Gov't Mule

May 17, 2017

Jam rock gods Gov't Mule are hitting the road this fall. The band - an off-shoot of The Allman - are recognised as one the leaders of Southern Jam Rock, with every show offering up a totally unique improvised experience.

Elvis Costello

June 15, 2017

Elvis Costello will celebrate one of his greatest records on these select number of 2017 dates. 1982's Imperial Bedroom and Other Chambers was one of Elvis' most ambitious efforts, a string-laden double album, containing the tracks 'Man Out of Time' and 'Almost Blue'.

PJ Harvey

July 19, 2017

Emerging into the British rock scene of the early 90s like a hurricane, Polly Jean Harvey set about taking names and kicking ass. Released in 2016, her latest album The Hope Six Demolition Project is a politically-minded effort, drawing on subjects as diverse as public housing in the US to the troubled history of Kosovo.

Regina Spektor

July 27, 2017

Idiosyncratic pop pixie Regina Spektor returns in 2016 with her new album Remember Us To Life. The follow-up to 2012's What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, Regina's seventh record is a lushly orchestrated effort packed full of the pitch-perfect pop that Regina has made her own, such as on the bouncy, electronically-tinged lead single 'Bleeding Heart'.

Young the Giant with Cold War Kids

September 13, 2017

The California-based indie rockers Young the Giant continue their tour into 2017, in support of their third studio album Home of the Strange. First coming to widespread prominence in 2010, their debut album was recorded old-school style, with a focus on only recording material that they could faithfully recreate for a live audience.
