, celebratory impulse of suggestive, decadent, and symbolically-charged works in film, theory, visual art, poetry, fiction and essays, all tapping on the door of a new, synaesthetic sensibility. Cathode Love is wishing to move us toward a new aesthetic culture, one that resides "away from the mundane reality" (and certainly from banal art). An irregular almanac of irregular pleasures, an untimely messenger, a hope for catching a glimpse of light in the mirror of impossible beauty across shattered art-forms...Cathode Love, in its book/LP form, is published in the spirit of an aesthetic treatise of sorts. An exploratory document, and finally an accidental anthology of suggestions to run with. From the fiery intensity of Antonin Artaud's language of theater to the passionate elevation of sleaze to academic loftiness in Stephen Thrower's writings, this strange new collection of wild flowers if a trip to the jungle, not the zoo. Nothing is caged, all is free. And that is it's beauty. Cathode Love is, at the very least, a new window to actively "dream into" regar... (read more)
