Earlier this summer, Pitchfork launched Nightcap, a series of late night shows across the United States. Following successful performances at the Studio at Webster Hall in NYC (with Majical Cloudz and Dutch E Germ) and Lincoln Hall in Chicago (with Real Estate and the Walkmen’s Peter Matthew Bauer), Nightcap heads to Portland, Oregon.

On August 16, Doug Fir Lounge will host Future Islands. Now, we’re happy to announce that they will be joined by Dan Boeckner’s new band Operators. It’s an official aftershow for MusicFestNW. The show is sold out.

Pitchfork Nightcap is sponsored by Jim Beam Bourbon.

On August 31, Pitchfork Nightcap will host Metz and Posse at the Crocodile in Seattle.

Here’s a poster for the Future Islands/Operators Nightcap show:
