RED DAWN

Last time we checked in on Dawn Richard, the former Danity Kane frontwoman had booked an S.O.B.’s show to celebrate the release of her debut solo LP, Goldenheart. Unfortunately for fans, the record was delayed (though her Whiteout EP made for a perfectly fine stop gap, coinciding nicely with the first snowfall), and so we reconvene tonight, at the same venue, with Bridget Kelly opening. If the new tunes put you in the right mood, stick around for a late-night show featuring Mad Decent DJ Dirty South Joe, Queens rapper and Das Racist affiliate Lakutis, and the meme-ready Riff Raff, one of the biggest enigmas in all of music.

SHOWSTOPPER

Fans of MTV’s Making the Band 3 will
remember Dawn Richard for her role in Diddy-selected female supergroup Danity Kane, the voices behind such r&b classics as “Ride for You,” “Stay with Me,” and, best of all, “Show Stopper.” These days, having left Puff’s Bad Boy Records, after playing a key role in the mogul’s stellar Last Train to Paris, Richard is making some of the most forwarding-thinking r&b on the planet: In March, her Armor On EP offered a wider range of beats and sounds than most albums, and tonight she comes to S.O.B.’s in anticipation of the release of her recently pushed back debut LP, Goldeneye.
