After SXSW earlier this year some people were declaring Islands as the best performers at the festival. Two weeks ago there was a similiar buzz after the six-piece band performed at the Siren Music Festival.
Now you can catch them at the next New York x New York party from New York Magazine. In addition to Islands, you’ll also be able to scarf down BBQ and beer for a price of $25. That price also gets you a 46-issue subscription to the magazine.
