Glassnote recording Artist Robert DeLong has announced a month long residency in Los Angeles, CA as well as a run of headline East Coast dates around the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. Robert DeLong will kick off his residency at the Echoplex in Los Angeles on Monday, October 1st and wrap on Monday, October 29th. DeLong will bring his innovative live show to the East Coast for dates in Philadelphia and Washington D.C. in late October following the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City. All confirmed dates are below.
Robert DeLong, raised in the suburbs of Seattle, headed south to Los Angeles with a toolbox of Wii-motes, keyboards, and drums to develop a live rock show that CMJ Magazine claims worthy of â€œan 8-bit warrior, seamlessly creating danceable electro beats with his Wii Remote and Sega Genesis controller on par with the Chemical Brothers.â€
DeLong began performing his genre-bending songs in 2010, where he uses MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, drum pads, keyboards, laptops and game controllers, looping his music to fuse electronic dance beats with rock â€˜nâ€™ roll melodies.
As DeLong started playing more and more shows, most recently playing WEQXâ€™s Pearlapalooza in Albany, NY, the Silver Lake Jubilee Festival, The Starscape Festival in Baltimore, Maryland and opening for STRFKR, he immediately caught the attention of critics and fans alike. Albanyâ€™s Alternative Rock station, WEQX added â€œGlobal Concepts,â€ by DeLong, which has since become the stationsâ€™#1 most requested song. DeLong has also received radio play from influential rock stations such as KCRW and KROQ.
Robert DeLong signed to Glassnote Records this past Spring.
