YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE:

Frank Ocean — whose genre-mangled and deliciously-colored debut album Channel Orange (TMT Review) came out this summer — will be performing one or more of his live-audience-approved songs in front of a live audience while being filmed and recorded by various personnel working for the non-cable television network NBC this coming September 15, 2012. The performances will commence at a time antecedent to 11:30 EST, and Tiny Mix Tapes is happy to announce that this broadcast pre-qualifies as great news for people who have heretofore enjoyed Ocean’s recorded music output and are interested in seeing a small portion of that music reconstituted by live performers without having to leave their own homes, neighborhood bars, ER waiting rooms, etc. To reiterate, this is a non-repeating, once-in-a-lifetime, never-to-be-restaged event that popular opinion would suggest is not to be missed.

THAT IS A…

Oh, no, wait, we forgot to mention: before, during, and after all this, some comedy troupe will do skits while Seth MacFarlane hangs out and does voices that all sound a lot like one another.

THAT IS ALL.
