Polica @ Rough Trade - 2/19/16
Polica are a week away from releasing their new album United Crushers (on Mom + Pop) but first they decided to play some intimate pre-release shows. There's a sold out gig in Chicago tonight (2/22) and they hit Brooklyn's Rough Trade this past Friday (2/19, also sold out). The set was mostly stuff off the new album, which all sounded great. Channy also told the crowd that she had a baby not long ago (that elicited cheers) and playing shows is like the only time she gets out of the house. (Then she said she's told that story a bunch of times and this was going to be the last time she told it.)
JM Airis opened. More pictures of both sets, including one of Polica's setlist, are below. Polica will return to NYC when their proper tour hits the larger Warsaw on April 23 with MOTHXR (tickets).
