The Week In Tours

Always on the quest for the next great live show, we at XLR8R are prone to exhaustion all too often. But when killer bands are at your doorstep constantly, what else are you going to do? Here’s the next installment of soon-to-be long nights.

Brooklyn’s post-indie rockers Grizzly Bear send their dreamy vibes to Coachella, Europe, and right back through the Heartland. Anticon.’s newest avant-rock trio Thee More Shallows backs up its newest LP, The Book of Bad Breaks, while hip-hop mainstays Lifesavas prove they’ve got plenty of juice left. And the always-arty and energetic troopers in Gang Gang Dance prepare to shatter some souls in support of their newest DVD/EP, Retina Riddim. Get some.
