Dâm-Funk is never ever taking off those sunglasses; also, he is going on tour

Do you like sunglasses? Then you will like funk master Dâm-Funk. Simple as that. Do a quick Google image search for “Dâm-Funk.” I guarantee you will not find more than five sunglasses-less pictures of the guy. At least, not within the first 10 pages. Look, you have to go deep to behold Dâm-Funk’s eyes.

But you won’t have to go deep at all to see him live! Segue! While Dâm’s been at work on both the follow-up to 2009’s double-album Toeachizown and his collaborative record with Steve Arrington of Slave, both on Stones Throw, he’s found time for a lengthy fall tour. It’ll be a two-leg affair: first, a solo tour, then one with his group Master Blazter. Those solo dates include a handful of DJ sets, including one with Flying Lotus and Four Tet. No matter the show, no matter the lighting, you can reasonably expect sunglasses.
