The Shins

The Shins, in support of their fifth full-length studio album Heartworms, has been touring the world extensively. Stops so far have included much of Western Europe as well as US and Canada, and in March, a stop in Los Angeles.

The Shins have announced a massive show in Los Angeles this coming fall, Friday, Sept 29 amongst the picturesque local setting of The Greek Theatre. Sitting just east of Griffith Observatory, this venue is typically quite stunning and especially so after sunset. Joining The Shins in support will be Foxygen and Day Wave.

The Greek Theatre

“Name For You” is a rather catchy opening track, with an eclectic collection of sounds and James Mercer’s spectacular voice ranging beautifully as usual. Mercer wrote this track, aptly for the story of naming his daughter. “Painting a Hole” opens a dimension not yet seen from The Shins, a heavily synthesized bass and quick guitar chords along with relatively choppy beat evokes an 80’s experience that feels generic and out of place.’ – GSM review of Heartworms.

The Shins will be stopping at The Greek Theatre on Friday, September 29. Ticket prices range from $39.50 to $49.50, plus applicable service charges.

The Goldenvoice presale begins Thursday, July 13 from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM local with the password NAME.
