Summer is festival season in Milwaukee, but the just-announced New Pornographers show June 12 at Pabst Theater is a veritable mini-festival of top-flight indie pop. The Canadian power-pop institution—who will visit here soon after the release of the forthcoming Together, due in May—also features San Francisco folkies The Dodos and the winning, swinging ’60s Seattle duo The Dutchess And The Duke, which has been propelled to the Pabst after two successful shows last year at Club Garibaldi. Taken together, the three bands form one what will surely be one of the best local bills of the year, especially for a ticket price of only $22.50. Tickets go on sale at noon Friday. In the meantime, here's the band's new single, "Your Hands (Together)."
