"Saw We Were Promised Jetpacks tonight at Rockefeller Center for Fashions Night Out! They were amazing!" - Amy DiReda
We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center - 9/6/12
We Were Promised Jetpacks brought their tour to NYC for a free outdoor Fashion's NIght Out (9/6) show at Rockefeller Center with The Lonely Forest. Ken Grand-Pierre wrote on his tumblr, "We Were Promised Jetpacks proved that you could be just as rowdy in a fancy plaza as you could be in a basement esque venue dripping with sweat. It was brilliant seeing the Fashion Night Out crowd go from confused to just going with it, and seeing their fans jumping up and down during the Jetpacks set was awesome."
WWPJ continue their tour at Amityville's Ollie's Point tonight (9/10) and come to Brooklyn on Tuesday (9/11) at The Bell House. Advance tickets for the Bell House show are still available.
More pictures from the FNO show are below.

As mentioned, Ladyhawke is one of the many musicians who will be in NYC tonight (9/6) for Fashion's NIght Out. She'll DJ Allsaints Soho from 6-9 PM (512 Broadway) with Mick Rock. Tonight's show falls right before her tour in support of her new album, Anxiety. That tour kicks off in NYC on Saturday (9/8) at Bowery Ballroom (tickets) and immediately afterwards she'll play a second show that same night in NYC for a Fashion Week party hosted by INGA and Bullet Magazine at the Tribeca Grand Hotel. That party runs from 10 PM to 4 AM and is free with RSVP. The flier for this show is below.
In celebration of the Tribeca Grand show, Ladyhawke released a Jump Up remix of her song "Black White And Blue Punks." She was also recently remixed by Jacques Renault for her song "Blue Eyes." You can download both songs above, or stream them, along with the show flier and a list of all tour dates, below.
Tonight (9/6), the stylish and the lovers of free booze and music will be out in force on the streets of Soho, the Meatpacking District and other parts of NYC for Fashion's Night Out.
We posted a giant list of FNO music happenings yesterday and turns out there's way more including: Yoko Ono reveals her new collection at Swarovski Crystallized;
A$AP Rocky at Adidas Originals SoHo Store (see below); St. Vincent performing at at a speakeasy themed (and Boardwalk Empire-sponsored) party at Rag & Bone; Sonlange Knowles and Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear at The Ace Hotel; Theophilus London will be at The Rose Bar; Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. performs at Bloomingdale's Soho; Wild Belle at Mulberry (update: this is a DJ set); Frankie Rose and Alex Winston at Theory and more.
Basic info on these additional FNO performances/parties is below. Our previous post is here. All events are free and open-to-the-public unless otherwise noted. You can check the FNO website for more info. Some flyers below too.

