Handsome Furs at the Great Escape in May (more by Tim Griffin)
Handsome Furs

The Handsome Furs 8/18 show at Webster Hall has been moved to Bowery Ballroom. All tickets will be honored, and are still available. THEESatisfaction have also been added as the opener.

Last time I noticed THEESatisfaction's name it was on a bill with Handsome Furs' Sub Pop labelmate Shabazz Palaces. Well, it was also just announced that THEESatisfaction, who have collaborated with Shabazz, have signed to Sub Pop too...

THEESatisfaction, the self-produced "lo-fi rebel hiphop" duo comprised of Seattle's Stasia Irons and Catherine Harris-White, (thankfully) accepted Sub Pop's proposal to join our eclectic family! To celebrate this union, they will be headlining the Vera Project stage at Capitol Hill Block Party today July 22nd. The group, who has released five EPs to date as well as contributed to label-mates Shabazz Palaces latest release Black Up, are expected to release their debut full-length album early next year, For now, the kind women of THEESatisfaction have decided to give you the track Do You Have the Time for free! - Sub Pop

You can download that song below.

The Bowery show is part of a longer international Handsome Furs tour that includes Parlovr on some dates. Parlovr meanwhile play Mercury Lounge tonight (7/25).
