The Antlers at the El Rey, Jun 3

Oh Antlers, how I love thee. Thank you for coming all the way from Brooklyn to play your magical set and close out my week. Voice of angels, reverb beyond all reason, three boys, big sound. It all worked. The Antlers “Burst Apart”: Official Site :: iTunes :: Amazon
