Ryan Adams

July 20, 2016

The Alt-country singer songwriter is back with a new self titled album and is touring the US in support. Since heading out solo in 2000, Adams has met with critical acclaim for his intimate and honest output. His first record, Heartbreaker was introduced the world to his bitter-sweet mind and he was touted as the new Gram Parsons.

Flight of the Conchords

July 24, 2016

Bret? Present. Jermaine? Present. Yes, the Grammy Award-winning Flight of the Conchords are back! The New Zealand duo are heading out across North America on a brand new tour, their first since co-headlining 2014's Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Tour. In even more exciting news, they have new material to play!

Garbage

August 1, 2016

The transatlantic alternative rockers have been going strong since 1993 when they formed in Wisconsin. Comprising Scottish lead singer Shirley Manson and US-native musicians Duke Erikson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig all four share songwriting duties and between them have sold over 17 million records worldwide. Brace yourself for the band's brand new album, Strange Little Birds, due to be released over two decades after their best-selling self-titled debut album, which featured the well-known anthems "Stupid Girl", "Queer" and "Only Happy When It Rains".

The Go-Go's

August 13, 2016

Formed in 1978, the Go-Go's were one of the pioneers of the 'girl band' genre, being the first all-female band to not only write their own songs but also play all the instruments themselves! They're still considered to be one of the most successful all-female bands of all time, and have sold more than seven million albums.

Band of Horses

September 22, 2016

Led by Ben Bridwell, Band of Horses do anthemic, wistful American indie better than anyone. Drenched in reverb and glittering guitar tones, they trade in vulnerability while still playing songs bursting with hooks and fist-pumping choruses.
