Sun 10/05 Lil Dicky - The Professional Rapper Tour with special guest DJ Omega 8:00pm All Ages
Lil Dicky is the voice of the voiceless. In an era where rap is dominated by racial, social, and economic minorities, LD decided to put the upper-middle class on his frail, Jewish shoulders. The results have been monumental. His debut mixtape, So Hard, has been categorized as “funny,” and “impressive” by his friends. A non-traditional rapper, Lil Dicky uses a mix of comedy, lyrical ingenuity, and self-deprecation to spew out entertaining and relatable content.

Mon 10/13 OK Go [Rescheduled from 9/21 - all 9/21 tix honored] 8:00pm All Ages
Of all the superlatives ever thrown at OK Go, “world’s most creative band” might fit best. Theirs is a project of the modern age, defined by vision as opposed to boundaries. It starts with a growing canon of infectious songs (the band’s fourth album is forthcoming), and explodes out from there into a million creative endeavors: their videos are art projects that the whole world sees; their live shows are immersive and surprising; their free time is invested in apps and op-eds and a host of other experiments that all fall under fun, ambitious, or just really cool to try.

Tue 10/14 mewithoutYou Catch For Us The Foxes 10 Year Anniversary Tour with special guests The Appleseed Cast, Hop Along 8:00pm All Ages
"Some of you may have heard of a record we put out on Tooth & Nail Records a little while back called 'Catch for us the Foxes.' Well that little while back is going to be 10 years on October 15th of this year. Yes, its hard to believe, we know, it will soon be a full decade of Foxes. It is no secret that the album has been a much-lauded fan favorite of our catalog. And in many ways it is the album that helped launched the career of our band and set us on the path where we find ourselves today. That is why for our 10 Year Anniversary of the album we are going to be celebrating in a couple different ways. The first of which we’d like to announce right now…We will be playing “Catch for us the Foxes” in its entirety, front-to-back, from Torches Together to Son of a Widow. ...after the first 46 minutes of the set when we finish the album performance we’ll be playing a short set of various other tunes from our other albums."

Sat 10/18 tUnE-yArDs 9:00pm All Ages
Merrill Garbus has performed as tUnE-yArDs since 2009, and that band name has always been synonymous with forward movement—whether because of her explosive performance style or the always-surprising way in which her songs unfold. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called “a confident do-it-yourselfer’s opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter,” Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring. In 2011, tUnE-yArDs released its second album, w h o k i l l, a startling and sonically adventurous statement that led to a whirlwind period where Garbus and bassist Nate Brenner accrued accolades from critics (including the #1 spot on the Village Voice’s 2011 Pazz and Jop poll), performed in front of increasing numbers of rapturous crowds around the world, and collaborated with the likes of Yoko Ono and ?uestlove. It was a thrilling ride, but it was one that needed a little bit of recovery afterward.

Wed 10/22 Live For Live Music Presents: Lettuce with special guests Exmag 8:00pm All Ages
After celebrating their 20th anniversary as modern day rulers of old school funk, the Brooklyn-based juggernaut Lettuce Is not showing any signs of slowing. Having blown up stages from coast to coast last year, ranging from The Fillmore in San Francisco to Terminal 5 in NYC, Bonnaroo to Pemberton and all points in-between, Lettuce is poised to continue their rapid growth throughout 2014. “We’re more together and set to crush than ever before,” says drummer and chief songwriter Adam Deitch of the all-star group that he and his accomplished band-mates cut their teeth with back in their Berklee School of Music days. That much history, along with the A-list crop of projects that each member has taken on away from Lettuce, gives the group a bottomless well of musical ideas and unrivaled chemistry—in fact, referring to themselves as a band of brothers.

Sat 11/01 Blonde Redhead 9:00pm All Ages
BLONDE REDHEAD is excited to announce a new album set for 2014 release. Another sonic twist in their already adventurous canon... Blonde Redhead has always been a band that innovates with each album. They challenge themselves with each recording situation, and the results have been stunning every time. Their music is always inspired by the same emotions, but their tastes and ways they choose to execute those emotions are constantly evolving. It was the early conversations about how to make this record that led the band to work with the up and coming Swedish duo Van Rivers and The Subliminal Kid (Henrik von Sivers and Peder Mannerfelt) as producers on the record. Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck) also came on board to record the tracks that would eventually be used in Stockholm.

Wed 11/05 St. Paul & The Broken Bones with special guests Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas 8:00pm All Ages
Grit, elemental rhythm, tight-as-a-drumhead playing, and a profound depth of feeling: these are the promises of a great soul band. And St. Paul & The Broken Bones deliver on those promises. Half The City is the compelling full-length Single Lock/Thirty Tigers debut of the Birmingham, Alabama-based sextet, who have already created a maelstrom of interest with their roof-raising live shows and self-released four-song 2012 EP. Produced by Ben Tanner of Alabama Shakes, and recorded and mixed in the storied R&B mecca of Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the album harkens back to the region’s classic soul roots while extending the form with electrifying potency.

Sun 11/09 RL Grime 8:00pm All Ages
Seemingly out of nowhere, 22-year-old Henry Steinway aka RL Grime has risen the ranks to the forefront of what is a new generation genre-fusing artists, setting eyes on exploring the uncharted and reshaping modern music with every new track he makes. Releasing his debut EP Grapes in April of 2012 on LA’s WEDIDIT imprint, RL took little time in making a name for himself, garnering early support from some of the biggest DJ’s in the world, including Diplo, A-Trak, Skrillex, and Just Blaze. In 2013 he released his sophomore EP High Beams on Fools Gold Records, debuting at number 8 on Billboard’s electronic charts. RL Grime’s work as a remixer has also been met with great acclaim, clocking in official remixes for Benny Benassi, Chief Keef, Jamie Lidell, and Shlohmo – as well as a bootleg of “Mercy” by Kanye West, which has since received over 3 million plays on SoundCloud. With two EP’s and a world tour under his belt, 2014 looks to be RL Grime’s brightest year to date, continuing to refine his sound and further pushing the boundaries of what it means to be a producer in the 21st century.
