The Explorers Club Prepare For A February Expedition, Perform For Athens Soundies

As THE EXPLORERS CLUB head out next week on the first full-scale tour in support of its 2008 Dead Oceans release Freedom Wind, we’re pleased to share the band’s recent performance of album track “Don’t Forget The Sun” for Athens Soundies.

The performance was scheduled last-minute on a rare, freezing cold day in Athens, Ga., as the band rolled into town for a show. Bundled-up tight and banded together in an abandoned art school building, The Explorers Club brought a warm California wind to a mid-January evening in Athens.
