Dinosaur Jr.

Culture Room

Dinosaur Jr. is now widely recognized as one of the most significant American rock bands of all time; the sound they pioneered in the late-80s having permeated through the past 20 years. Preceding Nirvana by several years, they were instrumental in bringing the crashing sounds of lead guitar back to indie rock. It wasn’t just their signature metallic haze that made an impression on listeners; their effects-laden guitars were wrapped around some of the best songwriting of the decade. The first three albums — Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me and Bug — were cult masterpieces and when the original line up of Mascis, Barlow and drummer Murph re-formed in 2005 for select live dates it was apparent that the years apart had not eroded any of their vitality. In fact, many critics claimed their shows were even better than they used to be. It was natural, then, that the band would begin to work on new material.

The Damned

Revolution Live

Cited as one of the most influential punk groups of all time, The Damned (Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxymoron, Pinch, and Stu West) contributed vastly to the gothic rock genre and influenced an entire generation of future hardcore punk bands with their fast paced energetic playing style and attitude. Along with the Sex Pistols and The Clash, they helped spearhead the punk movement in the UK. Now, four decades and ten albums later and still on the road, they continue to wave the flag for originality, stick two fingers up to mediocrity and celebrate a punk ethos in the face of plastic entertainment and scripted reality. The Damned are planning to record a brand new album, their first since 2008’s So, Who’s Paranoid?, for release in 2017 and this tour will be in support of this new effort.

The Head and the Heart

Fillmore Miami Beach

The Head and The Heart, brings their “Signs of Light” Tour to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Thursday, May 18th, 2017 / 8PM in a rare and most intimate performance.  Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, February 10th / 10AM.

The Head And The Heart’s 2011 self-titled debut album captured a nascent but undeniable creative partnership between six strangers thrown together by little more than a shared love of music. It became one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to acclaim well beyond its then-home base in Seattle. After taking time off from massive touring, The Head And The Heart regrouped last summer in Stinson Beach, Ca., to start writing together again, “it almost felt like we were a new band, trying things we hadn’t tried,” bassist Chris Zasche recalls. “We stayed at a bungalow on the beach. We’d wake up, have coffee and go boogie boarding. We were ready and excited to be back together.  That renewed sense of purpose can be felt throughout Signs Of Light,” the group’s latest release. “This album isn’t about us now having achieved our dreams,” says vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Charity Rose Thielen. “This is the album where we really fell into our true voices as those artists.”  Signs Of Light crackles with the upbeat, sing-a-long energy of The Head And The Heart’s finest work. Throughout, the colors are brighter, the electric guitars are louder and the musical touchstones more universal. It is a timeless-sounding album that could have been beamed straight out of an old jukebox.

Joe Jackson

Parker Playhouse

Joe Jackson is an English musician and singer-songwriter. After years of studying music and playing clubs, Jackson’s first release, “Is She Really Going Out with Him?” became a hit in 1979. This was followed by a number of new wave singles before he moved to more jazz-inflected pop music and had a Top 10 hit in 1982 with “Steppin’ Out”. He has also composed classical music. He has recorded 19 studio albums and garnered 5 Grammy Award nominations in a career extending from 1979 to today.
