The Current Presents: ZULUZULUU and Nooky Jones with Special Guest Lady Midnight

September 23

7:00 pm

$15 to $40

Named one of First Avenue’s Best New Bands 2014, ZULUZULUU are a collective of six musicians/producers: MMYYKK, Proper-T, Greg Grease, DJ Just Nine, ∆RT P∆RTÉ and Trelly Mo. They have armed themselves with synths, drum machines and various instruments to bring a new, exploratory modern sound influenced by the greats of funk, soul and jazz with electronic excursions, hard grooves, Afro-futurism and soulful melodies. The band says, “We see ZULUZULUU as a vessel, a spiritual, sonic culmination of our experiences and influences from our ancestors.”

Nooky Jones’s soulful sound has been described by the Star Tribune as “Minnesota’s freshest baby making music.” The band has made a name for themselves wowing crowds in local rooms like First Avenue and The Fitzgerald, but has also taken their hard-hitting show to audiences throughout the region. With their debut album on the horizon (due out in July) and plans in place for more extensive touring, 2017 is set to be the band’s breakout year.

Lady Midnight is a multidisciplinary vocalist, songwriter, artist, educator, and descendant of Afro and Indigenous healers, musicians, and activists against violence. Her works speak to contemporary issues and analysis the collective and individual trauma to provide a space for reflection and healing.
