Coming off a stellar performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Alan Palomo's chillwave project Neon Indian will be performing tracks from the critically-acclaimed album Era Extrana. Co-headlining with Neon Indian on the Noisey College Tour, will be Oakland rapper, videographer, and recent VMA Best New Artist nominee Kreayshawn, whose infectious hit song "Gucci Gucci" became the song of the summer when it infiltrated house parties and airwaves from Cali to London. With the spotlight on both of these eclectic artists, plan on 2012 being a big year for them both.

"Dell is sharing our passion for music by bringing real-time, live music events like the Austin City Limits Festival and Lollapalooza online and into the living room," said Michael Tatelman, Dell's vice president of North America Consumer Sales and Marketing. "Now, in conjunction with, we invite our college student fans across the nation to share in the new music discovery experience live and join us for the official concert tour event, free for students, and coming to a college near you."

Valerie Wilkinson, director of OEM Co-Marketing Group at Intel, shared: "Every day, college students are using Intel Core technology to discover, create and share music. Intel is excited to bring the platform live to these great college towns in the U.S., showcasing the unique performances of two of the world's up and coming artists who are innovators in their own right and using technology in their creation of music."

About Neon Indian:

Neon Indian released its sophomore LP, Era Extrana, a mere two weeks ago, and in those two weeks the band premiered the first official music video from the album, "Polish Girl," a collaboration with The Creator's Project that was directed by Tim Nackashi. The band took elements of the music video to late night TV when they performed "Polish Girl" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The album is avail. on iTunes at the discounted price of $7.99 now and the deluxe edition package, which includes the PAL198X is nearly sold out.

"Rather than the deeply submerged sounds of its debut - which drew the attention of the Flaming Lips, who tapped the band for a collaborative EP - Mr. Palomo is taking the same milky synths and putting them to use in pop that's crisp and ecstatic." - The New York Times

About Kreayshawn:

Kreayshawn, is a 21-year-old Oakland, California native who recently grabbed the attention of everyone from the New York Times to Complex to Women's Wear Daily with her single "Gucci Gucci," which has received over 20 million views on YouTube since its debut in May 2011. Fresh off her recent VMA nomination for Best New Artist and four sold-out headlining dates and other appearances at Popped! Festival, Summer Jams, and clubs in London and Paris, the self-proclaimed "crazy cat lady" is gearing up to get back into the studio to release her yet-to-be-titled debut album, which will consist of her signature verbal mischief and genre-blending style.

"Kreayshawn is a trendsetter in music, fashion, and the Internet and isn't going anywhere but up." - CBS News

The Background:

A former film student at Berkeley Digital Film School who's directed videos for the likes of Lil B and Soulja Boy and had her work praised by Diplo, The Weeknd, Drake, and others, Kreayshawn, a self-described rapper, DJ, director, swag-assassin, and under-cat, has quickly taken the music world by storm. Initially building buzz with the release of her "Bumpin' Bumpin'" video, in mid-May, 2011, Kreayshawn released her video for "Gucci Gucci," a single from her forthcoming soon-to-be-titled debut album, that takes aim at those who define themselves through materialism while encouraging individuality and self-expression. The video quickly took off, being viewed over 200,000 times in 48 hours and reaching one million views in just over a week. Kreayshawn has since signed with Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment. Kreayshawn is currently prepping her upcoming album and doing spot dates in NY, Chicago, SF, LA, and Philly while "Gucci Gucci" makes it way to video and radio rotations and digital retailers worldwide.
