Beyonce's singer sister Solange Knowles took to the stage in the unglamorous setting of a New York City laundromat on Monday (29Jul13) as part of a pop-up concert series.

The star gave the intimate performance on a raised platform surrounded by coin-operated washing machines and dryers at the Atlantis Laundromat in Brooklyn for The Fader magazine's Vitaminwater Uncapped event.

Knowles, who cancelled all her upcoming European festival performances last week (beg22Jul13) due to "family reasons", follows in the footsteps of Santigold, B.o.B. and Earl Sweatshirt who have all performed during this year's (13) concert series.
