Dev Hynes may have lost his apartment earlier this week in a devastating fire but he hasn't lost his spirit. Perhaps as a way of giving back to fans who have shown him much support this week, he's playing a FREE NYC show Saturday night (12/21) at Cameo under his old Lightspeed Champion guise. It'll just be him solo and doors are 6 PM with the show over before 8 PM. You do need to RSVP.

Dev plays with his full Blood Orange band in NYC on February 6 at Webster Hall which is sold out.

Light speed champion was terrible and the new blood orange album is terrible. It looks like he hasn't gone far.

Its absurd how people are calling Dev Hynes a dude of extreme fashion, but it wasn't until recently that he adopted that new blood orange fashion to seem cooler to the masses.

Who the fuck is this guy?

who?

@10:35 who do you think isn't terrible? I bet you like 30 Seconds to Mars and Chris Gaines. Am I right? I know I am.

The new album is such crap cheesy pop. His last ep was good. I wanted to like the album, but it was a huge disappointment.

The last blood orange to the light speed champion, then with sky ferreira production, and solange was amazing. But, then this new album is just meh. meh meh

*correction on "The last blood orange to the light speed champion"

His ability to go from making terrible music as light speed champion to his last ep, then .........

@11:17 Good job finding a not-so-close to your quote from a single guy at a photo shoot. But why is it absurd? More importantly, why does it matter to you?

Dev should pick a fucking moniker and stick with it. for his own sake

but that said, if you're talking shit about Dev you have not seen him live. Motherfucker is for real.

But

How did the fire start in his apt?

This dude is milking this

Posted by Anonymous | December 21, 2013 1:03 PM

Definitely doing this as a thank you show to his fans who has been supportive during this rough week he just had.

guessing he's getting a cut of the bar or something b/c this will likely pack the room. probably cameo helping him out. good move on their part if so.

This dude totally burned down his own apartment. What better way to achieve success but to milk sympathy for your new band after your old solo act died a quick death

Posted by Anonymous | December 21, 2013 10:46 PM

Some of his music is okay and yeah, he's clearly a talented musician but it always seems like this guy is trying way too hard. A fashionable opportunist.
