Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Gramps Bar

Poplife Presents: Clap Your Hands Say YeahIn the middle of 2005, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah were being touted as the hottest unsigned act in America. The band’s self-titled debut — a collection of off-center indie rock songs and quirky pop tunes — was self-produced, self-released, self-promoted, and self-distributed, with a great deal of help from a wide network of bloggers and Internet supporters. There was so much online interest in the band that NPR even did a feature on the emerging phenomena of Internet band buzz, using CYHSY as the prime example. Although the band eventually signed with a label, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah continued blazing their own arty trail, releasing albums that were unconventional but still accessible.

Phoenix

Fillmore Miami Beach

The French group Phoenix draws elements from their eclectic ’80s upbringing to arrive at a satisfying blend of rock and synthesizers. The group got its touring start on the French bar circuit doing Hank Williams and Prince covers to drunken audiences. Two years later the band took on the name Phoenix and pressed 500 copies of a single on its own label, Ghettoblaster. The A-side was a punk rock song and the other a chugging Krautrocker, hinting at their eclectic tastes.  United, the group’s debut album was recorded over two months. From that point, they issued Alphabetical, It’s Never Been Like That, and their mainstream breakthrough, the critically adored Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.  Part of the extended break between the third and fourth albums was due to Vocalist Thomas Mars becoming a father (with his partner, director Sofia Coppola). Soon after finishing the Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix tour, the band embarked on some experimental recording sessions. They continued in Paris the following year and completed recording with the help of co-producer Phillipe Zdar, then mixed the songs on the console used to mix Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which the band bought online for $17,000. The result, Bankrupt!, appeared near the time of the band’s headlining gig at the Coachella Festival.  Mars says that even though Phoenix spent years on a major label, he and his bandmates have maintained an indie mentality.

X

Culture Room

X is an American punk rock band, formed in Los Angeles in 1977, among the first wave of American punk. The original members are vocalist Exene Cervenka, vocalist/bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom and drummer D. J. Bonebrake. The band released seven studio albums from 1980 to 1993. After a period of inactivity during the mid to late 1990s, X reunited in the early 2000s, and currently on tour celebrating 40 years!

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.
