M.I.A.’s quickly becoming the Brett Favre of indie: after some premature rumblings, she’s completely unretired now. M.I.A.’s breaking the promise that her Bonnaroo performance was her last: On October 11, she will be taking the stage along with Hot Chip and N.E.R.D. at Brooklyn’s Pier 3 for a Diesel xXx-sponsored show.
Diesel xXx has events taking place around the world with aritsts like Cool Kids, New Young Pony Club, Bonde Do Role, and many others, and New York, which has a “Rock and Roll Circus” theme, is the final event.
Now all that’s left for M.I.A. to do is to go out and throw a few picks to the New England Patriots, I mean Hot Chip.
