Foxygen at Pianos in 2012 (more by Jessica Amaya)
Retro psych/baroque poppers Foxygen are set to kick off a tour with Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Wampire soon, which hits NYC for the previously discussed Bowery Ballroom show on February 28. That show has since sold out, but you'll get another chance to catch Foxygen when they return to NYC after that tour ends for shows at Knitting Factory on May 14 and Mercury Lounge on May 15. Tickets for the Knit show go on sale Friday (2/8) at 10 AM and tickets for the Merc show go on sale Friday (2/8) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (2/6) at noon. No sign yet if these dates are part of a new North American leg for the band, but they will head over to the UK in June. All upcoming Foxygen dates are listed below.
Speaking of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, they just made a video for "So Good at Being In Trouble" off their new album, II (out now via Jagjaguwar), which stars Christopher Mintz-Plasse (aka McLovin, who you may remember also drums in a band) and was shot by Animal Collective associate Danny Perez.
The UMO video and a list of all Foxygen dates below...
Amongst the many bands playing the Northside Festival this weekend are LA's The Young Rapscallions who are making their NYC debut tonight (6/15) at Glasslands with Lissie Truile and Motive. Advance tickets are still available or you can try buying at the door or using your Northside badge. The band tag themselves as "garage rock" on Facebook and Bandcamp pages but it's definitely not of the Ty Segall/Fidlar variety. You can stream a few tracks below.
You might recognize their drummer -- Chris Mintz-Plasse, who has appeared in a number of films but is best known for playing McLovin in Superbad. So between Young Rapscallions and Mister Heavenly, that's at least two Superbad castmembers with bands. Are their more?
Tonight's their only East Coast show but they've got some more dates this summer back in their home state, all of which are listed below.
