Kanye West @ Roseland Ballroom - 5/15/2013 (virgilabloh)
Kanye West @ Roseland Ballroom - 5/15/2013 (lacreated)
As mentioned, Kanye West played a private show for Adult Swim Wednesday night at Roseland Ballroom in NYC, ahead of his SNL appearance. New songs were played, in a Daft Punk-less tent pyramid thing. Watch a few videos below...
He may or may not be referring to the private "Upfront" show Kanye is playing for Adult Swim at Roseland. If it is the same show, then it is unclear why he used the term "Pop-Up". We'll find out soon!\
Kanye also plays SNL on Saturday and Governors Ball this summer.
Here's an interesting concept. Justin Timberlake is playing a Mastercard-sponsored show at Roseland Ballroom in NYC on May 5. Tickets for this intimate-compared-to-Yankee-Stadium show cost $129.50+taxe+fees each, but you need to "register for a chance" at being one of the "lucky" who is allowed to purchase your way in to the "priceless" experience. Good luck!
Justin's two Yankee Stadium shows with Jay-Z are in July.
Head to Veganville with Justin below...

Kendrick Lamar touched down in NYC for two shows at Roseland Ballroom on Tuesday (2/26) (early and late)., part of HOT 97 and MetroPCS's "5 Boro Takeover Tour" that also includes an upcoming T.I. show.
No Drake, but he brought out an incredible group of collaborators including all of Black Hippy (Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul), A$AP Rocky, YG, 50 Cent, and Tony Yayo. Kendrick and his friends played a bunch of cuts off of his unstoppable good kid, m.A.A.d city, reached back to early albums and mixtapes, and played some of his guests' material (like "Fuckin Problems" with A$AP Rocky) with the crowd screaming along the whole time. Both shows were sold out and totally packed, and you can check out pictures of the craziness from the early show in this post.
Ab-Soul (and friends?) sticks around NY and plays SOB's tonight (2/27) with Bishop Nehru and more.
Kendrick also performed "Poetic Justice" on on Letterman on Tuesday with his band. The video of that performance and more pictures and a video from the early show at Roseland below...
If, like us, you were bummed that Kendrick Lamar toured in support of his excellent good kid, m.A.A.d city before it actually came out, it probably came as a pleasant surprise when he was announced for this year's Governors Ball, which goes down in NYC this June. But if you don't wanna fork over the cash for a festival, would rather see him at his own show, or simply can't wait that long, you're in luck. Kendrick is on a European tour right now, and upon returning home he's got some US shows on his horizon including a NYC gig at Roseland Ballroom on February 26. Tickets for that show go on "Internet" presale today (1/7) at 10 AM with a general sale starting Friday (2/8) at noon. Anyone know the presale password? UPDATE: The PASSWORD is dazzle.
The NYC show is also part of Metro PCS's 5th anniversary of their "5 Boro Takeover Tour". To quote them, "We've got Kendrick Lamar, French Montana, T.I., Mavado featuring Konshens, and Alicia Keys with Miguel hitting up the boroughs, so stay tuned for more info! Want the first tickets? Stop by the Cipha Sounds live broadcast on Friday from 4-6pm at the Metro PCS on 162 Jamaica Ave in Queens."

Radiohead at Roseland, Sept 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Like Beastie Boys concert film, Awesome, I Shot That (which was also shot in NYC), though on a more guerrilla level, a full Radiohead concert shot entirely on handheld cameras was recently posted online. The full show (with pro-audio) was shot during their two Roseland gigs from September 2011. Watch below.
Hot Chip at Prospect Park in July (more by Toby Tenenbaum)

Grace Jones @ Roseland Ballroom - Oct 27, 2012
Grace Jones, who was last played NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom in 2009, headlined a pre-Halloween/Hurricane show back in NYC at the similar Roseland Ballroom on 10/27. Presented by Red Bull Academy, the show was conceptualized by "British Couturier" Philip Treacy, and 64 year old Grace wore costumes by designers Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier and Alexander McQueen, as she played a mix of classics and covers.
Jones stayed in a black corset with thong, fishnets and heels the entire evening and spent the night accenting this with her various changes offstage, though she never made clear which designer she was wearing (most of the hats probably were Treacy, and one or two of the more unusual pieces probably Gaultier). Her fans dressed up, too: Holding the concert on the Saturday before Halloween only sealed the deal as the room looked like it was packed with extras from Party Monster and Paris Is Burning.Full setlist and more pictures from part of the show, below...
Fronting a six-piece band and two backup singers, Jones took the stage in near darkness and opened with "Nightclubbing." The woman is in phenomenal shape and appears downright ageless. As she stood on a riser above the stage in an outfit that lit up, her sultry take on the David Bowie/Iggy Pop song set the mood for the evening as she sang, "Oh, isn't it wild?" [Hollywood Reporter]

