Freelance Whales @ Webster Hall on December 18th (by Fresh Bread)
Freelance Whales

Freelance Whales spent some time on the road with Fanfarlo at the end of 2009. That culminated in a December 18th show at Webster Hall (pictured above).

More recently, Freelance Whales played Mercury Lounge on January 20th with Animal Tropical and Still Life Still (as part of their residency at the venue).

Freelance Whales will again be opening up for some great bands at bigger venues. On Thursday, February 18th they open for UK's Mumford & Sons at Bowery Ballroom (that show is sold out). Then on March 1st they open for Shout Out Louds at MHOW on March 1st (also sold out).

Shout Out Louds (whose new album Work comes out February 23rd) have added to that date with a North American tour this May. They play May 5th at Webster Hall. Tickets are on sale. All tour dates and the video for the new album's first single are below.

Freelance Whales have been added to the Cymbals Eat Guitars/Bear in Heaven tour happening this March and April, though Freelance Whales do NOT appear to be playing the show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday, April 9th (tickets are on sale).

Freelance Whales were also added to the Bell House's Haiti benefit on Wednesday, January 27th. Tickets are still on sale.

The re-release (or "official" release) of Freelance Whales' Weathervanes on Frenchkiss/Mom + Pop Records comes March 16th. The band was recently a guest on online radio show Snacky Tunes (which is hosted by Finger on the Pulse). Their live session is posted above.
