Rockabilly for the 21st century? Rockin’ in the graveyard!
The title song from Foxygen’s Jagjaguwar debut, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, receives its psychedelic video treatment by director William Doyle of Neighborhood Watch Films. Singer Sam France’s frenetic energy is perfectly captured in Calvary Cemetery in Queens.
That same energy has sidelined the band for a bit – Sam’s accident at First Avenue in Minneapolis this past July found him fracturing his tibia and fibula and undergoing surgery. The Foxygen camp reports that doctors are confident he will be able to perform in time for Austin City Limits and Foxygen’s October dates in New York City. All fall tour dates preceding ACL have been cancelled, and an updated list is below.
10/06/13 Austin, TX – Austin City Limits
10/13/13 Austin, TX – Austin City Limits
10/21/13 New York, NY – Bowery Ballroom
10/22/13 Brooklyn, NY – Music Hall of Williamsburg
