Tonight @ The Mercury Lounge (East Village)
20hrs / $10
Did you watch it? Fucking hell that’s hot. How could you not want to check it out? Super sexy Nomi Ruiz fronts the trio with a sultry style that borders androgyny while maintaining a fiercely feminine guile. Her honey smoked voice is matched with a stage presence that betrays her enslavement to the beat and rhythm. A body that writhes like hers is a body that knows the secrets of eternity. Co-alchemists turning manna into music are bassist Andrew Raposo and keyboardist Morgan Wiley who fuse disco, hip-hop, classic house and electro elements to both charge your spirit and pluck solitary chords.
It’s 8 o’clock on a Tuesday, what else have you got to do?
