Autolux: The Science of Imaginary Solutions + The Afghan Whigs/Frank Ocean: Lovecrimes



Autolux and The Afghan Whigs will both be part of the eclectic line up at the September 21-23 All Tomorrows Parties 'I'll Be Your Mirror' festival, co-curated by The Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli.  This annual NYC event will include a performance on Friday, September 21 by headliner Frank Ocean whose "Lovecrimes", off his 2010 debut mixtape 'Nostalgia, Ultra', was recently covered by The Afghan Whigs.

A connection to my previous post on The Raveonettes:  Sharin Foo is married to guitarist/vocalist Greg Edwards of L.A. based trio Autolux; the couple's daughter Molly was born in 2008. 

Autolux' most recent album 'Transit Transit" was released in 2010; the very trippy video for "The Science of Imaginary Solutions" was not uploaded to YouTube until in February of this year. 

Prior to their Sunday, September 23 festival gig in NYC, they have a show at The Bootleg Theater in L.A. on September 19.

Recently reunited after a 13-year hiatus, The Afghan Whigs will be following their Saturday September 22 NYC gig with an extensive U.S. fall tour; several of the shows have already sold out.

Frank Ocean will be the musical guest on the September 15 season premiere of Saturday Night Live hosted by Seth MacFarlane.
