The Week In Tours

South by Southwest and Miami’s Winter Music conference have wrapped, so touring pheromones are in the air. Fortunately, a clutch of killer bands will soon be trekking across the country to free us from winter’s death-grip.
Detroit’s Adult. takes anxiety-prone electro-punk to faces everywhere, supporting their harshest release yet, Why Bother?. The post-rock giants Tortoise give fans that missed their packed 2006 shows a second chance. Kranky Records’ psyche-pop troupe Deerhunter parades its transcendent instrumentation across North America, while Trans Am follows-up on their trippiest offering, Sex Change, out now on Thrill Jockey. Rad.
