M.I.A. Plays Another Secret Show in New York (Photos!)

Last night, M.I.A. played an impromptu New York show for… Cartoon Network!?

Yup, that’s right. She played at an event intended to woo ad execs to the Adult Swim programming block on Cartoon Network. (See pix of her schmoozing with head of Adult Swim, Mike Lazzo here…) Why Cartoon Network? Well, it’s not hard to imagine what she’d look like as a cartoon character — maybe they’ll make her one?

Enough rambling… How was the show?

According to half of twitter – “MIA was incredible.” While she might have been, the other half noted, “The acoustics stink. Can’t hear M.I.A.’s vocals at all. Looks dope, tho.”

Still, we wish we were there. As we last blogged, the album is out July 13. Get ready. And head here to hear the record’s latest single, “XXXO.”
