Incoming: Xiu Xiu with tUnE-yArDs

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.