New Order, 2012 Edition
New Order have just announced a Fall tour of North America, including a New York date at Roseland on October 18. No on-sale date has been posted yet, but you can (like we will be) check Ticketmaster for updates.
This will be New Order's first NYC show since their Hammerstein Ballroom show in 2005. As you may be aware, this version of New Order does not feature bassist Peter Hook who is slightly irked that the band are getting someone else to perform his signature bass parts. However, this will mark the return of NO founding guitarist/keyboardist Gillian Gilbert who took a leave of absence from the group in 2001 to care for her and drummer Stephen Morris' child.
Hook is probably not too excited that New Order will play the 2012 Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony alongside Blur and The Specials in London on August 12.
Check out a recent interview with Gilbert, Morris and frontman Bernard Sumner via YouTube below.
Meanwhile, despite saying how it's not the same New Order without him, he continues to tour with his band The Light playing Joy Division albums in full. He's also publishing a book about his years with the influential post-punk group, tilted Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division, which will be out in October. Says Hook:
It's very strange. Over the years Joy Division has become a huge part of music culture. A lot of people think they know what happened. But they don't. Anyone who's ever written a book or made a film about Joy Division, unless they were sat in that van or car with us, they don't know anything about it. Me, Barney, Steve, Ian, Rob, Twinny, Terry and Dave. Only us lot know what really happened...I supposed in the end it's almost too easy to look back and say what you should have done, how you might have changed things. How you might have done things differently and ultimately stopped Ian from doing what he did. What's harder, what's much, much harder, is to accept what you actually did do. Accept what you did do, and live with it.All New Order 2012 tour dates are listed below.

Jack White at Roseland Ballroom 5/22/12
Jack White played his second of two nights at Roseland Ballroom last night (5/22), again supported by Alabama Shakes. Unlike at his first Roseland show (pictures HERE), which was with his all-male band Los Buzzardos, last night's was with his all-female band, The Peacocks, though he was joined by Los Buzzardos for the encore.
Jack covered similar territory to night 1 with seven White Stripes songs, two Raconteurs tracks ("Carolina Drama" and "Top Yourself"), a Rome cut, and a Dead Weather track ("I Cut Like a Buffalo") in the encore. Like he did the night before, Jack finished off the evening with a pair of White Stripes songs, "Catch Hell Blues" and "Seven Nation Army".
If you missed Jack White live and the flesh, hopefully you caught the set on satellite radio.
More pictures and the setlist from last night's show below...

Jack White at Roseland Ballroom 5/21/12
Jack White's tour stopped in NYC last night (5/21) for his first of two sold out Roseland Ballroom shows with Alabama Shakes. Last night's show was with Lox Buzzardos, his all-male band. He played a similar set to his Webster Hall show in April, mixing material off his new album, Blunderbuss, with White Stripes, Raconteurs, and Dead Weather tracks. He also threw in "Two Against One," one of the songs he contributed to on Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi's Rome album, and a cover of Hank Williams' "You Know That I Know."
Jack will do it again tonight (5/22) and if you can't make it to tonight's show, he'll be streaming the entire thing live on SiriusXMU at 9 PM. In addition, SiriusXMU will also be airing an interview with Jack by SiriusXM host jenny Eliscu at 5 PM.

Mastodon @ Roseland Ballroom
From the opening wails of "Black Tongue" (accompanied by some adorable tongue-wagging by guitarist Brent Hinds) to the soaring peaks of "Octopus Has No Friends," [Mastodon] deftly wove its way through a setlist containing most of the tracks from last year's The Hunter along with other fan favorites. An extra-flashy light setup cloaked the band in hazy neon lights, making already-epic songs like "Blasteroid" downright menacing. The extra bits of A/V magic--including a pair of glowing, flashing eyes embedded in the tapestry behind the foursome--dramatically reiterated what we all already knew: Mastodons are masters of their craft. -[CMJ]The Mastodon/Opeth/Ghost Heritage Hunter tour breezed into NYC on Wednesday (4/11) when the bands shared a stage at Roseland Ballroom. Here are some pics and all setlists.

Alambama Shakes @ SXSW 2012 (photo by hools)

Tickets go on sale on Friday. So fired up for these dates."Tickets to the shows are now on Ticketmaster and go on general sale Friday, 3/23, at 1pm.

"Exactly twelve hours later, my ears are still screaming, my head still pounding from Jack White's incinerating double-band set at the Third Man Records showcase at SXSW on Friday night. Running the track gamut through his various bands and projects after fantastic opening sets from White Rabbits, Reggie Watts, John Reilly and Karen Elson, White unleashed a nearly two-dozen song show at the Stage on Sixth - packed with new songs and old favorites - which concretely affirmed that the demise of The White Stripes is under no circumstance a signaled retreat from the days of Jack's blazing blues-rock lashings and furious guitar-solo spaz-outs." [antiquiet]Check out most of the setlist from Jack White's SXSW show, White Stripes songs included, below.
Like on SNL, he played first with a female band, and then with an all male one. As antiquiet points out, Bill Murray was among those rocking out in the audience. Many people were also listening from the street as you can see in the video below.
And... Jack White has announced a tour that will bring him to Roseland Ballroom in NYC for two shows in May...

The currently-six-show run kicks off with three NYC shows and also includes a NJ show. They'll play Roseland Ballroom on February 10, Terminal 5 on February 12, and Webster Hall on February 15, except they'll be calling Webster Hall The Ritz for that show, as that was the name of the venue when they filmed Live at the Ritz there in 1988. The tour also brings them to Atlantic City's House of Blues on February 24. Tickets for the NYC shows go on sale Wednesday (2/1) at noon and tickets for the Atlantic City show goes on sale Friday (2/3). All dates are listed below.

Not only is Bjork playing those four shows at Roseland, but they are in the round, and she's also playing six more at The New York Hall of Science in Queens in February. That's 10 NYC shows total! More details and exact dates below...
We already knew that Bjork had plans for multiple 'Biophilia' shows in NYC, "tentatively in early 2012", but as of yesterday there was still no news on exactly where or when. Then last night tickets mysteriously popped up on Ticketmaster for four Bjork shows at Roseland Ballroom: 2/22, 2/25, 2/28, and 3/02. Those ticket links have since been removed, but not before a bunch of people saw it. Stay tuned!
