Young the Giant Plays the Rialto

Posted By on Tue, Feb 14, 2012 at 9:08 AM

Young the Giant doesn't necessarily make me think "indie rock band." Their music sounds like it draws from classic rock influences with a modern twist. It would be worth it to see this band on Wednesday, as frontman Sameer Gadhia's strong vocals sound even better live than on the studio recordings.

Concert tickets for Young the Giant are selling out in cities all over the country, but it looks like it's not too late for Tucson. Check out the Rialto Theatre's website for tickets.

Here's what Tucson Weekly's Eric Swedlund said about Young the Giant:

The music is grounded in their garage-band roots, but branches out to explore some different territories—power-pop, laden with sunny California melodies; post-garage swagger like the Strokes; and even throwbacks to 1980s alternative, sometimes toward the glammier end of things like the Killers, and sometimes just celebrating the sound of big, bold guitars.
