Tune-Yards at Fox Theater

An Oakland act headlining Noise Pop is basically unheard of, and we should absolutely celebrate the development. Last month, Tune-Yards released I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, a dance-ready, electro-pop album inspired by Haitian and Kenyan music. But even more striking is what Merrill Garbus chooses to explore thematically: cultural appropriation as a white artist who has drawn from Black musical traditions. It’s unusually vulnerable, brutally self-aware, and powerfully indicative of the time we’re living in. Bonus: Thao & The Get Down Stay Down and Sudan Archives also perform.
