    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!

This Ain't Kansas These shows will sell out soon

    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.

    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.
