Operators To Open For Future Islands In Sioux Falls

Operators

The August 11 Future Islands show in Sioux Falls just added a bit of indie rock royalty to its lineup. Operators, the new project from Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits), will be on the road with Future Islands for the entire month of August.

There isn't much known about Operators at this point, but from what I can hear from their first single, "True," their music will most closely resemble Boeckner's work with Handsome Furs. And since I'm a huge fan of each and every one of Boeckner's projects, my anticipation for this show is now at an all-time high. If you haven't purchased a ticket yet, I'd highly recommend clicking here and spending a modest $10 for what will certainly be one of the best shows to come through town since I've lived here.

I've compiled a special "Best of Boeckner" playlist on Spotify to celebrate the announcement. Click here to listen. And if you haven't listened to Future Islands yet, check out their new album, Singles.
