Neon Indian at Governors Ball (more by Chris La Putt)
Neon Indian

826NYC, the non-profit writing center for NYC students, is teaming up with Bowery to present 'The Prom You Were Promised: A Benefit for 826NYC' at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 13. The event is designed to recreate a prom night with formal attire and DJ sets by Yeasayer, BAIO (of Vampire Weekend), Neon Indian, and CANT (Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear) (they're all DJ sets). It will be hosted by Jason Sudeikis of SNL. Tickets are on sale now.

You can also catch CANT (the actual band, not a DJ set) for free at the free Spotify show with Blood Orange at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (8/28).

Just cuz your in a band, does not mean you are a good DJ. U am suck of hearing these so-called "DJ's" trainwreck every mix. Can we get a real DJ up in these parts anymore? Like where is DJ Soulslinger? Where is DJ Funk? Where is Green Velvet? Where is Gonzo? Shucks... I'll even settle for Keoki.

142pm doesn't have a job but he doesn't care because he gets his weekly allowance still from his parents!

Can't move from Hipsterville either.

Poor little soul.

Who invited vampire Weekend to the prom? I went to this show last time, and they fucking ruined the prom. Picture the scene, everyone dancing away to killer dj sets from Andy Butler and then Special Disco Version...then someone had the fucking genius idea was to let Vampire Weekend dj over them, and kill absolutely all buzz in the place...It was actually a great dance party until they ruined it.
