On February 20th, Painted BLACK WILL return to Irving Plaza for ACT II.
Headlining the night are New York natives DIIV. The atmospheric and dynamic Brooklyn four-piece weave classic kraut, dreamy psychedelia, and primitive late-80’s Seattle crunch. Their debut album "Oshin" was an instant success upon release, finding its way on to the esteemed pages of Pitchfork and Altered Zones within just weeks.
Twin Shadow is a born crooner with an eclectic palate and a fever for the dance floor. Having recently toured at Coachella, Pitchfork music festival and Bonnaroo, Twin Shadow will turn up the heat with a sick DJ set fueled by Detroit techno, Brooklyn rock and funky vogue beats.
Garage-gaze trio Guards are a Brooklyn-based indie band that went from a bedroom project to a critically acclaimed effort in the blink of an eye. Guards will mix dream and indie rock sounds into Painted BLACK's atmospheric musical experience.
We are also excited to announce a partnership with acclaimed Parisian fashion house Maje. Maje will be supporting the series, contributing a dark and sexy fashion perspective to the BLACK discourse.
Each of these performances will be paired with visually stunning interactive shows that have been created collaboratively with the performers and have never been seen before.
Tickets to Act I are almost sold out. Get tickets now, and join us to celebrate the queen of all colors: BLACK.
