Umphrey's McGee

July 7, 2017

Blurring the lines between alternative rock, jazz, funk, metal, bluegrass and other genres still, Umphrey's McGee exploded out of the contemporary Jam Scene in the late Nineties with an inimitable fusion of improvisation and progressive rock that was influenced by the likes of King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa. Their 2016 has been a rollercoaster of tours and record releases, with a monster cross-country engagement lined up for early 2017, joined by fellow jammers, Arizona four-piece outfit Spafford for the majority of their dates.

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'.

All Time Low

July 31, 2017

Signed to a label before they even graduated high school, All Time Low have steadily built a loyal fanbase through their knack for fist-pumping chorus' and unabashedly pop aspirations. Following in the footsteps of Fall Out Boy et al, they've moved further away from the straightforward Warped Tour sound with every release, culminating in their most recent album Last Young Renegades, which revelled in its EDM and pop influences.

Dashboard Confessional and All American Rejects

August 3, 2017

The Boca Raton emo stars are gearing up for a mammoth cross-country trek this summer, joined in a supporting capacity Oklahoma rockers All-American Rejects! Best-known for the storming 2000 debut album Swiss Army Romance, DC, aka Chris Carrabba, followed it up in 2001 with The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most, cementing their fame thanks to heartfelt lyrics and a solid explosion of media coverage fandom. Having re-released Swiss Army Romance in 2014, there are rumblings of a new album on the horizon for the enduring emo punks.
