The event will be held at Los Angeles' Mayan Theatre, with proceeds to benefit Tamashiro's recovery from a near-fatal brain aneurysm.
DJ Shadow will be playing his first show in nearly four years that evening, in tandem with Cut Chemist. The pair will spin material from their 1999 collaborative album "Brainfreeze," a highly sought after collectable featuring rare soul and funk singles.
As previously reported, DJ Shadow is nearing completion on his first new album since 2002's "The Private Press." First single "3 Freaks" can be streamed from his Web site, where he recently wrote, "Some have said 'Press' was an inward-looking album. If that's true, than this album is the opposite, and that suits me just fine."
Shadow will also perform at the U.K.'s Wireless Festival, to be held June 23 in London and June 24 in Leeds.
