Hey all,

We’re playing at Il Motore tonight in Montreal opening for Divine Fits, the brand-new band featuring Dan from Handsome Furs/Wolf Parade, Britt from Spoon, and Sam from New Bomb Turks! We’re on at 11 and Divine Fits are on at midnight… It’s an official Osheaga afterparty.

I think it’s sold out. If it makes you feel any better, check out this animated GIF:
