Asobi Seksu

Asobi Seksu headlined the Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Thursday night (4/2). The great triple-bill featured both Crocodiles and Tyvek as openers. The pictures in this post, of the headliner only, are from that show.

Currently supporting their new album Hush, out now on Polyvinyl, the band has two more NYC shows scheduled in the near future. The first has them acting as opener for Yann Tiersen at Irving Plaza on April 16th. The next is a headlining gig at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 13th. The Brooklyn show is part of the Northside Festival. That means badgeholders can try their luck at getting in, or you can buy tickets which go on Am Ex presale at noon.
