Last we spoke to St. Lucia (aka Jean-Philip Grobler) he was waxing poetic about the current state of pop music (“I feel like there is a good pop revival happening now”), where he gets his inspiration from, and how he came up with the name for his musical project (pins and a map were involved). That was nearly two years ago, and St. Lucia’s career and music has been on a steady uptick ever since. Proof: He’s playing four shows at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg next week, each of which sold out pretty easily.
Proceeding those sell outs St. Lucia is playing a surprise show TONIGHT at Westway (75 Clarkson St.), and we have tickets! Want them? Here’s how they can be yours…
