The Internet: Girl

For my lucky readers in the Bay Area: L.A. band The Internet will be performing at 9 pm Friday August 7 at the three-day Jazz Summer Fest in downtown San Jose.  

This year's festival lineup also includes acclaimed saxophonist Kamasi Washington (playing with his two projects The Next Step (Sunday at noon) and The West Coast Get Down (Sunday 9 pm), local duo Astralogik (Sunday 2 pm) and last but not least, there will be a DJ set by Ali Shaheed Mohammad of A Tribe Called Quest (Saturday 10:30 pm).

The Internet released their third full-length 'Ego Death' June 26 ; a decidedly low-budget but nonetheless effective video for the outstanding song "Girl" was published three days earlier.  The track features 22-year-old Haitian-Canadian musician-producer-DJ Kaytranada.

NOTE: The band's Facebook page lists a show not mentioned on Songkick: the gig is scheduled for September 12 at Aaron's Amphitheatre in Atlanta; the lineup includes The Roots, Janelle Monae, Lauryn Hill, Wale, SZA and more.
