For their part, the Furs are eager to keep returning to places where few other Western bands ever venture, to maintain the friendships they’ve forged and the fanbases they’ve built. The tours sharpen the couple’s perspective on their art, their politics, and the Handsome Furs’ existence itself. Says Boeckner, “Instead of going into this band being like ‘We’re against this! We’re against that!’, it’s, ‘We’re against these things, but we also feel happy and positive that we’re able to make music.'” [National Post]

The Handsome Furs are currently on a massive tour that hit Bowery Ballroom back on 8/18, and visited Austin, Texas for two shows yesterday (8/26). The first one happened inside Waterloo Records. The second was last night at Mohawk. We have pictures from both in this post.

And though we don’t know the venue yet, we do know that Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry will be back in NYC in October for CMJ UPDATE: Handsome Furs are not actually coming to CMJ anymore. All tour dates and more Austin pictures below…
