Catch Mystery Skulls at Baby’s All Right This Friday


You might remember our interview with the Nickelodeon loving, tattoo covered, smooth talking singer/producer Luis Dubuc, a dude who left his hometown of Dallas, TX in search of a dream and never looked back. Well, this year has proved to young artists, who goes by the stage name Mystery Skulls, that taking a risk can pay off. Following a US tour alongside electro-funk duo Cherub, numerous European dates and the release of a hit single featuring Nile Rodgers and Brandy, Mystery Skulls is coming back to NYC, and this time he’s playing Baby’s All Right! Don’t miss your chance to see him in an intimate setting this Friday, as he’s unlikely to play these kinds of venues for much longer. You can get tickets HERE.
