“Sometimes I Wanna Dance” Lonnie Holley

Lonnie Holley releases his new full-length MITH on September 21st via Jagjaguwar. For the accompanying video, “Sometimes I Wanna Dance,” Lonnie and a film crew created their own juke joint, Tonky’s Rocket Ship, in the middle of Atlanta and called up some of the city’s blues legends to play the band. The video nods to both the immersive documentaries of Les Blank and the in-the-mix feel of 70s Altman. But more than anything, the message is clear: Free your ass and the mind will follow.

Having recently wrapped up a tour with Animal Collective, Lonnie will continue to tour throughout 2018. This Friday, he’ll perform at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a part of the History Refused To Die exhibit. Lonnie Holley starts the next leg of his tour, on September 14th in New York City, NY.
