THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: tUnE-yArDs – “Look At Your Hands”

Merrill Garbus has announced the release date for her fourth album, I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life, and that’s January 19. She’ll be touring in support of the album and the Chicago date is March 3 at Thalia Hall (tickets here). I don’t know if she’ll be selling hugs post-show as she did at Lincoln Hall several years ago, but either way, it’s always a blast to see her perform and we hope to see you there in early March.