Azealia Banks / Hunters at Wythe Hotel 9/5/2012
At yay high, Azealia Banks is a tiny little thing, about 50% weave and 50% moxie. I didn't really have much expectation for her live show, especially given the setting -- a blingy Fashion Week party thrown by SPIN and fashion website Refinery29 -- but she definitely brought it last night (9/5) Flanked by two black-clad dancers (evoking early '90s club music more than anything hip-hop), Banks worked the floor and oozed charisma for her short but energized set. The crowd even stopped snapping pics on their phones (and in a couple cases, iPads) to dance to "212" which explosively closed her set. I don't know what it's like seeing her in a real venue (I personally missed her Bowery Ballroom performance, one of the very few live shows she's played to date), but in an intimate setting like the hype is understandable.
Azealia is on the cover of the new issue of SPIN which is rumored to be its last print edition. "Thanks to SPIN," Banks said in between songs. "I believe this is your last visible cover and I'm glad to be on it." From Madonna in 1985 to Azealia Banks in 2012. She's performing again tonight (9/6), a free and open-to-the-public show at M.A.C. Soho (506 Broadway) as part of Fashion's Night Out. She's on at 7:30 (but get there early).
Banks wasn't the only performer at this Virgin Mobile-sponsored party, held at swanky boho Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg. Danceable punks Hunters put on another great set, despite most party attendees elbowing their way to the bar unaware a band was playing. As at our 480 Pixels party, platinum-pink-haired singer Isabel Almeida commanded attention, be it belting it out or writhing on the floor tangled in her mic cord.
In related news, Azealia Banks recently confirmed that she worked on a song with Lady Gaga, but is still not sure if it will end up on Gaga's upcoming album, ARTPOP (due out in 2013), which is "not just an album", but also an iPad/iPhone/mobile app (looks like someone's been listening to Bjork). That announcement comes only two weeks after Gaga confirmed she'd be recording a song with her friend Kendrick Lamar for his new album, good kid, m.A.A.d. city, which has been pushed back from its original release date of October 2 to October 22.
Meanwhile, Lady Gaga also has a huge international tour in the works in support of ARTPOP. She's on tour in Europe with The Darkness as we speak, and she'll return to our shores in 2013. While she's here, she'll hit NYC on February 22 at Madison Square Garden and March 6 at Barclays Center (which opens this month with eight shows by venue director Jay-Z). Tickets for those shows are not on sale yet, but check ticketmaster for updates.
All Lady Gaga tour dates and more pictures from the Azealia Banks and Hunters show are below.
UPDATE: We found even MORE
As mentioned, Thursday (9/5) is Fashion's Night Out. Basically another excuse to throw a party (in the name of bringing money and attention to fashion), the evening has become music-oriented in the last few years with bands playing stores all over New York City. There's a lot of stuff going on, including the Azealia Banks / DJ Cosmo performance at M.A.C. Soho we already told you about; plus Icona Pop and Maria Minerva at Urban Outfitters; Matchbox Twenty (!?!) at Bloomingdales; Haim at Topshop; La Sera at Helmut Lang; We Were Promised Jetpacks at Rockefeller Center; and Cyndi Lauper at Manolo Blahnik, just to name a few.
Below is a list of all the shows we could find with basic details and links where applicable/helpful. All shows are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted. Many have free food and booze as well. For more into visit the Fashion's Night Out website. Let us know what we missed, in the comments.
Tonight (9/5), Azealia Banks and Hunters are performing at an "invite-only", "entrance subject to capacity" party at the very-hot Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg which is being thrown by SPIN and fashion website Refinery29. The Virgin Mobile-sponsored show serves dual purposes, as Azealia is on the cover of the new print issue of SPIN and it's also a kickoff to Fashion Week here in NYC which, if you live here, you have probably already been hit over the head by media coverage (to which we're adding more). SPIN is going gaga for Fashion Week this year with a dedicated site that will offer video coverage with MNDR as one of their corespondents. The flyer for tonight's show is below.
Azealia will also be performing at a show you have a better shot of getting into, as part of Fashion's Night Out which happens Thursday (9/6) all over the city. (This, as you all know, is the only night of the year Fashion is allowed out in public in NYC.) Azealia and DJ Cosmo will perform at M.A.C. Soho (506 Broadway) at 7:45 PM though you'd do well to show up earlier than that if you want to get in.
There are dozens of FNO shows Thursday night and we'll have more on those very soon. Meanwhile, you can watch (or rewatch) Azealia's new video, "1991," below along with the flyer for tonight's soiree...
We Were Promised Jetpacks at BV-CMJ 2011 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)

two three in the NYC area: Ollie's Point on September 10 in Amityville and The Bell House on September 11 in Brooklyn. Tickets for the Amityville show are on sale now and tickets for the Brooklyn show go on sale today (8/3) at noon.

A list of all dates and a video are below.

Chairlift @ All Points West 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)

Beth Ditto @ Coachella 2010 (more by Rachel Carr)
It feels like we haven't heard about the Gossip in a little while. Their tour page shows they'll be playing some shows in Australia before the end of the year, but NYC will have the opportunity to experience the one and only Beth Ditto much sooner. Like James Murphy and and Bethany Cosentino, Beth is appearing in NYC this Thursday (9/8) in honor of Fashion's Night Out. Beth's TWO SONG SET will happen at Mac Cosmetics, and online. According to their Facebook...
"Get ready for the wildest night of the year... this Thursday is Fashion's Night Out! Gossip glamour girl Beth Ditto will be performing an exclusive two-song set at M·A·C Soho to celebrate Fashion's Night Out. Not in NYC? No problem! You can watch the event live on our Facebook page, beginning Thursday 9/8 at 8pm. See you there!Beth's two songs happen at 8pm at 8 PM at M·A·C Cosmetics SoHo, 109 Spring St. @ Mercer Street. Hardly worth going over for, but if it's not too hard to get into (wishful thinking), you could easily hop around to/from James and Best Coast which are both on Mercer too.
White Rabbits @ Escape to NY Fest (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Whoever books the now-annual Fashion's Night Out show at Rockefeller Center must really like Bear Hands. Like last year, Bear Hands will play the free 6-11pm gig on Thursday (9/8). This year they'll be opening for White Rabbits and share a bill with Lissy Trullie and DJ Keiichiro. Flyer below.
