Performers at this Event
Coldplay
Coldplay Remove performer from this event
After surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest bands of the new millennium, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that landed the British quartet a near-permanent residence on record charts worldwide....
The Black Keys
The Black Keys Remove performer from this event
It’s too facile to call the Black Keys counterparts of the White Stripes: they share several surface similarities -- their names are color-coded, they hail from the Midwest, they’re guitar-and-drum blues-rock duos -- but the Black Keys are their own distinct thing, a tougher, rougher rock band with a purist streak that never surfaces in the Stripes....
Cage the Elephant
Cage the Elephant Remove performer from this event
When Cage the Elephant released their self-titled debut in 2009, they were heralded as saviors of slacker funk-punk thanks to their hit "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked." The title turned out to be more prescient than they'd bargained for: the band has been battling adversity of many stripes....
Band of Skulls
Band of Skulls Remove performer from this event
The gritty English trio Band of Skulls craft bluesy and ballsy slabs of atmospheric indie rock that echo the work of contemporaries like the Kills, Duke Spirit, and the Black Keys. Formed by Russell Marsden (guitar and vocals), Emma Richardson (bass and vocals), and Matt Hayward (drums) while attending college in the city of Southampton, the band (which was originally called Fleeing New York) recorded a buzz-worthy demo in 2008, which resulted in its full-length debut album, Baby Darling Doll Face Honey, in 2009 and an accompanying international tour....
The Constellations
The Constellations Remove performer from this event
Led by vocalist Elijah Jones, the Constellations specialize in eclectic, rhythmic electro-rock that recalls the sounds of Beck, Gnarls Barkley, and the Heavy. The Atlanta-based collective features a rotating lineup of local pop, hip-hop, and rock musicians, several of whom -- including Cee-Lo and rapper Asher Roth -- contributed to the band’s debut album, Southern Gothic....
The Joy Formidable
The Joy Formidable Remove performer from this event
After spending several years with the post-punk outfit Sidecar Kisses, vocalist/guitarist Ritzy Bryan and bassist Rhydian Dafydd left the lineup and launched the Joy Formidable, drawing heavily from shoegaze and noisy alt-rock to create their new group's sound....
Young the Giant
Young the Giant Remove performer from this event
Formerly known as the Jakes, Young the Giant began making eclectic indie rock in Irvine, CA, where bandmates Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drummer) all met each other during high school....
Manchester Orchestra
Manchester Orchestra Remove performer from this event
As led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Hull, the maturity of Manchester Orchestra's songwriting belied the fact that the bandmembers were barely legal when their group sprung into existence....
