BASS: DJ Shadow to close out ‘The Outsider’ U.S. tour in NYC

Nearing an end to a long tour across the U.S. in support of his new album The Outsider (Universal), DJ Shadow will close out nearly a month straight on the road at New York City club Webster Hall on October 17, tour organizers announced. DJ Shadow’s domestic tour comes after a recent globe-spanning series of dates from the U.K. to Hong Kong in which he sometimes went days without sleeping to play at sold out club engagements.

DJ ShadowSan Francisco Bay Area native DJ Shadow worked on The Outsider for nearly three years, a time when his club shows became more complicated as he often worked in live instruments, additional turntables and electronic media. His latest studio album includes tracks like Artifact, which Shadow salvaged from an abandoned solo LP by former Rage Against The Machine front man Zack De La Rocha.

Seein’ Thangs features Mississippi’s David Banner in an emotionally charged track recorded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Later in the album, Enuff gives Q-Tip a turn on the mic, and Dat’s My Part has a fellow Bay Area performer: the rapper E-40.

The Outsider is DJ Shadow’s third full-length studio record, and comes after electronic classics Entroducing (1996) and The Private Press (2002). The new live shows juxtapose new favorites with staples from previous tours.

DJ Shadow’s last several tour dates include tonight (October 11), when he plays the House of Blues in Cleveland; Oct. 12 in Toronto; Oct. 13 in Montreal; at TLA in Philadelphia on October 16; and his tour ends October 17 at Webster Hall, located at 125 East 11th Street, in New York City.
