« Beth Orton's new LP is out, playing NYC tonight w/ Sam Amidon; both added to marriage equality benefit | Flying Lotus & Death Grips playing NPR/WNYC CMJ showcase (which will also stream from Le Poisson Rouge) »
Last night in "ALSO", we pointed out:
Death Grips finally announced a tour! It doesn't include any NYC dates at the moment, but they tweeted, "more tour dates to be announced! (pretty much all the missing spots being mentioned)."WELL, that part about no NYC dates, didn't last long because Death Grips have announced a November 12 show at Music Hall of Williamsburg (the same venue they were supposed to play last time when they cancelled their whole tour). Tickets for the new NYC show go on sale Friday at noon.
You can also make money off the new Death Grips album.
Speaking of BitTorrent and Death Grips, the rap-noise crew are the most downloaded artist on BitTorrent for the first half of 2012, with over 34 million downloads, beating Counting Crows, DJ Shadow, and Pretty Lights.
