Michael Kiwanuka at Webster Hall, 9/18/2012
British singer Michael Kiwanuka is having a pretty good year, having won the BBC "Sound of 2012" poll back in January and now is one of the frontrunners for the prestigious Mercury Prize. He's catching on in America too, playing a packed Webster Hall last night (9/18) with openers Foy Vance and Marcus Foster. He'll play NYC again on Friday (9/21) at Music Hall of Williamsburg and you can still get tickets.
If you have yet to check out his lauded debut album, you can do so via Spotify. More pictures from last night's show at Webster Hall are below.

As mentioned, Michael Kiwanuka will be going on a tour this September and October which kicks off in NYC with a show at Webster Hall on September 18. Tickets for that show are still available, but if you'd like to see Michael at a smaller venue, he also just added a show happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 21. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (9/7) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (9/5) at noon.
Since we last spoke, Foy Vance, who sang a song at the BV-presented Daniel Johnston tribute show during SXSW, has been added to the tour, and will open at both NYC shows. Marcus Foster (not Mark Foster) has been added as well.
A video and a list of updated dates are below.
Hinted at and posted in some form on SXSW's website recently, but now offically announced...
