tUnE-yArDs playing Wexner Center June 11
One of the most thrilling, innovative bands I saw last year was tUnE-yArDs, Merrill Garbus' loop-tastic frenzy of percussive twists and shouts. The band's sophomore album "w h o k i l l" cracked my top 10 list and climbed all the way to the top of Pazz & Jop, The Village Voice's annual poll of music critics. Now Garbus and company will bring their defiant sound spasms to the Wexner Center, a venue imagined for exactly this sort of band, on June 11. Info on tickets and tourmates is coming soon.
