Chairlift @ Mercury Lounge
Chairlift played a sold-out Mercury Lounge last night (10/24) with Beach Fossils, just a couple of weeks after Chairlift played the Creators Project in DUMBO (picture sets one, two, and three), and not long after they opened some shows for James Blake (including Webster Hall). Chairlift have a few UK dates coming up soon. They're listed with more pictures from the Merc show below.
Beach Fossils also recently played 285 Kent with Beach Fossil sideproject (that is quickly becoming bigger than Beach Fossils?) Dive, Minks, and Heavenly Beat, and are also preparing to head out of the country for a stint of dates in Mexico. Dive meanwhile plays 285 Kent again on November 10th with North America and Hunter. BF dates are listed below.
Chaiflift recently posted new "videos" (streaming songs in video form) for the songs "Sidewalk Safari" and "Peculiar Paradise" from their forthcoming LP SOMETHING due on 1/24/12. Check that those out alongside all tour dates and more pictures from Mercury Lounge, below...
