The Weeknd

Toronto R&B singer The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) is set to make his US live debut in NYC on September 15 at Skylight One Hanson. The performance is part of Vice's Upfront Extravaganza party in honor of the launch of their new URL Vice.com. The party also includes live and DJ sets by A-Trak, Tanlines, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Nick Zinner (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and Black Lips. Stay tuned for more details. All we could confirm so far is that this is happening. We can only assume that some sort of RSVP will pop up at some point.

The Weeknd has released two mixtapes this year, House of Balloons and Thursday, and expects to release a third, Echoes of Silence, this fall. Some tracks off both of those mixtapes are below...

--
The Weeknd - "High For This"

The Weeknd - "Lonely Star"

You know you're riding a trend when... there are two other bands with your same name.

This has serious potential to be one of the best shows of the year. Want to see The Weeknd and Tanlines tear that beautiful house down.

What's the deal with shitty music

I've honestly never had a problem getting into a vice show and I'm frumpy looking and not a coke dealer. Maybe they're just waiting to take a picture of me as a DON'T.
