Orch pop outfit San Fermin (the brainchild of Nico Muhly associate Ellis Ludwig-Leone) released their debut album last week (9/17) on Downtown Records. Friday night (9/20) the band celebrated the record's birth with a show at Le Poisson Rouge. On album the female vocals are provided by the Lucius sisters, Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, but live they're more than ably picked up by Rae Cassidy and Eliza Bagg (who also plays violin). With strings and horns filling things out, it was a lush affair. Alexandra Stewart opened the evening and pictures from the show are in this post.

The LPR show was also the kickoff to their tour. All dates are listed, along with more pics from the LPR show, below.
