MIA Bowl

The above Tweet by M.I.A. can be interpreted as attempt to make good on her promise to NYC. She was criticized for ignoring that promise in her recent tour announcement.

I wouldn't worry too much about still having your Hard Fest ticket though (she said to keep them to get in to the free show), because Brooklyn Bowl holds signifigantly less people than Governors Island, so I'm guessing there will be a new system to get in. I'm also assuming the Brooklyn Bowl show will happen before M.I.A.'s mother gets in the country. Stay tuned for the date announcement (or keep checking your emailz).

Oh, and M.I.A. is on tour NOW. The Terminal 5 show is Monday. Tickets are still available.

what an asshole. VIP and guest list will take up 80% of the capacity.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 1:44 PM

that's a 21+ venue and like 50% of hard was 5 yrs old probably. weak for them.

Will she just go away already.

Looks increasingly like Brooklyn Bowl is just about the right sized venue for her incredible disappearing fanbase.

Shit records + Shit live show + Shit attitude = no success.

Glad to see T5 hasn't sold out. The people are speaking with their wallets.

So that was what that weird painting/mini-billboard AD Brooklyn Bowl had for her was all about. That didn't look out of place and innappropriate

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 4:03 PM

Seriously, somebody should get her with a little free hummus in the hair for this lovely free show.

Cause when the critics have been blasting you for sound quality issues, nothing to redeem yourself than the crisp acoustics at A BOWLING ALLEY

Just found this on another website called hiphopdx:

The singer offers 18+ fans a chance to see her live for free, but could be anytime in the next two weeks.

International superstar and Interscope Records artist M.I.A. has announced that she will be performing at popular venue, New York's Brooklyn Bowl. Adding mystery to the event, M.I.A.'s team has simply stated that the performance will be "within the next two weeks."

The event will be an 18 and older show, and will be limited to first come, first serve. The venue plays host to frequent events featuring the likes of Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, ?uestlove and Kid Sister.
