Les Savy Fav: Let's Get Out of Here
Les Savy Fav is Tim Harrington (vocals), Seth Jabour (guitar), Butler (bass) and Harrison Haynes (drums).  Since forming in 1995, Les Savy Fav has grown into a band considered among the godfathers of the independent rock music scene, releasing three albums (3/5 in 1997, The Cat &The Cobra in 1999, Go Forth in 2001) and a singles compilation (Inches in 2004).  In 1999 Butler started the Frenchkiss Record label with the goal in mind to release their own records.  The achievement of these records helped put Frenchkiss on the map. The label has since been called home by some of the most celebrated artists of the last 2 decades including The Hold SteadyThe AntlersPassion PitThe DrumsBloc PartyThe Dodos, and Local Natives.  

On Saturday the FKR20 party will feature sets from The Dodos (who will be playing Visiter in its entirety and at additional dates listed below), Eleanor FriedbergerDiet CigLes Savy FavDrowners (playing their first show in 3 years), and newcomers to the label Twen.  The night will also feature special guests and, as part of the celebration, Frenchkiss  Records will be taking over Elsewhere’s art space curating it with art from the label’s roster. The first band is on at 6pm and tickets are on sale now here

FKR20 will also be celebrated with the release of a handful of catalog reissues.  This series kicked off with the March re-release of Hospice, the seminal album from The Antlers with more to be announced.  

Current and upcoming 2019 releases include the long-awaited return of The Hold Steady whose first album in 5 years,Thrashing Thru The Passion, was released this summer and Twen’s debut Awestruck which came out in September.
