When I first heard the new tUnE-yArDs album, whokill, I thought someone had dumped happiness pop rocks in my ears. The woman behind the uke, Merrill Garbus, has been causing a stir with her hootin’, stompin’, strummin’ ways since her debut album BiRd-BrAiNs, so much so that I once saw David Byrne in her audience giving his signature head bob as a seal of approval.

Tonight, for fReE (!), you can bob along too when the band joins electronic rock  outfit Austra for a memorable show at Hudson River Park at Pier 54.

FREE tUnE-yArDs and Austra Show
Thursday, July 14th 6PM
Hudson River Park at Pier 54 (W. 18th Street & 11th Ave)
