The 'everyone high-fiving everyone at once' band Fang Island have had their share of ups and downs already this year. They released their self-titled debut in February, becoming SubEx darlings and earning Pitchfork's coveted 'best new music' designation in the process. Then came March when the band's brand new van was stolen just prior to embarking on their tour. Undeterred, the tour continued, with the band recently announcing a handful of new dates in July opening for the Flaming Lips.
Lucky for us, however, that we get a chance this Wednesday to see Fang Island in the more intimate confines of Rubber Gloves in Denton before the slew of arena dates with the Lips begins. Should be the perfect venue to see what is perhaps our favorite new band of 2010.
Oh yea, and their album is still available here, and for under $7 it is a genuine steal.
