The Irving Plaza building was originally a hotel, until 1927 when the building was completely renovated and turned into a ballroom-style theater. It was then named Irving Plaza and was used for a variety of music, dance and other events. In 1978, Irving Plaza was converted into a rock music venue and now hosts many well-known artists.

December 8, 2015

Purveyors of glorious indie post-rock and dream pop Deerhunter burst out of Atlanta, Georgia with an ambient genre-bending sound in the early 2000s, overcoming the death of original member Justin Bosworth and forming anew in 2005. Now they have a whopping seven studio albums under their belt and are currently touring their latest offering Fading Frontier.


December 14, 2015

There are few more impressive sounds in rock than Sleater-Kinney at full throttle. The indie icons are touring throughout early 2015 in support of comeback record No Cities to Love. If lead single Bury Our Friends is anything to go by, the trio remain just as mighty as ever.

Eliades Ochoa & Babarito Torres: Estrellas de Buena Vista Social Club

January 22, 2016

2015 saw the farewell tour of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, but that doesn't mean it's members are retiring! Guitarist Eliades Ochoa and laud player Barbarito Torres will bring the sun-drenched climbs of Cuba to the US when they hit the road in the new year, so break out your floral shirt and stave off the winter blues with their heady mix of salsa-infused latin jazz and feel-good Cuban traditional music.


March 28, 2016

London four-piece Savages gift the world another dose of stark, harrowing post-punk in 2016 with the release of their sophomore record Adore Life. One of the most intense live bands around, Savages translate the fierceness of their records to the live arena, with French frontwoman Jehnny Beth radiating a total focus at the front of the stage.


April 4, 2016

Chicago heavy metal stalwarts returned this year with their sixth album, and they're taking it across the country. Immortalized was the group's first record following their five year hiatus, during which they they pursued various projects, and it saw them sounding revitalised, bringing fresh energy to their brand of hooky, stadium ready choruses and unforgiving riffs.
