Don't Want to Go to Coachella? Good Thing All These Coachella Bands Are Coming to Phoenix (Pt. 2)
Last week we ran a list of Coachella bands headed to Phoenix around the festival's dates. Well, since then the list has grown, including big name acts like Phoenix, The Postal Service, and Tegan and Sara. So allow us to fill you in with a comprehensive list of Coachella acts headed to the Valley of the Sun.
Phoenix is scheduled to perform Monday, April 8, at Marquee Theatre.
Hanni El Khatib: On Friday, March 8, L.A.-based garage hellion Hanni El-Khatib will join Cold War Kids, Mergence, In the Valley, Diners, Wooden Indian, Stan Devereux and the Funky Suns, and more at New Times' Carnaval Eléctrico festival at Crescent Ballroom.
Hanni El Khatib is scheduled to perform Friday, March 8, at Crescent Ballroom.
Airborne Toxic Event: Critics have always been savage to this band -- but the L.A.-based alt-rockers have a way with their fans. The band comes to Marquee Theatre in Tempe on Monday, April 1.
Dirtyphonics: French EDM duo Dirtyphonics -- who've worked with Skrillex and Marilyn Manson -- will headline a set at the Monarch Theatre in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, April 6.
Phoenix: Coachella mainstagers Phoenix are coming to Tempe; the French indie rockers play Monday, April 8, at Marquee Theatre.
Beach House: Mentioning this doesn't do that much good, as the dream pop band's Tuesday, April 9, show at Crescent Ballroom already has sold out, but it would be much easier to buy a ticket for this show than to deal with shady folks selling Coachella wristbands.
Sigur Ros: This cinematic Icelandic band will swing by Comerica Theatre on Friday, April 12, and the band's orchestral post-rock sounds amazing in concert. Get on it.
Monday, April 15: Coachella-Related Concert Onslaught Day 2013: Unless you're at the festival, you really have no excuse for not going to a show on this day. The xx will be at Marquee Theatre; Poliça will be at The Rhythm Room; and Local Natives will be at Rialto Theatre in Tucson (a much less strenuous road trip than the one to Indio).
Alex Clare: If you're not burned out on "Too Close" yet, you can see this dubstep/soul musician perform at Marquee Theatre on Tuesday, April 16.
