One of the leading American cutting-edge bands, The Walkmen, are coming to Tel
Aviv for a show on August 14 at the Barbie Club.
Over the course of 10 years and
seven albums, including this year’s acclaimed Heaven, the New York-based quintet
has evolved into the most respected band on the alternative rock landscape.
Their dense and swirling music, led by explosive vocalist Hamilton Leithauser,
draws from a broad palette and influences as diverse as The Velvet Underground,
The Cure, Television and New Order.
Their show could likely be the high point of
a truly bursting season of visiting musical talent.
