Toronto jazz hop trio BADBADNOTGOOD have been playing US shows this month in support of their recently released BBNG2 which in addition to a number of originals, includes covers of Odd Future (who they've collaborated with), James Blake, My Bloody Valentine, and Kanye West. Last week, they stopped by Brooklyn Bowl in NYC and covered Beastie Boys in honor of MCA. As I mentioned on BV, they've got great arrangements for both the covers and the originals, and the entire trio are skilled musicians.
They're continuing to play shows, and will hit Chicago on Wednesday (May 9), for a performance at the Empty Bottle with El Is A Sound of Joy and DJ Greg D aka 'The Chef'. Advance tickets are on sale.
All dates, videos of the band, including some with Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean, and more at BrooklynVegan.
