You can almost count on one hand the shows happening this July 4th. She & Him, The Old 97s and Rosanne Cash all play free shows, while the Feelies hold fort a Maxwell's in Jersey. Add to those Shea Stadium's all-day BBQ show, that'll also be celebrating the one-year anniversary of its 20 Meadow Street location. The bands & genres range from black metal (via Liturgy) to 'minimalist funk' (courtesy of CSC Funk Band ) to sludge rock of La Otracina to synthy post-punk Future Islands (grab one of their songs above).

Definitely check out Future Islands if you can! They put on one of the most amazing shows I've ever seen in Montreal for a small crowd. So energetic and emotional; it's more of a theatrical performance than any other band I've ever seen.

Tinsel Teeth is awesome. They sound like the Jesus Lizard and the singer chick plays topless.

I never saw those future islanders but I do know a feller who called himself Future Penis and he drives a tan lamborgini.
And once I asked him why it's tan and he said because it reminds him of driving a sporty bowl of hummus.

It reminds him of a big bowl of fresh roasted red pepper hummus.

How dare anyone imply a reputable independent record company like Thrill Jockey would try to sell more records using unscrupulous tactics like STREET TEAMS?! When you sign amazing, relevant bands like Future Islands all you need to make those releases profitable is good ol' fashioned word-of-mouth!
