"What the fuck do you mean you're not paying my rent anymore mom I know my dj career hasn't taken off yet but I'm really working on it I just booked a show at a place called 285 Kent"

"Starting with 285 Kent, Patrick laid down the template for other DIY venues in the area, such as Death by Audio around the corner and Bushwick's Silent Barn; all have the same PA system"

uh, copying the sound system at 285 kent has to be the worst thing you could possibly do. not that I'm thrilled about any place closing, but if one had to, I'd probably choose the one with the worst fucking sound ever.

20 years from now they will do a movie all about 285 Kent, and get Jonah Hill to play Todd P Fitz

Future Islands is mentioned in the second to last paragraph before the actual interview begins.

I don't see future islands mentioned anywhere in that article. Did you definitely read that?

Posted by Anonymous | January 8, 2014 10:43 AM

That sure looks like the cover art of the new Future Islands to me.

Posted by Gerald | January 8, 2014 12:59 PM

10:43, you are correct that Future Islands and Teengirl Fantasy no longer appear in the body of the article. But both were there yesterday. The article was edited.

White Lung slays everything.

Great job Pitchfork, this video rocks. Maybe next time you should think about diversifying your video team too--filmmaking is a field with far more discrimination and lack of equal gender representation than is the indie rock scene!

great songs... great music :-)
