Upcoming Events

St. Paul & the Broken Bones

R&B/Soul, Blues
High-voltage soul-based rockers St. Paul & The Broken Bones render a blazing mating of ’60s soul fire with latter-day influences like Sly Stone, David Bowie and Prince. The Alabama-based band’s take-no-prisoners live shows caught the eye of the Rolling Stones, who tapped them as an opening band. “I love the Rolling Stones,” says frontman Paul Janeway, “but my train of thought is, you gotta try and blow ‘em off the stage. And that’s still my goal.” They stir up the crowd with guitars, horns, brass and a James Brown-worthy get-on-up style.

Rise Against

Metal, Punk, Alternative
Chicago's Rise Against features former members of the late great 88 Fingers Louie. This four-piece punk unit, led by lead vocalist Tim McIlrath, plays a punchy brand of melodic hardcore heavily influenced by bands like Bad Religion, Minor Threat and Bad Brains. Since forming in late 1999, the band has found a surprising level of mainstream success over multiple studio albums, including their newest, "The Black Market," but is perhaps best known for their tireless activism efforts, including work with Amnesty International, the It Gets Better Project and more.
