photos by Dominick Mastrangelo


Ireland’s Villagers completed a North American tour in Montreal on Wednesday night, but will head back over to the US again to play a string of select dates that will include a pair in NYC. Tickets are on sale for Villagers at Knitting Factory on 11/2, as well as Mercury Lounge on 11/3 where Conor J. O’Brien will be supported by Erland & The Carnival.

The Montreal show was part of Pop Montreal and pictures from that show adorn this post. A review is HERE, but as you can see from the pictures and the video below, it was actually a solo show by Conor O’Brien.

Villagers released their Mercury Prize nominated debut Becoming The Jackal via Domino earlier this year and recently dropped the Ship of Promises 7″ digital single.
