Fang Island @ Knitting Factory in April (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)
Fang Island will be one of the "tons more" promised at Cake Shop's May 29th show with Dan Deacon, which is part of the venue's fifth-anniversary month (a month that includes the NYC debut of New Moods this evening, May 17th).
Fang Island are currently on tour through the end of May, and this July they'll head out with the Flaming Lips. Those shows include Lips' July 4th Atlantic City show and their upstate NY shows (one of which has Black Keys and Morning Benders). All dates are below.
The band's self-titled record that came out earlier this year. Two tracks from it are above, and below are two videos directed by Carlos Charlie Perez (no relation to Danny Perez, Animal Collective collaborator, besides the sonic similarities). All tour dates and videos are below...
