With his new record released this week, Oct 2, Flying Lotus is ready to announce a month-long series of events in New York and Los Angeles during October. Throughout the month, Flying Lotus will play headlining shows, in-stores, record signings, radio takeovers, showcases, Q&As and much more. All of these live events — billed with the #UntilTheQuietComes hashtag— come in conjunction with the release of Until the Quiet Comes, Flying Lotus’ new album out on WARP now. Featuring guest appearances by Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat & Thom Yorke, the album is FlyLo’s highly anticipated follow-up to 2010’s Cosmogramma. Fans can currently stream the album in its entirety at NPR Music.
For those in LA who missed the stunning Hollywood Bowl performance, FlyLo will be capping the month off in LA at Club Nokia on 10/26.
On Oct. 6th, Flying Lotus will attend a record signing at The Brooklyn Flea’s Fifth Annual Record Fair at the Smorgasburg food market. This event will be followed by Flying Lotus’ headlining performance at Terminal 5 on Oct. 7th. The official kickoff of his world tour, Flying Lotus’ Terminal 5 show will be his biggest headlining gig to date and will feature Thundercat in addition to other Brainfeeder artists. On Oct. 8th, FlyLo will perform a live set as a part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Boiler Room NYC Takeover (http://boilerroom.tv). The artist’s second Boiler Room set of the month, the performance will find FlyLo sharing the stage with ?uestlove, Just Blaze, Joey Badass & Pro Era, and The Underachievers. On Oct. 9 th Flying Lotus will hold a very special in-store and Q&A at the Apple Store, SoHo. Part of Apple’s “Meet the Musician” series, the appearance will feature Flying Lotus and a moderated talk with Mike Rubin (NY Times/SPIN/Rolling Stone) about FlyLo’s music, an audience Q&A, and a short performance at the store.
And on Oct. 10th, Brainfeeder, Flying Lotus’ record label, will take over East Village Radio with a two-hour live stream of sets from The Gaslamp Killer, Martyn, Dorian Concept, Jeremiah Jae, Taylor McFerrin, The Underachievers, and special guest Flying Lotus (www.eastvillageradio.com).
