Tame Imala

Australia’s Tame Impala, who are in town for shows at Pianos and Glasslands, played an invite-only (sort of) show at Coco66 last night (6/23). As you can see above, Andrew from MGMT sat in with band. If you’re looking for a connection, the band’s just finished a three-week tour together. All current Tame Impala dates below.

Also last night, the Rapture played a semi-secret show at Union Pool, where they debuted a pair of new songs. They play Friday in Philly and Saturday at NYC”s Milk Studios.

In Manhattan, UK singer Estelle, who performs in Miami tonight, stopped by Talib Kweli‘s show at S.O.B.’s and performed her single “American Boy.” Estelle sings on the new Reflection Eternal (Talib and Hi-Tek) track “Midnight Hour”. You can listen to that song below.

Some grainy tweet pics of both Estelle and the Rapture are also below. There’s also an unrelated video of someone asking MGMT & Tame Impala for directions as an excuse to talk to them on the street before a show posted below…

Running Into Tame Impala and MGMT Bassist/Andrew VW?

3 Hours before the show, we thought we saw some of MGMT walking, so we drove after them and made up an excuse to talk to them. Turns out, it was the opening band (Tame Impala) and the bassist for MGMT. Still pretty cool!

Now, I know the blonde guy is the drummer for Tame Impala, and the Dark haired guy with a creepy sneer is the guitarist for Tame Impala, and I know the tall dude with the sunglasses is the bassist for MGMT. But who is the 4th guy in sunglasses with brown hair? Ben Goldwasser? I’m not sure, what do you guys think?
