JT on 'Fallon' last night
Maybe no surprise but tickets sold out quick this morning to Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z July 19 Yankee Stadium date on their "Legends of Summer Tour." (You might be able to still grab a single ticket, but we couldn't pull up two or more.) It may also not surprise you to learn that they've added a second Yankee Stadium show the next day (7/20). Tickets to that show go on sale Monday, March 18 at 10 AM. Updated dates are below.
In other news, Timberlake is on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon all week and last night performed "Pusher Love" from his upcoming The 20/20 Experience (which you can stream on iTunes). Video of that is below.
Prince on 'Jimmy Fallon'
The Purple One (aka Prince) blessed NYC and the world at large with a performance on Friday (3/1) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing the previously discussed new track "Screwdriver" as well as his 1979 track "Bambi". Check out video of both below. Both songs are available for purchase via Prince directly.
As mentioned, Prince will be paid tribute by names like The Roots, Elvis Costello and more over two sold-out nights in NYC, one officially at Carnegie Hall on March 7 and one "rehearsal" at City Winery on March 6th.
D'Angelo, who will perform the Carnegie Hall tribute, also plays Brooklyn Bowl tonight with Questlove (3/4, sold out).
Will Prince make an appearance at any of these shows? Prince.org at least confirms Prince will be in attendance at Carnegie.
Head below for video of Prince Rogers Nelson ripping through two tracks.
UMO/Foxygen at Austin's Mohawk (more by Tim Griffin)
Jagjaguwar labelmates Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Foxygen are about two weeks into their tour together that will swing into NYC on Thursday (2/28) for a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom with fellow tourmates Wampire. All three bands hit Texas' state capital last week and BV Austin's Tim Griffin was there and got some great shots (as you can see above) and you can check out more of his pics HERE.
Foxygen will play NYC again at Knitting Factory on May 14 and Mercury Lounge on May 15. Both shows are sold out.
Yesterday (2/25) was an off night for the tour and Unknown Mortal Orchestra took advantage of that by making their television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing "So Good At Being In Trouble." You can watch that clip below.
As mentioned, Justin Timberlake is releasing The 20/20 Experience, his first album since 2006's FutureSex/LoveSounds, on March 19 via RCA. You've already seen the music video and some live performances of the first single, "Suit & Tie," which features Jay-Z, and heard the second single, "Mirrors." But if you need a refresher, both of those songs and the album's tracklist are below. That's the cover art above.
JT also just announced that he'll be supporting the album with a tour with Jay-Z, who in addition to guesting on "Suit & Tie," has performed it with him at all of JT's one-offs this year. That tour is a huge stadium tour dubbed the "Legends of the Summer" tour and it hits NYC on July 19 at Yankee Stadium. All dates are listed below. All shows go on sale February 28, except the Yankee Stadium date, for which ticket info has not been announced yet. More specific info on tickets and presales is HERE.
Justin will be in NYC sooner than that though, to host and be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on March 9 and appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from March 11 to 15. Maybe we'll get another one of those random one-offs to warm up for Yankee Stadium while he's here?
A list of all dates, song stream, video, and album tracklist below...

Local Natives @ Bowery Ballroom, 2/3/2013
Local Natives completed up their three-night, sold-out NYC run on Sunday (2/3) at Bowery Ballroom, their second straight night at the venue. (Friday they played MHOW.) Both Bowery shows featured an opening set from We Barbarians, and pictures from Sunday's show, plus Local Natives' setlist, are in this post.
If you missed Local Natives' three NYC shows, you can still stream Friday's MHOW show at Bowery Presents' YouTube page. Additionally, the band will perform "Heavy Feet" live tonight (2/5) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, so set your DVRs. Their next local show is Governors Ball in June.
More pictures from Sunday's Bowery show below...
As also mentioned, Jim is stopping by the McKittrick Hotel on 2/20 to play a set in conjunction with the popular show "Sleep No More". Though originally listed as sold out, $162.50 tickets are on sale now. If you just want to see "Sleep No More" though, tickets are actually much cheaper normally.
