GABI (with JULIANNA BARWICK, then with MUTUAL BENEFIT)
Ambient pop artist GABI is releasing her new album Empty Me on October 5 via Double Double Whammy.

GABI is playing a release show at Brooklyn's Park Church Co-Op on 10/3 with very strong support from likeminded artists Julianna Barwick and Foxes In Fiction, and then she's opening Mutual Benefit's tour, including the 12/8 show at that same Brookyn venue. All dates with MB here. Julianna Barwick is also opening part of Angel Olsen's solo tour.
THE SUFFERS (OPENING FOR THIEVERY CORPORATION & MORE)
Houston, TX's The Suffers pull from classic soul and just released new album, Everything Here. The eight-piece band have some TX shows and dates in the South this summer, and will head out on a full North American tour starting in early November, including dates opening for Thievery Corporation and a headlining show at Brooklyn's Rough Trade. All dates and tickets are here.
CHANCE THE RAPPER
Chance the Rapper has just a few upcoming shows, including the next Spotify "RapCaviar Live" show in NYC with Sheck Wes and Tierra Whack.
Drummer, producer and activist Madame Gandhi released a new song, "Top Knot Turn Up", in July, and she told Vogue that she's preparing to release her debut full length album in the fall. While she hasn't shared more details of the album yet, she has announced a few tour dates, including a 9/13 show at Brooklyn's National Sawdust (tickets). See all of her upcoming dates here.
Warm Drag is the duo of Paul Quattrone, who is currently one of Oh Sees’ two drummers, and former K Holes/Golden Triangle vocalist Vashti Windish. Paul creates noise and beats via samplers and guitars, while Vashti wails/coos over top. Together they’re a cinematic, freak-beat, kraut-rockin’ psych-out that refuses to be pigeonholed. Their debut album is out August 31 and will be touring in September, including stops in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Chicago. Head here for all dates.
Indie vets Low, whose forthcoming Double Negative is one of our most anticipated albums of the fall, have expanded their upcoming tour...which now kicks off with three nights at Brooklyn's National Sawdust.
