Funky duo Gnarls Barkley are giving fans a special treat this weekend exclusively in New York City as they team with R&B futuristic rocker and the latest Bad Boy signee, Janelle Monáe, for a free performance.
Presented by MySpace Secret Shows, the event, which will also feature rock group Battles, will take place this Sunday (June 8). Although there is no admission, the best chance of getting a seat is arriving early, as the set-up is a first come, first served basis.
In addition to the group’s New York performance this weekend, out-of-state fans will also get a chance to see Gnarls – made-up of producer Danger Mouse and singer Cee-Lo Green – later this summer. As previously reported by SOHH, the wildly entertaining duo will team-up with Kanye West as they headline this year’s Lollapalooza music festival in Texas from August 1-3.
Also performing at Lollapaloozza will be popular rock groups including Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against the Machine as well as hip-hop artists like Kid Sister and The Cool Kids.
Gnarls Barkley’s Secret MySpace Show is this Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza.
