With the latest trend of live shows trying to out do each other Flying Lotus goes dreamy and multi-layered with projections onto him for his project Layer 3:
new mini-documentary peeks behind the scenes of Flying Lotus’s new live audiovisual extravaganza, Layer 3 – which the Academy was proud to assist with developing in support of the Until The Quiet Comes tour. Made with the help of visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, the trio have devised a method of transporting FlyLo into outer dimensions using two transparent scrims and interactive front and rear projectors, conjuring nothing short of the acid-fried Space Odyssey “Stargate” scene.
Treasure Island Music Festival is this weekend in SF and we have a couple things to announce. First off, Tycho will be playing at 7PM on Saturday. There will also be an ISO50 / Tycho booth with prints, clothing, and music where we’ll be doing a meetup before and after the show. Scott, Jakub, Alex, and Jonathan will be at the booth from 4-5PM on Saturday and then after the Tycho set the whole band will be hanging out over there as well so drop by and say hello. Hope to see you out there!
Tonight is the final show of the Tycho tour! We’re ending off with a bang at the Doug Fir and Jakub will be joining us playing a set as Heathered Pearls. To celebrate we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the show. Just drop a comment here or on the Tycho Facebook Page answering the following question: What was the name of the first Tycho release?
IMPORTANT: Only enter if you live near Portland and intend to go to the show tonight. Thanks and good luck!
Headed west! Rolled out of Bozeman, MT today — halfway to Seattle for the Ghostly Showcase at Decibel Fest this Saturday (9/29/12) with Matthew Dear and Lusine at Showbox. Going to be a great night, we have a 10K projector lined up so the visuals should be especially intense for this one. See you in Seattle!
I’ve been waiting for a long time for this show and it’s finally here. Wedsnesday will be the first Tycho show in Boulder, CO and we’re all really excited. So excited that I created a poster specifically for the show. This also marks the first time I’ve designed a print from start to finish on the road (been out here for a few weeks now). The show will be with The Album Leaf at The Fox Theater this Wednesday, September 26th, 2012. Details and tickets here, hope to see you out!
We’re in the home stretch of our Fall Tour with only a handful of dates left. This will likely be the last full Tycho tour for a while as I plan to head back to the studio to work on new material. Thanks to everyone who’s made this past year so special, we’ve had an incredible time travelling around seeing so many wonderful people and places. Hope to see you all again soon!
Been a great run so far out here, heading in to the home stretch. We’re playing The Trocadero in Philadelphia with The Album Leaf this Saturday and have a couple of tickets up for grabs. Email aegphillycontests [at] aeglive.com with your first/last name and subject line TYCHO for a chance to win.
Just rolled in to Charlottesville for the show tonight at The Jefferson Theater, see you soon!
As you may know, I’m on the road right now for the Tycho Fall Tour with The Album Leaf. Really excited to announce that for the first time, we’ll be streaming a show live over the internet via Livestream. The show is tomorrow night in Nashville, TN at Exit/IN (tickets here) but you can watch live from anywhere starting at 10:30PM Eastern Time (03:30 GMT) via this Livestream page. It’s going to be a fun night, hope you can join us.
Heading in to Oxford, MS for the show at The Lyric tonight. Just want to say a big thanks to everyone who has come out and made this tour so much fun already. Still a bunch of dates to go, hope to see you out!
