Kendrick Lamar at Terminal 5 in 2012 (more by Julie Schabel)
Kendrick Lamar

As mentioned, Kendrick Lamar has some tour dates scheduled this year, including NYC festival Governors Ball in June, and a club date in NYC happening much sooner on February 26 at Roseland Ballroom (which Governors Ball is one of the presenters for). That show sold out but Kendrick also just added an early show happening at the same venue that night (6 PM). Tickets for the newly added show go on sale Thursday (2/14) at noon with an "Internet Presale" starting Wednesday (2/13) at 10 AM. Not sure what the password is, but the one for the late show was "dazzle."

Kendrick's tour dates still don't include it, and SXSW's website offers no confirmation, but word on the street is that there's a really good chance Kendrick Lamar will be filling shows at SXSW in Austin in March.
