The Streets, who were scheduled to play @ Terminal 5 with El-P tonight, but cancelled their tour.
It should be an interesting scene on Governors Island Saturday aka Bass Island. You can see the set times HERE. "Survival Guide" HERE. Prefuse 73 goes on 4th at 6. Then Z-Trip, then Lupe Fiasco and finally Bassnectar. Curious, but not enough to spend $50? We're giving away tickets on Facebook.
Nancy Whang, who you know from LCD Soundsystem, The Juan Maclean, and Shit Robot DJs at Union Pool AND Public Assembly tonight. Miho Hatori plays live at the Public Assembly show, as she does Saturday at 285 Kent with Kool Keith.
Lia Ices, who played Mercury Lounge last night (8/11) has a new video for "Love Is Won." Check it out below.
