Don't Want to Go to Coachella? Good Thing All These Coachella Bands Are Coming to Phoenix (Pt. 2)
|Portugal. the Man is schedule to perform Wednesday, April 17, at Marquee Theatre.|
Rodriguez: If this singer/songwriter's name doesn't ring a bell, the documentary Searching for Sugar Man may turn you into a fan. The singer will be performing at the gorgeous Orpheum Theatre on Thursday, April 18, and will perform in Tucson the following day.
The Postal Service: Give Up, Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello's team- up LP as the Postal Service, turns 10 this year, and the long-inactive duo is getting back together to celebrate (and push copies of Sub Pop's upcoming deluxe edition). Their stop at Coachella comes in addition to a local date, on Thursday, April 18, at Comerica Theatre
The Gaslight Anthem: These blue-collar Jersey punks were a surprising addition to the Coachella lineup, and they always put on a fantastic show. We highly recommend seeing them at Marquee Theatre on Tuesday, April 23, for a dose of Springsteen-influenced rock.
Father John Misty: The kooky former drummer of Fleet Foxes will return to the Valley a couple of weeks after Coachella, appearing at Crescent Ballroom on Thursday, May 4.
Tegan and Sara: You have to wait a little bit to catch Tegan and Sara in Phoenix. They perform in Tucson on Sunday, April 14, but it won't be until Tuesday, September 10, that they grace the Valley at Comerica Theatre. It'll be worth the wait though -- they'll be opening for fun., fronted by Arizona's favorite son and hitmaker, Nate Ruess.
That's all we know for now. We have our fingers crossed for Lou Reed, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse, Grizzly Bear, Knife Party, Franz Ferdinand, Violent Femmes, Vampire Weekend, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Wu-Tang Clan, and more to schedule dates in Arizona.
