Jamie Lidell @ Glasslands, 4/9/2013
With his show at Music Hall of Williamsburg sold out, electrofunk practitioner Jamie Lidell added a second show in the Brooklyn nabe at the much smaller, now-cloudless Glasslands on Tuesday (4/9). The show, which featured an opening set from Ludwig Persik, was the inaugural "NYC Popup" event thown by WillCall mobile app. (WillCall and Glasslands previously teamed up to help out on our first day party of SXSW 2013.) At the helm of a control deck worthy of the Millenium Falcon, Jamie let his magnetic personality and powerful pipes pilot the night.
Jamie Lidell and Empress Of's sold-out MHoW goes down Saturday night (4/13). More pics from Glasslands are below.
As mentioned, Jamie Lidell is currently on tour in support of his new, self-titled album. That tour hits NYC on April 13 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Empress Of and Ludwig Persik, which is sold out. If you wanted to go and didn't get tickets, fear not: Jamie's just added another show in Williamsburg, playing a few days earlier at Glasslands on April 9 with opener Ludwig Persik. (That date was originally scheduled for Toronto which is now happening on 4/8.) Tickets can only be purchased through the WillCall mobile app that's available for iPhone/Ipad and Android.
Jamie recently released a remix of "You Naked" by Jimmy Edgar and you can stream that below. Updated dates are below too.

Brooklyn band El Sportivo & The Blooz will release their debut album, Nights & Weekends, next week (2/26) via White Iris, the label that gave us early tastes of Best Coast, Guards and FIDLAR. As the band's name implies, they've got a dusty, bluesy rock sound and we've got the premiere of the album's lead track, "Breaks My Heart," which you can stream below.
The band will play a record release show in NYC on February 27 at Pianos which is also part of the last week of Cascading Slopes and Ludwig Persik's residency there. Rumors and Twin Wave also play and advance tickets are available.
El Sportivo & The Blooz will also play another NYC show at The Gutter on March 9. They've got a couple LA shows this week as well and all tour dates are listed below...
