WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

NOFX

April 30 • Madison Theater

With 12 studio albums, more than a dozen EPs and a discographer's wet dream's worth of 7-inch releases to their credit (in total accounting for close to 4 million units sold) since their Los Angeles formation an astonishing 27 years ago, NOFX is clearly one of the most successful and one of the most outrageous Indie Punk bands of all time. Just ask Fat Mike.  

Arctic Monkeys

April 9 • Madison Theater

Arctic Monkeys' latest album, last year's 'Humbug,' was co-produced by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme and became the band's third consecutive UK No. 1 and U.S. Top 25 album, spawning a number of successful singles and EPs. It's only hype if it isn't true: Arctic Monkeys are well on their way to becoming one of Britain's historically great bands.

Jakob Dylan, fighting to regain the long-lost career momentum he had with The Wallflowers' 1996 multimillion-selling, Grammy-winning 'Bringing Down the Horse,' is on tour to showcase a new Roots Rock album, 'Women and Country.' The new album prominently features Neko Case and Kelly Hogan on supporting vocals, and the two singers will be on stage with Dylan in Covington.  

Sound Tribe Sector 9

March 18 • Madison Theater

The Atlanta band coalesced in 1998 around an instrumental Drum and Bass sound that quickly evolved into a style that tended to embrace and incorporate an amazing array of genres, including Funk, Electronica, Trip Hop, Jazz, Soul and Rock. That early diversity has paid fascinating dividends, allowing STS9 to share stages with the likes of Tortoise, Perry Farrell and James Brown.  

Rodrigo y Gabriela

There aren't many instances where the phrases "Folk Rock," "Latin Rock," "Thrash Metal" and "acoustic guitars" are diagrammed in the same sentence. But Rodrigo y Gabriela have always been adept at defying convention. The duo's newest album '11:11,' released last fall to overwhelming acclaim, features their trademark percussive rhythms and intricate leads that reference both their Metal background and Latin heritage.  

Ani DiFranco With Erin McKeown

Feb. 27 • Madison Theater

Twenty years ago, a good many savvy, too-hip-for-the-scene industry types were dismissing Ani DiFranco as a fringe-dwelling, mohawked, my-fist-your-face Folk Punk evangelist, a hard-strumming one trick pony destined to marginalize herself into a narrowly defined cult performer of little consequence. Clearly, she didn't follow that particular career path, defying expectations at every opportunity.  

Snoop Dogg

Snoop "Snoop Doggy Dogg" Dogg might be the quintessential 21st-century Rap star. On the music side, he was a big part of the legendary 'Chronic' album by Dr. Dre and his first couple of solo releases are almost as classic. But it's what Snoop has done after his initial musical success that's made him representative of Rap stardom today.  

Robert Earl Keen

Feb. 13 • Madison Theater

A little Country, a little Pop and a lot of Texas-spun, story-laced Americana, singer/songwriter Robert Earl Keen's latest release, 'The Rose Hotel,' has been hailed as one of the best of his storied career. His show Saturday at the Madison Theater in Covington features support from Bobby Bare Jr.   

Solitary Refinement

Owl City and Lights find wide audience with their solo crafted Electronic Pop

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 20, 2010
From the humblest of beginnings Adam Young has built a 21st Century Pop juggernaut called Owl City that's traveled the information superhighway on a meteoric rise to fame and acclaim. Opening on Young's current tour is the lovely and talented Lights, whose birth name is Valerie Poxleitner. In a way, you could call her the female and/or Canadian version of Owl City. The similarities are striking.  

Gym Class Heroes

Dec. 18 • Madison Theater

I've got to hand it to the guys in Gym Class Heroes. They accomplished something I might never have even dreamed of attempting for the sheer improbability of it: They made my teenaged daughter sing a Supertramp song.
