STANDING ON THE CORNER
Genre-defying NYC ensemble Standing on the Corner announced a Brooklyn show at Elsewhere Zone One on September 16 (tickets). It's their only upcoming live date at the moment.
Hinds were scheduled to support Future Islands on some of their US tour dates in September, but they've been forced to cancel. "We are not making it to the USA for the September tour with Future Islands," they write. "US government is not giving visas in the embassy in Spain so we just can't fly and work there. We are gonna keep trying as hard as we're doing now to make October festivals and shows happen. Don't know what else to say, our mood is on the floor and all our plans are falling apart. Hope you had a better summer than us. See you soon (?)
AKAI SOLO (with NAVY BLUE & more)
Brooklyn rappers AKAI SOLO and Navy Blue, who released the great collaborative album True Sky, earlier this year, will share a hometown bill at Elsewhere on September 13, with Theravada and Poetic Thrust on the bill as well. AKAI SOLO also has a couple West Coast shows coming up: one opening for Armand Hammer in Santa Ana on 9/18 alongside The Alchemist and Open Mike Eagle, and one opening for Chester Watson in Oakland on 9/23 alongside Ovrkast.
Empty Country, the project of Cymbals Eat Guitars frontman Joe D'Agostino, rescheduled his planned release show for his self-titled 2020 debut. It now happens on January 21, 2022 at Knitting Factory, with Charles Bissell of The Wrens and Field Mouse (tickets). That's Empty Country's only upcoming show at the moment.
WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS
We Were Promised Jetpacks postponed the fall leg of their upcoming tour to 2022 due to COVID. "We were hoping to celebrate a joyous return to the stage with you all sooner rather than later," they write, "but the uncertainty around international travel and the ever changing COVID-19 situation means it’s just not possible."
