All shows have been selected by Indie88 staff for this sponsored feature.
February 18 and 19 | The Mod Club | Tickets
Wolf Parade are hitting The Mod Club on February 18th and 19th, where they’re sure to be playing tracks from their new album, Thin Mind. The record revolves around humans’ anxiety about technology, and the ways in which is impacts mental health. “Thin Mind refers to the way that being around too much tech has made our focus thin,” keyboardist Spencer Krug explains in a statement. “It’s opening one more page, scrolling one more thing, and the weird, sort-of hollow automaton feeling that you get from it” guitarist Dan Boeckner adds.
February 19 | The Garrison | Tickets
Head to The Garrison on February 19th to catch Slow Hollows with openers Bingo Days. This Los Angeles four-piece is bound to play tracks from their recent record, Actors. With hits like “The Art School Kids” and “Again,” you’re definitely in for a good show!
February 20 | Phoenix Concert Theatre | Tickets
Saint Motel, who boast hits like “My Type” and “Cold Cold Man,” are headed to the Phoenix Concert Theatre on February 20th. While they haven’t released a record since 2016’s saintmotelevision, their dream pop tunes are sure to keep you grooving at this show.
Bat for Lashes
February 22 | Phoenix Concert Theatre | Tickets
After releasing Lost Girls, Bat for Lashes is headed to the Phoenix Concert Theatre on February 22nd. Natasha Khan is sure to be playing new tracks from the record, alongside a couple of covers.

February 28 | The Garrison | Tickets

February 29 | The Horseshoe Tavern | Tickets
Following the release of last year’s Hard Time, Jeremie Albino is headed to The Horseshoe Tavern on February 29th with opener Dave Monks. The album comes packed with a balance of classic rock and roll and blues-influenced track, as his stomp-worthy rhythms and wailing vocal lines take the lead.
