Nope, but it's in the Madonna Inn, one of the most hilariously over-the-top hotels in the lands. I believe they have themed rooms, I know the outside is bright pink. It looks incredible.

New York City
April 28th - May 31st
As you may or may not have heard, we'll be touching down in New York City from April 28 to May 31 for the 15th edition of the Red Bull Music Academy. We’ll be putting on a total of 34 shows in that time, from live concerts and club nights to A/V installations, film screenings and public conversations with some of music's true greats.
Here's only a handful of the music makers who will be performing at some of the best venues around: Brian Eno, James Murphy, DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown aka Erykah Badu, Giorgio Moroder, Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laboratory, Skream, Kim Gordon, Four Tet and Masters at Work. The full slate of events will be unveiled on March 4 (and that’ll be the date that you can pick up tickets as well), so watch this space for details.
During the entire month of May, Brian Eno brings his acclaimed audio-visual installation 77 Million Paintings to the former location of Café Rouge for its East Coast debut. 77 Million Paintings is a generative work – making itself as you watch it – which explores a vast set of permutations of visual and sonic elements made by the pioneering composer and sound conceptualist. The result is “between music and painting.”
The exhibition will be accompanied by an “Illustrated Talk” on May 6 in which Eno will outline the creative processes that have driven his work, in true Red Bull Music Academy fashion.
We’ll also be gearing up for the first New York edition of the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash on May 9. First hosted in London in 2010, the Culture Clash is now a staple on the international music scene, and a unique celebration of sound system culture.
The first New York edition will feature crews from hip hop, reggae, modern Latin and electronic dance music including Max Glazer, the man behind the city’s best dancehall parties and the brilliant Federation Sound; Fool’s Gold Records, the genre-defying Brooklyn label headed up by A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs; Young Guru and Just Blaze, the architects of Roc-A-Fella’s classic NYC hip hop sound and countless hits from Jay-Z to Rihanna; and Que Bajo?!, a collective known for starting full-on riots with their unique blend of cumbia, moombahton and tropical bass. Every crew will play custom-made tracks only to be heard on the night – and as always, plenty of special guests are expected.
On May 25, the Red Bull Music Academy will team up with the era-defining DFA Records for an epic celebration of the label’s 12th anniversary. From making indie kids dance again to taking Madison Square Garden by storm, DFA is a New York institution if there ever was one. DFA founder James Murphy will headline an epic nine-hour, multi-room show at the Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn, with over 15 live acts and DJs spanning the entire history of DFA, including some first-ever in the US performances. The final lineup will be announced imminently.
The party will be accompanied by the documentary 12 Years of DFA: Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic, a mashed-up, frenzied portrait of the iconic label and the creative minds and recording artists behind it. The 12 minute film will be premiering during the Red Bull Music Academy and will be available for streaming right here on redbullmusicacademy.com
On May 2, for one day and night, we’ll be transforming the Knockdown Center into a temple of thundering noise with some of today’s most daring sound artists for an event we’re calling Drone Activity in Progress.
Artists include Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) (performing solo as SOMA and in his duo project KTL), Prurient, Alan Licht and Sonic Youth founding member Kim Gordon who will present her collaborative project with Bill Nace, Body/Head. Visuals in this multi-sensory experience come courtesy of the creative minds behind Nuit Blanche.
If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s a bit of bass. That’s why we’re going to take one special night to celebrate it properly. United States of Bass will bring together pioneers of America’s most influential regional bass music styles.
We’ve got New York’s own Afrika Bambaataa, LA’s electro pioneer Egyptian Lover, Detroit’s ghettotech godfather DJ Assault, Chicago’s juke and footwork heroes DJ Spinn and DJ Rashad, New Orleans bounce queen Big Freedia, Baltimore’s Scottie B, Miami’s DJ Magic Mike, Chicago vet DJ Funk and current bass music innovators such as Drop The Lime and Salva all lined up for one big low frequency extravaganza. Expect two floors, 808 beats and one nation under a groove.
These are only a handful of the events that will keep NYC on lock during the whole month of May. Tickets for all shows will go on sale on March 4, 2013 at 10am via www.ticketweb.com.
Look forward to more details on shows with the likes of Oscar and Grammy winner Ryuichi Sakamoto and German electronic artist Alva Noto, seminal NYC house duo Masters At Work, disco legend Giorgio Moroder (with his first ever live DJ set), David Bowie producers Tony Visconti and Nile Rodgers, Four Tet, Pantha du Prince, dubstep trailblazers Skream and Mala, hip hop beat-makers of the moment Young Chop and DJ Mustard, New York labels L.I.E.S. and UNO, the inimitable Erykah Badu, and hundreds more.
God, I hate NYC right now. Oren Ambarchi will also be doing a NYC show in May. BLAH.
And thanks for the info re: the glasshouse and fox, supre.

Black Flag pre/post-Rollins is like having Rollins Band without Rollins. No gang presence. The real fans are too poor for drugs. A total shit storm for the nose when you get that many crusty unwashed angst fueled teen virgins in the same room. Have fun?

bahaha they are looking at MUCH bigger venues than fox/el rey
if it's gonna be a Coachella warm-up show they are not. It'll likely be Fox or Club Nokia or the Fonda or nothing.
10/22/14 - TV On The Radio @ Regent // 11/9/14 - Bad Religion @ Mayan // 11/14/14 - Death From Above 1979 @ Regent // 11/16/14 - Lucero @ Echo
Im sure the eventual La date after Berkeley Greek is gonna end up being Staples Center. But odds are Fox Pomona. Probably Monday or Tuesday before they go to Phoenix.
