Nonesuch Records released the anticipated self-titled EP from Carolina Chocolate Drops and Luminescent Orchestrii on Tuesday, January 25 and now a performance by the groups is out.
The groups along with beatboxer Adam Matta performed "Short Dress Gal" at the Bowery Ballroom in New York last year and it was filmed with multiple cameras. The result is an funky, sharp version of the old jazz tune. Watch it below.
Carolina Chocolate Drops will perform at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh on Saturday, August 27. Details are still "to be announced."
