Even though music editor Martin Cizmar already laid out the latest show announcements earlier today, we've got one last gig to tell y'all about. NYC alt-rock faves the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are gonna be hitting the Valley at next month for a gig at the Marquee Theatre on Monday, June 8.
It's news that will definitely delight Up on the Sun contributor Michael Lopez, who previously posted about the band's recently-released album It's Blitz back in February, gushing about how the disc "gives their already ambitious music a fun new edge."
Tickets for the show, which will set you back $25, go on sale this coming Tuesday. Visit www.statesidepresents.com for more info.
