DFA1979 @ Treasure Island Fest 2011 (more by Autumn Andell)
We already knew Japandroids would be playing a Governors Ball afterparty at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 7. That one is sold-out, but they are far from the only ones in on the afterparty action. There are a bunch happening over the course of the festival (June 7 - 9), which were all announced today.
Friday (6/7) has the most. In addition to Japandroids, there'll be more Canadians afoot with Death From Above 1979 and Fucked Up at Irving Plaza. Tickets to that show go on sale Friday (4/26) at 10 AM with a Governors Ball presale starting Wednesday (4/24) at 10 AM, and LiveNation and Music Geeks presales on Thursday at 10 AM.
Also on Friday night, Polica and Solid Gold play Brooklyn Bowl and tickets go on sale Friday (4/26) at noon.
For those inclined to dance, Friday night also has Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs DJing at Webster Hall. Those tickets are on sale now.
And one last Friday afterparty: The Revivalists, Roadkill Ghost Choir and Swear & Shake play Bowery Ballroom. Tickets to that go on sale Friday (4/26) with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday at noon.
On Saturday (6/8), Haim and Kate Boy will play Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/26) at noon.
Also on Saturday, over at Gramercy Theatre it's Griz, and Cherub. Tickets go on sale Friday (4/26) at 10 AM with a Governors Ball presale starting Wednesday (4/24) at 10 AM, and LiveNation and Music Geeks presales on Thursday at 10 AM.
Only one afterparty on Sunday (6/9) and it's at Brooklyn Bowl with Sister Sparrow, Hollis Brown, and Shakey Graves at Brooklyn Bowl.
And for those who like to pre-party, Governors Ball is doing that too. Kate Boy, Hey Champ, and Gemini Club will play Santos Party House on Thursday, June 6. Tickets to that show are on sale now.
