With My Morning Jacket’s upcoming American Express “Unstaged” performance just around the corner–Tuesday to be exact–the band revealing more details about the show. The May 31 YouTube and VEVO-sponsored live stream Louisville concert, set to air at 9pm EST, will feature Grammy-award-winning  singer Erykah Badu and actress Rachel Dratch.

In addition the group is asking fans to send in artistic pictures of their eyeballs to be shown as part of the live stream, as well as requesting attendees to dress up in fancy clothes in order to match the grandeur of the historic Louisville Palace Theater.

“We are incredibly honored that Todd Haynes has agreed to direct this show for us,” said lead singer Jim James. “We can’t wait to immerse ourselves in his creative vision and masterful take on this live-streamed performance. Fans will certainly be in for a magical and surreal ride.”
