I'm not usually one to say "I told you so," but the news is pretty good this time around.
In my commentary about the residual Tucson shows that come from the Coachella weekends, I mentioned a number of bands that will be making stops in Southern Arizona before, between or after those two weekends in Indio, and another band just added a show.
Band of Horses announced via their Facebook page today that they'll be playing the Rialto on April 22. The Tucson stop is among dozens of other shows that make up the band's tour across most of the U.S. The announcement doesn't indicate which bands will be supporting.
Additionally, the Silversun Pickups have announced a stop at the Pima County fair on April 19, just a few days before the Band of Horses show. While the Silversun Pickups aren't playing Coachella this year, having the shows so close together should make for an interesting week for the indie rock crowd.
Tickets to Band of Horses can be picked up here when they go up for sale on Feb. 22, and admission to the Silversun Pickups show is included in the admission to the fair.
