William Cashion (Future Islands)
6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show
William Cashion is best known as the bassist in synthpop giants Future Islands, one of the most formidable acts in indie rock. After making a splash with their 2014 performance on the Late Show with David Letterman, their anthemic brand of new wave has enchanted audiences at shows and festivals across the globe. He’s shaped their sound from the beginning, crafting bass lines that cut through thick curtains of euphoric synths.
Now William is striking out on his own, making a collection of meditative ambient pieces that take after Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, Robin Guthrie, and Suzanne Ciani. As part of our Season 5 opening weekend, he presents the NYC debut of this new body of work, which he calls “postcard music”, music that doesn’t have a beginning or an end, music to listen to with your eyes closed.
