Little Dragon at MHOW in January (more by Brook Bobbins)
Little Dragon

If you won't be able to make it out to Philly this Saturday (6/4) for The Roots Picnic, you're in luck because starting at 1PM a live webcast from the main stage will be streaming on Okayplayer (the website owned by The Roots) and XPN. The webcast will be hosted by Warren and XPN DJ Mike Vasilikos. Philly's DJ Afrodjiak will chat with artists throughout the day. Performances to be webcast include Little Dragon, The Dismemberment Plan, Ariel Pink, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Esperanza Spalding with The Roots, Wiz Khalifa, and Nas with The Roots. You can also catch videos of the performances at XPN and Philadelphia Music Magazine after the event.

Ariel Pink played Irving last night (6/2) and also plays a not-secret-anymore show at Santos tonight (6/3). Get tickets for the show now from Other Music.

The Roots Picnic is only one of a bunch of festival appearances Little Dragon will be making this summer (and fall). The band also plays Outside Lands, MusicfestNW, Moogfest, and a few others overseas. Their upcoming album Ritual Union now has a release date of July 12 via Peacefrog Records. Check out the track "Nightlight" and the artwork and tracklist below. Little Dragon also recently contributed to the song "Wildfire" off the UK producer SBTRKT's upcoming self-titled debut.
