Pirate Signal continuing to make moves
From the sounds of it, the Pirate Signal has been working overtime. Fresh on the heels of wowing crowds at this year's Sundance film festival, preceded by a string of dates supporting 3OH!3 last fall, the act is headlining a stellar bill at the Marquis Theater this Saturday, March 14, that also features ManeRok, Air Dubai and Dante. We've also heard that Yonnas Abraham will be making a special appearance at the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band show the night before at the Bluebird, where he'll perform a few Pirate Signal songs with DJ Hot to Death as part of a lineup that also includes Reno Divorce and Nick Sullivan from American Relay.
Speaking of Hot to Death, he and Abraham have reportedly been collaborating on a new, unnamed project which will make its live debut on Friday, April 10, at the Bluebird, as part of a show starring the Presets. In between all this and a slew of dates warming up for other high-profile acts (P.O.S. last month, Zion I at the end of March and Too Short in May), Abraham and DJ A-What have somehow found time to shoot a video for "Hood Hop," a cut from Of Gods and Gangsters Volume 1, the mixtape lauded in last year's Moovers and Shakers, and are slated to begin shooting another video next week.
With any luck, the Pirate Signal's tireless grind may finally pay off in the form of a well-deserved record deal. We're pleased to report that on Friday, March 27, the group is heading to Kansas City, Missouri, to showcase for Mac Lethal's Black Clover Records. Congratulations, gentlemen. Break a leg.
