FlyLo @ T5, 10/7/2012 (via @corneliuslives)
Flying Lotus played Terminal 5 last night (10/7) as part of his NYC Takeover and you can watch video of his T5 performance at the bottom of this post. The takeover also included a stop at the Warp Records booth at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair on Saturday (10/6) and continues on with a Boiler Room NYC performance tonight (10/8, guest list only but can be streamed live) with Questlove, Flatbush Zombies, Just Blaze, Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era, and The Underachievers; and a visit to the Apple SoHo store on Tuesday (10/9) and more.
Additionally, on Wednesday (10/10) there is the Brainfeeder Session NYC show at Villain in Williamsburg that features The Gaslamp Killer, Martyn, Dorian Concept, Jeremiah Jae, Taylor McFerrin, The Underachievers and "very special guests." Could FlyLo be that special guest? That show is free but you do need to RSVP (which is now open).
Additionally, he'll be here next week for CMJ for a show at Le Poisson Rouge on October 17 with Death Grips.
Video from Flying Lotus' Terminal 5 show is below.

Flying Lotus at Coachella 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Flying Lotus is about to welcome his new album, Until the Quiet Comes next week (10/2) via Warp. As the album title implies, it's a "quieter" record than the maximalist Cosmogramma, but it's just as fleshed out and compelling. You can stream the album ahead of its release date at NPR. The video for "Putty Boy Strut" can be watched below.
As mentioned, FlyLo will be supporting the album with a tour that hits NYC on October 7 at Terminal 5 with Thundercat and other Brainfeeder artists. Tickets for that show are still available. That's the first date club date on his tour, but he's since revealed that the tour will kick off with a "take over" of LA and NYC surrounding that date.
In NYC, he'll appear at the Warp booth at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair on October 6, where he'll be signing copies of his new album. That's free and the booth will be open from 11 AM to 6 PM. The day after the T5 show, he'll play a Red Bull Music Academy Takeover for Boiler Room NYC (10/8) with a great lineup of Questlove, Flatbush Zombies, Just Blaze, Joey Bada$$ & Pro Era, and The Underachievers. That show is guest list only but you can watch it live at boilerroom.tv. On October 9 he'll partake in the "Meet the Musician" series at Apple Store SoHo where he'll give a talk and also perform. That show runs from 6-8 PM and is free but space is very limited.
Lastly, he'll do two events on October 10, including the East Village Radio Takeover, where Flying Lotus and Brainfeeder artists Gaslamp Killer, Martyn, Dorian Concept, Jeremiah Jae, Taylor McFerrin, and The Underachievers will take over two hours of air time on East Village Radio from 2-4 PM to preview their showcase which happens later that night at new Brooklyn venue Villain (50 North 3 St). That show is also presented by the Red Bull Music Academy and features the same lineup (UPDATE: FlyLo is not confirmed) as the radio takeover plus "very special guests." No ticket info for this show at the moment.
An updated list of Flying Lotus dates and the video for "Putty Boy Strut" are below.
French producer Onra (aka Arnaud Bernard) kicked off a North American tour in Chicago last week in support of his new Deep in the NIght EP (due out 6/12 via Fool's Gold). That tour comes to NYC later this summer for a live set at Santos Party House on July 17 with Taylor McFerrin, The Doppelgangaz, and DJ Sean Rowlands. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Onra recently revealed, "L.O.V.E.," the first track off of the Deep in the NIght EP. Stream that track, alongside a list of all tour dates below.
Pharoahe Monch at Fun Fun Fun Fest in 2010 (more by BBG)
In addition to the free show at Weeksville Heritage Center, Pharoahe Monch has a few other NYC shows in July. He plays B.B. King's on July 12 with Heltah Skeltah, OGC, and Black Rob. Tickets are still on sale.
Pharoahe Monch also appears as a guest with the Miguel Atwood-Ferguson ensemble at Harlem Stage on July 9 in Annunciation Park (entrance Amsterdam Ave. and W. 134th Street). Jazz vocalist Jose James and Zap Mama will also be guests at the FREE show that Taylor McFerrin opens. J. Period is the evening's DJ. This one runs from 5-9 PM, with 4 PM gates. "In addition to the live music, concert guests enjoy food and hand-made products from local vendors, and an American Airlines raffle. Blankets only, no lawn chairs allowed."
If you haven't heard of multi instrumentalist/dj/arranger/composer/music director/producer/educator Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, you probably at least know some of his collaborators like Stevie Wonder, Outkast, Rihanna, Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc and countless others. His ensemble performs original music, covers of unreleased J Dilla tracks, and will pay tribute to Gil Scott-Heron at the Harlem show.
A similar show happened in LA in 2010 with Flying Lotus as part of the ensemble and with special guest Aloe Blacc and Bilal. You can listen to that entire peformance, and watch some video from it, below....
