Gary Clark Jr is considered to be the savior/renaissance man of blues music. He hails from Austin, Texas and has been playing guitar since age 12. He earned recognition early on from playing gigs at Antone’s music club in Austin (the same place that launched the career of blues icon Stevie Ray Vaughn). Clark has landed spots on countless music festivals and played sold out shows nation-wide. With such an impressive resume it was hard to believe that he was going to be playing Mr. Smalls Theater, which also sold out (duh right?). Continue reading
Plain Ole Bill, Last Word, Jimmy 2 Times, and DJ Fundo will once again mob up at First Ave in downtown Minneapolis to put on another of their hot Get Cryphy performances on Friday, March 7. This session should be especially turnt because the artists are celebrating six full years of destroying dance floors together. This is the kind of show where you should plan to emerge with sweat on your shirt and beats in your head.
The show is 18+ and goes from 9 p.m.-2 a.m. Tickets are only $8 in advance, so get some soon.
Getcha ass to Johnstown, PA tonight to catch the brilliance of Broccoli Samurai for…… yes, ONLY $5. No excuses here, we better see all of you grooving at the Venue of Merging Arts tonight. Hullaballoo Productions is throwing the show as well as a free afterparty at Dively’s with Habatat! So, if you’re complaining about being broke (I feel you), but you’re fiending for your weekly dose of live music, tonight is your night!
VOMA has a BYOB policy, so the show will be 21+. Doors open at 6:30, music begins at 7. Broccoli Samurai will be playing two sets, with no opener, so be there at 7 sharp!
Tonight, one-man-band, Zach Deputy, returns to The Rex Theater in Pittsburgh’s South Side! If you haven’t seen what Zach is about, and you are in the area, I highly recommend checking him out. While his studio albums are great, the way he delivers his music in the live setting blows those recordings out of the water. His music is absolutely “feel good music,” so be prepared to have an awesomely fun time grooving to Zach’s music! Kicking the night off is the 6 piece rock band, Big Something, at 9pm, so be sure to get there ahead of time!
This is a 21+ event. Grab your tickets ahead of time!
Last year we got to talk to Zach, read the interview here!
Check out Zach’s Bandcamp page & snag some of his pay-what-you-want live sets.
Anticipated by hip-hop fans since its announcement and subsequent leaking, ScHoolboy Q’s third studio album Oxymoron truly, solidly meets expectations. With the hazy braggadocio he’s famous for, Q creates an experience of equal parts introspection and raw energy. Continue reading
After a three-year touring and writing break, Warpaint released their second full-length album in January 2014. The self-titled album, Warpaint, has reached new heights for the melodious, yet haunting sound that the four girls created for themselves. This album was a mature departure from their first full-length album, The Fool (2010), in that they expanded their soundscapes and musical mediums while staying true to their ghostly sound we know and love. With Warpaint, the carefully chosen song order allows the listener to embark on a misty and thought provoking journey. Continue reading
It is finally here folks! And man is it a great lineup (click on the above photo for a zoomed in view)!
Elton John is making his US festival debut (YES FIRST EVER). Jack White will be making his solo debut at Bonnaroo. But perhaps the most intriguing artist is Kanye West. He infamously “pissed off” (for lack of a better term) many Bonnaroo goers by showing up late among a few other things. It looks like Yeezus has a shot at redemption. Everyone deserves a second chance right?
Other notable acts include, Avett Brothers, Frank Ocean, Cake, Wiz Khalifa, Broken Bells, Ms. Lauryn Hill, etc. Another noticeable act this year is the Skrillex coordinated EDM Superjam. I thought the hip hop one last summer was great, no doubt that this is a during the day set, it reeks of “Late-Night Set.”
No doubt this is one of better lineups Bonnaroo has put up. My advice to all of you considering attending Bonnaroo, “Buy the ticket, take the ride,” oh and speaking of tickets they go on sale February 22 at noon! SEE YOU ON THE FARM!
Extending their presence beyond the Internet, Three Loco member Dirt Nasty and former White Girl Mob Youtube queen Lil Debbie will headline March 1st at the Fine Line. As long as you’re 18 or older you can come through for some hot verses opened up by Turquoise Jeep. Get your tickets for $20-25.
Tonight, americana/folk/rock band, American Babies, will be rocking Club Cafe down in the South Side of Pittsburgh! We will have the pleasure of hanging out and talking to guitarist and vocalist, Tom Hamilton prior to the show, so be on the look out for that to go live!
Check out the band’s newest album, Knives & Teeth, which was just released at the end of 2013:
The Good Seed & Willis Tree will be kicking off the night starting at 8pm (doors at 7pm).
This is going to be a 21+ show. Grab your tickets ahead of time here!
