Galactic returning to the Pageant on Wednesday, March 14

The New Orleans funk/jazz/hip-hop band Galactic (pictured) is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, March 14 at The Pageant. Los Angeles funk band Orgone will open the show.

The gig will be almost a year to the day since Galactic's last appearance here at the same venue, and as with last year's show, they're bringing along some guests - specifically, vocalist Corey Glover of the rock band Living Color and trombonist Corey Henry of the Rebirth Brass Band, who also guested on their last show here.

This time, they'll be touring behind a new album, Carnivale Electricos, which the press release says explores "the connections between the Mardi Gras in their native New Orleans and the mighty megacarnivals of Brazil" and is set for release on February 21 by the Anti- label.

Tickets for Galactic at The Pageant will be $25 for general admission, with a $2 surcharge for minors, and go on sale at 5:00 p.m., Friday, December 9 via the Pageant box office and Ticketmaster.
