Run the Jewels at Outside Lands 2014 (more by Samantha Saturday)
FADER and vitaminwater's #uncapped series in NYC continues with another show on August 19 at SIR Stage 37 (508 West 37th St) featuring R&B crooner Jeremih and Killer Mike and El-P's no-bullshit rap project, Run the Jewels, plus a DJ set by DJ Envy. It's free but you have to RSVP to get in. RTJ have a few other dates coming up, including FYF Fest and FFF Fest. All of their dates are listed below.
Run the Jewels spoke about their upcoming sophomore album, Run the Jewels 2, in a new interview with XXL, where they talked about two guests they'll have on it, Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack De La Rocha and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker:
El-P: Well we can share what's already out now. We got Zack De La Rocha from Rage Against The Machine. My boy Travis Barker is on the album as well. Me and Mike are on the album, we're on every song. [Laughs] It's a dope record. The fact of the matter is it's the El-P and Mike show. The record really doesn't have a lot of features on it. There are some friends that pop up here and there but it's not a big feature record.Jeremih is also planning a new album, which Buzzfeed just did an interesting article on, discussing how he bridges the gap between indie-approved R&B and the more radio-ready stuff. You can hear his "indie" side on his recenty-released EP with Shlohmo, and for the radio stuff, check out his new single with Omarion, "Show Me," below.
Killer Mike: We didn't plot to go find Zack De La Rocha and Travis Barker. We were at the studio smoking a joint and El and Zack saw each other grabbing a sandwich. Him and El was there and I was with Travis smoking weed. This record is very organic. One thing, when we made Run The Jewels, we never wanted to get--you can't make a better collab record than DJ Khaled, so if you ain't Khaled don't go fucking around with all the features, just do what you do to the best of your ability. And that's what Run The Jewels is. When you buy a Run The Jewels album, you're buying a Run The Jewels album.
Bon Iver / Frank Ocean @ Angel Orensanz 9/24/2012
Following their respective Radio City and ATP NY appearances, Bon Iver and Frank Ocean played the intimate, ornate LES space Angel Orensanz last night (9/24), a surprise RSVP-only affair presented by Vitamin Water/Fader. The lines for the show wrapped around the block and only a fraction of people who RSVPed actually got in, but those who did were treated to hour-long sets from both performers.
Bon Iver is taking a break from touring for a while after nearly two years of constant activity, but recent reports of his retirement appear to be greatly exaggerated. We previously posted a picture Frank Ocean's setlist. More pictures from the show, below...
Bon Iver at Radio City - 9/20/12 (via Bon Iver Instragram)
Bon Iver, who just wrapped up a four-night run at Radio City has been revealed as one of the two acts for the last show in FADER and Vitamin Water's #uncapped series, which happens in NYC TONIGHT (9/24) at Angel Orensanz (172 Norfolk St). Spots are very limited and RSVP is open now. If you've been following along, you know that for these shows, FADER and Vitamin Water partner two different artists together. Any guesses on who the other act will be? (hint: Frank Ocean who played ATP Friday night)
The archive of Bon Iver's Radio City show from this past Friday (9/21) is now streaming at the Bowery Presents YouTube Channel for the next 48 hours.

Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon and Big Boi @ Fader on 8/7/2012
Little Dragon played East Austin's Millenium Center last night (8/7) as part of the Vitamin Water Uncapped series of parties being thrown by Fader. For their last song, Big Boi came out for a performance of "Mama Told Me," a single off of his upcoming album, Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors (due out 11/13), which Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano sings on. According to Big Boi, the track is one of two on his new album to feature a collaboration with Little Dragon. A-Trak performed after that, with Little Dragon and Big Boi returning to the stage for "Shutterbug." As you might imagine, the party (which was also MC'd by onetime BET host Miss Info) was mobbed. Pictures from the event are in this post.
