rainy Saturday at Boston Calling Music Festival (via Kevin Begley)
The first-ever Boston Calling Music Festival went down over the weekend (5/25-26) at Boston's City Hall Plaza. It was headlined by The National (whose Aaron Dessner also curated it, and who just did lots of album celebrating in NYC), and also included sets by The National's tourmates Dirty Projectors, The Shins (who also played a NYC show this past weekend), The Walkmen (who play a free show during Northside), Youth Lagoon (who open The National's Barclays Center show), and more.
Despite the rain and cold temperatures we were faced with over the weekend, the inaugural festival still seemed to be a success and festival organizers have already announced that Boston Calling will return this fall on September 7 and 8. The fall lineup is being headlined by Vampire Weekend on the Saturday, along with sets by Local Natives, The Gaslight Anthem, Bat For Lashes, Deer Tick, Okkervil River, and more; and headlined by Passion Pit on the Sunday, along with sets from Kendrick Lamar, Major Lazer, Solange, Flosstradamus, Flume, and more. Full lineup below (via Pitchfork).
Early bird 2-day passes go on sale Friday (5/31) at 10 AM and single day tickets go on sale June 7.
Both Local Natives and Kendrick Lamar also play NYC festival Governors Ball in June, which is only one of Kendrick's upcoming festival appearances in the NYC-area. Vampire Weekend and Solange play a NYC show together, and Solange also plays a free show during Northside. Major Lazer and Flosstradamus will hit NYC for their Mad Decent Block Party. And The Gaslight Anthem play two NYC shows this summer too.

Passion Pit at MSG earlier this month (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

"If you aren't already at the Williamsbsurg Music Hall for the free Fool's Gold show, don't bother now. You will never get in. 500+ line up" - Brian Doc Holidae
A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs' label Fool's Gold turned five and they decided to celebrate, with the help of Converse Rubber Tracks, in a big but but small way on Saturday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg (a Brooklyn venue much smaller than ones A-Trak has charged people to see him in). The free, first-come, first served, during-CMJ show ended up going something this:
09:00 - Ryan HemsworthThose who got on line early experienced this...
10:00 - Nick Catchdubs
10:45 - Troy Ave (bringing out Chase N Cashe)
11:15 - World's Fair (bringing out Tanboyz + Flatbush Zombies)

Flosstradamus @ 285 Kent, 10/5/2012
Fools Gold is turning five years old and Converse Rubber Tracks is helping celebrate with a free show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday, October 20 which is the last night of CMJ. Performers include Ghostface Killah, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis, Nick Catchdubs, World's Fair, Troy Ave, and the ever-popular "special guests." Doors are at 9 PM, first come first served, no RSVP. If you'd like to party in style, however, we are giving away a pair of VIP passes to the show and details on how to enter are at the bottom of this post, along with a flyer for the show.
The next night (10/21), A-Trak and Flosstradamus will bring their "House Party Tour" to Asbury Park, NJ at an undisclosed residence. To receive info on the secret locations, sign up HERE. Meanwhile, Flosstradamus played a packed and sweaty show at 285 Kent this past Friday (10/5)and a few pictures from that show are in this post.
Speaking of Converse, the shoe folks are offering up a live version of Green Day's "Oh Love" from their new album ¡UNO! which you can stream below. There are also ¡UNO! Chuck Taylors (green of course)

It's been quite an interesting week for album marketing schemes. Death Grips posted their new album for free allegedly in defiance of their label, Godspeed You! Black Emperor announced their first album in ten years, which was already being sold at their shows and unsurprisingly leaked onto the internet almost immediately after the announcement. Now, here's a good one from Chicago production duo Flosstradamus. They dropped their new EP, X☮, yesterday (10/4) with this tweet: "X☮ EP DROPS NOW! follow us & tweet #FLOSSX and look for a DM from us soon w/ ur download code!" Well apparently that plan got them shut down on twitter, so they're now offering a free download of the EP with this direct link (password: "bannedboyz"). Their twitter is back up now, but it looks like they're still going with the direct download at this point. The EP cover art is below.
As mentioned, Floss will be taking over people's houses later this month with A-Trak and Donnis, but they're playing a few of their own shows before that, including one in NYC tonight (10/5) at 285 Kent with DJ Sliink, Mess Kid, Yamez, and aesthetics by A.Pop. Advance tickets are sold out, but the show promoter (Mean Red) tweeted, "maybe some at door? no guarantees." Doors are at midnight if you wanna give it a shot, and if you don't get in you can always slip next door and catch Girl Unit doing a late-night set at Glasslands with Dubbel Dutch and Nadus (tickets).
The EP cover art and a list of all dates are below...
A-Trak at DCTV in 2011 (more by Bryan Bruchman)
A-Trak is set to play the first ever LA installment of Fool's Gold Day Off, which traditionally happens in NYC on Labor Day (this year's featured Danny Brown, Just Blaze, Flosstradamus, and more). After that A-Trak is kicking off what he's calling the "House Party Tour." And he's calling it that because he's literally taking over people's houses for the shows on the tour. He'll be bringing Flosstradamus and Donnis along for the ride. To receive info on the secret locations, sign up HERE.
The tour is set to hit five US cities, culminating in Asbury Park, NJ on October 21. That's the closest they'll come to NYC, but they have nothing scheduled for the day before (10/20), which means they'll be headed towards the NYC area with no plans on the last day of CMJ. So it seems likely that something will be added that day.
A-Trak was last in NYC for Electric Zoo. You can listen to a stream of the first hour of his set at that festival, along with the Day Off LA flier, the House Party Tour flier, and a list of all dates on that tour, below.
Thom Yorke at The Wooly - 9/7/12 (via non_equivalents)
Thom Yorke came to NYC over the weekend and DJed a Fashion Week party for Rag & Bone (whose co-designer Marcus Wainwright is a friend of Thom's) at The Wooly on Friday (9/7). A picture of Thom during his set at the Belvedere Vodka-sponsored party is above. Aziz Ansari was in attendance too.
Thom also, as discussed many times, did an Atoms for Peace DJ set for the final installment of this summer's Warm Up at MoMA PS1 with AFP bandmate and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Atoms for Peace just announced that their new album will come out next year, and to open their set, Thom and Nigel performed three new tracks that will presumably end up on that album with Thom singing live. You can watch videos of two of those new songs, and listen to audio of the third below. After the short unexpected live performance, Thom returned to the boards for the remainder of the show and spun a variety of tunes (everything from Talking Heads to Azealia Banks).
Thom Yorke & Nigel @ MoMA PS1 - 9/8/12 (via rebeccataylorny)
The rest of the lineup at Warm Up was great too. Despite a crazy storm, the show went on, opening with a set by Justin Strauss. Then Maria Minerva, who also did a Fashion Week show, just released new album, Will Happiness Find Me (stream it), and who now lives in Brooklyn (after moving from Estonia to London), played a live set. You can catch her in NYC again at Glasslands on Friday (9/14) with Father Finger and Octo Octa (tickets).
Up next was Holy Other, finally making his NYC debut, after having to cancel shows last summer due to illness. The elusive producer, who in a recent interview with Stereogum said he was "going to feel naked" performing outdoors during the day, played material off his excellent recently released debut LP, Held, and 2011's With U EP as well. A video from his set is below. The MoMA PS1 show fell in the middle of his tour with Amon Tobin, which hits the NYC area on Thursday (9/13) at Wellmont Theatre (tickets) and Friday (9/14) at Hammerstein Ballroom (tickets).
Before Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich finally took the stage, we were graced with one more set, this time by Scottish producer Rustie, who played Webster Hall with Flosstradamus and Brenmar the night before (9/7). He dropped bass heavy tunes that got the crowd going pretty wild. A couple videos from his Webster Hall show are below (unfortunately, the sound cuts out about halfway through).
Check out all those videos below...
East River Park Summerstage in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Free Summerstage shows at East River Park are underway and will be going down throughout this week and next. As mentioned, tonight (8/19), UCB Comedy will be presenting The All-Stars of Improv with two acts of improvised comedy from various performers. Tonight's show starts at 7 PM just after the Jamaica 50th Independence Day celebration is wrapping up farther uptown at Central Park Summerstage.
Other shows at East River Park include the previously discussed Red Bull Music Academy co-presented show with Araabmuzik, Flosstradamus, Teengirl Fantasy, and Nick Hook on Monday (8/20), the previously discussed Lyricist Lounge 20th Anniversary show on Wednesday (8/22) with DJ Premier vs. Pete Rock, and the Two Boots 25th Anniversary show on Thursday (8/23) with Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars, Mamarazzi, Odetta Hartman, Himalayas, and The Whiskeyhickon Boys. That show will be hosted by Luis Guzman, will feature poetry from Nuyorican Poet's Café: Caroline Rothstein, Mahogany Browne, and Marshall "Soulful" Jones, and performance art from Lady Circus and the Magic Beans, Free Art Society, and 4Heads Art Collective, plus free pizza.
An updated East River Park schedule is below...
Danny Brown at Prospect Park, June 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Labor Day is quickly approaching and if you're not leaving the city and need sommething to cap off the summer, the folks at Fools Gold Records are once again throwing their Day Off NY party which happens Monday, September 3 at City Winery's backyard and features Danny Brown, French Montana, Flosstradamus, Flatbush Zombies, #BEEN #TRILL, Just Blaze, and more. The party goes from 2PM - 8PM and is free and all-ages. More details are here. Flyer for the party is below.
The Fool's Gold party happens about a week after Danny Brown and Just Blaze share a bill at Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on August 25 with Nick Catchdubs, The Stallions, and BAIO (of Vampire Weekend). Tickets for that show are still on sale.

