Karen O & Danger Mouse will play a very special live show Friday, September 6 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, their only live engagement in support of their collaborative album, Lux Prima, released earlier this year on BMG.

Lux Prima, the first collaboration from the iconic Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and the legendary musician-producer, was released in March to widespread critical acclaim. In celebration of the album, Karen O & Danger Mouse presented a companion piece, the groundbreaking immersive installation “An Encounter with Lux Prima” in April with a completely sold out run at Los Angeles’ Marciano Art Foundation.

In addition to four albums with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a solo album, Crush Songs, Grammy-nominated O has contributed to soundtracks for Where The Wild Things Are and Her, for which she was nominated for an Oscar. Grammy-winning artist Danger Mouse’s projects include Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells and Danger Doom as well as work with Adele, The Black Keys, Gorillaz, A$AP Rocky and beyond.

Lux Prima continues to receive widespread critical praise…

“An album of sprawling, soulful, cinematic psych rock filled with astral bass lines, gauzy strings and Karen O-isms like ‘You’re not coming for me/I’m coming for you.’…The nine tracks on Lux Prima unspool grandly, from the ominous lullaby ‘Ministry’ to the stomping girl-group squall of ‘Woman’ to the compact psych-funk groove of ‘Leopard’s Tongue.’”—The New York Times

“Lux Prima ventures fully out of this stratosphere…a cinematic journey through the outer reaches of the cosmos and the inner reaches of the artists themselves.”—GQ

“Lux Prima is a gloriously wide-screen album, sweeping and epic,
with a lush, multi-layered sound”—Variety

“Karen O & Danger Mouse bring out best in each other”—Associated Press
