    Nice words about last night’s show with The Cab, The Summer Set at The Beacham.

    Concert Review: The Cab & The Summer Set at The Beacham

    Entertainment, Music, News — By on January 21, 2012 at 9:59 am

    As the Everything’s Fine Symphony Soldier tour made its way through Orlando on it’s 9th stop of the tour, I could feel the energy building in The Beacham venue. The Orlando stop was originally scheduled to be at The Social, but sold out that venue and was moved to The Beacham. The five-band tour includes headliners The Cab and The Summer Set, as well as He Is We, Days Difference, and Paradise Fears.

    Days Difference at The Beacham in Orlando, Florida on January 20, 2012 (Ian Roth/KnightNews.com)

    The opening acts (Paradise Fears, Days Difference, and He Is We) immediately felt the love of the crowd. The energy and applause grew louder with every song from every band. Out of the three bands that kicked off the show, He Is We stuck out the most to me. He Is We, an indie pop band signed to Universal Motown Records, had a large crowd show for their performance and seemingly every person in the venue knew the words to their songs. The high-energy guitarists and smooth vocals of Rachel Taylor really made this band stick out. Towards the end of their set, Brian Dales, the lead singer of The Summer Set, joined the band to perform a song along side Taylor.

    The opening acts were through and it was on to the headliners. The Summer Set came to the stage with a very fast-paced set, filled with great music. The band played the majority of the songs off their new album Everything’s Fine. Following The Summer Set was The Cab, and the building was packed. When lead singer Alexander DeLeon walked onto the stage, fans erupted with excitement. The Cab opened up with “Angel With A Shotgun” which is the first song on their newest album Symphony Soldier, released in August of last year. Mid way through their performance, the band left the stage, except for DeLeon and keyboard/guitarist/vocalist Alex Marshall, and the duo played a short acoustic set including their popular song off their first album Whisper War, titled “Vegas Skies”. When all was said and done, the band made sure they stuck around after their performance to say hi to all of their fans and show their appreciation for the support.

    Overall, every band had a fantastic performance, and I thoroughly enjoyed covering this event. Everybody be sure to check out all of these great bands, and tell your friends about the Everything’s Fine Symphony Soldier Tour.

    OUT TODAY

    NEW VIDEO FOR “MIDNIGHT CITY” OUT NOW

    ACTIVE CHILD TO SUPPORT M83 ON N.AMERICAN TOUR DATES

    “Some of the most thrilling pop music released this year.” 9.1, Best New MusicPITCHFORK

    “When it’s not luring you to the dancefloor with thrilling 1980’s pop, M83’s widescreen music sounds like a lost John Hughes movie.”– ROLLING STONE

    “That pervasive dedication to heart-swelling drama is M83′s gift: No one is better, or more single-minded, when it comes to evoking dream-pop awe.” – SPIN

    “An admirable paean to fuzzy memories, nostalgia, melancholic rumination and pop experimentation, imploring the listener to become the stories and places that populate dreams. 92%  – FILTER

    M83’s epic new double album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is out today (Oct. 18th) and if you haven’t heard you can listen to the full album at Urban Outfitters by visiting http://www.blog.urbanoutfitters.com/features/m83#. Fans can also pickup an exclusive colored vinyl of the album at all Urban Outfitters retail stores.

    Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is already being touted as one of this year’s best records by music critics.  With 9.1 rating and ‘Best New Music’ distinction, Pitchfork calls Hurry Up, “some of the most thrilling pop music released this year”, adding, “it’s the best M83 record yet.” Under The Radar calls it, “A remarkable accomplishment”, giving the album 9/10 stars, and XLR8R says, “It’s a fantastical story of aliens, spirits, and children told by one breathtakingly gifted artist, and it’s utterly remarkable. 9.5/10.”

    M83 has released an official video for “Midnight City”, the first single from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming.  The video, directed by Fleur & Manu and produced by DIVISION, follows a pack of gifted kids with telepathic and telekinetic powers who break free from an institution to be free and run wild on the outskirts of Los Angeles.  Visit M83’s official YouTube page to watch the video – http://youtu.be/dX3k_QDnzHE

    M83 is excited to announce that Active Child will support the band throughout the fall US tour dates which start in Washington D.C on October 28th.  Expected to be a sold out tour, the fall dates will be M83’s first live shows in over two years.  M83 last toured in support of the widely adored Saturdays=Youth, which saw the band on the road with The Killers in the US, Kings of Leon in the UK, and Depeche Mode in Europe. Check below for a full list of dates or visit www.ilovem83.com

    Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine), Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby,and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.  “I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself”, says Gonzalez.

    Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics’ favorite Saturdays=YouthPitchfork called it, “An unaccountably alive, complete album”, giving it an 8.5 rating while, The New York Times, said “The music recalls the pumping beats and keyboard hooks of the 1980’s as if through a haze of time, floating in lush echoes that round off the edges.”

    M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.

    Friendly Fires at the Social

    By Samir Mathur

    FRIENDLY FIRES and THEOPHILUS LONDON play The Social on Saturday, October 8th.

    It’s not a surprise that my favourite album of 2011 thus far is by a group of skinny white dudes from the suburbs of North London. That is pretty much a cert, any given year. But what IS unusual is that these skinny white dudes have made an incredibly danceable, lush, tropical sounding album. That is not a sound that you’d expect from looking at them. The album is ‘Pala’, by St. Albans’ Friendly Fires, and it’s a monster. NME called it “the perfect pool party soundtrack” and that sounds about right. I’m planning on dancing at this thing like a maniac. Highly recommend that you do the same.

    Opening is Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London, whose recent debut album ‘Timez are Weird These Days’ was pretty good. He deserves props, if nothing else, for having a chorus that goes “Last name London, first name Theophilus.” Should make for an interesting contrast with Friendly Fires.

    Theophilus-London-Announces-Tours-with-Big-Boi-Friendly-Fires-20010101Theophilus London has announced a tour in support of his much-hyped full-length debut Timez Are Weird These Days, which is out now (click to buy on iTunes and Amazon.) The tour kicks off August 11th with a SummerStage show in Central Park with Nas and Damien Marley, and also includes a string of dates with Big Boi, an appearance at Austin City Limits, and a 3-week tour with Friendly Fires. A full list of tour dates is below.

    On August 20th in Austin, TX, Theophilus London will play the inaugural performance of the Special Engagements Concert Series, presented by Intel and Dell, which is a new live concert series debuting on Noisey.com. The monthly series is grounded in a technology-driven audience experience, which gives fans the power to collaborate with the performing artist before and during the show. Together, they will produce a once-in-a-lifetime event that is streamed live across the world. The series kicks off August 20 in Austin, Texas at the famed Lustre Pearl with Brooklyn-based sensation Theophilus London and host Telli from Ninjasonik. For this first Engagement, fans will determine which exclusive remix Theophilus London debuts during his set, send in visual interpretations of his album to accompany the performance, submit shout-outs and even decide the shirt he wears on stage. Leading up to the debut event in Austin, they will determine factors of the performance via polling widgets, Twitter and Facebook. Fans can watch Theophilus London’s video announcement and learn how to attend and call the shots by visiting http://noisey.com/specialengagements.

    Timez Are Weird These Days is Theophilus London’s full-length debut. Critical praise has been pouring in from publications across the spectrum, including features in Interview Magazine, Details, XXL, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and video and song premieres on Mashable, Wired.com and NY Magazine’s Vulture blog. He has performed on the Late Show with David Letterman (w/Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara) and Jimmy Kimmel Live! Theophilus will perform on the season premiere of 90210 on September 13th.

    “Timez Are Weird These Days feels like a welcome cool breeze in sweltering mid summer.”

    “At Central Park Summerstage, 10,000% humidity. So damp. Band (UK’s Friendly Fires) is dripping like undersea creatures.” – Moishe Friedman

    Friendly Fires

    Friendly Fires headlined a free and at-capcity Central Park Summerstage show yesterday (8/7) with Cults and The Naked and Famous. Friendly Fires played a pretty even mix of material from their debut and its recently released followup Pala (full setlist below). Cults, who will probably be able to headline their own Summerstage show next summer, opened the show two days after they played Lollapalooza.

    The Naked and Famous, who are already headlining Webster Hall on October 27 with The Chain Gang of 1974 and White Arrows, and playing a sold out MHOW show on 8/12 with Winter Gloves, just added an 8/13 Brooklyn Bowl show with a Yeasayer DJ set. Tickets are on sale now if you’re into that kind of thing. All dates are listed below.

    M83

    FIRST SINGLE – “MIDNIGHT CITY” – OUT AUGUST 16TH
    DOWNLOAD FREE ON ILOVEM83.COM UNTIL AUGUST 14TH

    NEW DATES ADDED TO FALL TOUR

    NEW DOUBLE ALBUM – HURRY UP, WE’RE DREAMING – OUT OCT. 18TH

    M83’s new track “Midnight City” will be released on August 16th as the first official single from the upcoming new album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, out October 18th.  “Midnight City” will be available as a free download on the official M83 website ilovem83.com until August 14th. Unlike anything we have heard from M83 in the past, “Midnight City” has excited fans and critics alike, receiving an overwhelmingly positive outpour of enthusiasm and anticipation for more. Rolling Stone calls it “Gorgeous and highly danceable” and Pitchfork says it’s “The fine-tuning of a master craftsman only challenged by himself”, labeling it ‘best new music’.

