'Red Hot & Fela' @ Damrosch Park, 7/24/2013
Kronos Quartet isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when the Nigerian bandleader Fela Anikulapo Kuti is mentioned. Afrobeat, funk, protest, defiance and dancing are a lot closer to the top of the list. Afrobeat, the style Fela (who died in 1997) forged from James Brown's funk, 1960s jazz, African drumming and finger-pointing lyrics about exploitation and corruption, was music for dancing all night in steamy clubs; it was far from the realm of the string quartet. So "Red Hot + Fela," at Damrosch Park on Wednesday night, made an unlikely starting point for Kronos at 40, five days of free concerts at the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival celebrating the determined eclecticism of the Kronos Quartet over four decades. - [NY Times]The Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival kicked off Wednesday night (7/24) with the first installment of Kronos at 40, a tribute to Fela Kuti featuring Superhuman Happiness, Mickey Hart, Sinkane, Alex Toth, Fela's drummer and afrobeat legend Tony Allen and more. Pictures from Red Hot + Fela Live are in this post.
Lincoln Center Out of Doors and Kronos at 40 continues tonight (7/26) with "Romance of the Iron Bow" at Hearst Plaza (6 PM); Magda Giannikou performs at Josie Robertson Plaza (7 PM); and Kronos Quartet with special guests Magda Giannikou and Vân-Ánh Võ, as well as The Gloaming (which features Thomas Bartlet aka Doveman) are at Damrosch Park Bandshell (7:30 PM).
Lincoln Center Out of Doors runs through August 11. More pictures from Red Hot + Fela Live and its complete setlist, below.
Kronos Quartet / Superhuman Happiness
The free 2013 Lincoln Center Out of Doors season is beginning at Damrosch Park this Wednesday (7/24) with "KRONOS at 40," a "festival within a festival" that includes the Kronos Quartet performing a number of works with many different special guests. The first show in the series is Red Hot + FELA LIVE!, a concert in honor of Fela Kuti that also features Tony Allen and Superhuman Happiness with
Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio), Kyp Malone (TVOTR), Sinkane, Baloji, Abena Koomson, Sahr Nguajah, and Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket). At this show, Superhuman Happiness will be premiering their score to How to Survive a Plague.
UPDATE: Both TVOTR members actually dropped off a while ago, but Bajah, M1 (of Dead Prez), and Alex Toth (of Rubblebucket) have since been added to the lineup. To be more exact it now looks like this:

DOWNLOAD: Oberhofer - Landline (live @ Snacky Tunes) (MP3)
Ex Cops @ South Street Seaport, 7/13/2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
We mentioned before that there was a Sandy relief benefit happening at Cameo on Tuesday (11/13) being presented by Finger on the Pulse / Snacky Tunes folks (Greg and Darin Bresnitz). The benefit also doubles as the release party for Snacky Tunes Vol. 3, the the latest free, downloadable collection of live performances from their internet radio show of the same name that broadcasts on the Heritage Radio network (whose booth is in Roberta's back yard). The new volume includes songs from Wallpaper, Zambri, Spinto Band, Sinkane and Brad Oberhofer who performs a solo acoustic version of "Landline" which you can download at the top of this post.
The line-up for the Cameo release party/benefit has changed since we originally posted about it. Emil & Friends have dropped off the bill, replaced by Ex-Cops. Moon Hooch and Erika Spring with both be performing as well, as mentioned previously, and Computer Magic will be on DJ duty throughout the night. A $5 donation at the door gets you in (feel free to donate more) and all proceeds (as well as 10% of the bar, so drink up) go to the Red Hook Initiative. Updated flyer is below.
Meanwhile, Ex Cops have announced details of their debut album, True Hallucinations, which comes out January 22 via Other Music Recording Co. Produced by John Siket (Sonic Youth, Blonde Redhead), the record shows off Brian Harding's strong songwriting chops (and the lovely vocals of Amalie Bruun) over the course of 11 jangly, just-hazy-enough songs that all get straight to the hooks. You can stream "James" from the album below and check out True Hallucination's cover art and tracklist.

