***SOLD OUT*** Opus One & PromoWest North Shore presents Motion City Soundtrack: So Long, Farewell Tour with special guests Have Mercy, Let It Happen with special guests Have Mercy, Let It Happen
8:00pm All Ages
"It has been a quiet winter for us. We’ve had some time at home after a very busy 2015. With this time, we’ve been able to think about the past, present, and future of Motion City Soundtrack. All of this thinking has lead to several conversations, and these conversations have lead us to a very bittersweet realization: We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done. Needless to say, we’re feeling all the feels - you may be as well. If so, or if you’ve ever been touched by our music, we ask you to come out and sing along with us one last time in 2016. Thanks for all the love over the years. It really means a lot to us - and it always will." - Josh, Justin, Jesse, Matt, and Tony

Thu 06/09 91.3 WYEP presents Houndmouth with special guests Los Colognes 8:00pm All Ages
In the last four years, Houndmouth have learned what it means to be a band. On their second album, Little Neon Limelight, they wear that wisdom like a badge of honor. Less than a half-decade ago in the small Indiana city of New Albany, four pals were crafting tunes on their own, with few ambitions of turning those songs into a spectacle. That all changed when these friends crossed paths, and joined forces. Matt Myers, Shane Cody, Katie Toupin, and Zak Appleby became the drums and keys, guitars and harmonies of Houndmouth, and those personal numbers became the irrepressible core of an outfit turned magnetic.

Sat 06/11 Ty Jordan presents Ice Kream Man Tour with Ginuwine and special guest Karlos Farrar - Music by DJ Fellin, Hosted by DJ Afterthought 9:00pm All Ages
Ginuwine was one of R&B's preeminent love men during the '90s heyday of hip-hop soul. Initially teamed with Timbaland, the most innovative producer of the late '90s, Ginuwine's sultry, seductive crooning earned him a substantial female following and made him a regular presence on the R&B charts, even after the futuristic production he favored was eclipsed by the more organic, retro-leaning neo-soul movement. -AllMusic.com

Sun 06/12 91.3 WYEP presents Brett Dennen with special guest Firekid 8:00pm All Ages
As common and simple as it is, “por favor” is such an evocative expression. From Spanish, it translates to “please,” a word that suggests a need for something, a desire to make a change. “‘Por favor’ was something I kept saying every day in the studio, and I got the other musicians saying it,” says Brett Dennen. “We were goofing around, and Dave Cobb, my producer, said it should be the title of my new record. I laughed it off at first, but then I really thought about it.”

Since bewitching the nation at the age of 14 with her cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love,” Birdy has had to do a lot of growing up.

A long list of international accolades include, Best International Female (Echo Awards, Germany 2013) and Best International Female (Principales, Spain 2014) and many more. She has accumulated over 413 million views on Youtube and sold over 10.5 millions records worldwide to date.

91.3 WYEP presents Violent Femmes
8:00pm All Ages
Violent Femmes formed in 1981 as an acoustic punk band playing on the streets of Milwaukee. Their main influences at that time were Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps, and The Velvet Underground. Their goal was to rock harder than any other acoustic act on the planet. They were rejected for an audition by a local nightclub and set up outside a Pretenders gig. Chrissie Hynde asked them to open that night’s show. This gave the early Femmes a publicity boost which led to them being invited to play in NYC supporting Richard Hell. A rave review in the New York Times led eventually to a record deal, which in turn spawned worldwide touring.

Thu 06/16 WPTS Radio presents Saint Motel with special guests COIN, Weathers 8:00pm All Ages
For L.A.-based four-piece Saint Motel, every song holds the possibility for a spontaneous party. “That perfect moment in time where it feels like anything is possible. The kind of party where anyone is welcome but only a select few are invited,” says frontman A/J Jackson, whose bandmates include guitarist Aaron Sharp, bassist Dak Lerdamornpong, and drummer Greg Erwin. “It’s all kinds of people mixing together, and looking for these perfect, organic moments of beauty and danger.” As heard on Saint Motel’s breakout single “My Type,” that thirst for joyful eclecticism gets channeled into a retro-futuristic brand of pop that’s big on bright melodies, shiny hooks, loungey rhythms, and clever yet candid lyrics.

Sleep with special guests Windhand
8:00pm All Ages
The words have failed them all. Since by the time you've read this far you've already read words that are intended to be touchstones but which do nothing but make it easier to not hear what should be all about hearing: their music. So let's dispense with "stoner" and "doom" and while "metal" is a good catch-all even that does what SLEEP does an injustice. What SLEEP does and has been doing since 1990. Since San Jose. Since vocalist and bassist Al Cisneros hinted darkly at his next act after Asbestosdeath. Make something that was like something you had never heard/felt before even if you had heard/felt it before. Like wind or the yawning subsonic expanse of an earthquake: something undeniably large.

Sat 06/25 91.3 WYEP presents The Low Anthem 8:00pm All Ages
New Album EYELAND coming June 17! ""Rock" is not usually a term that describes the quiet, mysterious sounds of The Low Anthem, but the group dips into this territory on its new record Eyeland. The song "Ozzie," a tribute by founding member Jeff Prystowsky to the great shortstop Ozzie Smith. This inspired tune is the result of an afternoon of tape manipulation and fun with audio collaging." - Bob Boilen via All Songs Considered
