MURS, fresh off of his first haircut in seven years (!), will play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Oct 15th as part of a BluRoc Records showcase, the record label division of Damon Dash's DD172. Tickets go on sale Fri at noon.
Support will come from a mix of other artists under the BluRoc imprint Tabi Bonney, Skibeatz (aka Ski), McKenzie Eddy, Sean O'Connell, and Da$h. Stream material from some of those bands below, or you can download the new mixtape from Da$h called ChRon Burgundy at the DD172 site.
MURS is currently working on the new collaborative LP with Skibeatz, Love and Rockets Vol. 1: The Transformation, but is also working on his final LP with 9th Wonder. Details on name/release date are forthcoming. MURS teamed with Terrace Martin as Melrose earlier this year.
Check out video of MURS getting his first haircut in 7 years (!) below.
