Destroyer Announces Phoenix Date This Summer

Up on the Sun favorite Dan Bejar and his band Destroyer released their newest album Kaputt more than a year ago. We liked it then, we liked it at the end of the year, we like it now still. It's a charming ode to the smooth sounds of late-'70s/early-'80s yacht rock, cannily balancing the line between straight-up pastiche and creative homage.

You were maybe hoping to catch the band at Coachella when they play the festival in April? Tough luck, what with the total cluster surrounding ticket sales this year. However, Bejar & Co. just announced a stop on their summer tour here in the Valley--they'll swing through the Crescent Ballroom on Thursday, June 7. Sandro Perri opens, and tickets go on sale Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. (Hey, that's this week!)
