It's been awhile since The Shins (which are essentially James Mercer and some other people these days) have visited Tucson...I feel like they were here in 2007, but the last show I can find was at the Rialto in 2004. Feel free to heckle me in the comments if you know of one more recently.
Anyhow, the Portland-based indie rock act is coming to the Rialto Theatre on October 3rd, and while that seems like a lot of advance notice, I would imagine the show will eventually sell-out, so consider yourself warned. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 am.
