Kendrick & Chance with Earth Wind & Fire (photo via Max)
Kendrick Chance

Earth, Wind & Fire bassist Verdine White had never met Kendrick Lamar until he saw Lamar and Chance the Rapper at the side of the stage during their late-night set and the band invited them out to freestyle.

"I knew who he was, but it wasn't planned," White said afterwards. "We stayed up there -- what -- 90 minutes? We were only supposed to be up there 70 minutes. You know, you just go. You don't think about it, you just keep going. He's in the band right now." [USA Today]

As the review quoted above points out, there was some generation-crossing collaboration going on at Bonnaroo yesterday (6/12) when veteran R&B/soul/funk band Earth Wind & Fire brought out rappers Kendrick Lamar and Chance the Rapper during their set. You can check out a couple videos (via Pitchfork / Fake Shore Drive) below.

There was other generation crossing when Tears for Fears covered Radiohead's "Creep" (not for their first time) at the festival. We don't have a video of that at the moment, but we hear things got pretty emotional:

Bonnaroo continues today (6/13) with the Superjam, D'Angelo, Slayer, My Morning Jacket, Belle & Sebastian, Jamie xx, The War on Drugs, and more. If you're not there, you can stream the festival live, right HERE. Check out a recap of Thursday too.

Videos of Earth Wind, Fire, Kendrick & Chance below...

Governors Ball
Governors Ball
Governors Ball

Florence and the Machine were the first act to put on a show worthy of a headliner. Drenched in warm golden light, Florence hopped around on one leg as she led the crowd in sing-alongs of hits such as What the Water Gave Me and Shake It Out. Her performance felt quite reserved compared to that of St Vincent, who brought out a pink Aztex-style pyramid and two backing dancers in chrome jumpsuits before putting on the performance of the day. Tracks like Marrow felt hugely aided by her band's saturated, chunky and almost shoddy-sounding synths, while St Vincent danced in sync with her troupe, who tottered around like Daryl Hannah's dying replicant in Blade Runner. The crowd were addressed as "citizens of New York city" and she stopped proceedings for a Thomas Pynchon-esque short story about an imagined storm in New York in which you grab an Arthur Russell record and Susan Sontag's diaries and hide out in a cupboard. [The Guardian]
Annual NYC music festival Governors Ball went down this past weekend on Randall's Island. Day 1, Friday (6/5), had Drake's hits-filled set, Ezra Koenig's guest appearance during Chromeo's set, an unfortunate Rae Sremmurd injury, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Florence + the Machine, Ratatat, Death From Above 1979, Odesza, Rudimental and more.

Chromeo

Governors Ball 2015 began yesterday, including Drake, St. Vincent, My Morning Jacket and more. During Chromeo's set, they brought their old pal, Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig, to play VW's "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" into Chromeo's "Bonafide Lovin'" with the duo. Dave 1 began by saying "there's this guitar riff I like to play sometimes" and then played the "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" riff a couple of times. Finally Ezra walked on stage and said "Hey man... Dave I showed you the riff, man. It's really not that hard." Then Chromeo & Ezra went into the song.

Watch video of the whole thing going down, below...

Drake

"On June 5, day one of the three-day gathering -- the east coast's answer to Coachella -- many wondered whether [Drake] would shine during his headlining set, memories of his lukewarm California performances still fresh in peoples' minds. Fortunately for fans who trekked out to New York's Randall's Island, Drake has something to prove. And did he ever.

Drake took the stage with "Legend," the opening to his latest mixtape, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, launching into a 90-minute set that blazed through much of his catalog, including the tracks "Over," "Started From the Bottom," "Worst Behavior" and "0 to 100 / The Catch Up")." [Billboard]

Drake's full setlist and some Instagrams from his set can be perused below. We'll have a full set of pictures from day one coming soon including St. Vincent, My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, and Chromeo who brought out Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig during their set.

Earlier in the day, another hip hop set didn't go as well and Rae Sremmurd's Slim Jimmy left the fest in an ambulance.

Governors Ball continues today (Saturday) with sets from Bjork, Little Dragon, Ryan Adams, Future Islands, Kate Tempest, White Lung, Kiesza, Sharon Van Etten, a new stage show by Deadmau5 and more.

Some of the sets will be broadcast on SiriusXM.

If you're going, Sharon Van Etten has some tips.

