Deon Jones is a musician and artist with one of the most important voices of his generation. Jones created his first recording project—a powerful rendition of “Sunday Bloody Sunday” featuring Academy Award-winning composer Jon Batiste—after being shot by police in the face with a rubber bullet during the 2020 summer protests. The recording, which is included in Glenn Kaino’s In the Light of a Shadow, has been hailed by Rolling Stone & U2’s Bono as “transformative” and by The Boston Globe as “a performance with clarifying power.” Jones brings his transformative energy—and nine-piece band—to the Hunter Center previewing his upcoming debut album REVIVAL, an irresistible blend of soul, rock, and gospel.

Catch a preview of what’s to come when Jones pops up in Kaino’s Building 5 exhibition at 2pm. Then be sure to stop by The MASS MoCA Store at 2:30pm where Glenn Kaino will be signing copies of his exhibition catalogue This Book is a Promise.
