Experimental electronic artist and producer Nicolas Jaar will be playing a pair of concerts at Brooklyn Steel in New York City next month. Announced on Friday, the two shows will take place at the new Brooklyn venue on Oct. 17 and 18, and may be the musician’s last North American concerts of 2017 before he heads over to Europe a week later for some international dates.
Always the unique performer, Jaar has spent much of the year on the road, having carried his busy touring schedule over from 2016 after releasing his second full-length album back in September of last year with Sirens. In addition to playing a number of North American and overseas concerts as the headlining act, Jaar has appeared across the music festival landscape throughout the summer, including New York’s Panorama, Montreal’s Osheaga, L.A.’s FYF Fest and Chicago’s Pitchfork to name a few. The newly announced upcoming pair of shows will be his first time performing at Brooklyn Steel, which opened earlier this year back on April 6 of this year with a 5-show residency courtesy of LCD Soundsystem.
Since starting to create experimental styles of electronic music back in the late 2000s, Jaar has built a global following thanks to his unique performance style and constant touring. He’s also dipped his toe into the cinematic world by scoring the music for 2015’s Dheepan. The French crime drama would go on to win The Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival later that year.
