This post absolutely must start with an apology to you all. Seriously hoping for a late pass. Hopefully, some of you knew that Chocolate Genius nee Marc Anthony Thompson was on tour with Citizen Cope for the month of October in support of his album Swansongs that dropped in September. And hopefully some of you caught him on tour. Anyway, the good news, at least for New Yorkers, is that he’ll be at Joe’s Pub next weekend.
As a title, Swansongs is apropos since, as you’ll hear, this is his last album as Chocolate Genius. He mentions that he always thought this project had a shelf life and apparently he’s staying true to that.
Here’s a 20-minute interview/performance he did back in August on WNYC’s Soundcheck with John Schaefer.
Info on the Joe’s Pub shows (at 1130pm both nights) is here.
