You Should Go See St. Vincent and tUnE-yArDs

Posted By on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 at 11:00 AM

One great thing about Coachella is that you don't have to go to reap the benefits of their lineup, since quite a few of the bands playing the two weekends in Indio will end up playing in Tucson on the way there or back. Sure, we might not get an At The Drive-In show here, but Tucsonans get to see great bands for a far more affordable price and a lowr risk of heat exhaustion. One of the Coachella-adjacent shows you should really make an effort to catch is St. Vincent and tUnE-yArDs, coming to the Rialto on April 17th. You might remember either name from any number of Best of 2011 Music lists from the last month or so (list aggregator Acclaimed Music has St. Vincent's Strange Mercy as the second best reviewed album among American reviewers; tUnE-yArDs' "WhoKill" comes in fourth), they're both signed to glamorous label 4AD, and both make adventurous, creative music that's actually still listenable. Tickets are $19 in advance, and go on sale Friday. You really shouldn't miss this show, unless you're going to Coachella, then you have an excuse.
