The July 28th show will coincide with the digital release of his four song EP MYSTIC TICKET I: The Pump Fake.
On the 28th, we will play the EP in its entirety, front to back!
A follow up to his 2011 soul/ comedy masterpiece LOVE IS THE MESSAGE, Johnny turns in his 8-track 70’s sound for a futuristic fantasia, putting the analog aside for an almost completely digital synthetic-sound.
Each track nibbles on a different genre of spacey funk, from the Herbie Hancock kinetic shuffle of Screwdriver (I’m Sorry Michael) to the Prince / D’Angelo- drenched ballad Rubber Glove, finishing with the anthemic Bowie-flavored disco of Forget about the World. Also included is a dub-heavy reworking of Johnny’s stalker love song, Shalamon (Future Mix).
Rachel Alina, who co-produced Love is the Message with us and Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Madonna).
Starting July 28th, Screwdriver (I’m Sorry Michael) will be available for a free download in exchange for following Johnny on Twitter and liking Johnny Showcase and the Lefty Lucy Cabaret on Facebook.