The Orwells, free tattoos & Kitty Pryde @ Public Assembly - 10/20/2012
The second free 2012 BrooklynVegan not-CMJ party went down on Saturday (10/20) at Public Assembly after our Friday party, which happened at the same venue the day earlier. We already talked about how great Miguel was, and posted pics of Caveman, Ratking and Sinkane, but the day was packed with ten other of our great artists, all of who you can see pictures of in this post.
It was the Saturday morning of CMJ, so if you were there when doors opened at noon, you were probably stumbling in hungover from the night before (unless of course, you had copped yourself some of the Mercy hangover prevention drink at our Friday party). But young Chicago-suburb punks The Orwells did a fine job of waking everyone up, including those who were camped at the door to be first in line for the free tattoos we gave out for six hours straight. As the tatto guns started buzzing, the Orwells were blasting the early but nice-sized crowd with their raunchy garage punk led by frontman Mario Cuomo's unforgiving Iggy Pop-style stage presence. Meanwhile, New Zealand psych pop project Opossum were warming up the rest of the party attendees in the back room.
Energy levels stayed high in the front room as Hunters followed, and the back room were treated to dreamier sounds by LA's Tashaki Miyaki. Then came sets by the funky Sinkane, the great, orchestral Choir of Young Believers, a strong set by indie pop band Eternal Summers, and a more than charming one by Kitty Pryde. Kitty, who spent part of her set in the crowd, was the first of four rappers in the back room, with her set followed by Ratking, Cities Aviv, and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire (who went on after watching Miguel from the front row on the other stage) (Miguel returned the favor). And the front room was wrapped up by Hundred Waters, one of this year's buzzed about bands at CMJ, whose set we reviewed from the night earlier, and then Miguel and Caveman.
Attendees at the show were fueled by complimentary drinks courtesy of Sailor Jerry Rum, complimentary beer courtesy of PBR, and snacked on the free Raw Revolution organic live food bars that were scattered around the venue. Hopefully nobody had a hangover thanks to cans of the Mercy that were given out aplenty.
More pictures from the Saturday party are below.

Sinkane @ Brooklyn Bowl - 10/23/2012
For such a multifaceted album, Mars feels personal, in part because most of the instrumentation and nearly all of the vocals come from one man. In every track, Gallab plays at least three instruments (in "Caparundi," he's credited with nine), and each instrument bears traces of the sounds that influenced Gallab. In the funky twang of the guitar that opens "Runnin'," the dance-friendly 4/4 kick running under "Jeeper Creeper" and the cosmic flourishes that pepper the jazzy title track, Gallab finds consistency in experimentation, and focus in the freewheeling....We have some pictures here from last night's show. They continue below...

Caveman at Public Assembly - 10/20/12
Caveman played the BrooklynVegan day party on Saturday (10/20) at Public Assembly (their third BV-booked show in 2 years), headlining the front room right after Miguel played. Pictures from their set, which still had a large crowd (we were worried about the changeover with them on right after Miguel) are in this post.
Caveman will now make a couple more appearances in NYC this week, including Petty Fest at Webster Hall tonight (10/24) and a FILTER Magazine-presented party on Hudson RIver Park's Pier 57 on Friday (10/26) with DJ sets by Albert Hammond Jr. (of The Strokes) and Sinkane, who also played the BV Saturday day party. That show is free with RSVP but entry is first come, first served. The show runs from 8 PM to 12 AM. The flier and more pictures from the BV Saturday day party, below...
Ratking at Public Assembly - 10/20/12
Sinkane at Public Assembly - 10/20/12
NYC rap crew Ratking and funky synth pop project Sinkane both played a number of CMJ shows last week, including the BrooklynVegan day party on Saturday (10/20) which they were both on. Pictures of Ratking's and Sinkane's set from that party are in this post.
The two groups will team up again in NYC this week for an in-store at the Puma Store (521 Broadway) on Thursday (10/25) with DJ Physical Therapy. The show is 21+, runs from 7 PM to 10 PM, and you can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. The flier for this show is below.
Ratking, as mentioned, also recently dropped a remix of King Krule's "Octopus" which you can stream below.
Sinkane, who since played a record release show at Brooklyn Bowl last night (10/23), has other upcoming shows in NYC, including one with !!! at Music Hall of Williamsburg (12/13) and one with ESG at Bowery Electric (11/1). They'll also be supporting Yeasayer (who main member Ahmed Gallab once drummed for) on their upcoming tour which hits the NYC area on November 13 at the Capitol Theatre (tickets). They'll also support Toro y Moi on their recently announced tour but won't be at the Webster Hall show (2/13) (Wild Belle and Dog Bite will).