Bob Mould just debuted his new video for "Star Machine," which is from last year's loud and highly-enjoyable LP, The Silver Age. The video was filmed at Cake Shop and was directed by Jon Glaser who you may know from Delocated or, most recently, HBO's Girls (he was Laird, the junkie). What starts as a fun "bring your kids to work" day turns sour when drummer Jon Wurster brings marrital problems instead. Watch it below.
Bob and the band will be in NYC next month when his tour hits Bowery Ballroom on February 26 and 27 and tickets are still available. The band will stick around to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on February 28 to perform "Star Machine." Bob also just announced a few new tour dates and those are listed below.

Jessie Ware @ Highline Ballroom, 1/16/2012
Jessie Ware is currently touring the US. She stopped in NYC last night (1/16) for her first of two shows here, the MTV '2013 Artists to Watch' show at Highline Ballroom with Zedd, Twenty One Pilots, and Glassnote-signed Robert DeLong. Accompanied only by an acoustic guitarist, Jessie only played four songs much to the disappointment of those there just to see her, though it seemed like most the crowd was there for Twenty One Pilots and Zedd. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Before her Highline show, Jessie taped an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, performing "Wildest Moments" with The Roots which aired last night. Those watching the serious performance would never know how silly Jessie can be when left with time for stage banter. Video of that is also below.
More pictures from last night plus the Fallon video below...

The 12/12/12 Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at Madison Square Garden went down last night and aired on multiple TV channels, websites, and in theaters worldwide. The concert featured performances by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Roger Waters (joined by Eddie Vedder), Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Chris Martin (joined by Michael Stipe), and Paul McCartney (joined by members of Nirvana). And in between there were speeches/appearances by Billy Crystal, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, P. Diddy, Chris Rock, and many more, spliced with footage of the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. (The less said about Adam Sandler's "funny" version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" with Paul Shaffer the better.) As was to be expected, the sets were short (though some longer than others) but it still ran late, ending after 1 AM. If you missed any of it, videos of some of the highlights are in this post.
Bruce Springsteen opened the show, getting everyone into the spirit of the night right away. Of all the sets, his choice of songs felt the most catered to the event ("Land of Hope and Dreams," "Wrecking Ball, "My City of Ruins," and of course also "Born to Run") and halfway in he prefaced "My City of Ruins" with a touching, personal speech about the damage done to the NY/NJ area, similar to the one he gave in Rochester in October.
Other highlights from throughout the show: Roger Waters ended his set by bringing out Eddie Vedder to sing lead on "Comfortably Numb." The Rolling Stones only got to play two songs ("You Got Me Rocking" and "Jumpin' Jack Flash") but still looked like they were having a great time. The Who, meanwhile, played seven songs. Then Kanye delivered a set which sent much of the twitterverse into an angry fit, though you have to wonder if this would have happened at a non-classic rock show (probably not). And of course, it was a pretty great surprise when Chris Martin brought out R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe to do "Losing My Religion."
But the most anticipated part of the night was that Nirvana reunion with Paul McCartney on vocals that everyone was talking about. Paul ended up bringing Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear out during his set to perform a new song they wrote, titled "Cut Me Some Slack," and then they left the stage and Paul returned to his own material. It would've been interesting to see those guys jam with Paul during "Helter Skelter" (which he opened with) or something, but at least Paul didn't sing "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Videos and setlist from last night are below...
The Stones setup @ Barclays Center (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
The Rolling Stones are playing Barclays Center in Brooklyn tonight (did you get a ticket?), and as wished/hoped/rumored, they were in fact added to the much-scalped Hurricane Sandy Benefit happening at Madison Square Garden on 12/12, a show that will be very "widely distributed"...
The producers of "12-12-12" announced today that the concert at Madison Square Garden on December 12, 2012, at 7:30 PM (ET) to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy, will have unprecedented and historic global distribution, similar to that of the Superbowl, the Academy Awards®, and the Grammys®.The Stones join the all-star line-up that already included Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Roger Waters, Eddie Vedder, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney.
