Flight Facilities at LPR - 3/27/13
Australian synth pop duo Flight Facilities are in North America for a tour which hit NYC this past Wednesday (3/27) for a show at Le Poisson Rouge. They were joined by a guest vocalist and Baio (aka Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend, who have tons of stuff going on) opened the show. Pictures from the show are in this post.
Flight Facilities' tour includes another NYC show on Saturday (3/30) at SRB Brooklyn (177 2nd Ave). That one is a FIXED/Verboten party and also includes Tensnake, Light Year, and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P. Tickets for that show are still available.

Australian production duo Flight Facilities (aka Hugo & Jimmy) have been releasing singles with different guest lead vocalists for the past few years. In 2010, they surfaced with "Crave You," a Bird and the Bee-esque indie pop tune with vocals from Giselle Rosselli, followed by 2011's disco-y "Foreign Language" with vocals from Jess Higgs. Then last year saw two more tracks from the band, the poppy "With You" with vocals from Grovesnor, and the darker, expansive cut, "Clair De Lune," which features vocals from Christine Hoberg (that one made a fan out of My Morning Jacket's Tom Blankenship). You can watch the videos for all four singles below.
The duo are on a North American tour now which passes through NYC this week for a show at Le Poisson Rouge on Wednesday (3/27) with Baio (of Vampire Weekend) and Friendly Greg, and again for a FIXED/Verboten party on Saturday (3/30) at SRB Brooklyn (177 2nd Ave) with Tensnake, Light Year and FIXED regulars JDH & Dave P on the boards. Tickets for the LPR show and the FIXED show are on sale now.
All dates are listed, along with those videos, below...
"My Morning Jacket was formed in 1998 in Louisville, Kentucky by singer, songwriter and guitarist Jim James (real name: James Olliges Jr). The original line-up also included three members of the Shelbyville emo-punk band Winter Death Club; namely John McQuade (later known as Johnny Quaid - guitar and vocals), Tom Blankenship (later known as Two Tone Tommy - bass) and J. Roberts (later known as J. Glenn - drums)." [Wikipedia]My Morning Jacket will stay busy this holiday season, with three shows at Port Chester's Capitol Theatre (tickets) that lead up to a New Year's Eve show in Boston, and then the Hurricane Sandy relief benefit at Asbury Park's Paramount Theatre on January 2 (tickets), a show that's hosted by Matt Pinfield and also features Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Joseph Arthur, Nicole Atkins, River City Extension, Tangiers Blues Band and "special guests."
MMJ bassist Tom Blankenship (who also recently helped out with Brooklyn Rock Lottery) gave us his list of Top 10 LPs of 2012. While it includes year-end list mainstays Frank Ocean and Alt-J, there are some surprises as well. You can check out his year-end picks below.
