Florida's The Band in Heaven will release their debut album, Caught in a Summer Swell, via Decades Records on September 17.

Before the record comes out, The Band in Heaven will be in NYC for a couple shows: Cameo Gallery on August 2 with Black Taxi (tickets); and a second, TBA show on August 3. They've got a couple Florida dates too, and all dates are listed below.

Budos Band @ the 5th Ave Street Fair, 2007
Fifth Avenue Record Fair

Park Slope's annual 5th Avenue Street Fair is Sunday, May 16th. It runs from Sterling to 12th Street and starts at noon. Not your typical corn dog and lemonade street fair (though they do have that stuff), the Brooklyn event features multiple stages of live music including two hosted by Southpaw which is also home to the day's Punk & Underground Record Fair (10am-6pm, $5 entry). Southpaw's stages, assuming it doesn't rain, will be in front of Southpaw, and at the Gate (5th Ave & 3rd St). If it rains, music moves inside Southpaw where the record fair will also be taking place.

While on Fifth Ave, you can also stop by Union Hall (season finale of tearing the veil of maya at 7 / indie rock all stars cover tusk by fleetwood mac at 9), and walk a block down to 4th Ave to check out new venue Rock Shop.

Flyers and music lineups (which aren't 100% consistent with the flyers) below...