Nearly 2 billion people worldwide will be able to access "12-12-12" on television, radio and the internet. The concert, presented by Chase, will be available to all 114 million television households in the US and to more than 400 million television households outside the country via networks and feeds in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Further elevating this event to its historic levels of distribution is live streaming on the largest online video services in the world, including YouTube, AOL, Yahoo, Hulu, and others. Combined, these video streaming services reach over 1.4 billion monthly unique users worldwide.
In addition, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, with its 239 million monthly listeners and more than 48 million monthly digital uniques, will broadcast the concert live on its radio stations across the country, and will also video stream live on iHeartRadio, Clear Channel's digital radio service, and across the websites and Facebook pages of its 850 stations.
AND: "A new list of celebrity presenters was also released today, including Steve Buscemi, Jessica Chastain, Chelsea Clinton, Sean Combs, Billy Crystal, Leo DiCaprio, Jimmy Fallon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Karlie Kloss, Seth Meyers, Bobby Moynihan, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Susan Sarandon, Jon Stewart, Kristen Stewart, Quentin Tarantino, and Brian Williams."

We recently pointed out that Big Boi will be in NYC to play a semi-private show at SOB's. We more recently updated that post with news of a TV appearance:
Big Boi will stop by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday (12/7) to perform "Mama Told Me" with Little Dragon, who were initially supposed to guest on the song's recording, but were replaced on the album by Kelly Rowland.Now we find out, via mfc (and the flyer above), that Big Boi will be playing the Studio at Webster Hall Saturday (12/8). Tickets will be available at 8pm TODAY (12/5).
Music/comedy group The Gregory Brothers, who are known for the viral Auto-Tune the News videos (Bed Intruder anyone?), told us their ten favorite viral YouTube videos of 2012. You can check out each video on their list with commentary, and some of their recent hits, at the bottom of this post. Let us know what you think they missed, in the comments.
The Gregory Brothers will play their seventh annual Christmas show in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on December 12 with Dusty Brown, Melanie Penn, and Sarah and the Stanleys. Tickets for the show are on sale now and all proceeds go to Sandy Recovery. They're promising "Christmas Cheer, Christmas Beer, Hot Toddies, Hot Bodies and music too!"
Sarah and the Stanleys is Sarah Gregory's band and Andrew Rose Gregory also has a number of solo albums out, having most recently released a covers EP over the summer, which featured covers of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released," Simon & Garfunkel's "Only Living Boy in New York, Lana Del Rey's "Video Games," and more. You can stream the entire release below or purchase it for $5 on bandcamp.

As mentioned, Big Boi releases his second solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, next week (12/11) via Def Jam. His solo debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, is still my single favorite hip hop album of the new decade so naturally I've been seriously anticipating VLADR since Big Boi mentioned he began work on it. And admittedly, the album is a bit overshadowed by its predecessor, due in part to lacking a song as huge as "Shutterbug." But though the album never hits a moment as large as that one, it's still a winner in its own right.
Vicious Lies opens up like a classic OutKast album, with a short, slow and pretty intro track that leads right into a blunted headknocker, "The Thickets," which appropriately features Sleepy Brown of Organized Noize, who worked on a lot of early OutKast. The bar continues to raise on the next track, a rhythmic club track up there with "Tangerine" or the Big Boi-featuring Janelle Monae track from that same year, "Tightrope." The album plateaus a bit there but more standouts start appearing later on with tracks like "Thom Pettie," a dirty synth track with a great hook from Little Dragon and a characteristically abrasive verse from Killer Mike. Later on we get "Lines," which is probably the best track on the album thanks to a killer chorus from Phantogram that doesn't leave your head once its in there (A$AP Rocky is on the track too). But the most interesting moment of the album has to be "Shoes For Running," which is carried by a hook sung by Wavves dude Nathan Williams. The only thing stopping it from being a total head scratcher is that Nathan toured with GZA and Killer Mike (which itself was a head scratcher) and I still can't decide if it's one of those fun indie/rap collabs like Kid Cudi and MGMT's "Pursuit of Happiness that you'll be hearing all year, or just plain weird. But the fact that I'm still going on about it must say something.
