Hiatus Kaiyote

'70s cult soul artist Shuggie Otis is back in town this week for two shows, both of which are free. On Thursday (8/8) he'll play a lunchtime show (noon) at Metrotech Commons, which is the finale of BAM's 2013 R&B Festival. Then on Sunday (8/11) he'll play Central Park Summerstage with Jose James and Hiatus Kaiyote. That show starts at 7 PM.

Speaking of, Hiatus Kaiyote are from Melbourne, Australia and make laid back, jazzy R&B/soul with maybe just a little trip hop in there too. Questlove and Erykah Badu are fans and the band's new, very listable album, Tawk Tomahawk, is streamable in full, below. The album's final track, "Nakkamara," features Q-Tip and is probably the record's standout cut. Hiatus Kaiyote will also play a headlining show while here on Monday (8/12) at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

And speaking of Q-Tip, his #Offline party happens tonight (8/7) and every Wednesday at Output's Panther Room. The party starts at 10 PM and tickets are $10.

Meanwhile, Jose James (who plays the Summerstage show) also has other dates, including a just-announced NYC show with FaltyDL happening on November 22 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show are currently on AmEx presale, and a general on-sale begins Friday (8/9) at noon. All of his dates are listed below.

Just FYI, in the story itself, you said today's show started at 7.
We mistakenly believed that, so we just missed the show.
Thanks a bunch for your sloppy editing.
We can send you our completely useless tickets as a souvenir.

Thanks a bunch for your sloppy editing and poor writing. It just made our night. :)

Very interesting stuff... I kinda get the vibe of a more jazzy/smooth Dirty Projectors.

This guy was the original PRINCE. He is a mix of Sly Stone, and Foster Sylvers, but totally unique. Way ahead of the shit that was happening during 1973/74.

How good is the wallet on the snare! tried it out myself works a treat for cutting out overtones and getting a real concise sound. Have watched this like 20+ times :P

I'm really liking this group right about now. Even though they've been around a while, they are very new to me.

The rest of the Dallas Buyer's Club soundtrack was pretty much hipster trash, except this and a couple others. Only criticism I could think of for that movie would be the soundtrack, amazing otherwise.

Customers could get these kind of wonderful savings should they take some time to look for merchant discount coupons
