Major Lazer In-Store Appearance

Major Lazer's surf-ragga carnival of an album dropped this week on Mad Decent. Gunz Don't Kill People, Lazer's Do is the perfect accompaniment to any latenight dancehall cartoon warzone, which almost actually makes sense coming from the never boring minds of Diplo and Switch.

The two DJ's are amidst a summer tour, rocking the "Lazer Theme" and fighting bad guys the world over. They head across the pond in August.

Major Lazer is in town this weekend, playing the Rock and Roll Hotel Saturday night. They will also be doing an in-store appearance at Soundgarden at 6 P.M. on Saturday.

This will be part of Vinyl Saturday, another attempt by the people who brought you Record Store Day (which looks to be Warner Brothers?). This designated day to buy records at independant record stores, sponsored by a major label, is a chance to get limited edition vinyl only released that day. In addition to all that hoopla, Soundgarden will have in copies of Major Lazer's LP on vinyl.

And, don't forget to peep one of the most entertaining music videos of the year so far.
