Blood Orange

Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, has tied laces with heritage sneaker-makers Converse to play one of those special Converse Gigs at London-based jazz dive the 100 Club.

It’s on 20 Feb, and will feature ‘special guests’, who – given Skepta, Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, and Friends’ Samantha Urbani are all ‘guests’ on Dev’s 2013 LP ‘Cupid Deluxe’ – will likely be really quite special indeed. I wouldn’t count on Solange showing up, though.

Hynes appears as a guest of NYC magazine The FADER, which is partnering with Converse for the duration of the show.

As is usual practice with all Converse Gigs, tickets are free, but you’ll have to win a pair by applying via this very special link.
