The Creepy Jingles + Jennifer Owen of Owen Cox Dance + Nate Holt of Asterales + New & MidCoastal Releases

Mark plays more New & MidCoastal Releases from: Static Phantoms, Cuee, Miki P, The Creepy Jingles, Fritz Hutchison, Asterales with Ghostmind, and with Kirsten Paludan, The Black Creatures, Effie, Quite Frankly, and Helen Gillet.

At 10:30, Jennifer Owen, Co-Founder and Artistic Director of Owen / Cox Dance Group joins us to talk about “Skin” a world premiere music and dance collaboration with New Orleans-based cellist Helen Gillet. “Skin” features choreography by Jennifer Owen and musician Brad Cox. Helen Gillet is a singer-songwriter and surrealist-archeologist exploring synthesized sounds, texture, and rhythm using an acoustic cello. For someone with her varied background, New Orleans, with its mix of cultures and musics, seemed like a natural place to call home. Gillet’s solo performance is known for its enigmatic quality as she fabricates each song with innovative use of the cello and true mastery of live looping technology. “Skin” performances include: Friday, and Saturday April 1 and 2 at 8:00 PM and Sunday, April 3 at 2:00 PM, at City Stage Theatre, Union Station, 30 W Pershing Rd, KCMO. Owen/Cox Dance Group is a 501(c)3 not for profit corporation. http://www.owencoxdance.org

At 11:00 Mark welcomes The Creepy Jingles: Jocelyn Olivia Nixon, (Singer/Songwriter, Guitar, Piano); Travis McKenzie (Lead Guitar), Nick Robertson (Drums); and Andrew Woody (Bass) who will share details about their debut full-length album, TAKE ME AT MY WORDPLAY on High Dive Records. The Creepy Jingles are led by Jocelyn Olivia Nixon, a transgender wordsmith who charms with razor wit and dazzles with her lyrical acrobatics “centering on themes of identity, strained relationships, social media madness, meme magic, pandemic paranoia, paid off political pundits, backyard bullies and barking up the wrong tree.” Nick, Travis, and Andrew bring first class musicianship and creativity, helping Nixon paint the perfect picture of colors and sounds that don’t stay in the lines, blending Brit-Pop melodies that dance around the landscape of surf, NY garage rock, psychedelia and folk music. The Creepy Jingles play Rino, 314 Armour Rd, North Kansas City, MO on March 25, 2022 at 7:00 PM, for their Album Release Show with Sisterbot and Stephonne. The Creepy Jingles play Replay Lounge on March 26, 2022 at 10:00 PM with Miki P & The Swallowtails, LK Ultra, and LYXE. More info at: Instagram @thecreepyjingles
