Broken Social Scene at Williamsburg Waterfront in 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Broken Social Scene will be coming to NYC this week to perform on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (6/6), and they'll be performing with collaborator/sometimes BSS member Feist. They'll be playing the song "Almost Crimes" from You Forgot It In People, which Feist sings on.
After that, Feist will hang around NYC to play Governors Ball, which goes down on Randall's Island 6/7-9) this weekend (she plays on the Friday at 6:45 PM). Single day tickets for Governors Ball are still available.
Meanwhile, Broken Social Scene will be heading back to Toronto (and after Governors Ball, Feist will too) for FIeld Trip Music & Arts Festival, which happens on Saturday (6/8), and is in celebration of the tenth anniversary of Arts & Crafts, the label BSS is signed to and which was co-founded by BSS member Kevin Drew. In addition to being the tenth anniversary of Arts & Crafts, it's also the tenth anniversary of Broken Social Scene's breakthrough record, You Forgot It In People and it's been announced that the band will be performing the album in full at Field Trip. A short note from Kevin Drew about playing the album was posted to Field Trip's site. Tickets for the festival are still available.
