London’s Tourist is headlining the Great Hall at Avant Gardner on Thursday night. The electronic artist just released a whirlwind of a new record, Wild, back in October. He’ll be joined by New York-based DJ and experimental pop artist Matthew Dear. Fellow Londoner Swim Mountain will be opening the show, and lucky for us, he just dropped a killer new single entitled “Youth.”

Friday, December 13

Nation of Language, Modern Vices, Hideout at The Broadway, 8 p.m.
