Willie Nelson's son, The Particle Kid
Willie Nelson’s son plays under moniker name The Particle Kid at Smiley’s Saloon
* Monday, May 29, 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Willie Nelson coined his son Micah the “Particle Kid,” after he mispronounced a “prodigal son” greeting. The Particle Kid is on tour year round headlining shows around the world. He has opened for The Flaming Lips, Tinariwen, Margo Price, and Sheryl Crow, and been part of the line up for Luck Reunion, UTOPiAfest, and the Outlaw Music Festival.
Micah is a composer and a multimedia artist. He has a remarkable output that spans the creative spectrum unlike few others. This Los-Angeles based visionary produces art under the moniker Particle Kid. Micah finds no boundaries in all of his creativity!!
” I fell in love with the alchemy of sound and vision.”
Particle Kid has released six albums of original music, most recent being Time Capsule, a 26-song musical journey through time, space, and consciousness. It features guest appearances from Micah’s dad Willie Nelson on three tracks including Die When I’m High (Halfway to Heaven) Jim James, Sean Ono Lennon, J Mascis, Margo Price, The Lovely Eggs.
His previous albums – self-titled debut Particle Kid, Everything Is Bullshit, Particle War, Window Rock, Live! Underground – are just part of the catalog of work Nelson has amassed with other artists and musicians. He often joins his brother’s band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and is part of Neil Young’s band, touring and recording with Young as well as part of his full-length film Paradox.
For Record Store Day in 2018, he released Lucky Wheel, a split 12” vinyl collaboration with punk legend and X co-founder John Doe. He created the cover art on Willie’s recent studio album First Rose of Spring. (Willie coined Micah “Particle Kid,” when he misspoke a “prodigal son” greeting.)
On tour year round, Particle Kid has headlined shows around the world as well as opened for The Flaming Lips, Tinariwen, Margo Price, and Sheryl Crow, and been part of the line up for Luck Reunion, UTOPiAfest, and the Outlaw Music Festival.
