Wavves at Bonnaroo 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Earlier today, we mentioned that a bunch of punkish bands were added to Jay Z's Made In America festival, which goes down at Philly's Benjamin Franklin Parkway (8/31-9/1) this weekend. Since posting, one more band that fits that description has been added: Wavves. They play the Liberty Stage at 2:30 PM on Sunday. Full schedule here and tickets here.
Meanwhile, Nathan Williams and Stephen Pope of Wavves were also revealed (in an interview with Rolling Stone) as two of the radio hosts on the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game that Rockstar Games is putting out on September 17. You can watch the trailer for GTA5 that came out today that features a song by Chain Gang of 1974 (Remember them? They're still a band.) below.
The game also includes a station hosted by Flying Lotus which will play much of his own music, along with tracks from Tyler the Creator, Outkast, Aphex Twin, Machinedrum, DJ Rashad, Thundercat, Clams Casino, Dabrye, Kingdom and Shadow Child.
Other hosts include Pam Grier, Bootsy Collins, Kenny Loggins and dancing outlaw Jesco White (!). And additionally, the game's score is being done by Tangerine Dream, The Alchemist, Oh No, and Woody Jackson (Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire).
Updated Wavves dates are listed, along with a video, below...

Two hip hop producers, House Shoes and Dabrye, are teaming up for some shows together this month. They've got two shows in California this week, and then they'll come to NYC for a Bandshell-presented show on February 28 at Le Poisson Rouge with Lamin Fofana. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now. At the moment, those are the only three shows announced for the two producers, and you can see them all in list format below.
House Shoes has been a mainstay as a producer in the Detroit hip hop scene for years, but it wasn't until 2012 that he released his "official" debut album, Let It Go, which features guest spots from Danny Brown, Roc Marciano, The Alchemist, Oh No, Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Chali 2na and more. Like collaborator The Alchemist's 2012 album, Russian Roulette, Let It Go is a great showcase of the current indie rap scene, but it also works as its own cohesive album of retro-futuristic boom bap. You can stream the entire album and watch the video for the song with Danny Brown, "Sweet," below.
Dabrye hasn't released anything too recently, but like House Shoes, his albums feature a variety of great indie rappers (his 2006 release, Two/Three featured DOOM, Vast Aire, Beans, Guilty Simpson, and others), and his material has been taken on by some pretty great remixers like Kode9 and Flying Lotus. A stream of the instrumental version of his Two/Three LP is below.

Bonobo (aka Simon Green) released Black Sands Remixed, a remix album of his 2010 LP, yesterday (2/13) in Europe via Ninja Tune, and will release it next Tuesday (2/21) in North America. The album features remixes by Machinedrum, FaltyDL, Mike Slott, Mark Pritchard, and others. Check out the video for Machinedrum's remix of "Eyesdown" below, along with the album art and tracklist.
Bonobo is about to kick off a run of DJ dates in the US (none in NYC), followed by live dates in Australia this March, before returning to the US at the end of that month to present "A Night of Black: 'Black Sands Remixed' Album Launch" at Le Poisson Rouge on March 29, where Bonobo will DJ along with appearances by album remixers Machinedrum, FaltyDL, and Mike Slott. Tickets are on sale now.
You can also catch FaltyDL, who has a DC show coming up with Four Tet, in NYC TONIGHT (2/15) at Cameo when he DJs along with Loefah, DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, Dave Q, and J-Kush. The flier for this show is below.
FaltyDl's soundcloud page also lists that he opens for Matthew Dear at Bowery Ballroom (3/2) with Blondes (live) and Helado Negro, but that is NOT TRUE. Regardless, tickets for that show are still available.
