Week in Pop: Apollo Brown & OC, Indian Wells, XV

Post Author:

This week we learned that Kanye wants to build theme parks, then Kim Kardashian 'leaked' some side boob, and Trash Talk is aligning vibes with the OFWGKTA dudes with their signing to Odd Future Records. Here are many other moments from your week in pop singles, in no particular order.

For our East Bay readers, we got two tickets to Sophia Knapp's show at The New Parish in Oakland for Sunday, June 10 to the 5th person who e-mails me the name of Sophia's new solo album out now Drag City. Send away.

Also look out for Delicate Steve performing public listening installation/scavenger hunt going on this weekend in NYC via locations disclosed on Steve's website. Scattered around 10 spots in Brooklyn and Manhattan are playbutton devices that house any one of the ten songs from D. Steve's Positive Force. Amid all the button hunting there will also be a 'Delicate Cheese' grilled cheese sandwiches out of the NYPD Van converted into a food truck. Tonight, June you can catch Delicate Steve at Terminal 5 with tUne-yArds before he takes off with Yeasayer for a summer tour.

NYC also rejoice because Vans House Parties just anounced a most triumphant return to restore summer vibes with The House of Vans posting up shop at 25 Franklin St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for the second year with performances slated from The Rapture, Tanlines bros, Dave P and more on June 20. More artists TBA for further shows on July 12, July 26, August 2, August 16 and August 29. Be there.
