As mentioned, Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) is heading out on tour with Born Gold in support of her new album, Visions, out February 21 via 4AD. That tour includes the previously mentioned NYC shows happening on March 23 at Mercury Lounge and March 24 at Glasslands. The Mercury Lounge show sold out and they just added an early show at the same venue that day (3/23). Tickets for the early Mercury Lounge show go on sale Friday (1/20) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/18) at noon. Tickets for the Glasslands show are still on sale.
