Anoraak at M for Montreal 2011 (more by Bill Pearis)
When we recently profiled Electric Youth, we mentioned that they were the duo who teamed up with French producer College (aka David Grellier) for the excellent track, "A Real Hero," on the Drive Soundtrack. It wasn't listed in Electric Youth's tour dates at the time, but we now know that they'll be joining College for a NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on July 20. The show also features Anoraak, who have also collaborated with College (they're both part of French Valerie collective). Hopefully we'll be hearing the collaborations from these artists at the Brooklyn show. It's billed as 'The Drive Tour,' but MHOW appears to be the only scheduled date. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

They'll also support Marina and the Diamonds at a few of their upcoming US shows including their NYC shows on August 16 and 18 at Webster Hall. The first of those shows is sold out but tickets for the 8/18 show go on sale Friday (5/18) at noon. MS MR are also on board to open for Xylos at Glasslands on June 1 with Ninifabi. Tickets for that show are available. All MS MR dates are listed below.
Speaking of tonight's VHS or Beta show, there's a Vibrations afterparty at Hudson Terrace Roof Deck (5/17) starting at 10 PM. In addition to a VHS or Beta DJ set, the party will also include Classixx, Sean Glass, and Electric Youth (DJ). Admission is free til midnight with RSVP.
Speaking of Electric Youth, you can also catch them play a live show at Brooklyn Bowl on Friday (5/18) with Italians Do It Better co-founder Mike Simonetti (who recently remixed Lemonade). Tickets for that show are available. Electric Youth were featured on the excellent Drive soundtrack teaming up with College for "A Real Hero." That soundtrack also includes two Johnny Jewel (the other Italians Do It Better co-founder) groups, Desire and Chromatics. Electric Youth dropped the "Right Back to You" single last year, and like Drive's aesthetics and soundtrack, it's soaked in '80s nostalgia. Though few modern songs scream '80s quite like this one does -- from the Like a Virgin-era Madonna drums, exercise video synths, and even a squealy guitar solo. Stream it below.
