What’s fall without a few shades of disco for the sonic palate? Last time we caught Hercules and Love Affair live, the eight-piece band, led by Andy Butler, turned the venue into a room of dance mayhem that DFA head honcho James Murphy would most surely have approved of. With its self-titled debut tearing up charts, the band and its many keyboards are set to hit the road again this fall. Given that some shows on the last round of dates sold out, you’d best not sleep on these performances:

10/17 Chicago, IL: Metro
10/18 Toronto, ON: Opera House
