Oneohtrix Point Never w/ A Far Cry at World Financial Center - 7/14/12
Oneohtrix Point Never (aka Daniel Lopatin), who also played Pitchfork fest over the weekend, and Bang on a Can composer David Lang played the second installment of the Ecstatic Summer concert series at the World Financial Center on Saturday (7/14).
"The composers were Daniel Lopatin, who produces electronic works under the name Oneohtrix Point Never; William Brittelle, whose works are vibrant amalgams of jazz, rock and postmodern chamber music; and David Lang, part of the Bang on a Can triumvirate, whose music ranges widely but most often combines strains of Minimalism and Neo-Romanticism.In the way that these 'Ecstatic' events go, Oneohtrix Point Never played a partial set of solo material and was then joined by string ensemble A Far Cry Orchestra to perform newly arranged renditions of his work with arrangements by Brittelle.
Mr. Lang, the oldest and most firmly established of the three (he won a Pulitzer Prize in 2008), had top billing, but in a way this was Mr. Lopatin's show." [NY Times]
Ecstatic Summer continues and ends at the World Financial Center on August 25 with Escort and Darcy James Argue's Secret Society. The first show in the seires featured Tune-Yards.
Oneohtrix Point Never's next scheduled NYC show is the 'Yo Eskerikk Asko NYC!' festival, which goes down at Public Assembly from August 24 - 25 with Glenn Brenca, Tim Hecker, Colin L. Orchestra, White Suns, and more.

This Will Destroy You @ Merkin Concert Hall
This Will Destroy You are really mixing it up on this tour. Last night they played the fancy Merkin Concert Hall on 67th Street as part of the ongoing Ecstatic Music Festival, and on Saturday (2/11) they'll play a just-announced show at DIY space 285 Kent in Brooklyn with Wires Under Tension. Tickets are on sale for the show which happens the same day they play Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken with their tour-mate Amen Dunes (who they also played Lincoln Hall in Chicago with).

Last night (2/9)'s show was split into three acts:

This Will Destroy You will team with Amen Dunes (who played 285 Kent last night) for a set of dates in late January and into February. The trek, which charts a path most through the Midwest, East Coast, and into the South, will include a stop in NYC at the Kaufman Center at NYU on 2/9 with A Far Cry and Slow Six. The show is part of the previously discussed Ecstatic Music Festival and tickets are still on sale for the invidiual show or the entire festival.
This Will Destroy You recently released the "Black Dunes" single, which features the album track and a remix. Stream that, as well as their recent LP Tunnel Blanket below. The band also recently scored The Deep Field.
