2/20 – Infected Mushroom @ Concord Music Hall
If you couldn’t tell, we’re big fans of Concord Music Hall. And two weeks after Alison Wonderland rocks the house, the veteran electronic duo known as Infected Mushroom will do the same thing.
Infected Mushroom is currently on a worldwide tour in support of their latest album, Converting Vegetarians II, released last September. Known for their live performances and visual light show, they should be right at home in Concord’s intimate setting.
General admission tickets are still available, but stay tuned – because we’re giving away four free tickets next week.
2/21 – Chromeo @ Headquarters Beercade
Considering the only time I’ve seen Chromeo was in the vast North end of Grant Park, at Lollapalooza, I definitely thought “Headquarters Beercade” was a typo.
Nope. “The Funk Lords” are playing a DJ set in the gaming bar, and a ticket includes food and beer (we think). It appears the event sold out rather quickly, which makes sense because it’s Chromeo playing in a goddamn bar.
So yeah, you’ll have to hit StubHub to get a ticket. And call Headquarters to confirm what food or drink you get with.
2/22 & 2/23 – St. Lucia @ Thalia Hall
There’s a reason Thalia Hall is hosting St. Lucia on back-to-back nights.
That’s because Jean-Phillip Grobler is set to release his anticipated second album, Matter, at the end of January. The multi-talented Grobler – who mixes synthpop with his own vocals – made a Lollapalooza appearance in 2013 and will be at Bonnaroo this summer.
October’s “Dancing on Glass” single is already blowing up on Spotify, and both Thalia shows should be an early week treat. Get tickets before they sell out.
2/27 – Animal Collective @ Concord Music Hall
One of the more anticipated albums of 2016, Animal Collective’s Painting With is due to drop on February 19th. In other words, their show at Concord one week later is in high demand.
The gifted and diverse foursome of Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Deakin and Geologist have all progressed in their solo efforts since A.C. last produced music — part of the reason the release of Painting With is such a big deal.
And if lead single “FloriDada” – released in November – is any indication, all the talk and wait was well worth it. Of course, you could find out in person at Concord, but it’ll cost you about $90 on StubHub.
I’ll see you there.
