PIXIES – LONDON RESIDENCY

Pixies are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa during a London residency this fall. Dates, tickets, and more info HERE. They’re also touring North America with Weezer and Sleigh Bells this summer.

SUFJAN STEVENS

There are still some tickets available to Saturday night (4/21)’s “Live From Here with Chris Thile” at Town Hall in NYC, Sufjan Stevens appearance included. Saturday also happens to be Record Store Day, so you can pick up the new Mystery of Love EP while you’re out. Sufjan has no other announced shows at the moment.

RADIOHEAD

Radiohead are in the midst of playing a string of shows in South America. If you can get yourself to Brazil by Sunday, tickets appear to still be available to that one and to the show they play in Colombia three days later, though if you’re reading this, then there’s a good chance Montreal, Columbus, Cincinnati and Philadelphia are easier options — all with tickets still available according to the band’s site. All other dates of their Summer 2018 North American tour (four nights at MSG included) are sold out.

MAZZY STAR

The fact that Mazzy Star recently played a benefit and announced an EP and is playing three shows in Australia in June gives us Hope that more is on the way.
