Future Islands played 7 new songs at House of Vans Chicago’s opening night (pics, video, setlist)

With the original Brooklyn location open for five years (and one in London too), House of Vans has opened a second U.S. skate park/music venue, this one in Chicago. Future Islands christened the spot on Friday night (2/3), as part of a two-day Grand Opening celebration that also featured an open-house community even on Saturday (2/4). This was also the first show for Future Islands since announcing new album The Far Field, and they played seven of its 12 songs, including first single “Ran,” as well as favorites like “Balance,” “Spirit” and hit “Seasons (Waiting on You)” peppered in. You can watch live video of them playing The Far Field‘s “Ran” and “Aladdin” and other songs, along with the House of Vans Chicago setlist, below.

The night also featured reunited ’90s hip hop stars Digable Planets and rising Chicago rapper Noname. Pictures from their sets, and more of Future Islands, are in the gallery above.
