My Morning Jacket just keep adding more and more goodies to their upcoming “Unstaged” performance! The band just announced Grammy-winning singer Erykah Badu and actress Rachel Dratch (ex-Saturday Night Live player) will feature in the show. Tune in Tuesday, May 31 at 9 p.m. ET (so west-coasters will have to join at 6 p.m.) to see the concert live-streamed via YouTube.

The band is also sending out a few requests to fans. They are looking for artsy eyeball shots that will be integrated into the stream, and you can send those to the MMJ YouTube channel. And they’re asking fans attending the show in Louisville to dress up to the nines to match the prestigious venue, the Louisville Palace Theatre.

The show coincides with the May 31 release of MMJ’s 6th album, Circuital, and the beginning of their summer tour. See tour dates below.

“Unstaged” is an original series from American Express in collaboration with Youtube and Vevo. Watch the show on My Morning Jacket’s Youtube channel, here.
