Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket
Johnny Showcase & The Mystic Ticket
Johnny Showcase is an electrifying experience. An 8-piece absurdist soul outfit based in Philadelphia, it is an innovative, joyful tour-de-force that blissfully toes the line between performance art and a psychedelic soul revival. Carrying the torch of our funk-rock pioneers, they have gained a massive following and propelled Johnny to something that of a funky Philly folk hero legend.

Johnny Showcase is a sweaty, charismatic showman from Rhode Island who is equal parts Andy Kaufman and Prince. Surrounding him is a rag tag group of performers, including spiritual adviser Rumi Kitchen, two vacuous vocalists collectively named The Truth, and knife sharp backing band the Mystic Ticket.
Not Blood Paint
Not Blood Paint
Not Blood Paint’s shows have gained a reputation for being unpredictable, disorienting experiences. They employ costumes, set pieces, audience plants, and theatrics to create immersive spectacles that keep audiences reeling and give physical lives to the songs. The band has developed a system called the New Suit Methodology as a way of experiencing the music and environment differently each time, looking to encourage non-anticipation in themselves and those in the room with them. Their music has been compared to Queen, The Mars Volta, and Of Montreal, for their wide use of vocal harmonies and unconventional song structures.
