Legendary reggae band and US psych musicians to play together in June

The Congos, Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras are set to play a collaborative live show at London's Village Underground on 22nd June.

It follows on from the release of their excellent album and film Icon Give Thank/Icon Eye on 9th April. The album found the Stateside psych musicians heading across to St. Catherine, Jamaica, to spend a heavy-lidded few days putting together a record for RVNG Intl's FRKWYS series. If the album's anything to go by the live show should be a thick, swampy, humid delight, all dense guitar and synth from Sun Araw and Gengras and vocals from the Congos.

Tickets are available here.
