PÃ©rez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and Poplife presented the tropical pop music of John Hancock III at the June PAMM Third Thursdays: Poplife Social. Guests enjoyed Hancock’s live performance, happy hour drinks and light bites from Stephen STARR catering including Miso Glazed Chicken Skewers, Pork Belly Bao Buns, Shrimp Chips and more. Poplife Social runs every third Thursday through September 2015.
John Hancock III makes tropical pop music for every season, ranging from spaced out Arthur Russell inspired grooves to hyped-up digital calypso. Best known as the lead singer of Miami bedroom pop pioneers ANR (Awesome New Republic), Hancock, or ‘MJ’ as he’s called by most, has produced music with multi-media artist Jillian Mayer, as well as scoring many wild works of the Borscht Film Festival. This year promises several new releases full of saccharine 60’s pop fed through an old computer, via the 10K Islands music collective.
