    Pet Shop Boys

    So excited for this show coming here! Yep saw them at Arizona State Fair in 2007, and what a blast it was. I recently saw their latest show from the Coachella webcast, I can't wait to see the two dancing buffalos (more entertaining than Outkast's polar bear).

    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.

    Marisa Anderson

    I'm on board for anything on the Mississippi Records label. Marisa Anderson is certainly no exception. It's a real treat to see such a talented and understated solo musician and in such a cozy spot, like the Trunk Space.

    Phantogram (Sold Out!)

    The duo keeps getting bigger and better... growing after each release. I had the pleasure of seeing them play their last show in Phoenix at Crescent and it was amazing... it will surely be the same case at the Marquee. Their latest effort, 'Voices' is chock full of awesome tunes... if you haven't heard it yet (where have you been?), try Black Out Days and Howling At The Moon... and then quickly buy your tickets... they will sell out!

    Rickie Lee Jones (Prime Time Show)

    Little known fact: Pirates is one of my all time favorite albums. I've never had the chance to see her live performance but I've heard she's amazing. Can't wait!

    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.

    Chromeo

    Imagine, if you will, a yacht. It's forged of gold and strong African teak, bobbing gently at anchor somewhere between the French Riviera and Detroit. A statue of the late Roger Troutman is affixed to the stern like a guardian angel. The ladies of Klymaxx wander the decks serving strawberries and cream on silver platters. Sylvester himself is the skipper, and Hall & Oates are down below, keeping the engines in shipshape. This is the S.S. Chromeo, and the two men who create the smoothest of music under the same moniker are at rest aboard, preparing for another global voyage of lovers' funk ambassadorship.

    Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) was an unfocused pupil of classical piano. However, she has come to use this background to understand and create vast soundscapes and textures through the usage of live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty vinyl. Through the creation of beats, she is able to fuse the sounds of the past with her musical prowess into something avant garde. All ages.

    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.

    With WAXAHATCHEE, ED SCHRADER'S MUSIC BEAT, DOGBRETH

    Lorde (sold out. VIP seats still avail)

    Employing a stylish mix of arty, confessional bedroom pop and club-ready electro-rock that has drawn comparisons to the likes of Grimes, Lana Del Rey, and Sky Ferreira, New Zealand singer/songwriter Ella Yelich-O'Connor, who goes by the stage name Lorde, became an Internet sensation at the age of 16 with the video for her debut single, "Royals," which garnered over 750,000 hits on YouTube.

    Phantogram (Sold Out!)

    Phantogram’s beat-driven dreamlike pop songs sounds like it’s made by a band from the city. Unexpectedly, the band doesn’t live and work in a major urban center, but rather calls the town of Saratoga Springs, NY (population 26,186) home.

    Since 2002, TEEN's lead singer/songwriter, Teeny Lieberson, has been playing in bands around New York City, eventually becoming the keyboard player for the indie-psych band Here We Go Magic in 2008. During a hiatus from the band in the winter of 2009, Teeny wrote a five-song EP Little Doods, the foundation of TEEN's full-length, In Limbo. Working with many of the songs written that winter with the desire to expand the sound from four-track/lo-fi to a fully flushed out sound, Teeny recruited her sisters, Lizzie and Katherine, along with long- time friend, Jane Herships and best friend since childhood, Maia Ibar, to become members of TEEN.
