Citysol 2007 (MORE)

As has been said, and will probably be said some more, the idea of Les Savy Fav being added to the bill of Arcade Fire & LCD Soundsystem @ Randall's Island is pretty awesome (and true). Tickets for the October 6th show are still on sale - as are tickets to Les Savy Fav's other two upcoming NYC shows.

In related news: I posted something last week about upcoming Metric shows, and how Emily haines contributed some piano (yes, just piano) to the new Les Savy Fav record. Well, since then her tour dates became more official and announced, so those (along with the latest Arcade Fire tour dates) are below....
