Handsome Furs play Great Scott Monday (RSL tix giveaway!)

RSL Recommendation:
Going out Monday Night -
The Scene: Great Scott in Allston

The Handsome Furs are Magic!
Dan Boeckner (of Wolf Parade) & wife, Alexei Perry

Welcome to the Canadian Counter Culture! Wolf Parade, at the core of this movement, have been one of my favorite bands for the last three years. Related, Handsome Furs (click for videos), are certainly a bit more than a spin-off project - they carry much of the same creativity and howl thanks to Dan Boeckner - who is a member in both bands. The last two-and-a-half years have been a flurry of fiery creativity for Boeckner who has worked with Wolf Parade's Spencer Krug to pen and perform songs from two (sensational) albums.

Boeckner's Handsome Furs side work with wife Alexei Perry has been anything but boring. There too, Broeckner has stormed the castle gates... Handsome Furs have released two records as well: Plague Park (RSL Best of 2007 Selection) and 2009's Face Control have proven this dynamic duo to be much more than a passing fancy.

CLOSE TO SELLING OUT! I conversed with our friends over at Great Scott and have learned this one is close to selling out. Here's your chance to see an irresistible live show!
