Fall Tour Announcements: BassNectar, SBTRKT, Alex Grey & Up Until Now feat. Special Guests

Mark your calendars! Several events have recently been announced, and for two of them tickets go on sale this Friday.

Alex Grey & Up Until Now
Thursday, September 20th - Highline Ballroom
Tickets (available 9/13) - $25-$30

In a rare joint music and artistic collaboration Alex Grey will be collaborating with fellow psychedelic artists Mars-1, Oliver Vernon and Damon Soule to accompany Up Until Now featuring David 'Murph' Murphy of STS9, and Jon The Barber of the Disco Biscuits. I've personally had the pleasure of seeing Up Until Now perform with Murph at Camp Bisco X, and it was easily one of my favorite sets of the weekend. Here is a video of them performing together in the Good Life Village VIP at this year's Electric Forest Festival. 

Thursday, October 11th - Terminal 5
Tickets (available 7/27) - $32-$35

SBTRKT was one of last year's surprise acts. Donning a mask, the anonymous DJ revealed himself to London-based DJ Aaron Paul. Now SBTRKT performs live with singer and fellow producer Sampha. I managed to see them perform last year at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, and their rich, vibrant sound left me hungry for more. It will be interesting to see what they've come up with over the past year. Here is a video of SBTRKT featuring Sampha performing their song "Trials of the Past" live at Abbey Road.

Friday, November 16th - The Wellmont Theatre (feat. Gramatik & Gladkill)
Tickets (available 7/27) - $40-$45
Saturday-Sunday, November 17th-18th - Terminal 5 (feat. GRiZ & Gladkill)
Tickets (available 7/27) - $40-$45

It seems that Lorin Ashton, aka BassNectar is incapable of slowing down. After a successful album launch with Vava Voom, a hectic summer festival schedule which will soon be taking him to Europe, he's just announced his Fall 2012 North American Tour. Supporting him on this ambitious ride will be Gramatik, GRiZ and Gladkill. The tour still has a few "surprise dates," but will be finishing up in the New York area with 1 show in Montclair, NJ at the Wellmont Theatre, and 2 back to back nights at Terminal 5 in NYC.
