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
Kong in which he sometimes went days without sleeping to play at sold
out club engagements.
San Francisco Bay Area native DJ Shadow worked on The
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.
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
DJ Shadow’s last several tour dates include tonight (October 11), when
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.
