Foxygen @ Bowery Ballroom in February (more by Jonathon Bernstein)
Foxygen's "No Destruction" is one of our favorite songs of the year, so we're glad it's now got the awesome video it deserves. Brilliantly, the band's close friend Bryan Felber decided to get nostalgic, putting together a kind of supercut of some of the homemade films he worked on in high school and college with the band members before they got together to form Foxygen, and stitching it together with some new footage too. The end product is as smart as it is surreal, just like the song itself.Watch the video below.
Foxygen arrive in NYC on Monday (5/13) for a three-night run starting with a $3.00, BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show with Amen Dunes (who just opened for Boris), LODRO (who also have a new video), and Price Rupert's Drops also on the bill. All ages, no advanced tickets. Want to go for free (and have your ticket waiting for you at the door)? We're giving away two pairs of tickets, and DoNYC has a pair you can win too. Details on how to enter our contest are below along with the video and more tour dates (Pygmalion and ACL included).
For a chance at winning tickets to the BrooklynVegan Red Bull Sound Select show: either tweet something that includes BOTH @BrooklynVegan AND @RBSoundSelect in the tweet, or send an email to BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM with the subject line "FOXYGEN". Include your first and last name in the email. We'll pick a winner at random and contact them with more details. If you enter by email, it will not be shared with anyone else. Good luck!
