Long-running indie/grunge blenders Manchester Orchestra returned last year with their best album in a while, A Black Mile to the Surface, and they'll be supporting it on tour all spring and summer. They're playing a bunch of festivals, including NYC's Governors Ball (the same day as The Gaslight Anthem playing The '59 Sound, Japandroids, and The Menzingers). The day before that, they have a New Haven show with their old pal Kevin Devine and indie rock newcomers Vundabar. All dates and tickets HERE.
Fresh off playing two weekends of Coachella (one of which included a Cardi B appearance), Migos have tons of other upcoming 2018 dates in support of this year's Culture II. They play NYC's Panorama (which Cardi B just dropped off due to her pregnancy), but before that, they'll be in the tristate area for Hot 93.7's Hot Jam in Hartford with Russ, Lil Xan, and Bazzi. All of their many tour dates are HERE.
MY BLOODY VALENTINE
Shoegaze icons My Bloody Valentine will be back in the U.S. this summer shredding guitars and eardrums for a short tour around FYF Fest. Tickets for MBV's shows in NYC, Oakland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle and St. Paul, MN are on BrooklynVegan Presale till 10 PM local time tonight (4/26).
One half of the legendary Simon & Garfunkel, Art Garfunkel has been touring all year and will continue to do so through late September. He's hitting tons of US cities (and a few in Europe), including NYC's Town Hall on June 29. He also has a couple shows just outside of NJ (Westchester and NJ) in May. All dates HERE. Paul Simon is also going on a farewell tour this year.
Snail Mail's debut album will be out June 8 and they've just released the video for "Heat Wave" that puts head member Lindsey Jordan's ice hockey stills on display -- she played in high school. "I hadn't actually been on skates since I quit the high school team junior year, so immediately jumping into shooting this was equal parts difficult and super fun," Lindsey says. You can watch that below. Having just played both weekends of Coachella, Snail Mail are on tour as we speak, playing Norman, OK's Norman Music Festival tonight, and Lindsey and crew will be in NYC for Northside Festival. Updated dates and ticket links are here.