Before that, Big Boi will stop by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday (12/7) to perform "Mama Told Me" with Little Dragon, who were initially supposed to guest on the song's recording, but were replaced on the album by Kelly Rowland.
Since we last spoke about the album, Big Boi has (legally) revealed two more of its tracks, the Kid Cudi-featuring "She Hates Me," and the T.I. and Ludacris-featuring Atlanta boasting party "In the A," both of which you can hear below. In related news, TI just revealed his storied track with Andre 3000, "Sorry," which will appear on his upcoming Trouble Man LP and can also be streamed below.

There are a bunch of Hurricane Sandy Relief benefits happening in NYC today.
Follow BrooklynVegan on instagram.
Divine Fits played "Baby Get Worse" on The Late Show with David Letterman on Friday night (11/16). Check out a video of that performance below.
Miguel played "Do You..." on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night (11/16). Check out a video of that performance below.
To help benefit those who suffered damages from Hurricane Sandy, NBC Universal will be hosting a concert that will air on TV as a telethon with Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting and Christina Aguilera, Jimmy Fallon, and Brian Williams, with host Matt Lauer. The concert will be filmed at NBC's Rockefeller Plaza studios and broadcast on NBC, Bravo, CNBC, E!, G4, MSNBC, Style, Syfy and USA from 8 PM to 9 PM on Friday (11/2). It will also simultaneously stream live on NBC.com. All proceeds from the telethon will go to the American Red Cross (via NY Times).
No audience makes for an awkward monologue
While Hurricane Sandy was hitting its blustery heights yesterday, NYC-based talk shows The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night wtih Jimmy Fallon were set to tape Monday night's shows. Both went on with the show, but sent their audiences home to be with their families. So monologues, chats with guests and musical performances were all done...to nobody, which made for eerie viewing.
On The Late Show, David Letterman had Interpol frontman Paul Banks and you can watch him perform "Young Again" from his new album, Banks, below. No online video for Fallon's musical guest Imagine Dragons, but you can watch his intro to what was indeed a very special episode of his show, below.
Ben Gibbard w/ Death Cab at Beacon Theater in April (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard releases his solo debut LP, Former Lives, this Tuesday (10/16) via Barsuk and he'll play an invite-only record release show in NYC during CMJ on the day of the release (10/16) at HiFi Bar (169 Avenue A, formerly Brownies where Death Cab played way back when). Bird of Youth singer Beth Wawerna is opening the show. Again, there are no tickets available to the public for this show but Ben is giving list spots away on his Facebook.
Ben was also on Fallon this past Friday (10/12) to play "Teardrop Windows" and "Oh, Woe" off of Former Lives. You can watch videos of those two performances, stream Former Lives in its entirety, and check out an updated list of all upcoming dates, below.

Jens Lekman @ Terminal 5, 10/9/2012
Jens Lekman brought his tour with Taken by Trees to NYC for a show at Terminal 5 on Monday night (10/8). Both artists are touring in support of their new albums -- Jens released I Know What Love Isn't in September and Taken by Trees released Other Worlds earlier this month -- and both focused their sets largely on those new releases. If you were at the show, did you pick up one of Jens' custom notebooks that were on sale at the merch table?
Before the Terminal 5 show, Jens taped an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that aired last night (10/9), where he performed the title track off of his new album. The Who's Pete Townshend was also a guest on that episode. The video of Jens' Fallon performance and pictures from the Terminal 5 show are in this post.
Both Jens Lekman and Taken by Trees also recently released music videos for tracks off of their new releases. Jens made a video for "Become Someone Else's" and Taken by Trees made one for "Large." You can watch both of those, and check out more pics and the setlist from the T5 show, and the Fallon video below.
