Future Islands sold out their January 9 show at Terminal 5 and have now added a second show, happening the day before (1/8) also at T5 with Wing Dam and Operators. Tickets for that show are on AmEx and Fan Club presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (10/24) at 10 AM. It's a second night at a giant midtown venue, but it's not like they have their old Williamsburg places to play anymore. They've added a few other shows to their winter tour as well, and all dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, Future Islands recently did a 4AD Sessions video and their performances of "Sun in the Morning" and "Doves" can be watched below.

NYC shoegazers Asobi Seksu went on indefinite hiatus in 2013 and guitarist James Hanna now has a new band, Youth Worship, which formed early this year. Youth Worship finds Hanna in more rocking mode, and "Pink Snow" from their just-released debut EP is a real stomper. (The rest of the EP is a little more in Asobi style.) That song's video, directed by Bradley Cantor, makes its premiere in this post and you can watch it, and stream the whole EP, below. The band have put the finishing touches on their first album which features guest appearances by some of the Boris folks and will be out in early 2015.

Youth Worship will play a hometown NYC show on November 3 Trans Pecos with new Captured Tracks artist Dinner, as well as Night Squad. That's their only upcoming date.

Streams below...

Crowbar

New Orleans sludge mainstays Crowbar have spent much of 2014 touring behind their excellent new LP Symmetry in Black. Now they've announced yet another tour to go down before the year ends, this time with Unearth and Black Crown Initiate. That tour rolls into NYC on December 8 at Saint Vitus. The Vitus stop (presented by Noisey) will also include a screening of Noisey's 'NOLA' documentary, which was made by former BV writer Fred Pessaro and is really worth checking out. Tickets for that show will go on sale this Friday (10/24) at noon.

Crowbar also just put out a new video for "Symmetry in White" from their new LP, which you can watch below. The final NOLA episode will be revealed soon (UPDATE: It's out now and can be watched below), but 'til then you can watch the latest episode, with the full list of tour dates, also below...

Matmos

Brooklyn's Issue Project Room will be closing in 2015 for renovations to its Boerum Place theater. One of the final events before it closes will be a special IPR benefit on December 9, featuring electronic duo Matmos performing scenes from Robert Ashley's groundbreaking television opera Perfect Lives which ran from 1978 - 1983. Tickets are available now for IPR members and will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday (10/22). It's Matmos' only show on their schedule. Here's a little bit more about the performance:

Perfect Lives (1978-83) is Robert Ashley's opera "about" bank robbery, cocktail lounges, geriatric love, adolescent elopement, et al, in the American Midwest. One of the definitive text-sound compositions of the late 20th century, it has been called a comic opera about reincarnation. Originally commissioned by the Kitchen in the early 80s, Ashley's Perfect Lives, the opera for television is widely considered the precursor of music-television and a masterpiece of the American vernacular. A Spanish-language adaptation of Perfect Lives, Vidas Perfectas, was commissioned by ISSUE Project Room in 2012 and later staged as part of the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
The Matmos performance even takes place just after the Kim Gordon & Loren Connors show at Issue Project Room on 12/3 with Gary War. Tickets for that show go on sale to the general public on Friday (10/24).

Noon is also when Matt Marcus of Three Kings Tattoo will start giving out free tattoos courtesy of Sailor Jerry Sign up at his table for the chance to win one and get inked right inside the front room of Baby's for free. (this year tattoo recipients will be picked by raffle instead of first come, first served like last year).

Then it's the UK's The Wytches who recently released their debut LP on Partisan which is a little psych and a little garage.

By the time the Wytches get off stage, we'll start handing out complimentary Sailor Jerry rum beverages while supplies last.

The always-fun Tweens, who were great at our SXSW party earlier this year, follow, and then it's the Australian psych maniacs King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard who always bring the party.

Complimentary Sailor Jerry will still be flowing and we'll have multiple varieties of Bell's on tap for you to try out.

Then it's the sarcastic and smart post-punks Protomartyr, followed by lushly arranged emo band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die.

Then the volume gets turned up for Canadian punks Single Mothers, who finally put out their debut LP after some delay this year, and Chicago's raucous Twin Peaks will wrap up the day on an equally loud note. Hopefully nobody rips down the ceiling this time!

Again, the show is totally free (no badge required). RSVP here. 21+ to enter.
