Thank you NPR. Flying Lotus will go on around 11:35 ET..
For the first time, NPR Music and WNYC’s Soundcheck come together during the CMJ Music Marathon to present a showcase of singular artists. Los Angeles electronic composer Steven Ellison, a.k.a. Flying Lotus, headlines an October 17 concert on the heels of his new album, Until the Quiet Comes. He’s joined by the uncompromising noise-rap group Death Grips, playing its first New York City show since releasing a major-label debut back in April, and inventive duo Buke & Gase.
Ali Shaheed Muhammad, one-third of the legendary rap group A Tribe Called Quest and co-host of NPR Music’s Microphone Check, will do a set and DJ throughout the evening.
