I mean, if you keep buying the tickets, I have to keep doing the shows. My third show at Madison square garden on Saturday is nearly sold out. That happened even faster than the show before it. And both of the shows that I've done there have been intensely fun. So I'm going to add another show.
Louis CK has added a fourth Madison Square Garden show, this one on January 27. Tickets are on sale now.

bjork

Björk's new album, Vulnicura, will be out in March. Though it's rare that an announced festival headliner announces more shows in the same town before the festival happens, it turns out she's actually playing SIX NYC shows before Governors Ball. Around the album's release (and during the same time as her MoMA retrospective), our favorite Icelandic artist will play at Carnegie Hall on March 7 & 14 (both noon matinees), and at City Center on March 25 (8 PM) and March 28 (noon matinee) and April 1 (8 PM) and April 4 (noon matinee). Tickets for Carnegie Hall and City Center will go on sale Friday, January 23 at 11 AM with a fan presale starting Monday (1/19) 11 AM.

Bjork tweeted that Arca, who contributed heavily to her new album, will join her at the matinee shows.

All dates, including Governors Ball, are listed below...

A review of Etienne de Crécy's 1996 Super Discount EP spawned the term "French Touch" which would soon be applied to Daft Punk, Air, Cassius and other electronic acts of the late '90s. Crécy has a new album, Super Discount 3, that's out next week (1/20) via Ultra Music. It features contributions from Madeline Follin (Cults), De La Soul's Pos & Dave, Baxter Dury, Kilo Kish, and fellow Frenchman Alex Gopher. You can stream the whole album ahead of its release via iTunes and you can watch a Pitchfork TV documentary on Crécy's Super Discount series below.

Crécy will be in the U.S. next month for a few Super Discount DJ gigs, including NYC at Verboten on February 12 with All Dom Wrong. Tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed below...

Joey

As discussed, Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ releases his debut album B4.DA.$$ next week (1/20), and plays a hometown release show on Monday (1/19) at Rough Trade, which you have to buy the album to get into. It turns out that's actually one of three NYC shows he's playing that week.

The following night, he'll play Williamsburg dance club Verboten (1/20) with his Pro Era pals and special guests, Statik Selektah, Relly Rell, Pow P & Kool, DJ Red Alert, and guest FunkFlex. Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg is hosting. Tickets are on sale.

Then on Thursday (1/22) at Webster Hall, he'll be the guest at Just Blaze's weekly House Party, along with Statik Selektah. Tickets are on sale for that one too.

Just Blaze has been killing it with his guests lately. He had breakout duo Rae Sremmurd last night (1/15). Anyone catch that? That's a picture from the show above, via Webster Hall's Facebook, where you can browse many more pics of last night.

Joey appeared live in NYC last night too, guesting at the Phony PPL show at SOB's. You can see a picture of that above as well (via). Today, he and producer Statik Selektah dropped another new track from his album, "Run Up On Ya," which features Elle Varner and Action Bronson (who has his own new album and upcoming NYC show on the way). Listen below...

D'angelo

Neo-soul great D'Angelo finally released his new album, Black Messiah (his first since 2000), at the tail-end of 2014. It got huge acclaim, and while it came out too late to make most year-end lists, it did top the Pazz + Jop Poll. D'Angelo will be heading to Europe in February for a tour there, but before leaving the US, he plays NYC's historic Apollo Theater on February 7. Tickets for that show go on sale at 10 AM on Wednesday (1/21), with Apollo A-LIST, Ticketmaster, and WBLS presales beginning at 10 AM on Monday (1/19).

All dates are listed, with a stream of one of the new album's songs, below...

The War on Drugs, whose 2014 album Lost in the Dream did very well in countless year-end lists and on the Pazz & Jop Poll (we loved it too), have announced another tour in support of it. We already knew they'd be at a few festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo and NYC's Governors Ball, and now a ton of club dates have been announced too. Most US dates are with another great Philly band, Hop Along, who have a new album on Saddle Creek coming and who just played our Red Bull Sound Select show this week.

No NYC stops besides Governors Ball announced at the moment. All dates are listed, with the video of their recent Fallon performance, below...
