An Horse @ ACL 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Australian duo An Horse are here, due in part to their tour with Nada Surf, which hits Metro tomorrow night (April 2). Tickets are still available for that. The duo play an Epitonic Saki Session tonight with opener Champions. It begins at 5PM and they'll go on around 6PM. Saki also have a pair of tickets to giveaway for their Metro show.
An Horse's great sophomore LP, Walls, came out about a year ago in the US via Mom + Pop. Check out a few music videos that they've made from the album, below. Like Maps & Atlases, James Murphy, and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, the twosome also have a coffee addiction (that's okay, we definitely do as well). Along with their music videos you can watch a two-part series titled "Coffee Time."
