Chief Cleopatra at Antone’s

By: Laurie Gallardo

Today’s featured AMM track snagged a well-deserved spot on a recent KUTX Song of the Day. Our February Artist of the Month Chief Cleopatra reaches interstellar heights with “Fortuity,” featuring a backing band that includes Curtis Roush and Jack O’Brien (Bright Light Social Hour). All of this starry brilliance and more can be found on the Chief’s upcoming release Luna, out March 4.

Check out the fab Frank Weysos-directed “Fortuity” video, then see Chief Cleopatra on an incredible line-up supporting Houston-based rapper and musician KenTheMan tonight, Saturday Feb. 12, at Antone’s. The bill features Mama Duke, DJ Mahealani, and ultimate hostess-with-the-mostess Miss Jaywalk. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the music starts at 9 p.m.
