Brazilian Girls with Man Man and The Phenomenal Handclap Band at Governors Island


On October 2nd, Brazilian Girls play the Beach at Governors Island, with Man Man and The Phenomenal Handclap Band. Over the course of two previous studio albums and countless all-nighters at their East Village clubhouse, Nublu, Brazilian Girls have established a reputation as New York’s premier international party band. To attend a Brazilian Girls show—with its blur of beats, colors and textures—is to experience something like time travel: No one else is quite as capable of making a few hours fly by like a few minutes.

Man Man
With Rabbit Habits, their Anti- Records debut, and the natural extension of their body of work begun with The Man In A Blue Turban With A Face and continued with Six Demon Bag, Man Man bring their incomparable vision to bear. Successfully capturing the raw spirit and essence of a Man Man live show, Rabbit Habits is the end product of the efforts of a band who are earnestly saying something important, even if you can’t always make out the words over the blare of the sousaphone.
