Avant-garde violinist/songwriter Sudan Archives leads a live desert experience from magical Joshua Tree, CA. Into it.

Scottish post rock gods Mogwai to perform their upcoming album As The Love Continues live from Glasgow. Tickets on sale now.

Emo heroes Jimmy Eat World to perform three of their catalog albums in full (including Futures, an album from the past). Lead my skeptic sight to the table and the light.

Tennis, anyone?

Papa M (David Pajo of Slint/Tortoise/Will Oldham/Zwan/etc) performs live from The Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur. Indie rock forever.
