Anthony Green with special guests Dave Davison (Maps & Atlases), Psychic Babble
With his high-pitched vocals and prolific songwriting, singer Anthony Green had a hand in many bands throughout the 1990s and 2000s, including Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer, Saosin, Circa Survive, the Sound of Animals Fighting, and several smaller projects. Green was born and raised in Philadelphia, where he joined Zolof the Rock & Roll Destroyer in the late '90s before relocating to Southern California in 2003. There, he briefly joined the screamo outfit Saosin but ultimately left before the band signed to Capitol Records. He resurfaced with Circa Survive and remained with the group throughout the decade's latter half, during which period he also launched a solo career with the release of 2008's Avalon. In between the release of his debut solo album and 2012's Beautiful Things, Green went through some major life changes, including getting married and having a son. These personal shifts greatly influenced the songwriting and musical direction of his sophomore solo outing, with a deep focus on family, fatherhood and devotional love. -Andrew Leahey, Allmusic.com anthonygreenschildren.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets

Protest the Hero with special guests The Contortionist, The Kindred, Affiance
Combining technical metal and post-hardcore instincts, Whitby, Ontario's Protest the Hero are comprised of Rody Walker (vocals), Tim Millar (guitar/vocals), Luke Hoskin (guitar/vocals), Moe Carlson (drums), and Arif Mirabdolbaghi (bass/vocals). Starting as many bands do -- with a common musical passion found among high-school friends -- Protest the Hero worked hard on developing their own identity; their sound soon became reminiscent of a combination of Coheed & Cambria, At the Drive-In, and Every Time I Die. protestthehero.ca | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets

Anamanaguchi with special guest RSK
Anamanaguchi is a boy band made up of hackers and producers born & raised on the Internet, currently living in New York City. On May 14th, they released Endless Fantasy through their own brand new label, dream.hax Ė their ﬁrst album since soundtracking Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in 2010. Anamanaguchi started in Pete Berkmanís basement in the suburbs of New York where Weezer, snacks and Super Nintendo lived in equal rotation. At 15, he began experimenting with creating punk music using an 8-bit NES. Following bass player James DeVito to NYUís Music Technology program, Pete met Ary Warnaar who grew up in LA on raves, fashion and lazer tag. Ary began writing for the band, lending a more academic electronic-influence to Berkmanís capricious pop sensibilities. Later that year Luke joined as the bandís drummer via a MySpace message and then the band had fully formed. anamanaguchi.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Reserve Balcony | Local Outlets

Lindsay Rakers with special guests Coronado, The Artless
Lindsay Rakers has been making up songs and singing them to anyone who'd listen since she was a toddler, but now she's touching deeper subjects than her runaway cat (who never came back). She began fronting bands at the age of 17, when she started playing dive bars with her First Little High School Band in Pittsburgh, PA. Since moving to Atlanta, she has become quite at home with the music scene. The members of LRB just love to play, and it shows in their energetic live performance.
WPTS Radio Presents Foxy Shazam with special guests Gene The Werewolf, Dazzletine
When I listen to a Foxy Shazam record I think of Evel Knievel, Bruce Springsteen, my childhood, Van Morrison, my old friends from high school I donít talk to anymore, Elton John, the í50s, í60s, í70s, í80s, í90s and beyond, Iggy Pop and my first kiss. One of my favorite things to do when listening to my music is to close my eyes and picture a crowd of six million people all chanting ďFoxy! Foxy! Foxy!Ē The lights go out and my band walks on stage. It gives me goose bumps. It all makes sense to me. When you listen to our record, think of your favorite things and itíll make sense to you as well. Foxy Shazam is not concerned with what category it falls into. We want to stand for our generation. We want to be the biggest band in the world. We are the Michael Jordan of Rock Ní Roll. óEric Nally, Foxy Shazam foxyshazam.com | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Local Outlets
