We’ve been fans of the French Kicks for a long time, and we’re excited to announce that Josh Wise of said band will be opening for Eleanor Friedberger on 24 March 2012. Josh’s most recent non-French-Kicks project, “Above Ground Episodes,” pairs an eight-song LP with a DVD of experimental visual “episodes” organized in a loose narrative sequence. All of the packaging artwork was silkscreened and painted by hand in Wise’s apartment (see above for proof). Listen to a track here.

You can buy tickets online (only $5!) or at the door. Doors at 8 pm; show at 8:30 pm. Note that the show will be in the front of the Crowley Theater, with no seating.

(Also, if you didn’t see the Austinist interview with Eleanor Friedberger, check it out — she discusses her Marfa residency, New York, her upcoming record, and more. And we just got a sneak peek at the Eleanor posters, designed by the awesomely talented Thumb Projects: they’re amazing. We’ll have them in the shop by Friday.)
