tUnE-yArDs Announce Fall Tour Dates, Playing Fallon On August 1st

This past week marked two very notable live sets from tUnE-yArDs. The first was on Thursday at Pier 54’s Hudson River Park in New York City, where they played to upwards of 5,000 people as the sun set, followed by a display of fireworks! It was a transcendent, joyous affair for all involved. No rest for the weary, they more or less ran to the airport shortly afterwards and caught a flight to Chicago in order to perform at the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival the following afternoon! That performance was singled-out as a standout amongst the many acts who played the weekend-long fest, as noted by The New York Times and a slew of Chicago papers.

Whether you were lucky enough to catch either of these sets, or if you’re one of the unlucky folks who missed out, you have more chances to see tUnE-yArDs perform. That’s right, they’ve confirmed a massive amount of Fall North American headlining dates!

If you can’t wait until the Fall for your tUnE-yArDs fix, don’t fret, as people across the nation will have the opportunity to witness the group make their late-night television debut on August 1st on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/!

Can’t even wait until then? Check out this recent live video of them performing “Gangsta” c/o Yours Truly if you missed that last week: http://yourstru.ly/2011/07/10/video-tune-yards-gangsta/

Also, if you weren’t listening to Sound Opinions on your local NPR affiliate station this past weekend, they devoted a rare 45 minutes of their hour-long show to tUnE-yArDs! The archive of the extensive in-studio segment can be found here: http://www.soundopinions.org/
