Concert News: Wye Oak, The Decemberists, Neil Young
Wye Oak is scheduled to make a number of area appearances this week. They're performing a promotional set tonight at the Sound Garden. And on Friday, they'll perform at the Black Cat. If a cold hadn't intervened, Jenn Wasner was even scheduled to appear at Monday night's Titus Andronicus show to duet with Patrick Stickles on "To Old Friends and New."
But until last week, it looked like Wasner and Andy Stack didn't have any proper shows scheduled for Baltimore.
Then on Friday the announcement came: they will perform April 16 at 2640. Tickets, at $12, are on sale now at Missiontix and Red Emma's Cafe.
NPR, by the way, is streaming their new album, "Civilian," in its entirety.
