The Mars Volta
The Mars Volta is a progressive-rock whirlwind, constructing maniacally complex music and performing it with a mixture of rigorous virtuosity, psychedelic euphoria and punk intensity... still rock's finest avatar of excess." -Jon Pareles, New York Times
Upon completion of their current trek through Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and Europe, The Mars Volta will return to the U.S. for a run of headline dates beginning September 12 in Columbus and capped off by an appearance at the Austin City Limits festival.
The tour opener will be a make-up performance of the band's twice-canceled previous engagement in Columbus. Vamos de veras!"

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
