Delicate Steve @ Baby's All Right - 4/20/14
Delicate Steve

In the midst of the Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks / Dustin Wong tour, Dustin Wong and Slasher Flicks member (Angel) Deradoorian took a night off to team up with the jammy Delicate Steve for a Brooklyn show at Baby's All Right last night (4/20), following that venue's Grateful Dead Brunch. Pictures of that show are in this post.

Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks and Dustin Wong continue their tour in NYC tonight (4/21) with a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom.

Meanwhile, Delicate Steve announced that he'll be playing one of this year's Summerstage shows in Red Hook Park on June 7 with psych-folk musician Marissa Nadler and ambient guitarist/ex-Emeralds member Mark McGuire. That's one of many upcoming dates for Marissa Nadler. Her full tour schedule, and more pics from Delicate Steve's Baby's show, below...

Deer Tick at Red Hook Park - 6/21/12
Deer Tick

Not long after Action Bronson and Das Racist did it, Deer Tick played a free show in Brooklyn's Red Hook Park last week (6/21) with Jonny Corndawg, courtesy of Summerstage. When we last spoke, we mentioned that they covered the Beastie Boys' "FIght For Your Right" and that pictures from the show were on the way. Those pictures are in this post.

As you know if you follow BrooklynVegan Instagram, "Deer Tick shows now more interactive with the introduction of DINGO." Based on the popular game BINGO (ok, it's exactly the same as BINGO), everyone in the audience gets a DINGO board and checks off the squares as Deer Tick plays certain songs or does certain crazy things. Winners can get on stage, and at least in this case, "do whatever they want". You'll see the one DINGO winner from this show, in a purple tank top, in the pictures below.

After the show, Jonny Corndawg went on to play Brooklyn Bowl the next night (6/22) with The Infamous Stringdusters, and Deer Tick's John McCauley and Robbie Crowell went on to play two shows as members of Diamond Rugs. As mentioned, Diamond Rugs will be on Letterman tonight (6/25).

More pictures from Red Hook Park are below...

As previously mentioned, Big K.R.I.T. & Freddie Gibbs are on tour and hitting Southpaw later this month.

Raekwon will headline BB King's on April 17th, alongside Ultramagnetic MC's (billed as an exclusive reunion show, I assume that means that Kool Keith is on board much like at ATP New Jersey), MC Eiht, Bushwick Bill (Geto Boys), Chip Fu (Fu-Schnickens), Da Bushbabees, Tanya Morgan, Tony Touch, and many many more including "special invited VIP surprise guests" and the host D-Stroy (Arsonists). Tickets are on sale. The show takes place just four days before Raekwon will team with The Lox, EPMD, Brand Nubian, and Nice and Smooth as part of a Salute to Hip Hop at Best Buy Theater on April 13th. Tickets are still available.

Tanya Morgan has another NYC date too, TONIGHT (4/5) at Southpaw, as the hip hop crew will pair with DJ Neil Armstrong (Jay-Z's touring DJ) for a free, 21+ event.

Speaking of Jay-Z, have you checked out his new "Life and Times" blog? One of his first posts is on Little Dragon.

Keith Murray will similarly team with a gang of 90's hip hop stars at Santos on April 14th. He'll be joined by Lords of the Underground, Group Home, Real Live, Nine, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and DJs Evil D, Eclipse, Kon & Amir, Ralph McDaniels, and many others. Tickets are still available.

Two of the most extreme MCs in hip hop, M.O.P., will hit Southpaw on April 7th with Top $ Raz, Sleepwalkas, and others. Tickets are still available.

Del Thee Funkee Homosapien will hit BB King's on May 1st as part of a round of US dates for the Hiero lynch pin. Tickets are still available. Del will release his new LP Golden Age on April 11th.

Slick Rick is returning to BB King's, as he'll play the venue on May 29th. Tickets are still available.

Talib Kweli will play a FREE show in Red Hook Park on June 21st as part of the City Parks Foundation's Summerstage series. Tons more Summerstage events (and undoubtedly a large number of hip hop ones) are also slated to be announced, we'll keep you informed. Kweli recently played SXSW and released Gutter Rainbows earlier this year.

And last but certainly not least, 9th Wonder and Phonte (aka 2/3 of Little Brother) will join Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg at 92Y Tribeca Wednesday (4/6) night as part of the Noisemakers series, where Rosenberg interviews his guests. Tickets are on sale.

All tour dates and some video is below.

There's also music from St. Vincent, Tune-Yards and Basia Bulat on August 1st at Central Park. The xx play with Jack Penate and Chairlift there on August 8th. At the same spot, Public Enemy play an August 15th day show to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Fear of A Black Planet, and the Specials play on August 22nd with Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears and $mall ¢hange.

The borough-wide shows kick off with Jay Electronica in Red Hook Park on June 1st. Also at that park is Dan Deacon on Tuesday, June 15th. White Rabbits play East River Park on August 12th.

There's lots of great jazz too: McCoy Tyner plays with Ravi Coltrane, Esperanza Spalding and Francisco Mela as part of the CareFusion Jazz Festival on June 23rd. He also plays in the Charlie Parker Jazz Fest, which comes at the end of the summer with an incredible lineup. McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Scott, Jason Moran and the Bandwagon and Revive da Live play during the day at Marcus Garvey on Saturday, August 28th. Then the next day, James Moody, Catherine Russell, Vijay Iyer and The JD Allen Trio play at Tompkins Square Park.

Plus there's a "songbook of Simon & Garfunkel" benefit on June 8th.

Not all "Summerstage" shows are in Central Park anymore which drives home the point even further that the name of the venue in Central Park is actually "Rumsey Playfield" which hosts non-"Summerstage" shows too. Those so far include Coheed/Torche, CAKE, Ween, and Broken Social Scene.

The full Summerstage free show schedule is below...

Dan Deacon

Dan Deacon will play a free show in Brooklyn's Red Hook Park on Tuesday, June 15th at 7pm. The show is part of the new (york) city-wide "Summerstage" series of shows.

According to A&O member Aldis Kaza, more than 450 students attended the annual event, benefiting Freedom From Hunger and The Chicago Food Depository. Co-sponsored by Niteskool Productions, A&O Productions and Mayfest, Sunday night's concert kicked off a month of events leading up to Dillo Day on Saturday, May 29" [North by Northwestern]
