At the Monkey House.
Angioplasty Media presents
Future Islands came through the Monkey House back in 08 with ADVENTURE and NOSEBLEED ISLAND for a wonderful ‘ ADVENTURE ISLAND’ Tick Tick show. So so fun. Since then they have toured relentlessly, signed to THRILL JOCKEY, slept at the 5th Element with dozens of other musicians/ bands, and stayed rad as hell.
Lower Dens is the new moniker for folk songwriter Jana Hunter’s band, which has actually been around much longer, only playing under Hunter’s name.
But it seems like Hunter, with bassist Geoff Graham and drummer Abe Sanders, is making an effort at reintroducing the group to the world. Hunter, the solo songwriter, has done excellent work exacting a certain mood, a meditative, richly textured slow-folk as pretty and calm as the woods at dawn.
DJ DP will be killing it before/ in between / and after each of the bands sets.
