Tucson’s Calexico will make a visit to the Phoenix/Valley area for the first time in more than two years when the band plays April 4 at Heritage Square, an outdoor city block in downtown Phoenix that should make for an amazing evening.
Tickets ($20) for the 21-and-over show go on sale Thursday (Jan. 22) at Zia Records, Stinkweeds, Hoodlums, Pizzeria Bianco and TicketWeb. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and it starts at 8 p.m. According to Stateside Presents, the concert will be over before the final light rail departure, which gives people a great chance to test out the newfangled public transit system in our city.
Calexico (follow ’em on Twitter) currently is touring overseas behind 2008’s Carried To Dust, an album to which I didn’t give as much attention as I would have liked when it was released. But I’ve since purchased it on vinyl and have enjoyed taking some well-deserved time with it.
