Baltimore synth-pop heroes Future Islands have recently played a few shows to road test a new batch of songs, undoubtedly what will be the follow-up to 2017’s “The Far Field.” And now, they’re going to perform the new tunes for a hometown audience.

For free.

The band is playing the surprise show at Union Craft Brewing this Saturday, along with Joy Postell, Smoke Bellow and DJs Jason Willett and Jay Buim, the brewery announced today.

Some important details: Gates for the show open at 2 p.m. The music is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m.

Union is advising attendees not to drive to the concert. Instead, they suggest people take the MTA Light Rail to the Woodberry stop or grab an Uber or Lyft. The brewery will be running a shuttle bus to and from the Woodberry stop.

The show is all-ages. And while children are allowed, pets are not. Beers will be $6 a piece, or four for $20, and there will be a gluten-free cider on offer.

So get to the brewery early, crack a few beers and enjoy a packed lineup for what should be a great show to close out the summer.
