Cold Cave @ Station to Station Arizona (more by Lucas Hodge)
The Red Bull Sound Select series of NYC shows continues this month with an East Village Radio curated show at Tammany Hall on November 20. Cold Cave will headline the show which will also features sets from local-ish acts Bad Girlfriend, Young Boys (who we've profiled), and Nothing (who played one of CMJ-week parties last month). Like all RBSS shows, this one is $3, but they're now requiring RSVP (or else it's $10). Keep your eye on RBSS's site for the RSVP link to appear. Check out the flyer below.
The next Red Bull Sound Select show anywhere, is in Austin Saturday as part of Fun Fun Fun Fest and Lee Fields is headlining that one. Jesse Ware does LA on 11/19 (Small Black recently did Dallas) (Debbie wasn't available).
Cold Cave, who've been trickling out songs over the last few months, last played NYC in September when they were at Glasslands. If you haven't heard Bad Girlfriend, the garagey quartet are currently working on their debut LP with Rewards' Aaron Pfenning at the controls and you can stream a few tracks below. Nothing will be touring with Weekend in January.
The last BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show was last month at MHOW with Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem, The Bouncing Souls, Aye Nako and Nude Becah. Our next one is in January. Stay tuned for more info on that.
East Village Radio is also the home of the Invisible Oranges radio show. Head to IO for this week's playlist and a link to the stream.

Jessie Ware at Central Park w/ Disclosure in August (more by Robert Altman)
British pop singer Jessie Ware is set to return to North America for a tour this fall, and though that tour was supposed to hit NYC on November 2 at Roseland Ballroom, it's been moved to the smaller Irving Plaza, and now happens on November 4. Tickets for the Irving show are on sale now, and all tickets purchased for Roseland will be honored. If you can't make the new date, refunds are available.
UPDATE: Jessie made other changes to her tour too, including adding a Brooklyn show happening on November 2 at Warsaw. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketweb for updates.
Mikky Ekko, who has collaborated with Active Child and Rihanna, was billed to open the Roseland show and is still on many other tour dates, but isn't currently listed for the Irving Plaza or Warsaw shows (neither is anyone else). Updated dates are listed below.
Updated Jessie Ware dates are listed, along with a video, below...

Chromatics / Chic / The National w/ Bob Weir @ Outside Lands 8/9/2013
Frontman Matt Berninger strolled into the spotlight in a three-piece suit, sipping what appeared to be a glass of Sauvignon Blanc from any one of the festival's Wine Lands vendors. The band then launched into one of the best sets of the day, breaking into "Fake Empire" within the first three songs and interspersing their typically melancholy lyrical matter with a fun, humorous stage presence (Berninger made sure to note that his daughter's pre-school teacher was in the crowd, putting himself in strong position for the "Best Dad on Stage" award this weekend). And to cap it all off, Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead popped up on stage, grabbing a guitar and singing along to the bands' last number.The 2013 Outside Lands Festival happened last weekend across seven stages at San Francisco's sprawling Golden Gate Park. The fest kicked off Friday (8/9) and included headliner Paul McCartney, plus sets from Chromatics, The National, Chic (subbing for an ailing D'Angelo), Jessie Ware, Rhye, The Men, Smith Westerns and more. Pictures from their sets are in this post.

Like at Lollapalooza and Firefly, and like we'll be doing again at Bumbershoot, BrooklynVegan was set up each day of Outside Lands in the Soundwave tent where our hosts Christen Thomas and Dave Hill DJ'd, told jokes and interviewed and hosted bands that were playing the fest.
Pics from Outside Lands Day 2 are HERE. More pictures from day one below...

Ghost BC w/ Chris Gethard / Jessie Ware / Frightened Rabbit
We were just over in Chicago for tons of Lollapalooza fun, including three full days spent at the festival, and some afterparties we threw too. As you may know, while we were at the festival, like we did at Firefly in Delaware and are doing again this weekend at Outside Lands in San Francisco, we hosted two hours easy day inside the Soundwave Tent, which included interviews and stripped down performances by Ghost BC, Frightened Rabbit, Jessie Ware, School of Rock All Stars, and Deap Vally on day 1; Local Natives, Smith Westerns, IO Echo,, Drowners and another set of School of Rock All Stars on day 2; and Bear Mountain and The Orwells on day 3. The BV-portions of the tent were hosted by Billy Jones and comedian Chris Gethard of The Chris Gethard Show.
We'll have the full audio from these sessions available at some point, but meanwhile I can tell you that we learned Ghost's guitarist was not very Ghostly at all and he speaks beautiful English (when we could hear it though his mask), Chris Gethard has two Morrissey tattoos, Jessie Ware likes to ride the subway, the kids from School of Rock do in fact rock, the frontwoman of IO Echo has stage fright and a thing for Enya, each member of Bear Mountain has a different symbol tattooed on them and our show was their first-ever try at going acoustic, the Smith Westerns like to party, and the ladies LOVE the Orwells. who were collecting phone numbers from girls in the audience throughout our entire interview with them. Though short, both Frightened Rabbit's and Local Natives' super intimate sets in our tent were huge treats for the crowd in attendance, some of whom were in the tent waiting on line to get their bodies painted.
Pictures of all three days of our activities are in this post. They continue below...

