Yo, got any plans tonight? We do. We’ll be getting cozy on the couch ‘round 8, flipping the flat-screen over to The CW, and catching our song “Rolling Down Like Thunder” when it appears on Supergirl! The song off of our Usage Fee EP will be featured on the episode titled “Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk”. Watch the episode live, stream it on the CW app, or ask them to change the channel at the bar – just let us know what you think.
See you tonight!
Supergirl | Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk
Monday February 20th | 8 P.M. EST | The CW
When Mr. Mxyzptlk (guest star Peter Gadiot), a magical imp, shows up on Earth and declares his love for Kara (Melissa Benoist), she tries to let him down easy, thinking him harmless. However, he decides it’s a challenge and starts to wreak havoc on National City. Mon-El (Chris Wood) has seen beings like Mr. Mxyzptlk on Daxam and knows how dangerous they can be. He and Kara argue over how to get rid of Mr. Mxyzptlk, further straining their relationship.
Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie (Floriana Lima) celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together.
Soul brothers and sisters!

This year is coming to a close but we may have one more big announcement – keep your ear to the ground and eyes peeled on The Soul Enterprise!
Get on our mailing list for The State of The Sh-Booms – tour dates, new releases, and the whatnot. We’re not gonna blow up that inbox and we’ll never sell off your contact info.
Central Florida’s The Sh-Booms have taken a love for soul, rock ‘n’ roll, and throwing a party to create a unique, garage-soul sound of their own.
The seven-piece soul enterprise – comprised of Al “The Thump” Ruiz, The Supreme Queen Mizz Bren, Kevin “The Skin Blaster” Connolly, Davis “Twinkle Toes” Schleicher, Mike “The Slush Pump” Ortiz, and Nick “The Licks” Walsh – are a horn-fueled, soul-soaked presence on the stage, which they’ve shared with national acts such as Lee Fields, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, KRS-One, and Candlebox. Their fresh brand of garage soul has been recognized locally as well, as Orlando Weekly’s “Best Soul Act” for the past four years running.
Growing up immersed in a world of soul and doo-wop, raised by parents who have been known to get down a time or two on the dance floor of American Bandstand, Ruiz formed The Sh-Booms in 2011, looking to inject new energy into his music. The group quickly became known for their live shows – sweaty, high-energy sets accompanied by a fair share of dancing and whiskey – and their first EP, 1.2.3!, was released in 2013. The sound and lineup of The Sh-Booms have evolved since, most recently with the addition of front-woman Mizz Bren. The Supreme Queen, who was previously signed to Justin Timberlake’s Tenman Records and contributed backing vocals on his album, The 20/20 Experience, joined The Sh-Booms in early 2015.
The Sh-Booms will release a five-song EP in March of 2016 which they recorded with GRAMMY-nominated producer Alan Armitage (Boyz II Men) and was mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, The Kills). For booking, publicity, or press inquiries, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
