Foxygen @ Chicago's Lincoln Hall in March (more by James Richards IV)
As mentioned, Foxygen are currently on a short East Coast tour that ends with two sold-out NYC shows next week: Knitting Factory on May 14 and Mercury Lounge on May 15. If you wanted to go to one of those shows but didn't get tickets, we've got good news. We're happy to announce that Foxygen will headline a BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show on Monday (5/13) at Knitting Factory. As always, the show is $3 at the door. 7pm doors. 8pm show. All ages, no advance tickets.
This is the fourth NYC RBSS show -- the previous three were curated by East Village Radio, Afropunk, and Brooklyn Bodega. Like those, in addition to the headliner Monday's show features three local acts.
For our openers, we kept things on the trippy side: Amen Dunes, who open for Boris at LPR tonight (5/7), will play and perhaps give a taste of their forthcoming new album. Also on the bill are LODRO, the Royal Baths side project that has been honing its live show through relentless gigging; and Prince Rupert's Drops whose album Run Slow was one of 2012's overlooked gems. Adding to the fun will be your host, the amazing comedian, storyteller and author Chris Gethard (of the Chris Gethard Show among other things). Hope to see you out on Monday.
UPDATE: our own Bill Pearis will also be DJing starting at 7pm sharp.
If you can't make this show, you can always catch Foxygen in late July at a much bigger venue -- Pier 84 as part of the 7/25 free River Rocks show with Thao & the Get Down Stay Down.
