Pitchfork Nightcap Series: Future Islands, Operators

[LOVE IN THIS CLUB] That’s it, folks: We have the winner of the Best Summer Dance Party of 2014. Future Islands have already been here before. The Baltimore based synth-pop band practically tore the roof down in March, with singer and living meme Samuel Herring trading off pelvic gyrations, hip thrusts and dramatic poses onstage like he’s the world’s coolest middle school drama teacher. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Doug Fir crowd move so hard. Tonight’s show is basically a victory lap for a band already lavished with praise by everyone from Pitchfork (who curated the bill) to David Letterman, but it’s also your first (well, second) chance to hear Operators, the new trio from Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs/Divine Fits’ Dan Boeckner. If their Pickathon show was any indication, this is going to be one sweaty, impassioned mess of a performance. Seasons change, but basement dance parties are always immortal.
