Hey, New York! On February 22nd, Jamie XX will be DJing live at Le Poisson Rouge to celebrate the release of his album We're New Here, a reworking of Gil Scott-Heron's I'm New Here. We're pretty taken with the album—read our magazine feature on Jamie and check out a bunch of his music and mixes, too—and are sponsoring the event. Tickets are on sale now, five bucks ahead of time and ten at the door. Sepalcure and Creep are playing too. We have seen Jamie DJ before, playing everything from his own unreleased tracks to Odd Future to UK garage songs that came out when he was four. This will be great, see you there.
