As mentioned, Seattle’s finest surf quartet, La Luz, are opening for Of Montreal at the second of two shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg (October 28). Tickets are currently on AmEx presale and go on sale to the general public Friday (8/2) at noon. From that show on, La Luz are on the rest of the Of Montreal tour. Hopefully, they’ll add a small headlining show in NYC before they start. They were just terrific when they played NYC earlier this month, and if you’re going to see Of Montreal on this tour, definitely make a point to arrive early.

Meanwhile, La Luz have let it be known they have signed with Hardly Art and the label will release their debut album, It’s Alive, on October 15. The record contains a few songs from the Damp Face, but neither side of their recent 7″ on Suicide Squeeze. You can download “Big Big Blood” from the album above and stream it below.
