Wed 05/25 WPTS Radio presents The Vaccines with special guests Nevada Color 8:00pm All Ages
"With 'English Graffiti,' we've embraced modernity. I'm immensely proud of it." Few modern British guitar bands have had such an instant impact as the Vaccines. Emerging in the summer of 2010 with blend of retro surf punk, Ramones guitars and Everly Brothers pop hooks, their high octane, ultra-melodic sound saw them instantly adopted as the hot new guitar band on the block. The London four-piece -- Justin Hayward-Young (vocals/guitar), Freddie Cowan (guitar), Arni Arnason (bass) and Pete Robertson (drums) -- had only formed in early 2010, but in early 2011, debut album "What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?" quickly achieved platinum status. Just 18 months later, the follow-up, "Come Of Age," hit Number One.

Fri 05/27 91.3 WYEP presents Miike Snow with special guests MUNA 9:00pm All Ages
At first, the question was: Who is Miike Snow? It was a fair question, especially as the group arrived in a mysterious fashion in 2007. Formed by Swedish musicians Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg, childhood friends who collaborate under the production moniker Bloodshy & Avant, and American songwriter Andrew Wyatt, Miike Snow began as an idea rather than a band. It was an experiment: Could you create left-­‐leaning pop music that combined clear, sparse songwriting and hook-­‐laden, muscular mainstream production? The gamble paid out tenfold as Miike Snow unveiled their self-­‐titled debut album in 2009 to sizable acclaim, emerging into the musical landscape to fill a previously empty space. The group’s eclectic, inspired take on music transformed the music scene, with other artists following suit to their innovative approach. In 2012, the band’s sophomore effort, Happy To You, arrived, further expanding the experimental possibilities of their songwriting and sending them touring across the globe.

Mon 05/30 Eagles of Death Metal with special guests Thelma and the Sleaze 8:00pm All Ages
Eagles of Death Metal is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme. Despite their band name, Eagles of Death Metal is not a death metal band. The story goes that a friend was introducing Josh Homme to the death metal genre. When he played a song by the Polish band Vader and made a claim that the song was within the death metal genre, Homme then referred to Vader as "The Eagles of Death Metal". After hearing this phrase, he wondered what a cross between the Eagles and a death metal band would sound like. With that, the band was born.
