At 10:30 we welcome Jade Green & Xavier Martin of The Black Creatures who began working together in 2013. The Black Creatures blur the boundaries of hip-hop, dance, R&B, soul, and EDM, telling stories of real life, and the struggle for equality. Jade’s incredible vocals reveal her background in opera, and her honest lyrics are both personal and political. Jade can interpret soul, jazz, hiphop, and pop. Xavier Martin started music as a violinist, and has transitioned into a co-songwriter, producer, beat-maker, keyboardist, vocalist, engineer, and style maker. The Black Creatures recently were the recipients of the Charlotte Street Foundation 2022 Generative Performing Artist Fellowship Grant and Award. The Black Creatures play recordBar, Sunday, April 24, at 7:00 PM with Saving Miles Lemon, North By North, and Quite Frankly. More info at: www.theblackcreatures.com

At 11:00 Mark talks with Jesse Kates of The Sexy Accident, about the band’s 15th studio release, NEW ROULETTE. The new EP’s lead track, “I’m Feeling Dancy,” features Sisterbot and includes a cover of “Wind Flirter” by True Lions. New Roulette comprises six tracks. The Sexy Accident play an Album Release Show, Saturday, April 23, at 6:30 PM at The Warwick Theatre, 3927 Main Street, Kansas City, MO., with Sisterbot, and Comedy by Briana Van Deusen. The show is for all ages. The Warwick is an historic KC building in the heart of midtown, built in 1912 as a 1,000 seat cinema.
