Operators

Saturday, July 21st at 11:30 P.M.

Operators will be arriving at Fishers’ Paradise via Barcelona and Belgrade – part of their June European tour. Formed in 2013, the band features Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Divine Fits) on vocals, guitar, and synths and is joined by New Bomb Turks and Divine Fits drummer Sam Brown and electro-wiz Devojka. Produced by Graham Walsh (METZ, Alvvays, Viet Cong), much of Blue Wave, their latest album, was recorded in a 1850s-vintage barn in southern Ontario. Pitchfork magazine describes their sound as “an extension of the gruff, melody-driven rock Dan Boeckner’s been making for a decade, granted an electronic bent and license to hit the dancefloor.”
