We’ve got a pair of tickets to see Department of Eagles and The Cave Singers at Cafe Du Nord on Sunday, January, 25th. The group, which includes Daniel Rossen (also of Grizzly Bear), landed on numerous “Best of ’08” lists with the atmospheric folk-pop of In Ear Park. The band also has some history with the Bay; their debut was released by local label American Dust and an early live performance was a session at KDVS.