Rae Srummerd

The first of three days of Governors Ball is just getting started, and though the little rain during their set was hardly a big deal, what happened to Rae Sremmurd on stage definitely was. As Billboard reports...

Slim Jimmy, one-half of the hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, fell offstage and seriously injured his leg minutes into the group's afternoon performance at the Governors Ball Music Festival on Friday (June 5).

Ten minutes into a set that began at 1:30, Rae Sremmurd performed their song "Unlock The Swag" when Slim Jimmy tumbled off a speaker in front of the crowd. The rapper was carried back onstage with the help of two security guards and placed behind the DJ booth.

His Rae Sremmurd partner, Swae Lee, cut off "Unlock The Swag" after a few bars to examine the situation. He then told the crowd, "This shit is pretty crazy. ... This n---a's leg is like, split open, I'm serious."

Slim Jimmy was later seen leaving the grounds in an ambulance, which may be where he is laying all bandaged up in this Instagram Rae Sremmurd posted:


@jxmmis is doing ok thanks to all the fans #GovernorsBallNYC2015

Glad to hear is doing ok! Check out an overhead video, showing Rae Sremmurd's impressive (and umbrella filled) early crowd, and some other pics, below.

Governors Ball continues today with sets by The Decemberists, St. Vincent, Ratatat, DFA 1979, Chromeo, My Morning Jacket, Drake and more. Some of it will be broadcast on SiriusXM.

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Governors Ball
It's the first day of annual three-day NYC festival Governors Ball on Randall's Island, and today's lineup is pretty solid with sets from Drake, Florence + the Machine, My Morning Jacket, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, Ratatat, Death From Above 1979, DIIV, Rae Sremmurd and more.

White Lung, Obliterations @ Knitting Factory
White Lung bring complexity and accessibility to punk without breaking the formula of short, loud, fast songs. It's some of the best stuff this genre has to offer right now. This is one of the GovBall afterparties so it's a late show (midnight) and also includes LA Southern Lord-signed hardcore band Obliterations (not to be confused with Norwegian Relapse-signed death metal band Obliteration).

Little Dragon @ Brooklyn Bowl
Yet another of the Governors Ball After Dark shows tonight, here's a chance to catch Swedish pop band Little Dragon in much smaller confines than usual, and play a few frames too. Sold out.

BC Camplight, The Rally, Tall Juan @ Rough Trade
Brian Christinzio has been making lightly psychedelic pop as BC Camplight for ten years or so, having released two albums in the late '00s. He was also in an early incarnation of The War on Drugs and played on Sharon Van Etten's Epic. He left the US for Manchester, England -- a move reflected in How to Die in the North, the first BC Camplight album in eight years, which came out via Bella Union earlier this year. Owing a little to Brian Wilson, '70s soft rock / singer-songwriters, and other influences, it's an ambitious, likeably weird record.

SBTRKT (DJ Set), Nick Hook, Dan Wender, Blacky II @ Verboten
This is still another GovBall afterparty(11 PM doors), and one that will keep you dancing all night long with SBTRKT in the DJ booth.

Atmosphere, Bishop Nehru @ Irving Plaza
Veteran alt-rap duo Atmosphere return to NYC, and making it a great double bill is promising Brooklyn newcomer Bisho Nehru. Why yes, this IS also a Governors Ball After Dark show (11:30 PM start).

People Under the Stairs @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Giving Atmosphere some competition is another underground hip hop group, People Under the Stairs, playing their own GovBall after show at the same time at MHOW.

Jedi Mind Tricks @ Bowery Ballroom
Whether or not you decide to hit Atmosphere or People Under the Stairs later on, underground rap fans can start their night off at Bowery Ballroom for Jedi Mind Tricks. The duo of Stoupe and Vinnie Paz are back together for the first time since Stoupe left in 2011, and they put out a new album this week.

Hysterese, Pleasure Industry, The Brass @ The Place
Germany's Hysterese make what you could accurately call pop punk, but in a rawer sense, kind of like The Marked Men. They're also darker than that band, but not at the expense of hooks. Tonight's their first-ever NYC show.

Guerilla Toss, Loud Boyz, Jackie @ Roll Up Motorcycle Garage
Bushwick Open Studios is throwing a party at Roll Up Motorcycle Garage tonight which exhibits photographs, illustrations, paintings and more from several local artists. There's also live music from art punks Guerilla Toss, garage punks Loud Boyz, and Jackie. It's free, and there's free food and booze too.