    M83 has added two shows to the fall tour, including a late show at Lincoln Hall in Chicago on Nov. 17th and a Brooklyn show at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg on November 23. Due to demand, the San Francisco show will move to Mezzanine, opening more tickets to the public. The tour kicks off in Washington D.C. in the US on October 28th for dates throughout the US and Canada, including a headline performance at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX alongside Lykke Li, Passion Pit, and Odd Future (full list of dates below).  Several shows on the upcoming tour are currently sold out including the opening night in Washington D.C., Raleigh, and the early show in Chicago. The fall tour dates will be M83’s first live shows in over two years.  M83 last toured in support of the widely adored Saturdays=Youth, which saw the band on the road with The Killers in the US, Kings of Leon in the UK, and Depeche Mode in Europe.  Tickets are on sale now.

    Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp), mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, The Kooks), and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine) on guitar, Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby,and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.  “I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself”, says Gonzalez.

    Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics’ favorite Saturdays=YouthPitchfork called it, “An unaccountably alive, complete album”, giving it an 8.5 rating while, The New York Times, said “The music recalls the pumping beats and keyboard hooks of the 1980’s as if through a haze of time, floating in lush echoes that round off the edges.”

    M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.

    Odd Future will play the Beacham Theater on November 3rd

    Odd Future – or Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, if you’re not into brevity – are, by far, the most-talked about new band of 2011. I think I’ve only heard three of their songs, but I still feel like I know a whole lot about them. Let’s see: L.A. based gang of teenagers, all of whom do their own thing as well as perform with the group; not fans of Bruno Mars; one guy was sent to a juvenile facility in Samoa against his will; the main dude is called Tyler the Creator and he recently broke his leg; oh, and there’s some business about their lyrics being completely homophobic and sexist. Read this article about how GLAAD has spoken out against the band. Apparently you have to either love them or despise them: there is no middle way.

    Anyway, they just announced a tour this morning, and it involves a stop in Orlando on November 3rd. It certainly promises to be interesting, as their live shows have a reputation for insanity. Oh, you don’t believe me? Check out the video above. That was just in a TV studio. It’s scary to think about what they’ll do to downtown’s newest venue.

    NORTH AMERICAN FALL TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
    M83 announces details today for what has become one of this autumn’s most anticipated releases.  M83 (aka Anthony Gonzalez) will release his epic new double album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming on October 18, 2011.

    Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, NIN, The Mars Volta, Goldfrapp) and including contributions from Brad Laner (from 90’s band Medicine) on guitar, Saturdays=Youth vocalist Morgan Kibby,and guest vocalist Zola Jesus, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is a double-album journey that takes us to the horizon and introduces us to new landscapes. About awakening, craving, and conquering, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming pushes into new vocal territory for M83. Here we see Gonzalez test out different ways of singing, ranging from a spectral breathy whisper to a howling scream.  “I think it is a reflection of my 30 years of being a human being. It’s a compilation of all my previous music together. It’s a retrospective of myself”, says Gonzalez.

    M83 fans have the opportunity to hear and download the first single, “Midnight City”, starting today. The humid, adrenaline-driven dreamlike track is unlike anything we have heard from M83 in the past. “Midnight City” adeptly sweeps you through abandoned concrete streets swimming in broken neon light. To download the track visit M83’s official website ilovem83.com/midnight-city or stop by the M83 SoundCloud page to stream it.

    M83 will begin a North American Fall tour in October starting in Mexico City on October 15th at the Corona Capital Festival.  The tour picks up in Washington D.C. on October 28th for twenty dates throughout the US and Canada (full list of dates below). The fall tour dates will be M83’s first live shows in over two years.  M83 last toured in support of the widely adored Saturdays=Youth, which saw the band on the road with The Killers in the US, Kings of Leon in the UK, and Depeche Mode in Europe.  Tickets are on sale now.

    Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming is the follow up to the John Hughes inspired and critics’ favorite Saturdays=YouthPitchfork called it, “An unaccountably alive, complete album”, giving it an 8.5 rating while, The New York Times, said “The music recalls the pumping beats and keyboard hooks of the 1980’s as if through a haze of time, floating in lush echoes that round off the edges.”

    M83 is Los Angeles based French artist Anthony Gonzalez.
