    Off!

    I normally don't buy into the idea of a punk rock "supergroup", but the fact that OFF! features members from Black/Circle Jerks (Keith Morris), Burning Brides (Dimitri Coats), Redd Kross (Steven Shane McDonald) and Rocket From The Crypt/Hot Snakes (Mario Rubalcaba) ... yeah, these guys qualify. And they shred, hard.

    Chvrches (Sold Out!)

    Chvrches hit the valley? I am there! Their first album, 'The Bones Of What You Believe' is a solid debut with track after track of goodness. If you've not yet experienced Chvrches, I suggest the tracks "We Sink" and "Gun." My only wish is that they bring along Still Corners, who cancelled their 2013 show at the crescent to be Chrvches opener during their west coast tour. That would make me very happy!

    Tinariwen

    A combination of Berber, Arab, and African influences, plus Western blues and psychedelic rock. Tinariwen’s history of “desert blues” is deeply embedded with the conflicts that plagued the Tuareg people of the southern Sahara, and it shows in the group’s hypnotic, politically charged music. Influences from across the region merge with elements of psychedelic rock and blues, creating an entirely unique sound. Formed out of the ashes of rebellion, Tinariwen has captured themes of exile, repression, and sovereignty through its music.

    The band, which first gained a global following in 2001, has achieved several accolades for its music, including the BBC Award for World Music in 2005 and the GRAMMY Award for Best World Music Album in 2011. Tinariwen’s performances have spanned from Coachella to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

    Chromeo

    Imagine, if you will, a yacht. It's forged of gold and strong African teak, bobbing gently at anchor somewhere between the French Riviera and Detroit. A statue of the late Roger Troutman is affixed to the stern like a guardian angel. The ladies of Klymaxx wander the decks serving strawberries and cream on silver platters. Sylvester himself is the skipper, and Hall & Oates are down below, keeping the engines in shipshape. This is the S.S. Chromeo, and the two men who create the smoothest of music under the same moniker are at rest aboard, preparing for another global voyage of lovers' funk ambassadorship.

    Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) was an unfocused pupil of classical piano. However, she has come to use this background to understand and create vast soundscapes and textures through the usage of live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty vinyl. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse the sounds of the past with her musical prowess into something avant garde. All ages.

    Future Islands (Sold Out!)

    FUTURE ISLANDS are a post-wave dance band from North Carolina, now residing in Baltimore. Future Islands play a terse yet passionate music wrought from a stripped back palette. Gerrit Welmers' cartwheeling synthesizer melodies tumble across the austere wilderness of William Cashion's post punk bass pulse, driven ever forward by Erick Murillo's ecstatic feel for rhythm.

    With WAXAHATCHEE, ED SCHRADER'S MUSIC BEAT, DOGBRETH
