The Shacks

Chicano Batman (who we just caught at FYF and Sasquatch), Khruangbin (who we just caught at Outside Lands), and The Shacks will head out on a tour together this fall. The first leg begins in Wisconsin and ends in Philly, hitting NYC’s Irving Plaza on October 5 and Brooklyn’s Warsaw on October 6, along the way. Tickets for Irving Plaza are on sale now and Warsaw goes on sale Friday, August 18 at 10 AM with various presales starting Wesdnesday (8/16) at 1 PM. All of those dates, including a second leg that begins a few weeks later, are listed below.

The Shacks also play a Meadows fest aftershow at Gramercy Theatre on September 14 with headliners Antibalas (tickets) and also have a small hometown show happening at Mercury Lounge on September 23 with Hiccup and God Tiny (tickets).

The Shacks, who first caught our attention thanks to their allure of their El Michels Affair collaboration “Strange Boy”, released an EP in October via Big Crown. “Strange Effect,” a reinterpretation of the Dave Berry single written by Ray Davies of The Kinks, was on that EP, and now the strange band has a strange video for that “strange” song, and it strangely premieres in this post.
