Take a peek at this beautiful panoramic photograph of my South Philly workspace, as shot by Amanda Cerini. The cozy 3rd floor digs looks out onto Philadelphia’s Italian Market neighborhood, and has pretty much everything I need to get by.

Although I’m primarily in the studio working on the new Lushlife EP (more on that soon), I’ve got some awesome spot dates and festivals coming up. While I’m in the midwest shooting a music video next week, you can catch a live Lushlife set in Oklahoma City, and I’ll also be doing a free outdoor college show in Madison, WI. In early October, I’ll be at Atlanta’s A3C Festival, playing alongside dudes like 9th Wonder, GZA, Killer Mike, and more.
As always, dates and links to buy tickets can be found at: www.theyoungandinlove.com/shows/
Last year, I did a crazy one-month tour in Europe before I was even finished with Plateau Vision. I wanted to feel some of the music in a live setting before the album was wrapped. There were weird festival dates with Handsome Furs and No Age in far off places like Skopje, Macedonia. I played a tiny heavy metal bar in Sofia, Bulgaria, too. It was some wild shit. Anyway, here’s a full-on mastered live recording from the May 8, 2011 date in Bratislava. At the very least, it should be an interesting artifact.

Dig the amazing artwork for disc #8 in the Madlib Medicine Show series. The image, called Jazzcats Crossing the Hudson, depicts Pharoah Sanders, Miles Davis, Sun Ra, John Coltrane, and others ostensibly crossing the Hudson River. But, isn’t it the Delaware River, and isn’t that Philly?
