PREVIEW @LMBNOLA: tUnE-yArDs @ One Eyed Jacks 10/2/11
WTUL is killin’ it these days with their select show promotions, helping bring a SOLD OUT Explosions in the Sky to Tipitina’s on Wednesday and closing down the week with the highly-buzzed about tUnE-yArDs at One Eyed Jacks, one of the more unique bands to come out of the indie universe this year. Doors are at 9 p.m., Pat Jordache will be opening and tickets are still available for $14. The twin bill makes for a full night of intriguing and off-kilter pop music in the rouge French Quarter bordello – with music from both artists that will surely be both colorful and artful.
