As the final of Wednesday of July hits us – it means yet another funky Mint residency is coming to a close…..but also means there is a fresh one around the corner. It gets no fresher (or funkier) than a Big Lil Baby Jesus Peasant Party. Anyone who has witnessed the funk in New Orleans during Jazzfest or at a Lettuce performance would know it gets thrown down at a Peasant Party. Same goes for anyone who has listened to a hip-hop record featuring Lil Baby Jesus. This much is true – August’s run of hump days at The Mint will be raging with bass.
Erick “Jesus” Coomes, also known as ED, The Rager, Facemelter and, in some circles, a bass godfather, debuts his residency with a trio that features himself, his brother Tyler on drums and Mr. Smirnoff, the guitarist of Lettuce and Lady Gaga‘s band. It’s sure to be wicked – and if you use discount code SUPERGOOD to get your residency pass, it is sure to be cheap too (the code gets you $30 off while it lasts!). Buy tickets here.
While you’re snatching up tickets to the Peasant Party - you may as well put yourself down to see Stanton Moore close out his residency tonight with sit-in guest Robert Walter on keys and Dirty Dozen Brass Band holding down horns. Get your tickets for that show here.
