The Shins to play Civic Theater Nov. 14_lowres

James Mercer of The Shins.

The dream of the '90s (and early- to mid-2000s) will be alive in New Orleans Nov. 16, when The Shins play the Civic Theater. The band extended its current tour this morning, adding the New Orleans date and a handful of others.

The Shins are best known for the not-really-a-hit-but-everyone-knows-the-song/Garden State soundtrack staple  "New Slang," as well as their 2007 album Wincing the Night Away. Earlier this year, they released a new album, Heartworms, with the single "Name For You."

Tickets are $36 and go on sale June 6 at 10 a.m.
