For well over a year, Macon Mann has curated the Wednesday night jazz sessions at the downstairs Rabbit Hole lounge at Vagabond.
He’s played the club as a lyrical keyboard sideman, and had a shifting lineup play his well-crafted small group compositions. But he has never unleashed his psycho-poultry-rapper alter-ego "McChicken" in the space. Until now.
Thursday, March 22, he’s and has assembled a capable backing quintet to play the songs of his new mixtape, “Bung Bung Boolin.’” It’s fair to say that that title is both preview and fair warning of what to expect. The greasy, humorous, frenetic flow of McChicken is not for everyone, but, to fake-quote Abraham Lincoln, for the folks that like this kind of thing this is exactly the sort of thing they will like.
