Show Announcements: Arcade Fire, Beirut, Josh Groban, Gruff Rhys, Alejandro Escovedo, Gogol Bordello, Bruce Hornsby, Big K.R.I.T., Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae & More!

Since the Grammys, the general population has been mostly dumbfounded that Arcade Fire could win in the category of Best Album. All over the web, the question resounds: "Who is Arcade Fire?"

You'd think that a band that's sold as many albums as they have would sort of be a household name at this point. But that's clearly not the case. Arcade Fire appear to be trying to fix that problem by capitalizing on their Grammy win, though: They just announced a world tour. And one of the stops will come at the Gexa Energy Pavilion (formerly Starplex, Center, etc.) on April. The opening act at this show will be Austin favorites Okkervil River. Tickets are not on sale yet Saturday, February 26, at 10 a.m., via Ticketmaster. General admission seats to the first batch of shows are going for around $40.

Speaking of large indie bands, Beirut have stepped out of a hiatus to tour the world, and that includes a stop at South Side Music Hall on Monday, June 6. Tickets go on sale for $26 this Friday on the South Side Music Hall website.
