At the stroke of midnight, Joe's Pub will turn into Joe's Club. There's a party, everyone’s invited, and wearing pants is optional. That’s because the eclectic and wildly entertaining hip-hop band known as Pants Velour takes control of the this renowned venue for a residency with a one-of-a-kind live experience you won't want to miss.
Pants Velour brings a wacko and irreverent blend of rap, pop, soul, comedy, drama, (and a whole lot of average-looking men and above-average looking women) to the Pub. The band is killer, the vocalists are world-class, and the rappers are…white. You can expect commotion, bewilderment, and significant contentment with your place in the world.
Pants Velour is signed to legendary hip-hop label Tommy Boy Entertainment and have shared the stage with hip-hop greats such as Mobb Deep, Naughty By Nature, and Talib Kweli, as well as pop acts like Magic! and Flobots.
At midnight, everybody in the Pub gets tipsy. Because when the Pants come on, the pants come off. #PantsOnJoe. Who is Pants Velour? What is Pants Velour? Only one way to find out...
“This lively New York septet draws mostly on today’spop-soul and yesterday’s hip-hop…The group’s four instrumentalists provide solid support, allowing the three vocalists to shift easily between pop, rap, rock, reggae and trip-hop.’” - The Washington Post
