Little Dragon
Playing Tuesday at Music Hall of Williamsburg
 (66 North 6th Street, Williamsburg)
*Sold Out* | Directions

Little Dragon's third album Ritual Union dropped in July, chock full of synth-pop burbles and offset by cool crooning from the band's Swedish-Japanese frontwoman Yukumi Nagano. The tight production and creative sounds on the record are the real deal — or in this case, the synth deal — and fans have taken note. The Gorillaz and Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio are among those who have made music with Little Dragon.

Tuesday night's show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg sold out double-quick last week. If you can't find a ticket for the show on StubHub or Craigslist, download "Nightlife" here. The song starts with sounds you might hear at a Nintendo dance party, before building into a shoulder-shimmying, soaring good time.
