So little wait time remains for the Mar. 24 release of Benny Sings’ new album Young Hearts, but today’s latest single “Pyjamas” — a breezily agoraphobic duet with LA’s Remi Wolf — has us x-ing off our calendars in anticipation of of the full LP. Also highly anticipation worthy are the slate of “Local-chella” shows being announced. One of the big ones finds Ms. Wolf herself teaming with Lava LaRue for a show at Pomona’s Fox Theater on Thursday, April 14. Another absolute must is the dream team of Hiatus Kaiyote live with El Michels Affair on the DJ decks at the Novo Theater on Monday April 19.
And since we’re on the topic of live shows, why not put yourself in the running to check out Malian singer-songwriter Fatoumata Diawara at the Miracle Theater on Monday, April 19? The artist, perhaps best known for her collaborations with Disclosure, is sure to put on one hell of a show.
