Future Islands love NYC and will spend V-Day with lucky New Yorkers who managed to score tickets to this intimate show, where hopefully they’ll play a bunch of songs from their upcoming LP, The Far Field.
Night Train w/ Wyatt Cenac @ Littlefield (2 shows)

Benny, Shane Torres, Dina Hashem, Chanel Ali, and more; and 10 PM with Brooks Wheelan, Claudia Cogan, Alzo Slade, Violet Gray and more. Both are sold out, but you can take your chances in the standy line.
