Aaron Lewis

Wednesday • Bogart’s

Aaron Lewis, who came to fame fronting Hard Rock band Staind, is a Country singer now. This isn’t exactly a new thing. But it’s still a little weird, right?  

The B.E.A.T. with Black Pharaoh, Counterfeit Money Machine and Abiyah

Friday • Northside Tavern

0 Comments · Tuesday, January 21, 2014
The B.E.A.T. cites musical influences like Indie Rock bands Minus the Bear and Battles, while the smart, imaginative lyrics and flow of MC B.East were inspired by above-the-fray MCs like Nas, Lupe Fiasco and MF Doom. Together, the sound of The B.E.A.T. is like no other in Hip Hop.
  

Panic! at the Disco with The Colourist

Saturday • Bogart’s

1 Comment · Tuesday, January 21, 2014
“A long strange trip” hardly seems an adequate description for the circuitous roller coaster that has defined the history of Panic! at the Disco, the second biggest band to emerge from the monochromatic Las Vegas music scene.

Walk off the Earth with Parachute

Sunday • Bogart’s

Don’t mock the cover band, y’all. A good one can not only be highly entertaining, but also turn into a huge success these days — and not just by serving as the most popular human jukebox in their hometowns. Perfect example: Walk off the Earth.
  

Keller Williams with More Than a Little

Thursday • Madison Theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
There is one absolute rule in Keller Williams’ world: There are no rules. Using the Grateful Dead’s improbable diversity as a jumping-off point, Williams has created an astonishingly broad catalog over the past two decades, tossing every conceivable genre spice in his musical gumbo.  

Man Man with Xenia Rubinos

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 15, 2014
If a band is entirely made up of musicians operating under eccentric aliases, there’s an incredibly good chance said band’s music is also eccentric and worthy of your attention. Man Man is a lesser-known but fitting addition to this class, what with the Philly five-piece sporting members nicknamed Honus Honus, Turkey Moth and Pow Pow.
  

Motel Beds with The Harlequins

Friday • MOTR Pub

Someone who's only recently heard music for the first time puts Bieber and "What Does the Fox Say" on blast, researchers study a new pill's ability to help learn perfect pitch and a Black Metal musician from Thailand is murdered for his lack of dedication to Satanism.  

Weekend State

A more thoughtful approach (and a dash of therapy) inform Jinx, the second album from Weekend

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 8, 2014
Weekend guitarist/vocalist Shaun Durkan has certainly gotten plenty of feedback concerning Jinx, the band’s second release. And while no one has exactly accused Durkan of sophomore-slumping on Jinx, there’s certainly been a fair amount of grumbling about the differences between the  album and its louder and more visceral predecessor, 2010’s Sports.

Driftwood with Part-Time Gentlemen and Red Beard’s Revenge

Thursday • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 8, 2014
In its bio, on-the-rise Americana quartet Driftwood is described as “a band with a Rock & Roll soul and a Folk art mind.” With 2011’s sophomore album, A Rock & Roll Heart, and the remarkable, just-released self-titled follow-up, the band’s descriptions are proved accurate.
