We Were Promised Jetpacks at BV-CMJ (more by BBG)
Scotland's We Were Promised Jetpacks spent their Mischief Night (10/30) at Webster Hall in NYC. We invited the band's frontman Adam Thompson into a studio earlier that day to record a session for BrooklynVegan (stay tuned). He told us it was maybe the largest headlining show of their career so far. It was definitely their largest in NYC, and much larger than the show they played for us at Knitting Factory during CMJ. How was it?
Opening at Webster were Royal Bangs and Bear Hands who are still on tour with the Jetpacks. They're making their way towards Austin for Fun Fun Fun Fest where WWPJP will play the fest while BH and RB will link up with Dom & Pujol for a FFF Nites set on 11/6.
Bear Hands return to NYC and headline Music Hall of Williamsburg on 12/16 with guest Fort Lean. Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon on Wed (11/2) and regular sale on Friday. Fort Lean will ALSO be at Le Poisson Rouge on 11/26 as part of the 2nd Annual Voidwell Homecoming Dance with Gordon Voidwell and his band, Emil and Friends, Emily Warren & The Betters and a DJ set from Aaron Pfenning (tickets).
