Fleet Foxes, touring in support of their new Sub Pop album Helplessness Blues, played their first of two shows at United Palace Theater in NYC last night (5/18) with the Cave Singers. Pictures from the show, including one of the setlist, are in this post.
They do it again tonight, then appear on Fallon Friday, and finish the tour in Upper Darby, PA on Saturday. Fleet Foxes' other upcoming dates, mostly scheduled in July, now also include Austin City Limits in September. All of them are listed below.
You'll notice on the Wednesday night setlist it says "solo break." That's when Robin Pecknold came out and played "Oliver James" to lead off the encore. Robin, who toured solo with Joanna Newson not too long ago, released a free 3-song solo EP even more recently. That EP, which contains a duet with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear and a Chris Thompson cover, can be downloaded and streamed, under the rest of the pictures, below...