Cloud rap-turning-pop producer Ryan Hemsworth just announced that he'll be touring North America this year with Cyril Hahn, who is signed to the unstoppable PMR Records (Disclosure, Jessie Ware [who he's remixed], Dornik, etc). That tour hits NYC on October 5 at Dark Disco @ 88 Palace. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketfly for updates.
Hemsworth also recently dropped two new tracks. One is a remix of A$AP Rocky's "Thuggin' Noise," which he mashes up with Britney Spears' "Everytime," and the other is a new track with singer LIZ, "Day N' Nite," which sounds pretty consistent with his love of both glitch and pop like Britney Spears and The Backstreet Boys.
You can stream both of those tracks, along with Cyril Hahn's recent "Perfect Form" single, and the list of all tour dates, below...

Disclosure / Mobb Deep
Central Park Summerstage may have gotten its dance show of the summer last night when UK house/garage crossover duo Disclosure, abrasive trap duo TNGHT, and another house-y producer Julio Bashmore took over the stage for one funky night in the park.
Julio kicked things off bright and early at 6 PM, which isn't really the appropriate time at all for his music (and unfortunately his set at Warm Up this Saturday will likely face the same problem), but it was a nice primer for what was to come, and I hope to be catching him in a dark club sooner than later.
Though still in the light, TNGHT fared much better, and it really seemed like as many people came to see them as Disclosure. Lunice spent at least half of their set acting as a hypeman, and rapping along to some of the verses they dropped, which included Rick Ross, Danny Brown, and best of all, the excellent "Blood On The Leaves," which they helped produce for Kanye's Yeezus. Aside from playing the music of other rappers, the real treat came when TNGHT brought out legendary Queens rap duo Mobb Deep, who performed "Quiet Storm" and "Shook Ones."
Then finally, once the sky fully blackened, Disclosure came on stage. These guys have come really far since their first trip to NYC less than a year ago, and from the reactions of the sold-out crowd, you'd know it in a second. It was all arms in the air, constant dancing, and singing every word to the big hits ("White Noise," "You & Me") as well as the slightly odder ones ("When A Fire Starts to Burn," "F For You") and the older cuts too ("Boiling," "What's In Your Head"). Like we thought they would, they brought out Jessie Ware to sing "Confess to Me" and "Running," and Sam Smith for "Latch." Excellent show, and a very excellent light show too, I should add.

Kendrick Lamar / New Order / Jessie Ware
While they might not realize it, many of today's popular electro acts owe a debt to New Order, a seminal electronic dance band that formed from the ashes of Joy Division more than three decades ago. As the sun set over Osheaga, the British post-punk group delivered a lengthy set that spanned the better part of their career and included hits "Blue Monday," "Perfect Kiss," "True Faith" and "Bizarre Love Triangle," the '80s dance anthem that caused the sizable crowd to reach a fever pitch. "Nice to see you've got a bit of the English weather," frontman Bernard Sumner quipped as storm clouds gathered overhead. While founding bassist Peter Hook was absent from the proceedings (he chose to go his own way a few years ago and parted on less than amicable terms), new guys Tom Chapman and Phil Cunningham proved themselves up to the challenge of living up to the band's legacy. Before handing over the main field to Osheaga's closing headliners, they performed three seminal Joy Division tunes including the legendary "Love Will Tear Us Apart," leaving the stage on a blissfully dark high note. [Under the Radar]Montreal's 2013 Osheaga Festival wrapped up on Sunday (8/4). We already posted pictures of day 1 and pictures of day 2, and here's a set of pictures from day 3 in this post. On the festival's final day, we saw sets from Mumford & Sons, New Order, Kendrick Lamar, Charles Bradley, Jessie Ware, Frightened Rabbit, and more. That day also included sets (that we unfortunately missed) by Hot Chip, Big Boi, Father John Misty, Disclosure, Holy Ghost! and more.

