Lauren Worsham and John Gallagher Jr.'s Bands to Join Forces at NYC's Mercury Lounge
Two rock bands featuring stage stars - John Gallagher Jr. (Tony Award winner for Spring Awakening, American Idiot, also HBO's Newsroom and 10 Cloverfield Lane) and Lauren Worsham (Tony nominee, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder) - will join forces at NYC's Mercury Lounge on 12/1.
Sky-Pony is a Brooklyn-based band that's been called "indie-pop aces" (New York Times) and "a beautiful mash-up of music, choreography, costumes, projections and drama" (Village Voice). It's led by the husband-and-wife team of Lauren Worsham and Tony nominated writer Kyle Jarrow (bookwriter of Broadway's SpongeBob SquarePants, also creator of the CW television series Valor). They're known for lushly-orchestrated, darkly ironic songs and shows which blur the lines between rock concert and theater. In the past they've collaborated with circus artists, burlesque performers, monologists, even a fortune teller - as well as for creating the original theater piece The Wildness at Ars Nova in 2016 (nominated for a Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical).

LAKES is a grunge-rock outfit led by Libby Winters (American Idiot) and John Gallagher Jr. Hooky melodies and pretty vocals over loud, fuzzy guitars give their songs a 90's grunge vibe through the lens of a teenage girl in her bedroom. Their debut EP Just to Feel the Feeling comes out 2019.
On December 1, they'll share the stage together. Plus there'll be special appearance from the reunited members of the glam rock band The Fabulous Entourage, a cult favorite on the downtown scene in the aughts!

Location: Mercury Lounge, 218 E Houston Street, NYC
