Upcoming Events

Machine Gun Kelly

Rap/Hip Hop
Machine Gun Kelly is Richard Colson Baker, a rapper from Cleveland whose sharp wit has been praised from the most cosmopolitan of music critics. In 2011 the New York Times critic Jon Caramanica wrote "He’s a fantastic stylist, a lineal descendent of hometown pioneers Bone Thugs-N-Harmony or Chicago rappers like Twista and Crucial Conflict, who married speed and dexterity in unconventional ways. He’s a student, like Action Bronson, who’s part of a long legacy of white rappers, largely from the Northeast, keeping the sound of mid-’90s New York alive."

Reel Big Fish
With Bowling For Soup
Ska, Rock, Punk
Southern California ska-punk stalwarts Reel Big Fish, now veterans of the music scene for over 15 years, are perhaps best known for the 1997 hit 'Sell Out.' Still fronted by original lead singer and songwriter Aaron Barrett, they continue releasing albums and touring relentlessly, playing more and more countries and bigger venues all over the world. But perhaps the biggest change over the years is the band is now happy, released from a bad label contract and now able to write and produce music their way.

Psychedelic Furs

Rock, Alternative
The Psychedelic Furs, whose name belies their punk-influenced music, were formed in England in 1977 by brothers Richard and Tim Butler, along with saxophone player Duncan Kilburn and guitarist Roger Morris. By the time they released their self-titled debut album in 1980, the group had become a sextet, adding guitarist John Ashton and drummer Vince Ely. That album reached the Top 20 in England. "Talk Talk Talk" of 1981 reached the U.S. Top 100. "Forever Now" (1982) saw the band reduced to a quartet with the departure of Kilburn and Morris. The rest moved to the U.S., turned to producer Todd Rundgren, and scored a U.S. Top 50 hit with "Love My Way." Ely then left, and the remaining trio of the two Butlers and Ashton made "Mirror Moves" (1984), the biggest Psychedelic Furs hit yet. They reunited in 2000.

Tinariwen

Blues, World, Rock
Tinariwen is a band of Touareg musicians, members of the nomadic culture of northern Mali's Sahara region and their instantly identifiable sound is a spellbinding, trance-like desert blues. Influenced for decades by western rock and formed in a rebel military camp, this group traded in the traditional stringed instruments for electric guitars to accompany their ornate vocal style. Their participation in the Touareg struggle for independence has informed their lyrics and their gutsy sound.
