If The Smiths, Morrissey and the Divine Comedy are frequently in your playlists, then you should definitely check out The Dears. Hailing from Canada, the indie-rock band has been around since 1995, releasing one beautiful album after another. Led by husband-and-wife duo Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak, The Dears are known for their dreamy and emotional, orchestral pop-noir. Their performances are stirring and intimate and Athens is lucky to welcome them this April. We feel this one won't make the sold-out cut, but in this case—as in so many others—it's not about quantity, it's about quality.
