Warp20 New York: Battles, Prefuse73, !!!
A monstrous concert is heading to NYC.
In celebration of Warp Records 20th Birthday, the label is bringing their big guns to NYC's Terminal 5 and putting on a monster of a show.
Headlining the date is the post-rock/big beat/face-melters "Battles". Embarrassingly, I've only been hip to these guys for the past couple months, but it's a live show that I've been salivating over since I heard the song B+T off of the "EP B/C EP" Record.
Supporting the main act is the avant-garde beat juggler Prefuse 73, !!!, and Pivot, along with Warp DJs filling in the gaps between sets.
There will also be a screening of some Warp Films, including some of the label's legendary music videos from the past 20 years.
Tickets go ON SALE TODAY, so don't miss out!
