We already told you how stoked we were that Deerhunter had a new disc on the way. As you can imagine, the news that the band would making more than one New York appearance this summer and fall really put us over the edge.

The first appearance(s) start tonight with a free show over on Pier 54 as part of the River Rocks series. Gates are at 6, Real Estate opens at 7, followed by Deerhunter. The band will then make their way over to Brooklyn, and play a DJ set at Glasslands to close out the night. The band will then return to play an October 15th date at Webster Hall (also with Real Estate) in support of the new record, Halcyon Digest. Tickets for that show are on sale now. No matter which way you cut it, that's a lot of Deerhunter goodness, and if you're in the big apple, you should certainly count yourself among the lucky.

Meanwhile, Bradford Cox continues to post even more new material to the band's blog, including the recently posted instrumental "Heatwave". Title seems appropriate, no? Check it out below.
