Freelance Whales break into song
while waiting for that confounded L-train (more by Ryan Barkan)
Freelance Whales are hitting the road two weeks from today for a string of dates with Minature Tigers. The tour which kicks off on 11/5 at Maxwell's (a show that was recently added) and concludes with a homecoming show at Webster Hall on 12/15, will take them coast to coast in celebration of Weathervanes, their new album out now on Frenchkiss Records. Tickets are still available for both the Maxwell's and the Webster Hall show.
If you were hoping to see them sooner, you're in luck. But you're also out of luck. Freelance Whales will also be playing an invite-only show Friday (10/22) as part of the Green Label Sound series with Theophilus London, Neon Indian, and a DJ set from Flosstradamus at Backstage Bar.
Green Label Sound is the Mountain Dew "label". Freelance Whales are their latest "signing". Download new track "Enzymes" at the site.
Neon Indian play a public CMJ show at Bowery Ballroom Saturday night.
