Operators played Handsome Furs @ Baby’s All Right (pics, videos, setlist)

Handsome Furs broke up back when Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry got divorced, and Dan started making similar synth-punk songs with his new band Operators (and eventually got back with Wolf Parade too). Handsome Furs are still defunct, but Operators decided to do two special shows this year where they’d be playing full sets of Handsome Furs songs. The first was at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right last night (12/13). Alexei’s presence was missed of course, but it was still a real treat to hear Dan sing old faves like “Legal Tender,” “All We Want Baby Is Everything,” “Hate This City,” “Cheap Music,” and more, and Operators had them sounding pretty damn close to the originals (the crowd was loving it too). Charly Bliss opened with a DJ set. Pictures (including one of the setlist) are in the gallery above. Watch a couple video clips below.

The next and final Operators Present Handsome Furs show is in Toronto on Saturday (12/15).
