Jamie Lidell Announced as Part of New York's Warp 20 Celebration!!

I haven't posted about Warp's 20th Anniversary celebration in New York because I wasn't excited about the line-up until I read this, this morning (via Jamie Lidell's Myspace blog):

Hello Folks,

The little elves here in web-land would like to announce that Jamie will be appearing at the Poisson Rouge in NYC on September the 5th as part of the Warp20 celebrations. I know what you are saying, "but I saw the flyer and there's no mention of that..." Yes, well it's breaking news. You heard it here first.
More info on the line-up is on Le Poisson Rouge's website. Tickets are already on sale. Info on the rest of the Warp 20 events on the flyer below:

There is also more extensive info over on BrooklynVegan.

Royksopp to Play Webster Hall November 23 & 24th

Norway's Royksopp are playing Webster Hall on November 23 and November 24. Pre-sale is tomorrow (8/19) at noon (don't know the password), regular sale is Friday (8/21) at noon.

The last time I saw Royksopp happened to be at Webster Hall, back in 2005...and I wasn't as into it as usual (though they were still good) because I had seen the Chemical Brothers just a couple of weeks before. But! the first time I saw them was at Irving Plaza in the spring of 2003 and it was awesome. There was a guy dressed up as Leno from Poor Leno...who came out and danced in the middle of the crowd when they played that song. Ah...memories! Don't miss them at Webster...and check out the video of the classic, Poor Leno, below:

A mirror ball shining bright in a provincial disco on a Tuesday night

Back in May I only managed to catch about 45 minutes of Pilooski's dj set at Mister Saturday Night, thanks to my un-wise decision to see Moderat at Music Hall of Williamsburg (which started way behind schedule). However, in just those brief 45 minutes I was absolutely floored by Pilooski's set - great selections and he absolutely tore it up in terms of mixing & manipulation (check out the video below).

Tonight he is deejaying Scion's free monthly at Plan B (21+, 11pm - 4am) along with In Flagranti (NSFW), Bullion, Cosmo Baker, and Blue Jemz.

If you aren't familiar with Pilooski I highly recommend checking out this post at Tracasseur (an excellent music blog, based out of Stockholm) which has a nice little round-up of some great Pilooski edits you can download. You can also grab a fairly new remix of Jarvis Cocker's "You're In My Eyes" (Discosong) over at BrooklynVegan, and a recording of Pilooski's set at Mister Saturday Night over on Eamon Harkin's blog.

If you're in New York tonight - DO NOT miss his set!
