Experimental folkie Xiu Xiu has announced a slew of tour dates with lo-fi acoustic artist tUnE-yArDs in support of his upcoming release, Dear God, I Hate Myself--and they will be stopping by our very own Jackpot Music Hall on March 29. (Okay, it's really far away, but exciting nonetheless.)
Channeling the intimate, warbling tones of D.I.Y-style artists like CocoRosie and Here We Go Magic, both Xiu Xiu and tUnE-yArDs are dynamic members in the lo-fi, experimental folk movement. Ethereal creaks, clatters and ambient noise populate Xiu Xiu front man Jamie Stewart's visceral, intense songwriting, and English songstress Merrill Garbus' project tUnE-yArDs churns out haunting tunes infused with Garbus' hums and ukelele strums.
Don't miss these two acts getting their freak-folk on at the Jackpot on March 29.
