Honestly, there is very little to say about Operators, the yet-to-be-formally-announced new project of Dan Boeckner and Sam Brown. A couple shows, and only three other dates on the calendar in May, and no set date for their debut release... In fact, we were curious enough to make sure they made their Portland debut right here at Pickathon.

"Operators is its own beast, and that beast is formidable: a flurry of funky keyboard riffs, rumbling programmed beats, incessant low-end, and pelvic thrusts, all set to the classic rock chord changes and gravel-throated melodies that have become Boeckner's signature. It's a natural progression from Divine Fits, especially in today's stylistic climate, but who'd have thunk it back when Boeckner was first howling "Shine A Light" with Wolf Parade?" - Brooklyn Vegan

Stay tuned for more info about this new project... which we expect will surface in the coming month(s).
