Sun 02/14 Never Shout Never with special guests Jule Vera, Waterparks 6:30pm All Ages
Youth, as they say, is wasted on the young. Christofer Drew kindly refutes that conceit. At the ripe age of 24, Drew and his band Never Shout Never recently released their seventh full-length album (not including a pair of EP’s!). A songwriter to be reckoned with since he was 16, Drew’s trajectory as a lyricist and tunesmith only rises, evolving steadily with each new release, as does his empire of fans. Tackling heavy subjects like truth, love, loss, and acceptance, he has developed a genuine talent for exploring the human condition from a place of positivity. And with the 10 crack cuts collected here on Black Cat, it’s not a stretch to label Drew a master of his craft, despite the fact that he still can’t legally rent a car. | example: Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Local Outlets
Mon 02/22 91.3 WYEP presents Kurt Vile and The Violators 8:00pm All Ages
Kurt does his own myth making; a boy/man with an old soul voice in the age of digital everything becoming something else, which is why this focused, brilliantly clear and seemingly candid record is a breath of fresh air. Recorded and mixed in a number of locations, including Los Angeles and Joshua Tree, b’lieve i’m goin down… is a handshake across the country, east to west coast, thru the dustbowl history (“valley of ashes”) of woody honest strait forward talk guthrie, and a cali canyon dead still nite floating in a nearly waterless landscape. The record is all air, weightless, bodyless, but grounded in convincing authenticity, in the best version of singer songwriter upcycling. In Kurt’s words, “I wanted to get back into the habit of writing a sad song on my couch, with nobody waiting on me. I really wanted it to sound like it’s on my couch — not in a lo-fi way, just more unguarded and vulnerable.” | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401
Tue 03/15 Rachel Platten - The Wildfire Tour with special guest Eric Hutchinson 8:00pm All Ages
Hands sweaty, heart pounding, Rachel Platten stands backstage at the International Soca Monarch Finals, about to take the stage for the very first time to sing in front of 80,000 people. This is moment that would forever change her life. “When I stepped on [that] stage, it was like I was struck with a bolt of electricity,” recalls the pop artist. “I had that aha moment of ‘Oh God, this is what I’m supposed to do with my life!’” In that moment, Rachel discovered her true calling, but making it a reality would take a bit longer. “All you need to know between now and then is that it was 10 years of accepting any and every gig, believing when there wasn’t much to believe in, and lots of cereal with no milk,” she says. In the next decade, groundwork would be laid for “Fight Song,” the first single from her Columbia Records debut. “Fight Song” is an uplifting anthem that perfectly embodies Rachel’s own vulnerability and power, with a “don’t give up” message that resonates across all audiences. | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401 | Tix on Sale 12/03

"I wanted to try to actually be a real live person, rather than just singing songs about them." — Thao Nguyen. Growing up in Falls Church, VA, Thao Nguyen first picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and began performing in a pop country duo in high school. She spent most of her 20s touring, supporting one critically acclaimed album after another. She's worked with a laundry list of vaunted artists including Andrew Bird, Mirah, Laura Viers, and producer Tucker Martine. She even toured the US with the nationally syndicated NPR radio program Radiolab. Thao's most recent album, We The Common, was described by The New Yorker as "music that makes you move from your bones out...[it's] keenly intelligent and original" and in November 2014, she performed on the world famous television show "Austin City Limits". She is currently working on a new album which will be released in early 2016. | Purchase Tickets Online | 866-468-3401
