4AD Presents Tune-Yards + U.S. Girls at MASS MoCA
Tune-Yards + U.S. Girls
Tuesday, October 30, 8pm
Hunter Center at MASS MoCA
Tickets on sale beginning Friday, June 15, at 10am
NORTH ADAMS, MASSACHUSETTS — Since 1980 independent record label 4AD has been the home to remarkable music, from the likes of Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and Pixies in the 80s, to their current roster featuring the likes of Deerhunter, Scott Walker and Grimes. This fall, 4AD will present the label’s first-ever tour featuring labelmates Tune-Yards and U.S. Girls who stop at MASS MoCA on Tuesday, October 30, at 8pm in support of their standout 2018 LPs.
Tune-Yards’ highly acclaimed new album I can feel you creep onto my private life was released earlier this year. Entertainment Weekly called the album “politically urgent,” The New York Times praised it as “a sleek, radical evolution” and NPR Music said it’s “Tune-Yards’ most sophisticated album to date.” The band performed “Heart Attack” and “Look At Your Hands” on Kimmel and “ABC 123” on Conan in January.
U.S. Girls (aka Meg Remy)’s new album, In A Poem Unlimited, is a dancing Trojan horse for introspection. The New Yorker ran a multi-page critic’s essay on the themes of Remy’s work and Pitchfork gave it both Best New Music and Best New Track (for “Rosebud”) nods. GQ said it’s “a compulsively listenable tour de force that’s one of the best pop records of 2018 so far” and after the band, who perform as an 8-piece, sold out 3 shows in one night at NYC’s Baby’s All Right, Stereogum called their sets “a revelation.”
Tickets for all events are available through the MASS MoCA box office located at the museum in North Adams. The box office is open 11am-5pm every day except Tuesdays. Tickets can also be charged by phone by calling 413.662.2111 x1 during box office hours or purchased online at massmoca.org. All events are held rain or shine.
