Interpol @ Orpheum Theatre- Sept. 11

Interpol will be stopping at the Orpheum Theatre on Sept. 11 while touring its sixth album, Marauder.

Attendees can expect to hear old favorites like “NYC” and “Slow Hands” as well as revitalized rock from Interpol’s 2018 album.  

Childish Gambino @ TD Garden- Sept. 12

Childish Gambino is bringing his This Is America Tour to TD Garden on Sept. 12 along with opener Rae Sremmurd.

FIDLAR @ Paradise Rock Club- Sept. 14

Los Angeles-based band FIDLAR will bring its cool California sound to Paradise Rock Club on Sept. 14.