Araabmuzik at Pitchfork Fest 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
Summerstage hooked up with Red Bull Music Academy to add a last minute (and really great) show to their 2012 schedule. On August 20 at East River Park they'll be presenting a free show with Araabmuzik, Flosstradamus, Teengirl Fantasy, and Nick Hook (of Cubic Zirconia). The show goes from 6 to 9 PM.
You may remember that Araabmuzik was supposed to play a Summerstage show back in June but cancelled. Hopefully everything goes as planned for this one. Araabmuzik just lent his production to Azealia Banks for her new song, "Succubi," which you can stream below.
For Teengirl Fantasy, the show is part of a tour they're on now and happens three days before the album release party for their new record, Tracer, aboard a Rocks Off Cruise (8/23) with Lemonade (tickets). Tracer drops next week (8/21), but NPR is streaming it in full a week ahead of its release. As mentioned, four of the ten tracks feature guest vocals (from Kelela, Panda Bear, Laurel Halo, and Romanthanony [the voice of Daft Punk's "One More Time"]) and those are balanced out by some pretty great instrumentals. The whole thing is really cohesive and has more of an album flow than their debut. Check it out for yourself.
All lists of updated dates and the new Azealia Banks song are below...

We've mentioned a few times that Scottish beatmaker Rustie, who released his great debut LP, Glass Swords, last year on Warp, will be in NYC to play Warm Up at MoMA PS1 on September 8 with Thom Yorke/Atoms for Peace (DJ set), Holy Other, Maria Minerva, and Justin Strauss (tickets). Now Rustie has revealed that the show is part of a short tour that Rustie will be on, which also includes a show at Webster Hall on September 7 for a Girls & Boys party with Flosstradamus and Brenmar. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All Rustie tour dates are listed below.
Rustie also recently teamed up with Aluna Francis, the vocalist of UK R&B duo AlunaGeorge (who put out the great You Know You Like It EP earlier this year) to give vocal treatment to the track "After Light" from his Glass Swords LP. The dubstep meets cool-R&B approach of the collaboration hits a similar spot that SBTRTK's vocal collabs do, and if Rustie continues in that direction he may end up as massive -- especially if there's enough demand for his Webster Hall show (you'll remember that his last NYC gig was at the much smaller Santos Party House). Rustie did a similar reworking of his album track "Surph" earlier this year, when Nightwave added vocals to the song.
Streams of the vocal-assisted versions of "After Light" and "Surph," and a list of all dates are below.
Bonde Do Role at Bowery Ballroom in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Back in June, we mentioned that the Mad Decent Block Parties were returning this summer and then earlier this month, they revealed a list of artists, but didn't say who was playing each city. Now venues have been revealed for all five parties and the lineups for NYC Philly, and Toronto have been announced as well. The FREE NYC party will happen on August 5 at WIlliamsburg Park (in previous years it was at the South Street Seaport) with Major Lazer, Erol Alkan, Bonde Do Role, Lunice, Riff Raff, Mr Muthafuckin' eXquire, Reptar, Zebra Katz, Bosco Delrey, Baauer, Kito, and Paul Devro. The parties are free and all ages but RSVP is required. All announced lineups are listed below.
Speaking of Lunice, his collaborative project with Hudson Mohawke, TNGHT (pronounced "tonight") released their self titled debut EP this week (7/24) via Warp/Lucky Me. If you've yet to hear it, you can stream the entire thing below.
