Fleet Foxes play the Moore Theater tonight, Tuesday May 2nd and tomorrow, Wednesday May 3rd. Right now it appears the shows are sold out but as always you might get lucky if you keep trying here. The Seattle band releases album two, Helplessness Blues on Tuesday night, so I’d expect to hear new songs on each night. If you head on over to their Sub Pop Records page you can download the title track for free! For both shows fellow Seattle group, the Cave Singers open.

On Thursday evening, May 5th Battles hit the Crocodile. Gloss Drop, their follow-up to Mirrored, sees a release date of June 7th. The new CD’s going to have a guest appearance by Gary Numan. I think the Crocodile will be an extra cool venue to see this band – the stage is long enough to allow the band to stretch out and go mental.
Have a listen to their new song, “Ice Cream”:
