There's been a lot of great concert news here in Tucson lately, but I'm probably as excited for the Gillian Welch show coming to the Fox Theatre on June 1st as any show I can remember. Maybe the Freestyle Explosion, but that's about it. However, Gillian Welch and her sidekick David Rawlings might be two of the most talented Americana performers alive and they haven't played Tucson terribly often (they played an auditorium show at the U of A in 1999?). Listen to her records on Spotify or something. If alt-country (or whatever they call it these days) is your thing at all, you'll want to cough up the $25 or $32.50 for a ticket to this concert.
Tickets go sale Friday to the general public, although there's a presale on Thursday if you use the password "REESE" on the Fox Theatre's website.
