  1. Betty Who?

    It’s hard to believe Betty Who has only been on the scene since late 2012. She’s taken the world by storm, releasing two EPs and a full length album entitled “Take Me When You Go.” Now she is heading across the U.S. and Canada, blowing fans minds everywhere she goes. Rolling Stone’s description of her “pulsing” single ‘Runaways’ is spot on.

    Watch her bring the house down at The Social on June 26th.

  2. “No drama, no bullshit”

    It’s the best way to characterize English melodic hardcore band The Basement. After entering into a hiatus in 2012 with a short and sweet message to the fans, the band reunited as simply and as drama-free as they had separated. Now, with a nearly one year-old EP entitled ‘Further Sky,’ the band is touring the U.S. to sold out shows. See them in person at The Beacham on August 10th!

  4. Sneak Peak of Flying Lotus’ ‘You’re Dead!’

    Flying Lotus 1

    Rapper, musician, and music producer Flying Lotus is known for his unconventional albums, which have been described as “events” rather than typical records. His style is experimental electronic, and he’s considered a pioneer in his multi-genre sound. With four albums under his belt, Flying Lotus is set to release his fifth album, ‘You’re Dead!’, this October, and it will feature tracks with vocals from other artists, like Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.

    Earlier this week, Flying Lotus released a hypnotic teaser trailer for ‘You’re Dead!’, which evokes the afterlife- the album’s overall theme. Check it out below!

    If you’re just as excited as we are for Flying Lotus’ new album to drop, be sure to see him perform at The Beacham with Thundercat on October 9th. Ticket prices are between $25 to $30. Purchase your ticket here!

  5. Tennis Releases New Single “I’m Callin’”

    Tennis 3

    Tennis is made up of married couple Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. The Denver duo met in college while studying philosophy, and they began writing music together as a way to document the seven months they spent living aboard a sailboat. The result was their first album release, ‘Cape Dory’. The next year, Tennis followed with their second album, ‘Young and Old’, which received rave reviews and debuted #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker Chart. Fresh off a sold-out spring tour with HAIM, their upcoming album, ‘Ritual in Repeat’, will be released on September 9th.

    Last week, Tennis released their newest single off of ‘Ritual in Repeat’, “I’m Callin’”. Listen to it below!

    If you liked their new song, you can get tickets to see Tennis with Pure Bathing Culture at The Social on September 22nd. Tickets range from $12 to $14. Buy them here!

  6. The Afghan Whigs Rock David Letterman

    The Afghan Whigs

    The Afghan Whig’s new album, ‘Do To The Beast’, is their first album in over a decade and a half. From their founding in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1988, the band has always stood out with their blend of hard rock and classic soul. The Afghan Whig’s newest album celebrates their return to music as well as their success over the past thirty years. After the band’s split in 2001, lead singer Greg Dulli had a few side projects with his bands, The Twilight Singers and The Gutter Twins. Fast forward eleven years, and The Afghan Whigs reunited for a successful 2012 tour and sold out prestigious venues throughout the U.S. and Europe. Although the band thought that was the last time they would be playing together, they were unexpectedly reunited for a second time to perform a surprise set with Usher at SXSW in 2013. Back and better than ever, The Afghan Whigs are currently touring worldwide in support of ‘Do To The Beast’.

    The Afghan Whigs recently performed their new song, “Matamoros”, on Late Show with David Letterman. Watch their performance below!

    T-Pain

    News legend Larry King recently sat down with T-Pain on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” and played a good ol’ game of spin the wheel, but with an epic Auto-Tune twist. The two stars sang their answers to the question: “What would you do if you became president?” and the results are pretty hilarious. Check it out below!
