Bon Iver / Frank Ocean @ Angel Orensanz 9/24/2012
Bon Iver
Frank Ocean

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

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
Big Boi @ Fader - 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.

Little Dragon headlines a free Celebrate Brooklyn! show in Prospect Park this Friday (8/10) with Frankie Rose and DJ Voices of Black. If you can't make the show, NPR will be streaming the show live.

More pics and Little Dragon's setlist from the Austin show are below.
