This year we are performing once again at the Iceland Airwaves festival. Our schedule has turned out pretty hectic! Looking forward to an extended weekend of lugging our instruments in the frosty rain all over downtown. I’m not kidding. This is going to be so much fun.
To kick things off, we’re playing on Wed, Oct. 12 at 5PM at the Kimi Records/KEXP off-venue showcase at KEX Hostel. This will be broadcast live by KEXP, both on the air in Seattle and streaming on their website. So no matter where you are, you can listen! (5PM in Iceland is 10AM on the US west coast.) RSVP to the Facebook event invite to remind yourself. Other bands playing this show include Gus Gus, Samaris, and Retro Stefson. Worth checking out!
Later that evening at 7:30PM we head over to Barabara, which is Reykjavík’s only gay bar. Like all off-venue shows (with the exception maybe of the Vesterbæjarlaug swimming pool shows?) entrance is free.
The next day, Thur, Oct. 13 at 9:30PM (was 10PM), perfectly timed for you to catch us while on your way out the door to some hot on-venue events, we close up the line-up at the Reykjavík Backpackers hostel.
Come Friday, Oct. 14 we will be playing at 4:30PM at Kaffistofan, which is a cool student-related art gallery at Hverfisgata 44 (one street down from the main drag, Laugavegur).
And then, if you can manage to stay up past midnight, at 1:10PM Friday night (technically Saturday morning) we play our on-venue show at Amstersdam.
Then on Sunday perhaps you’ll find us performing somewhere strange and spontaneous as we galavant around the city with a film crew from La Blogothèque.
