We recently reported on Porter Robinson‘s announcement his new project . The project has both excited and confused Porter fans for the radical change in style. Now it appears that Porter might be ready for Virtual Self’s first performance, or some other showcase. user posted this picture an event poster late Sunday afternoon.
According to his post on , a friend shirazdh found the poster while “they were walking around Brooklyn.” This seems to be the first instance any mention the show. There have been no mentions the show on social media and nothing appears on any artist websites. But all signs point towards these posters being legitimate.
Porter has already made it very clear he plans to change up his MO for the Virtual Self project. He intentionally trolled specific fans with a tweet about a fake Worlds 2 album, blasting those who want his musical style to sound the same. You can read more about that in But other factors indicate this event could definitely be real.
The posters were found the day after a Madeon show in Brooklyn. For those you in the dark, Porter and Madeon share a large amount fans, especially after their recent collaboration on ‘Shelter‘ and the accompanying world tour. Also the fact that there are actual physical flyers, not just an internet leak, makes it more believable that this event will happen. But perhaps the most convincing piece evidence comes from a email from the apparent venue, Avant Gardner. A hero emailed the address attached to the Avant Gardner website and got this response.
The first known Virtual Self event will take place on December 8th, 2017 at Avant Gardner in Brooklyn, NY.
