A thrilling collection of 10 emotionally-charged, deeply personal and sonically vibrant songs, it’s a record that breathes new life into the post-hardcore scene, showcasing a band operating with a true belief in their craft.

Powfu steadily released new tracks over the next 3 years and started to draw millions of streams across platforms. His breakout hit “death bed (coffee for your head)” featuring beabadoobee first gained traction on YouTube and later exploded on TikTok in early 2020, catapulting the song up the Spotify, Shazam and Billboard charts. The song took over the globe and Powfu became one of the only Canadian artists to have a song reach 1 Billion streams on Spotify.

Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience formed in 1995 to perform the most accurate and captivating Led Zeppelin live show since the real thing. For Zoso, it’s much more than just being a tribute. It’s about touching a golden era in music. Zoso embodies Page, Plant, Bonham and Jones in their spirit, tightlywound talent and authenticity. Each band member has been carefully selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of their Led Zeppelin counterparts.

Expectations exist to be subverted. As a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, Josh A gives audiences what they want — and what they didn’t know they wanted as well. His malleable hybrid of hip-hop, rock, and electronic encases an enriched emotional core that bleeds truth through the cracks between guitar melodies and 808 slaps. By appealing directly and unapologetically to the heart, he has quietly amassed over 720 million streams and 202 million views under-the-radar. Now, the self-described “workaholic nicotine addict with very high highs and very low lows” promises the unexpected on a series of 2021 singles and more projects on the horizon.
“When I was growing up and making music, my dad always told me to give people something they didn’t know they wanted,” he explains. “I always think about that. Doing the unexpected is appreciated even more than the expected. I don’t go two days without making a song, and I’m always trying to pursue a different sound from what’s out there and from what I’ve done in the past.”
PUP RETURNS: THANK F***ING GOD Tour with support from Palehound and The OBGMs at Vinyl Music Hall
It seems significant that there were bats in the mansion’s attic, although how significant it seems will have something to do with how you feel and what you know about PUP. None of it is a metaphor, and also all of it is.
The mansion, for its part, is very real—it is a sprawling residence-slash-studio in Connecticut’s most dispiriting mid-sized city where the producer Peter Katis has helped acts like The National and Interpol and Frightened Rabbit and Kurt Vile make records. There are gold records on the walls and warrens of strange new rooms that the band members discovered seemingly daily; the roof leaks when it rains, and the bats reclaim the attic after dark. PUP singer Stefan Babcock recorded all his vocals in the living room, at night. “The other guys were just trying to live their lives,” he said, “and Nestor and I would be down there screaming into microphones while they were watching TV in the next room.” Babcock remembered Katis telling him that the bats “go away” during the daytime hours. “I was like, ‘no, they’re sleeping,’” Babcock said. “They don’t go anywhere, there’s nowhere for them to go.’”

Magic City Hippies is: Robby Hunter, Pat Howard, John Coughlin
Shades on and shirts unbuttoned, Magic City Hippies generate the kind of heat that could’ve powered a high seas yacht party in the seventies or shake a Coachella stage next summer. If the trio—Robby Hunter, Pat Howard, and John Coughlin—stepped off the screen from some long-lost Quentin Tarantino flick in slow-motion (instruments in hand), nobody would question it. Embracing everything from AM radio rock and poolside pop to nimble raps and salsa, they lock into an era-less vibe with no shortage of funk or hooks. The three-piece deliver the kind of bangers you can play on the way to the party, during the party, and to smooth over the comedown as the sun comes up.
Emerging from the European underground in the 1980s, German firebrands KMFDM were part of the industrial wave that crashed the mainstream in the ’90s alongside kindred spirits Nine Inch Nails, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, and Ministry. With their bold, propaganda-styled album covers and techno-metal anthems, they placed more focus on pulsing dance beats and provocative messages than their darker contemporaries. The band established their trademark style on 1986’s What Do You Know, Deutschland? After an early-’90s relocation to the U.S., they began crashing clubs and dance charts with the hits “Naive,” “Split,” and “Vogue.” The group imploded following 1999’s Adios, but frontman and founder Sascha Konietzko soon reconfigured the lineup and continued maintaining KMFDM’s streak of thought-provoking and body-moving output.
Celebrating their 35th Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin, have spent most of their career on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at Atlanta’s famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene. Now, 35 years later, and after releasing four full length albums on Island Records and one on Geffen Records, founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup changes, and miles of back roads and highways to arrive here. After a gold record, 9 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still refuses to rest. In 2012, a documentary about the band, entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times of Drivin’ N’ Cryin’, was produced. In 2015, a collection of 10 choice cuts from the band’s 4-EP “Songs” series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashville’s Plowboy Records.
THIS CONCERT IS IN 2023
Eric Johnson has been traveling on a prolific odyssey over the course of more than four decades. Along the way, his creations have encompassed repertoire that cross pollinate genres which include rock, blues, jazz, fusion, soul, folk, new-age, classical and even country. Inevitably, E.J. says it best himself in sharing, “It really boils down to the music and the song at the end of the day,” he explains. “If it doesn’t have that it gets boring for me. The most important thing for me is to grow musically and make a more expansive and meaningful artistic statement with every new project.”
