F*ck Buttons @ McCarren Pool

Liars headlined the free show at McCarren Pool in Brooklyn this past Sunday (July 20, 2008). Fuck Buttons were one of the bands that opened the show (after playing the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago just one day earlier).

FB's next NYC show is opening for Mogwai at Terminal 5 (tix) - the show is part of a larger tour that also brings FB & Mogwai to the ATP Fest upstate. All dates and more pics below....

i thought they came off really well when playing on mccarren having only seem them in small venues before sunday. i'll throw in the love for them.

My favorite thing about the Buttons is that they add a big pop element to their noise. But that's not going to endear them to the hardcore noise crowd.

the hardcore noise crowd needs all the help they can get ... and i live providence
