Show Announcements: Death Cab, Arctic Monkeys and 110 New Show Announcements

With only about a month until Death Cab For Cutie releases their seventh album, Codes And Keys, it's a good time to ask yourself: "What would Zach Braff do?" Easy answer: He'd buy tickets for their upcoming concert.

Death Cab, as they're known by those "in the know," have recently announced a world tour that will make a brief stop at Grand Prairie's Verizon Theatre on Saturday, August 13. Ticket information for the event has yet to be announced, but rest assured, they will go fast -- especially considering that Scotland's Frightened Rabbit will be opening the show.

In other indie-rock superpower show announcements news, Arctic Monkeys have long been a force to be reckoned with in the UK, but they're still trying to find their niche here in The States. Judging by their first single, "Don't Sit Down Cause I've Moved Your Chair," their forthcoming release, Suck It And See, will garner a lot of attention for the band. So, too, will their recently announced tour, for which they'll appear at Palladium Ballroom on Monday, August 1. Tickets for this show will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. for $30 via Ticketmaster.
