Handsome Furs

Handsome Furs (the band featuring Dan from Wolf Parade) is playing a show with Iran (the band featuring Kyp from TV on the Radio) and The Hundred in the Hands (the band featuring Jason from the Boggs) at Mercury Lounge in NYC on Friday March 6th. Tickets for the small-Manhattan-venue show go on Am Ex presale Wednesday at noon, and regular sale on Friday.

Like the Handsome Furs, The Hundred in the Hands is a male/female duo. The female part of the latter is Eleanore Everdel whose credits include vocals on 'Lover's Day' off TV on the Radio's Dear Science, and vocals on Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson's album Summer Of Fear. They (THITH) also have a show scheduled for this Friday, January 30th, at Union Pool in Brooklyn. One of their videos is below.

The new Handsome Furs date comes four days before the release of their new album on Sub Pop, and is currently their only NYC show. All dates below...

But you are old enough to use apostrophes and correct capitalization. Please use them.

I'm glad you can't come. I hate you and all your friends.

I don't hate the youth, but I don't like them either. Let me wear my flannel and sip my beer in peace, you scallywags.

I thought Handsome Furts were bigger than Mercury Lounge

I wonder if there is internal drama at the wolf parade camp about Spencer's side projects doing better

Handsome Furs are bigger than Mercury Lounge. This is a special show.

Iran's Buddy Ep is awesome! I heard their new single, "I Can See the Future" on the radio and I loved it! Real catchy. Can't wait for the new full length.

Don't think they really are bigger than mercury lounge. The new album is ok, and they are average live. There is only so much you can do with pre-recorded music and two people on stage. Kinda boring.

The last HF show was at the Bowery Ballroom and it was not sold out.

this may turn out to be the biggest collection of douchebags on one stage in all of 2009

Can't believe some of you people don't like this press photo or this band. I guess you'd prefer seeing the same old shit that been done to death a thousand times. Handsome Furs are fantastic and this press photo is much better than most of the bullshit that most bands put out.
