The Antlers @ Music Hall (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Antlers @ MHOW

As you know, Explosions in the Sky just announced a big tour that includes an October 3rd show at Wellmont Theatre in NJ. That show now also includes an opening set by the Antlers! Tickets are on sale (at noon). Wye Oak are opening other dates on the Explosions tour (and it's possible that the Antlers are opening all the dates around then that Wye Oak aren't).

The Antlers are currently out west on tour. They play Sasquatch this weekend. Last week they played sold out shows at both Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg. By the time the Wellmont show gets here, they will have also already played Pukkelpop in Belgium, Greenman in Wales, and Austin City Limits (in Austin). All tour dates are below...
