Tomorrow Night The Bowery Ballroom Becomes Fang IslandMarch 10th, 2011
Fang Island—founded in Providence, R.I., and based in Brooklyn—has a big sound. And it’s no wonder with three guitarists, Jason Bartell, Chris Georges and Nicholas Andrew Sadler, to accompany bassist Michael Jacober and drummer Marc St. Sauveur. The band released two EPs, Day of the Great Leap and Sky Gardens, before their debut full-length, the well-received Fang Island, came out about a year ago. And the quintet (above, doing “Sideswiper” for Seattle’s KEXP FM) plays The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night. Welcome them home.
