Indie Music Tours You Gotta Catch This Fall

Fall is already the best season of the year, but it’s bound to be even better this year with stacked bills from awesome indie rock bands coming your way.

Seriously, get excited, because we’re in for a treat. Bands you grew up on, pivotal ones that shaped you and your musical taste, that introduced you into punk or rock ‘n’ roll, are coming to a town near you. Classic pioneering bands like Fleetwood Mac, The Beach Boys and The Violent Femmes are returning to the road to entertain us.

So get out your calendar and start planning a musical autumn—and act fast, because these shows are selling out quickly.

Thom Yorke
The frontman for Radiohead is taking his solo act on the road to bring his introspective tunes to everyone.

Mitski
Touring on her most recent album Be the Cowboy, Miski sings sultry indie that shred everyone’s heartstrings.

Phoenix
If you missed them last year the classic indie band is still touring their killer album from 2017 Ti Amo.

The Dead Milkmen
The group that brought you “Punk Rock Girl” and so many other classic punk songs are back and touring.

The Damned
Speaking of classic punk songs, if you’re a true blue punk rocker then you can’t miss The Damned, another pioneering band that’s playing old and new stuff.

Dirty Projectors
They get really experimental on Lamp Lit Prose, their newest album released just this summer. This is a tour every Dirty Projectors fan needs to catch.

Death Cab for Cutie (including dates w/ Charlie Bliss and The Beths)
The ultimate indie pop/ emo band from the early 2000s is back on the road with a new album and is going to be joined by current killer indie pop/ emo bands.

The Beach Boys
Come on, do I even need to tell you how much this band rocks? They’re surf rock/pop rock kings.

The Violent Femmes
Another pioneering punk band—they’re big time now, but they’re still edgy enough to give you cool points in the music world.

Bon Iver
Bon Iver is classic sweet and slow indie rock that never gets old.

The Dodos
They took a hiatus, but the band that’s been rocking out for over a decade is back and shredding the stage once again.

Fleetwood Mac
If you’re an intellectual, you’d go catch this classic rock ‘n’ roll staple.

Arctic Monkeys
Their most recent album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino received rave reviews, and for good reason. It’s an even better experience live.

The Voidz
The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas’ edgy experimental rock project is playing several Texas shows in early October before heading overseas for a U.K. tour.
