POWERS are no strangers to island-in-the-sun pop classics, and today Mike and Crista return with yet another solar-powered space heater on brand new single “Sunshine”. Like Miike Snow getting pitch-shifted into tropical oblivion, it’s got feel good hit of the summer written all over it and serves up the perfect prelude to the duo’s Popshop West headline with Tigertown next month, tix still available HERE.
We’ve got a full deck of Popshop West aces already up our sleeve this summer with POWERS and Tigertown coming in hot July 12th and Great Good Fine Ok on deck for July 29th, and we’re keeping the flames stoked through August with our latest PSW heater arriving August 10th. Featuring Transviolet topping the marquee in their LA headline debut and special guest supports announcing in the weeks to come, you’re gonna want to go ahead and mark your calendars and cop your advance tickets HERE stat.
After years touring with Jack Antonoff and Bleachers, New York-via-New Orleans psych-soul upstart Mikey Freedom strikes out on his own as Ex Reyes with debut single “Bad Timing”. Swirling together like a homegrown acid trip into the great beyond, it feels a little bit Tame Impala, a little bit Jungle, and everything in between; nostalgic and familiar but entirely modern, the perfect soundtrack to the halcyon daze of early summer. Catch Ex Reyes lighting up a two week residency at Elvis Guesthouse the last two Wednesdays of July.
Summer’s in full swing and we’re feeling the burn. Coming in even hotter still are our dudes POP ETC, still riding high on the back of their sophomore album earlier this year, as they get set to headline the August edition of our Baby’s All Right Popshop outpost. Special guest supports announcing in the weeks to come, but for now mark your calendar and get your tix for August 12th HERE.
Tigertown‘s “Lonely Cities” is one of 2016’s most picture perfect anthems, and today its first proper remix arrives courtesy of fellow Sydney heatseeker, Wishes. The Down Under up and comer – whose own smoldering debut is one of Australia’s finest of the year – takes the original and dresses it up in all manner of swirling, affecting electronics, as he turns the laid bare emotion of the original up to 11 and drives the chorus straight through your heartstrings. Tigertown return to the states next month for Stars + Stripes plus Popshop plays in NYC and LA, tickets available here.
We’ve been all over Beginners since the very beginning. Today, the LA outfit return with a brand new one called “Gangsters or Lovers”, a white-hot scorcher that sizzles on the blacktop burning bright with desire. Feel the heat below and keep an eye out for their brand new Pleaser EP dropping September 16th.
Swede dream Marlene recently brought her Scandinavian pop majesty to the Popshop stage for the first time, and continues her triumphant return this week with brand new single “All I Want”. All shimmering confetti synths and heart-bursting melodies, it’s a blissed-out summertime serenade that marks a welcome return for one of Sweden’s hottest tips.
Now this a STATEMENT. In a stunning first look, WILLS comes through to fuck your whole summer up with one of the year’s biggest debuts. Like Kanye and TV On The Radio teaming up to score a David Fincher thriller, “Woes vs Whoas” is bombastic, eviscerating and completely unhinged in the best way possible.
Five years we’ve been doing this little party called Popshop, from its humble LES roots at Tammany Hall in 2011, on to Santos Party House and Westway and, most recently, across the bridge to our current home at Baby’s All Right. And to mark the occasion we’ve put together a very special lineup of Neon Gold all stars past, present and future, as we welcome Foxes back to the Neon Gold stage in a special underplay around her stadium dates supporting Coldplay. Joining her will be our Neon Gold superstars of tomorrow, Tigertown, plus many more special guests to be announced soon. It’s all going down July 18th at Baby’s All Right, with $15 tickets now available HERE.
Summer is here and with it arrives another installment of Stars + Stripes, as we celebrate SIX YEARS of our annual charity festival on Martha’s Vineyard. This year’s a particularly special one, as the fest will mark the last show ever at the historic venue (originally founded as the Hot Tin Roof by Carly Simon in the 1970’s), before it shutters it’s doors for good later this summer.
Topping the bill are Boston’s Magic Man – who’s own Sam Lee was raised on island – and our beloved Tigertown, who make their triumphant return to the States all the way from Down Under, plus LA heatseekers XYLØ and local favorites Crooked Coast getting things started early. As usual, it’s all going down for a very good cause, with 100% of proceeds going to the Martha’s Vineyard YMCA. Mark your calendars for July 2nd at Flatbread Company and cop your $30 advance tickets right HERE. Let the fireworks begin.
