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.

In other concert news, Merriweather Post Pavilion keeps filling up its calendar.

The Decemberists, out now with "The King is Dead," will play there June 13. Tickets, starting at $30, go on sale Friday at Ticketfly. 

The great Aimee Mann, whose twitter you should really be following, will perform at the Recher Theater April 10. Tickets, which start at $27.50, are on sale now at Missiontix.

Two legendary musicians will play the region this Spring.

Neil Young is only performing at ten cities on his Spring tour, but two of his dates are in Baltimore: April 27 and 28 at the Hippodrome Theater. Tickets, starting at $65, are on sale at Ticketmaster now. 

Paul Simon is scheduled to appear at DAR Constitution Hall May 25. Tickets, starting at $55, go on sale Friday at Ticketfly also.

Def Leppard, now enjoying a quiet revival as the typeface for Britney Spears' new album, will perform at Jiffy Lube Live on July 9. Tickets, which start at $25, are on sale Friday at Ticketmaster.

Neil Young's tickets are not for sale now. At least not to the Public.
