ArtDontSleep – JFK to LAX and All Across The Country!

“It is with great pleasure that we announce our new collaboration with Adrian Younge. Adrian and his band, Venice Dawn, have become ArtDontSleep staples and their last record, Something About April, really changed our lives! This month, Adrian is set to release two new records. One is a collaboration with Delfonics lead man, William Hart, coming out next Tuesday on Wax Poetics Records. The second album set to release this month is, 12 Reasons To Die, his collaboration with The Ghostface Killah.

We have been lucky enough to be asked to plan all of Adrian Younges North american touring and we thought we would start with two of the greatest cities in the world, LA and NYC! THe NYC show is a kick off for the release of the new Delfonics collaboration and the LA show is not only a kick off for the new Ghostface collaboration, but also a kick off for the 40 city tour that ArtDontSleep has booked for Ghostface, Adrian Younge and Venice Dawn.

Please share these details far and wide with every music lover you know. These events will not be duplicated nor replicated. How do we know this? Because as we speak Adrian Younge is in the studio recording a brand new record with an entirely new set of legends and when this tour finishes, we will be getting set to embark on that tour.

We believe in live music. We believe in the congregation of musicians and the wonderful songs that derive therefrom. Witnessing both The Delfonics and Ghostface Killah in this light is like nothing you will witness again.” – Art Don’t Sleep
