As part of FranceRocks Summerfest 2017, a French music festival co-presented by The Bureau Export, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, and France Rocks, in partnership with a network of major venues and institutions, the Lincoln Center presents Chocolate Genius on June 29, 2017.

New York–based singer and songwriter Marc Anthony Thompson, known in the New York underground for an eclectic mix of R&B, jazz, folk, rock, and electronic music, brings his reclusive alter ego Chocolate Genius out of hiding for this live show. Six years after what was largely thought to be the final release for Chocolate Genius, Thompson released Truth vs. Beauty on French indie label No Format in 2016. Tonight he renders the albums plaintive melodies, rock breaks, and ambient soundscapes with a progressive-minded band, including Ray Rizzo on drums, Simon Hanes on bass, Oren Bloedow on guitar, and Thomas “Doveman” Bartlett on keyboard.
