Glitch Mob

Honestly, I'm a little mind-blown right now. Phantogram and RJD2 opened for The Glitch Mob, and they were nothing short of incredible. I was surprised by how people didn't really seem to know RJD2 though, because when we got there, there was a lot of talking going on and not much dancing. It was still really beautiful, but I'm just surprised more people weren't dancing...

Phantogram also blew me away, with their fly lead singer, Sarah Barthel. Rocking a Karen O. hairstyle, she headbanged, and played the hell out of the keyboard. It was really hard to not dance to.

All I can say is that the Glitch Mob was able to make me dance way more than I expected, and that's all I'm ever trying to do. Their sound was perfect too, not too heavy on the bass. They also opened their set with Daft Punk, which was probably the wisest move they could've made because it was such a crowd pleaser. -[Et Musique Pour Tous]

The Glitch Mob headlined the dance party (well, sort of) at Terminal 5 on Friday 7/22 with RJD2 and Phantogram. The show is part of The Glitch Mob's current and ongoing set of dates with Phantogram that puts them in Montreal tonight (7/27) at SAT.

The Glitch Mob recently released their new We Can Make The World Stop EP. Stream all three tracks at their site. All tour dates are below.

RJD2 returns to NYC to hit Webster Hall on September 2nd. The DJ/producer also has some other tour dates as well as a new project on the way:

Hey folks, I wanna let you all know that I've got a new group called Icebird, and my label is putting out our album on Oct. 11. I did all the production, and this awesome singer named Aaron Livingston (who sang "Crumbs off the Table" on The Colossus) did all the vocals. I'm pretty damn excited about how the album came out; we'll be giving away tracks starting august 2nd to preview. Stoked for you to hear it!
Look out for that LP on 10/11, and check out more pictures from Terminal 5, with all dates, below.

Terminal 5 is worse than Hitler

any B in shorts and a t-shirt getting crowd passed like that is definitely looking to have multiple sexual partners later that evening

Now if Hitler delivered his speaches at T5, THAT would've been a treat.

I heard that Frohawk had an orgy back-stage before the concert started. He initiated the orgy by asking a few people if they wanted hummus- soon men and women were scooping hummus off of his bare chest. Frohawk now calls hummus: The Orgy Maker.
