Toro Y Moi Coming To Mercury Lounge Next Week, Bowery In April

Toro Y Moi at Bowery Ballroom, from the HAD Archive

When we caught Toro Y Moi at Bowery Ballroom last May, the band was in top form and opening for Caribou. Since then they've been all over the place, and their record Causers Of This has gotten all sorts of recognition. No surprise, then, that the band will be back in town in April, headlining two nights: one at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, and one at the Bowery Ballroom. The shows take place on April 10th and 11th, and go on sale this Friday.

What is more surprising in light of the band's success, is that they'll also be in town next Wednesday night to play the Mercury Lounge. Not only that, but they'll be playing in the first opening slot at 8:30pm. We have no idea what the deal is, but the show is already sold out, and it's probably your last chance to catch the band in such a small room for the foreseeable future. If you can find a way, be there.
