Regatta Park

In case you didn’t know, NARD is a moving, powerful event dedicated entirely to animals. It started in 2011 in New York and since then, has become an annual tradition celebrated in various cities across the US and Canada!

After the ceremony, the event switches gears, with a celebration of the animals in our lives, and the steps that are being made every year towards ending their suffering, and adopting a plant-based lifestyle.

Reel Big Fish

Revolution Live

All-time Revolution favorites, Reel Big Fish was one of the legions of Southern California ska-punk bands to edge into the mainstream following the mid-’90s success of No Doubt and Sublime. Like most of their peers, the band was distinguished by their hyperkinetic stage shows, juvenile humor, ironic covers of new wave pop songs, and metallic shards of ska. The group cultivated an underground following that broke into the mainstream when their single “Sell Out” became a modern rock radio and MTV favorite. Still fronted by original lead singer and song writer Aaron Barrett, Reel Big Fish continue releasing albums and touring relentlessly, playing more and more countries and bigger venues all over the world.

Paramore

Donald Fagen and The Nightflyers

Fillmore Miami Beach

The legendary co-founder of the super group Steely Dan, Donald Fagen, comes to the Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater on Tuesday, August 8th, 2017 / 8PM for a special intimate performance. Tickets go on sale starting on Friday, April 28th / 10am.

Donald Fagen is one of the two masterminds behind the legendary jazz-pop band Steely Dan. Along with his longtime friend Walter Becker, they created a string of hits including “Aja,” “FM,” “Reelin In The Years,” “Deacon Blues” and many more.  His solo work has been a continuation of the band’s personna — carefully constructed and arranged, intricately detailed pop songs that are more substantial than their stylish surface may indicate. His solo debut, The Nightfly, was considered one of the best albums he had ever made; it covered the same ground as the previous Steely Dan albums, yet surpassed them in terms of ambition and achievement.  It was certified platinum for sales of over a million copies in the U.S. and reached 11 on the Billboard Top 200 albums list.  It was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Becker produced Fagen’s second album, Kamakiriad, which was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year and reached number 10 on the Top 200 albums chart.  Fagen has produced two additional well-received solo albums as well as publishing an autobiography titled Eminent Hipsters.  He and Becker still continue to tour frequently as Steely Dan.

Social Distortion

Fillmore Miami Beach

 Social Distortion has stayed strong for three decades on their own terms, on their own time, by their own rules, and over that time their influence has only grown. Each of their albums has been stronger than their last. They’ve been brought onstage by Bruce Springsteen, because he wanted to play one of their songs. They’ve seen high times and low ones, good days and tragic days, but every night they give 100%, and every morning they wake up still swinging.

Tove Lo

Revolution Live

Crafting an idiosyncratic blend of pop influenced as much by ’80s pop as by contemporary EDM and coupled with raw, brutally honest lyrics, Tove Lo made a name for herself as an award-winning performer and Grammy-nominated songwriter. Born in a suburb of Stockholm, she began writing poetry and short stories at a young age. She went on to study at the famous Rytmus Musikergymnasiet where she befriended the future members of Icona Pop. She decided to focus on her own songs, spending six months in her shed studio working on a demo. At a party celebrating Icona Pop’s first record deal, she used the opportunity to foist her demo on a staff member at their label, leading to a publishing deal with Warner Chappell and a trip to L.A. to work with fellow Swede and pop songwriting/production supremo Max Martin.

Epica, Lacuna Coil & Insomnium

Revolution Live

The world of symphonic metal is all about big ideas and high standards, but few bands have taken this most bombastic of genres to such momentous creative heights as EPICA. Formed in the Netherlands, these perennially dynamic masters of sonic opulence swiftly grabbed the world’s attention with their debut album, The Phantom Agony. With a fresh and vital sound that struck a sublime balance between orchestral grandeur and pure heavy metal grit, EPICA’s music has continued to showcase the compelling contrast between singer, Simone Simons’s soaring vocals and guitarist, Mark Jansen’s guttural growls; between Isaac Delahaye’s unstoppable core of scything riffs and keyboard maestro, Coen Janssen’s intricate, hugely cinematic arrangements and embellishments. All of this backed by a powerful tandem: Ariën van Weesenbeek blasting his drums and Rob van der Loo providing tasteful low end.  The lyrics, too, made EPICA stand out from the crowd, as they eschewed the traditional symphonic trope of fantasy and began to explore and dissect notions of philosophy, science and spirituality. This Dutch sextet are widely regarded as the genre’s brightest hope and international success is in their grasp.

Young The Giant + Cold War Kids + Joywave

Trombone Shorty (Two Nights)

Revolution Live

“gleaming, graceful, slightly gritty and distinctly modern.”—The Wall Street Journal

“an entertainer, whose music blends jazz, funk, R&B and whatever else will get the crowd jumping and shouting…

play it loud enough and questions of genre will fly away on the breeze from Andrews’ horn.”—Stereogum

“Parking Lot Symphony continues Trombone Shorty’s personal tradition of stunningly good musicianship, crowd-pleasing good material and just plain good fun… Andrews keeps the music close to his heart and his hometown.”—OffBeat