As for Bonde Do Role, the block party will be their first NYC show quite a while. You may remember that their original singer, Marina Ribatski left the band in 2007 and was replaced by two other singers, Ana Bernardino and Laura Taylor, who joined the band by winning an audition done with MTV Brasil. Ana has since left the band too and they are now a 3-piece fronted only by Laura Taylor. The new incarnation of the band put out their first album in five years, Tropical/Bacanal, last month via Mad Decent. The album was co-produced by Diplo and Filip Nikolic of Poolside (who have two NYC shows this week). The album features guest appearances from Caetano Veloso, Das Racist, Cecile, Rizzle Kicks, and The Death Set (who also has a NYC show coming up). The video for album track "Kilo" and a stream of another track, "Bang," which features Kool AD of Das Racist, are below.
Updated Mad Decent Block Parties info, the flier for the NYC party, video and streams are below.
Action Bronson at Red Hook Park in June (more by Eric M. Townsend)
As mentioned, Mad Decent Block Parties are returning this summer, hitting Toronto, Philly, NYC, Chicago, and LA. When we last spoke, lineups had not yet been announced. They still haven't revealed specific lineups by city, but we've now got the full list of artists who will be playing Mad Decent Block Parties this summer and it includes Major Lazer, Action Bronson, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire, Spaceghostpurrp, Lunice, Jacques Greene, Casey Veggies, BADBADNOTGOOD, Baauer, Jim-E Stack, Bosco Delrey, Flosstradamus, Three Loco (aka Andy Milonakis, Dirt Nasty, and Riff Raff), and many more.
As mentioned, the parties are all ages and free, and RSVP is open.
The full lineup is listed below...
Bass Squad are hosting "On the Rocks,' a summer residency at Drom which kicks off with an opening party on Thursday (5/31) at the Manhattan venue. The party is being headlined by Flosstradamus and also features Baauer, Tony Quattro, Mess Kid, and a "secret guest." Tickets are still available. The flier for this show and a video trailer for the summer residency are below.
If you're going to the party on Thursday, it's worth showing up early to catch Brooklyn producer Baauer. HIs single, "Harlem Shake" b/w "Yaow," was released earlier this month as part of Mad Decent imprint Jeffree's free weekly singles. You may have heard "Harlem Shake" on Diplo & Friends' BBC Radio 1 show or on Rustie's Essential Mix. You can grab MP3s of both tracks above or stream them below.

Frankie Rose & band @ Hotel Vegan (by Amanda Hatfield)
"...it offered the perfect setting for seeing multiple bands within an intimate setting in a short amount of time. Sure it was a long walk down Sixth Street to get there, and it may not have been the most well kempt venue (I'll be honest, it was a shit-hole), but the three stage set-up provided for prime SXSW day party viewing. I had the pleasure of seeing Chelsea Wolfe, Japandroids, Frankie Rose, Deaf Heaven, and Japandroids all within the span of a couple hours. All of these bands were on my list of bands I wanted to see, and thanks to this venue, I was able to cross more bands off my list than past years"One of the stages on Wednesday was dedicated to Chicago bands courtesy of BV Chicago, and one was put together by BBG. It was on the latter that we hosted an afternoon set by Deafheaven who created NY Mag's Nitsuh Abebe's favorite moment of SXSW 2012.

At Dam-Funk's set I saw during SXSW 2010, the foggy synths and sun-baked cassette jams of his Toeachizown LP, which came out last year on Stones Throw, blasted on an ear-crushing level. He also played a keytar. Videos of that gig and another Austin show are below.
Coming up, he has scattered tour dates all over the world, including Sasquatch and Pitchfork music fests this summer, and an NYC show on a boat. Dam-Funk plays a Rocks Off Concert Cruise on Saturday, April 24th. Tickets are on sale.
All Dam-Funk tour dates and his cover of the Human League's "Things That Dreams Are Made Of" (and its accompanying trippy video) are below...
"The 2010 Lollapalooza line-up is official: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix will headline, joined by Social Distortion, MGMT, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Chip, and The Black Keys. With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...
It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.
Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza
