Alt-J, Royal Canoe @ Hammerstein Ballroom - 9/12/2013
UK act Alt-J have had quite a last 12 months. This time last year, the band were playing Glasslands and then Bowery Ballroom. That was before their debut album, An Awesome Wave, won the 2013 Mercury Prize, which was the catalyst for an impressive rise that has seen them in NYC this spring at Webster Hall and Terminal 5, to Governors Ball on the summer festival circuit and, most recently, Hammerstein Ballroom (9/14) and Central Park (9/15) over the weekend (both sold out). The Hammerstein show was with Canadian band Royal Canoe and pictures from that show are in this post.
Before those shows, Alt-J stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (9/12) to play their hit "Tessellate" and you can watch that below. Royal Canoe will be back in NYC on October 2 when they open for Tricky. More pictures from the Hammerstein show below...
