A highly anticipated, sold-out show is headed to the Electric Factory this Saturday, January 30th. Jack’s Mannequin has reunited for a 10-year anniversary tour celebrating their debut album Everything in Transit (2005). The band’s lead singer and pianist, Andrew McMahon, has recently gained popularity with his newest project Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness, and the single “Cecilia and the Satellite.” However, Andrew McMahon has been in the music scene for close to two decades from his time with his band Something Corporate, to Jack’s Mannequin, to a solo EP, and now with Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness.
Tickets for the Philadelphia show, and most shows on this tour, sold out in minutes in December, so the energy on Saturday will definitely be high as the reunited Jack’s Mannequin takes the crowd at the Electric Factory on a journey back to 2005.
Joining Jack’s Mannequin on this tour is Leisure Cruise, of Brooklyn, NY. This duo is comprised of Dave Hodge, of Broken Social Scene, and Leah Siegel, of Firehorse. According to an article from Interview Magazine, the two created Leisure Cruise “during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy to create a positive apocalyptic synth-pop band separate from their individual musical projects.” They released their self-titled album in 2014. According to their Facebook page, their genre is “awesome,” and that they are indeed. With groovy rhythms and sultry vocals, you’ll sure to be dancing around your room.
