Incoming: The Swell Season, Brett Dennen, Ghostface Killah, A Fine Frenzy, Grand Archives, and More

We're willing to bet that tickets for this show, which will run $30 to $34, are gonna get snatched up pretty quickly as well, so be sure to hit up the Mesa Arts Center's site starting at 10 a.m. tomorrow to get 'em while the getting's good. And just in case you aren't familiar with the Swell Season or Once (and shame on you if that's true), check out our former music columnist Brendan Joel Kelley's blogs on the duo and the film from 2007 here and here.