Pete Townshend at Barnes & Noble Union Square (via @Griffin Lotz/RollingStone.com)
The Who's Pete Townshend came to NYC this week in support of his new memoir, Who I Am, making appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and NYPL on Monday (10/8), at Barnes & Noble in Union Square yesterday (10/9), and then on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon later that night (the same episode that Jens Lekman was the musical guest on). That's a picture of him performing at Barnes & Noble above, where he played "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Drowned" after a 45-minute interview. He also performed at his NYPL appearance, playing "Drowned" and "I'm One." Rolling Stone attended the B&N show and they report:
Townshend also opened up about the difficulty he's faced continuing the band after John Entwistle's death in 2002. "We feel the ghosts of Keith and John," Townshend said. "The second phase of the Who in a sense was really when we started to tour again around the year 2000, 2001. We were still able to evoke the sound, particularly with Zak Starkey. Now it's much more difficult even though Zak's there. John's sound was very big and rich and organic. When John died, there was a hole in the sound onstage and I was able to grow into that and find space. And I have to say as a guitar player, I prefer working without John. But as a member of the Who creating the incredible, powerful, driving, visceral sound, he's gone. I can't really do that again."You can check out videos from his interviews on The Daily Show and Fallon, and his performance "Drowned" from the NYPL show below. You'll notice in the Daily Show video that when Pete walks out, Jon Stewart's house band plays a clip strikingly similar to the second half of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." Neither Pete or Jon acknowledge it, but it's a pretty ironic move considering Pete never liked Zeppelin's music (though he does think they're great guys).
At one point, Wenner asked Townshend why he hasn't made a solo album in 20 years. "I write lots of music, I record lots of music. I probably write a song every couple of days," he said. "I have a very big archive of unfinished material."
Currently, Townshend is working on the musical project Floss, which he said he is about two-thirds finished, which he described as "a story with music, characters, a Aristotelian plot line very different from what I've done in the past. . . . The thesis is we're all terrified. We're living in terror, we're living in anxiety, discomfort and the fear that we have is for the future, the fear for our children's future, we're worried about the planet, we're worried about terrorism, being able to sustain life as we love it, we're afraid we can't guarantee peace."
Townshend said he loves Lady Gaga and constantly listens to music. "I just kind of surf Spotify and last.fm and iTunes and stick it on my iPhone. I listen to a lot of new music." He added that he predicted digital downloads "back in 1985 and before that in 1971. I knew there the digital revolution would change the way art happens and is made and is sold and we're not finished yet."
The Who are taking their Quadrophenia tour to the NYC area for four shows in November and December.
Videos are below.
Animal Collective at Prospect Park in 2011 (more by Vincent Cornelli)
Animal Collective were scheduled to bring their tour with Micachu & the Shapes to Williamsburg Park tonight (10/5), but have cancelled. The band writes...
Hey everyone,Damn. Feel better Dave!
We really wish we didn?t have to be writing this right now, but after taking Dave to the doctor this morning it turns out that he has laryngitis and unfortunately we are unable to play the show tonight. We are already in the middle of trying to reschedule NY dates in the next couple of months to make up for this cancellation.
Due to circumstances beyond both our and the promoter's control, we are unable to honor the tickets for tonight's show. Fans that have tickets will be able to get full refunds at the place of purchase, and we will let everyone know as soon as we have new dates scheduled. Again, our sincere apologies to fans anticipating this show. We are always psyched to play NYC and will make it up to you.
Micachu & The Shapes were supposed to open, but you can still catch them Monday at LPR. Micachu also DJs at Cameo tonight.
Animal Collective did play Fallon last night though. You can watch below...
Morrissey on 'Fallon'
Morrissey, as we mentioned he would, played Fallon last night (10/4), one night before his tour begins (tonight) in Boston. He covered Frankie Valli's "To Give (The Reason I Live)" as well as "You Have Killed Me" from 2006's Ringleader of the Tormentors. You can watch the videos below.
Was also recently mentioned that Morrissey claims Coachella will go vegetarian for a Smiths reunion. We however didn't mention the latest rumor -- claiming that the Smiths actually were reuniting in 2013 -- which was, naturally, quickly denied by Morrissey's rep, but not before the Internet was full of new articles.
Fallon videos are below...
