Tue 07/26 Parachute - The Wide Awake Tour with special guests Brynn Elliott, Jerad Finck 7:30pm All Ages
Back when they were in high school, Parachute’s Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher “Kit” French (saxophone, keyboards) spent nearly every afternoon in Anderson’s basement, dreaming up songs showing a deep affinity for classic pop, heart-felt rock, and tuneful blue-eyed soul. Now, after a decade of touring internationally and turning out smash singles like “She is Love” (#1 at iTunes) and “Can’t Help” (the first single from the band’s 2013 album Overnight, which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 chart), Parachute are set to deliver a new album that reclaims the spirit that first sparked their love of music. “Making this record felt just like that one hour after school when we were kids,” says Anderson of Wide Awake, the band’s fourth full-length album. “It was like we were all 15 again and just starting to discover that excitement of creating songs together.”

Sat 07/30 Marianas Trench - SPF 80s Tour with special guests Skylar Stecker, Vertigo 8:00pm All Ages
When Marianas Trench’s lead singer Josh Ramsay came up with the title Astoria, he saw the album as a concept record based on 1980’s fantasy adventure films; specifically The Goonies, which is set in the seemingly doomed town of Astoria, Oregon. The idea was to let a classic coming of age movie inspire the music and overall feel of the record. Then, however, Ramsay had no idea the circumstances in his own life would result in a personal journey that took him from the highest high to the darkest point in his life and career. “A couple of years ago I felt on top of the world,” he says: “My band, finally, after years of work, signed a huge American record deal. We were headlining arenas in Canada. I’d been nominated for a Grammy for ‘Call Me Maybe,’ (Carly Rae Jepsen). I was engaged to the love of my life and it was like, this is my moment.”
