Whether on Letterman or at HumBrews, Future Islands’ Lead Singer is a Better Dancer Than You (VIDEO)

In an attempt to influence your Monday funtimes planmaking process, your Lowdown would like to present as Exhibit A the accompanying clip of synthpop band Future Islands performing on the Late Show with David Letterman about a month ago. Please note the movements and vocal inflections of lead singer Samuel Herring. What you are witnessing is what is commonly referred to as “going for it." Do you ever go for it like this? Seems like a good thing to do sometimes. Perhaps if we attend the Future Islands show at HumBrews Monday evening, some of what they got will transfer from the stage into our sponge-like souls. Then we can all go for it. Together. Forever.
