Morgan Geist of Metro Area, Lono Brazil, SR71
The May edition of Jackson takes on a disco aesthetic as we welcome Environ Records chief and discerning music afficionado MORGAN GEIST for his first appearance at Sonotheque. One half of the incomparable METRO AREA (with Darshan Jesrani), Morgan's "Double Night Time" solo album was released to critical acclaim in 2008, topping end of year lists the world over. He returns to Chicago for his second Jackson performance! The evening's theme continues as we welcome the sublime LONO BRAZIL for his debut appearance at Jackson. With a storied history in the music industry, the scene stalwart's current monthly endeavor - the Disco Unusual Social Club - regularly blows the roof off of Danny's tavern, and we're floored to finally have him at Jackson. Samone SR71 Roberts rounds out our transmission, bringing her unique brand of effervescent disco stylings to Sonotheque in what will set off a night boogie-down jams from start to finish!
