Sleep No More, the Macbeth-based haunted hotel immersive theater experience thing that's been going on in Chelsea on an indefinitely extended run, has famously incorporated many surprise musical acts into its mysterious twilight adventures. A musical experience in and of itself - 1930s jazz streams through hidden speakers in the hallways alongside terrifying Hitchcock soundtracks, and the witches' blood orgy features the best techno mashup I've ever heard - Sleep No More has drawn the attention of many musicians, including Bjork, Florence Welch, Dita Von Teese, and Wyclef Jean, who feel compelled to become a part of the theatrics by contributing a musical performance, premeditated or otherwise.

Recently, Jim James of My Morning Jacket (who released his solo album Regions of Light and Sound of God on 2/5) actually listed Sleep No More as one of his tour stops, and performed to a ballroom of plague-mask-wearing fans. His performance of "State of the Art" was filmed and edited alongside James' gushing about the show and various creepy shots of stuffed deer heads and old telephones. Is the "McKittrick Hotel" (the moniker of the warehouse-turned-haunted-house) turning into the most badass music venue ever? We kind of hope so. Maybe it will even compel them to bring the ticket price down a little? ...Please?
