Friday, March 6: Future Islands with Goner, Berkeley Cafe
From the press release:
Triangle/Triad electro/dance-punk favorites Future Islands return to Raleigh with their Wham City collective colleague Ed Schrader. Raleigh's beloved power pop trio Goner will open the show Friday, March 6th at the Berkeley Café.
Goner rides the success of their latest release, Rock N’ Roll Always Forgets. Having played together for a decade, Goner continuously upgrades their level of performance. It gets louder, it gets faster, this trio’s sound consistently keeps you bouncing. Following this Triangle favorite, Future Islands unleashes their hyper-energetic electro madness once again. They return to the Carolinas straight from European tour ready to share some enthusiasm. The Village Voice describes their sound as full of "...happy happy hooks, wiry dance grooves." Combined with Baltimore comedian Ed Schrader, a well-rounded eclectic evening to remember is guaranteed. For more band details, please visit their web pages at http://www.myspace.com/futureislands and http://www.myspace.com/goner .
$6 cover for 21+, $8 for 18+.
