Ah to jump on a plane and fly to Belgium tonight. Even Liars need a break once in a while, getting out of the studio to flex their musical muscles. They will be taking a break from working on their follow-up to Sisterworld to curate the Sonic City festival in De Kreun, Belgium, taking place this weekend, from October 28-30th. The Liars play October 29th, and have landed bands such as friends Oneida, Washed Out, Factory Floor, and legends like Chris & Cosey, Melvins and Legendary Pink Dots to round out this amazing bill.

Sonic City, now in its fourth year, has been curated by stunning acts from Deerhoof to Dälek in the past, and takes place at De Kreun in Kortrijk, Belgium. This year, it opens October 28th with the European première of the movie KARP, a documentary about the visceral, underground band Kill All Redneck Pricks, directed by William Badgley.
