Little Dragon at MHOW in 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Little Dragon

As mentioned, Little Dragon will be playing some dates in the US and Canada this August, including HARD Festival, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and a free Celebrate Brooklyn show at Prospect Park on August 10 with Frankie Rose. After that show, they'll stick around Brooklyn to DJ Glasslands that same night (8/10). Admission is $10 with RSVP to If you're in Chicago, maybe you caught them DJing the bvChicago-presented show at Lincoln Hall this past May, which took place the same night they opened for Red Hot Chili Peppers there.

The band just debuted their new single, "Sunshine," in an Absolut ad, which aired during an episode of The Daily Show last Wednesday (6/27). Since then, they've made a video for the track and put it up on iTunes. You can check out the video for the track and the Absolut ad that it plays in below, along with an updated list of dates.
