KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD and ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND
Sunday - 6/15/2014
8:00 PM | All Ages | $87.50
There are few artists whose names are synonymous with one instrument and how it's played in service to an entire genre. Utter the phrase "young blues guitarist" within earshot of anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the modern musical vanguard and the first name they are most likely to respond with will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Still barely in his 30s, the Louisiana [more...]

8:00 PM | All Ages | $40
One tempestuous weekend in March 1979 was not only the date of the Three Mile Island nuclear incident, but also, in Birmingham, England, the very first show by a nascent band known as The Beat. Introduced as "the hottest thing since the Pennsylvania meltdown", the band had a sense that the next few years could well be explosive! The Beat hailed from working class, industrial [more...]

Blue Öyster Cult was the thinking man's heavy metal group. Put together on a college campus by a couple of rock critics, it maintained a close relationship with a series of literary figures (often in the fields of science fiction and horror), including Eric Von Lustbader, Patti Smith, Michael Moorcock, and Stephen King, while turning out some of the more listenable metal music [more...]

JOHN HIATT AND THE COMBO & ROBERT CRAY BAND
Thursday - 7/3/2014
8:00 PM | All Ages | $95 - $110
John Hiatt's sales have never quite matched his reputation. Hiatt's songs were covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and the Neville Brothers, yet it took him 13 years to reach the charts himself. Of course, it nearly took him that long to find his own style. Hiatt began his solo career in 1974, and [more...]

THE TUBES
Sunday - 7/13/2014
8:00 PM | All Ages | $40
The Tubes were arch satirists of popular culture whose outrageous performance-art concepts -- which swung wildly from soft-core pornography to suit-and-tie conservatism -- frequently eclipsed their elusive musical identity. The beginnings of the group originate in Phoenix, Arizona in the late '60s, where guitarist Bill Spooner, keyboardist Vince Welnick and bassist Rick Anderson [more...]

Everyone knows Better Than Ezra. They're the million-selling band with hits like "Good" and "A Lifetime" that sells out venues coast to coast and enjoys a legion of fans so faithful they've dubbed themselves the Ezralites.

Galactic is a collaborative band with a unique format. It's a stable quintet that plays together with high musicianship. They've been together so long they're telepathic. But though the band hasn't had a lead singer for years, neither is it purely an instrumental group.

CULTURA PROFÉTICA
Thursday - 7/31/2014
8:00 PM | All Ages | $28

Cultura Profética does not limit its aesthetics with strict musical classifications. The music is rich in sound, rhythm and dissonance. Their base is "roots reggae" with touches of salsa, bomb, ska, jazz, funk, Brazilian music and an undisputed synthesis of the roots of Afro-Caribbean rhythm, including incursions into the "world music".
