James Blake at Coachella 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
As mentioned, James Blake is currently on our side of the Atlantic for a North American tour which hits Terminal 5 for headlining shows on Tuesday (5/7) and Thursday (5/9), and a DJ set at the Museum of Natural History (5/10) afterwards. All three shows are with FaltyDL. The May 9 show is sold out but tickets for the May 7 show are still available and we're also giving away a pair to that one. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Those Terminal 5 shows happen right after Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and Ultraista play the same venue (5/5 & 5/6), and we're giving away tickets to those shows too. Today (5/3) is the last chance to enter for the FlyLo contest.
James Blake's excellent new album, Overgrown is out now, and he recently recorded a KCRW session for its single, "Retrograde, which came out earlier this week. You can watch that video, along with contest details and his updated tour schedule, below...