The Casualties, I.R.A., Iron Force, Agitator @ Acheron
Fresh off a big NJ show opening for D.R.I., NYC street punk vets The Casualties take over their hometown tonight with this much smaller Bushwick show.

Max's Kansas City 50th Anniversary Reunion @ Bowery Electric
Legendary now-closed NYC punk venue Max's Kansas City continues its 50th anniversary celebration tonight at the current home of many '70s-era NYC punks, Bowery Electric. Tonight's lineup has The Waldos, Testors (the original lineup featuring Sonny Vincent), New York Junk, Luigi & the Wiseguys and Love Pirates, with Bill Popp & the Tapes playing in the Map Room. There's also MC Jimi Lalumia, DJ Rob Select, and cameos by Steve Dior and Tammy Faye Starlight reprising her acclaimed off-broadway performance as Nico.

Dead Stars, Pet Sun, Monograms, The Glazzies @ Cake Shop
Dead Stars are celebrating the release of their new single "Calm Punk" which is another fine example of the band's fuzzy, hooky love of '90s indie rock.

Gramercy Arms @ HiFi Bar
Led by Dambuilders frontman Dave Derby, Gramercy Arms make classic, '70s-style pop with a rotating cast of guests. 2014's The Season of Love featured Tanya Donelly, Lloyd Cole, Doug Gillard and more...so who knows who might show up for this FREE show.

Tyondai Braxton @ The Kitchen
Originally performed at the Guggenheim in 2013, Braxton's Hive1 is "part architectural installation and part ensemble performance with five musicians sitting cross-legged atop their own space-age oval pods."

The Woggles, The Swingin' Neckbreakers, Muck and the Mires, Games @ Grand Victory
Georgia garage-rock revivalists The Woggles, who've been reviving garage rock for nearly 30 years, are known for their crazed stage show and stomping tunes. They still pack a punch. Opening this bill are Brooklyn's Games who make Nerves-style powerpop.

Ian Hunter and The Rant Band, A Thousand Mothers @ The Bell House
Seventy-six and still going strong, onetime Mott the Hoople frontman brings with him over forty years of songs.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

For laughs, check out the NYC Comedy calendar too.

Memorial Day Weekend is this weekend and, as usual, there's no lack of things for music fans to do. Maybe you're taking the opportunity to get out of town and head to a festival. Metalheads surely know it's that time of year again for Maryland Deathfest (Neurosis, Napalm Death, Yob, Triptykon, Inter Arma, DRI, Mobb Deep, more). Those who want to dance could head to Detroit for Movement (Squarepusher, !!!, Disclosure DJ set, Method Man, Hudson Mohawke, Dog Blood, Danny Brown, DJ Snoop Dogg, more). Punks may want to hit Bled Fest (Modern Life Is War, Touche Amore, The Early November, Small Brown Bike, Pianos Become the Teeth, more) or Punk Rock Bowling (Refused, Rancid playing And Out Come the Wolves, Discharge, Sick Of It All, Murder City Devils, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Muffs, more). And indie rock fans can head to Boston Calling (Beck, Pixies, My Morning Jacket, Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV on the Radio, Sharon Van Etten, more).

A couple good New York options that are just a few hours away from NYC are electronic festival Mysteryland, which happens at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (where the original Woodstock took place) and has Diplo, Skream, Matthew Dear, Classixx, Dillon Francis, Empire of the Sun, Giraffage, iLoveMakonnen, Moon Boots and more; and there's the first free concerts of the summer at Montauk's The Surf Lodge. They have Mac DeMarco on Friday (5/22), Escort on Saturday (5/23), and Capital Cities on Sunday (5/24).

But if you'd rather stay in NYC for the weekend, there's plenty to do here as well. We've made a list of ten shows we think are worth seeing. Browse that list, along with a few honorable mentions at the end, below...

GovBall

NYC music festival Governors Ball returns June 5-7, and today the schedule was revealed.

There's a few tough conflicts in there. On Friday, fans of both Drake and My Morning Jacket have a decision to make, as do fans of both The Decemberists and Florence + the Machine. And earlier that day, Twin Shadow is up against Charli XCX.