New Order at Williamsburg Park last week (more by PSquared Photography)
Lollapalooza 2013 happens this weekend (August 2 - 4) in Chicago's Grant Park (and some of it will stream online). We'll be there watching bands on all the stages and hosting them in the Soundwave Tent every day from 1 PM - 3 PM (and from 12:40 on Saturday).
The Lolla line-up is pretty great this year, full of big names with a lot of choices (and the occasional tough decision to be made between competing stages). Here are thirteen bands (plus a few more) we don't want to miss....
Disclosure at MHOW in March (more by Jason Bergman)
As discussed, UK dance duo Disclosure are bringing their tour to NYC for a co-headlining show with TNGHT on August 6 at Central Park Summerstage. It's with Julio Bashmore, who plays Warm Up that weekend. It's also two days before Disclosure collaborator Sam Smith plays Mercury Lounge, and around the time Jessie Ware is in the area too. It's also totally sold out.
However, Disclosure have now announced that later that night they'll be the Summerstage show afterparty which happens at The Wall (251 West 30th Street) with Alex English and "Guests." Any guesses on who they might be? Tickets for the afterparty are on sale now.
In related news, Sam Smith recently released his own new song, "Safe With Me," which you can stream below.
In other related news, Jessie Ware collaborator Sampha (who, like Jessie, sang on SBTRKT's album), released his own EP, Dual, this week (7/29) via Young Turks. Watch a video of him performing its track, "Indecision," for Yours Truly, below.
SBTRKT also DJs Output on Thursday (8/1) (sold out).
All Disclosure dates are listed, along with that video and song stream, below...
Jessie Ware at Webster Hall in April (more by Robert Altman)
Jessie Ware's rise shows no signs of stopping. Her last trip to NYC brought her to Webster Hall, and she's now just announced another run of North American dates to go down this fall and bring her to her largest headlining NYC show yet, Roseland Ballroom on November 2. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but you can check Ticketmaster for updates.
Jessie also has some US dates in early August following her appearance at Chicago's Lollapalooza. Those dates include a Boston show on August 5, a Baltimore show on August 7, and nothing on August 6, the day her collaborators Disclosure play Central Park Summerstage with TNGHT and Julio Bashmore. We've already wondered if Sam Smith is going to appear with Disclosure at that show, and now it doesn't seem impossible that Jessie could too.
Disclosure also, like Jessie, play Lollapalooza. And if they were to join each other on stage there, it wouldn't be the first time they did that at a US festival this year.
All dates are listed, along with her video for the Julio Bashmore-produced "Imagine It Was Us," below...

When London singer Sam Smith isn't recording with Disclosure (he sang lead on "Latch" from their debut album, Settle) or singing with them on BBC Radio 1 when they covered Duke Dumont, he's making his own music too. His recent single, "Lay Me Down," is sultrier and more of a vocal exercise than "Latch," and that can be streamed below. He's also got two alternate mixes of the track done by house/garage veteran Todd Edwards (who contributed to the new Daft Punk album), and those can be streamed below too.
Sam's got a few upcoming dates, most of which are in the UK, but he will be coming over to the US for a few shows this summer including one in NYC on August 8 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/21) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (6/19) at noon. It's only two days after Disclosure's Central Park Summerstage show with TNGHT and Julio Bashmore. Hmmm.
Dornik - 'Something About You'
In related news, vocalist/instrumentalist Dornik is the newest addition to the PMR Records label, which is also home to Disclosure (who seem to dig his stuff) and Jessie Ware (whose touring band Dornik used to drum in). Dornik just released his first single for the label, "Something About You," and it's really an excellent track. It's got a similar forward-thinking production style to Disclosure and Jessie Ware, and vocally he's up there with today's best R&B singers (Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Miguel) but also reminiscent at times of pioneers like MJ or Prince. Check out that song below.

Bristol, UK house producer Julio Bashmore has released some singles and EPs over the past few years, like "Au Seve," the first release on his own Boardwalk label, and earlier this year he provided the dancefloor-ready beat to Jessie Ware's "Imagine It Was Us" single (and some of her Devotion LP). He also released a collaborative single with Kowton called "Mirror Song" this month via Boardwalk, which was backed by Kowton's new track, "And What?." You can check out the video for "Mirror Song" and a stream of "And What?" below.
Julio is set to come to North America for a tour here this August. That tour includes his opening slot at the previously discussed Disclosure/TNGHT co-headlining show at Central Park Summerstage on August 6 (tickets), and his appearance at the just-announced Warm Up summer series at MoMA PS1. Julio plays Warm Up on August 10 with Detroit techno vets Octave One (live), Hyetal, and DJ Dodger Stadium (aka Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy). Tickets for all Warm Up shows go on sale June 5 at noon.
Hyetal, who also hails from Bristol, makes UK-style dubstep under his own name, and is also part of the duo Velour with Julio Bashmore. Earlier this year, Velour released the dancey single "Speedway" b/w "Dial," which you can stream both tracks from below. Hyetal's new solo album, Modern Worship, comes out on June 4 via True Panther, and you can stream two tracks from that album below too. His appearance at Warm Up is his only currently announced North American date.
All Julio Bashmore dates are listed, along with the tour flyer and streams/videos, below...

