Jon Hopkins

As mentioned, the UK electronic musician and producer Jon Hopkins opened for the xx last night at Bowery Ballroom. He does the same at their upcoming shows in DC, NC, and GA before playing a couple of dates with Roksopp in CA. Two nights ago he played that free show at Le Poisson Rouge with Prefuse 73 and Mixhell. Tonight (11/12) there is one more NYC chance to see him at Mercury Lounge when he opens for The Asteroids Galaxy Tour who are also visiting from overseas and who also play more than one NYC show while they're here. If you miss tonight, you can catch them at the Tribeca Grand Hotel on Saturday (free with RSVP). All dates and some videos below...