On Saturday, two big electronic producers go against each other, Flume and SBTRKT, and you'll have to decide between Bjork and Conor Oberst. Anyone into both Sharon Van Etten and Kiesza also has some deciding to do.

And on Sunday, The Black Keys are up against Lana Del Rey, and Hot Chip are up against Flying Lotus. Weird Al plays at the same time as The War On Drugs. We hope he writes and performs a Mark Kozelek parody for the occasion.

Check out the full schedule HERE.

UPDATE: Future and Black Pistol Fire have been added to the Governors Ball Friday lineup

Lucius

Brooklyn's Lucius brought their colorful co-fronted pop to Music Hall of Williamsburg on Monday for a free show with alt-pop outift Field Mouse. Pictures and live video from the show are in this post. The night served as a kickoff for Lucius' tour dates this summer, which include stints with both The Decemberists and My Morning Jacket. Luciusl next play NYC  on June 13 in Prospect Park with Luke Temple, which is a free show part of Celebrate Brooklyn's just-announced 2015 season.

Tallest Man

The Tallest Man on Earth already released "Sagres" from his upcoming album Dark Bird Is Home, one of his most fleshed-out tracks yet. Now he's put out the title track, which is far more stripped down. It's just Kristian Matsson and his acoustic guitar for most of the song, and it's even more somber than the last single (which was already pretty melancholic). Listen below.

Since we last spoke, fellow folk singer Hiss Golden Messenger was added as an opener to several dates on Tallest Man's tour (which will be full-band), including his NYC show.

The NYC show happens June 3 at Beacon Theatre. Tickets are still available (though Ticketmaster says "not many left"), and we're also giving away a pair.

They've now added more dates, including a NYC stop with The Maccabees just a few days before the NJ show at Coney Island's MCU Park on June 2.

Mini Mansions

Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman also fronts the band Mini Mansions, who put out their sophomore album, The Great Pretenders, last month on T Bone Burnett's Electromagnetic Recordings/Capitol Records (Burnett's first signing). The album features a few of Michael's famous friends, such as Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson. Alex sings a verse on "Vertigo," and he also stars in the video along with several topless women (so needless to say, NSFW), and Brian sings backup on "Any Emotions." You can watch the videos for both below.

Mini Mansions have upcoming dates supporting Tame Impala, My Morning Jacket and Royal Blood (separately), and play a few festivals including Desert Daze and Austin Psych Fest. They also have a few headlining shows, including one in NYC on June 8 at Rough Trade. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/10) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/8) at noon.

All dates are listed, with those videos, below...

My Morning Jacket are back with The Waterfall, their first album in four years, which will be released on May 4. The album was recorded at Panoramic House in Stinson Beach, CA, a hillside studio that overlooks the Pacific -- a location that proved inspirational, says frontman Jim James:

For me, every record has the spirit of where we made it. Stinson Beach was so psychedelic and focused. It was almost like we lived on our own little moon out there. It feels like you're up in the sky.
You can check out first single "Big Decisions" below.

Already scheduled for appearances at Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and other festivals, My Morning Jacket have now announced a full North American tour. Support along the way comes from Hiss Golden Messenger, Lizzo (who just opened for Sleater-Kinney), Lucius and others. All dates are listed below.

Mumfords

Mumford & Sons' traveling festival Gentlemen of the Road returns this year, with a stopover not far from NYC in Seaside Heights, NJ on June 5 & 6 with The Flaming Lips, Alabama Shakes, The Vaccines, The Maccabees, Dawes, the Very Best, Jenny Lewis, Little May, JEFF the Brotherhood, Blake Mills and more TBA. Tickets go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM. There's other stopovers in Iowa, Scotland, Washington, Colorado, and more TBA. All current lineups below.

The Mumfords have also announced that their third album, Wilder Mind, is due out May 4 via Glassnote. A new article about the album on Rolling Stone says, "Mumford & Sons have mostly removed their signature elements - banjo, acoustic strumming, stomping kick drum - and replaced them with U2-sized guitars, synths, spacey mellotrons and even some drum machines." The album was produced by Arctic Monkeys' go-to guy and Simian Mobile Disco member James Ford, and they also recorded part of it in The National's Aaron Dessner's studio in Ditmas Park (inspiring the song "Ditmas"). Artwork, tracklist, and teaser video below.

Mumford & Sons also have other non-GOTR festival dates, including Bonnaroo.
