soulBlog: Starship Mantis Album Release; soulshowmike’s Shows of Note, week of 6/2/19

Starship Mantis Album Release 6/1/19

Pittsburgh funk act Starship Mantis pulled out all stops for their Mr. Smalls Theatre event on Saturday. To celebrate the release of their second release, “Black Hole Radio AM/FM,” they invited Markila Sherman, Lyndsey Smith, Steeltown Horns and Subha Das to perform with them. As I told frontman Langston Kelly at night’s end, this had been a show of national quality.

Roger “Feralcat” Romero, also with a 6/1 album release, opened the night. We’ll cover that in an another soulBlog later this week.
