The Hot Ticket: Your Guide to Events on Sale

Here’s your Hot Ticket, our Thursday guide to concert and other event tickets going on sale in the days ahead. Read on for this week’s heads-ups.

Wilco, one of my favorite acts, plays lush alt-country with modern layers. The band is at Merriweather Post Pavilion Thursday, June 21; tickets ($25-$40) go on sale Friday at 10 am.

The Slickee Boys—Travis Morrison mentioned them reverentially in my After Hours interview with him earlier in the week—play the 9:30 Club May 27. Tickets ($15) went on sale this morning.

Local boys Thievery Corporation play Merriweather on Saturday, June 23, with Manu Chao Radio Bemba Sound System. Tickets ($30-$45) go on sale Friday at 10 am.

The Upstate Life can’t believe that tickets to May 13’s LCD Soundsystem show at the 9:30 Club haven’t sold out, and neither can I. LCD Soundsystem plays a rambunctious live show you won’t want to miss. At just $15, tickets are a steal.

I thought that tickets for Ben Gibbard’s May 10 solo show at the 9:30 Club would have sold out by now as well, but a few remain for the late show at 10:30. You don’t want to miss the godfather of mainstream indie rock. $25.