The initial inaugural line-up has just been announced and it's pretty impressive: Nine Inch Nails AND How to destroy angels_, the newly-reformed Neutral Milk Hotel (their first show back, and an evening that includes opening sets from Daniel Johnston and Half Japanese), Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Animal Collective, Disclosure, Bosnian Rainbows, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Gary Numan, Chromatics, Rustie, Jessie Ware, Zola Jesus & JG Thirlwell, Tricky, Jacques Greene, and The Bug.

Ghost BC / The Three O'Clock / Thee Oh Sees fans
After two weekends, Coachella 2013 officially came to a close this past Sunday (4/21) with sets from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Wu-Tang Clan, Grimes, Vampire Weekend, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jessie Ware, Tame Impala, and more. Pictures of those artists, and some of the comparatively smaller but not less exciting artists that we missed at Weekend 1, like Ghost B.C., The Three O'Clock, DIIV, and Thee Oh Sees, are in this post.
We didn't catch James Blake this time like we did the first time, but he brought out RZA (who was there with Wu-Tang Clan) to perform their song, "Take A Fall For Me," which appears on James' new album, Overgrown. You can watch a video of that below.

Disclosure w/ Jessie Ware at Coachella 2013 (via John Fransella)
We recently mentioned that Baauer dropped his remix of a currently unreleased Disclosure and Jessie Ware track during his set at Coachella 2013, and in related but even more exciting news, later on when Disclosure played, they brought out Jessie Ware to sing lead on their remix of her song, "Running." It's as awesome as you'd expect it to be. Check out a video of the on-stage collaboration, along with videos of "White Noise," "Boiling," "Tenderly," and a new song from their Coachella set, below.
Baauer at Coachella 2013 (via Justin Henderson)
"You wanna hear some brand new shit? I don't think I'm supposed to play this," Baauer said at his Coachella 2013 set yesterday (4/13) before dropping his remix of Disclosure and Jessie Ware's currently-unreleased track, "Please Don't Let Go," which Disclosure have been playing live. Listen to a rip of that track from Baauer's set below. And just for fun, it's followed by a video of him dropping "Harlem Shake." For more fun, check out this fake Baauer Coachella setlist.

Jessie Ware @ Webster Hall, 4/5/2013
Jessie Ware, who is about to give a North American release to her 2012 debut, Devotion (due 4/16 via Interscope), kicked off her short North American tour in NYC last week with shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg (4/3) and Webster Hall (4/5) with MS MR. At the Webster Hall show, Jessie played most of Devotion, the two tracks from her If You're Never Gonna Move EP that didn't re-appear on the album, her 2011 single with Sampha, "Valentine," which appears on the re-release of Devotion, and her new single, "Imagine It Was Us," which also appears on that release.
More pictures and the setlist from the Webster Hall show, and the new video for "Imagine It Was Us," below...
A$AP Rocky at Public Assembly (more by Dylan Johnson)
As mentioned, A$AP Rocky, whose new album, Long. Live, A$AP, has been holding up pretty well this year, is on tour with Rihanna now and that tour will come to the NYC-area for shows at Prudential Center on April 28 and Barclays Center on May 4 and 5. But if you'd like to see Rocky do a headlining set a much smaller venue, you're in luck because he announced that he'll be at Highline Ballroom on April 28 with DJ Sinatra and "special guests" as an after show for the Prudential Center show. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Recently, A$AP Rocky made a video for his track, "Wild for the Night," which was produced by Skrillex (and he's featured in the video) and did a remix Jessie Ware's "Wildest Moments," which will appear on the North American release of her album, Devotion (due out 4/16 via Interscope). Updated dates are listed, along with that video and song stream, below...

Chicago producer Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca), who opened for Jessie Ware at Chicago's Lincoln Hall this past weekend, is gearing up for the release of his debut album, Mowgli, which is due to hit stores on February 26 via Lefse Records.

All three singles are available to stream at the bottom of this post.
