Laura Marling

Friends and tour-mates Laura Marling and Johnny Flynn played around five songs each at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square last night (Sept 16). We thought for sure they'd go from there to Union Pool to help their friends in Noah & the Whale play their first-ever NYC show, but that didn't happen. Laura and Johnny also played a full show one night earlier and Bowery Ballroom and now they're on tour. More Virgin pictures below...

Ra Ra Riot @ Virgin Store

Leia stopped by Ra Ra Riot's free Virgin Megastore show the other today to take some pictures. The show was the same day RRR's new album came out on Barsuk and that is also the occasion that motivated them to release four pro-shot live-in-an-attic videos to the Internet.

Black Kids

Black Kids are playing a free show in a store tonight (July 22, 2008). The occasion is the release of their new record "Partie Traumatic" which is (still) streaming in its entirety at AOL.

Partie Traumatic will be available to purchase at the Virgin Megastore Union Square location from 9:00am. Fans buying a copy of the album at the store will receive a wristband for this very special performance at 7:00pm. The performance will be followed by a CD/LP signing. Time and space are limited, so please arrive early.
Although free, their Virgin set will likely be much shorter in length than the real show they're playing Friday at Santos Party House with Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson. Black Kids will also appear on The Late Show With David Letterman on Thursday.

UPDATE: Pitchfork reviewed the album, sort of....

Updated tour dates below...

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings
