Great Caesar, a chamber rock band with a touch of soul, has had quite a week. Last Friday, they performed on Audiotree in Chicago before playing at Uncommon Ground in Edgewater. Earlier this week, they were in Iowa where John-Michael Parker, frontman for Great Caesar and National Dream Director for the education initiative The Future Project, guest lectured for David Gould’s Life Design course at the University of Iowa. The band rocked at the Mill in Iowa City on Wednesday evening.
Tonight, Great Caesar is back home in Brooklyn and playing at the Knitting Factory (8pm, 361 Metropolitan Ave., $12). The show will feature all of the songs from their anthemic upcoming, Jackson’s Big Sky, which will be released on March 25. Using Parker’s work with The Future Project as a lens, I asked him some questions about Great Caesar.
