Moon King at Cameo - 9/15/12
The Hundred in the Hands played their last NYC show for a while -- before they head out on a European tour next month -- at Cameo Gallery on Saturday (9/15). The show was with Doldrums related project Moon King (aka Daniel Woodhead, Maddy Wilde and their live band), who released their impressive Obsession I EP last month. Pictures from Saturday's show are in this post.
The show was one of three in NYC for Moon King this month. They also played Big Snow on Friday (9/14) and will be at Pianos on Tuesday (9/18) with Tropic of Pisces, Neighbors, and Cookies. Tickets for that show are still available. Moon King will also be back in town for CMJ this October. It hasn't been announced what shows they'll play yet, but we do know that Doldrums, who open for Austra at their sold out MHOW show this Wednesday (9/19), will play the Windish showcase at Mercury Lounge on October 17 with Hundred Waters, Strange Talk, High Highs, Duologue, Mozart's Sister, and DIANA.
