Doors 6PM / Show 7PM

World leaders, powerful CEOs, and assorted other fat cats could learn myriad lessons from Chromeo, but the number one tip that Dave 1 and P-Thugg have is this: Know thyself, know thy vibe, and stay thy course. The rest of the population will catch up. What this means is that Chromeo is really good at being Chromeo. The mission, the package, the vision—it’s been a straight shot of pure intentionality from the jump. These Chromeo dudes? They have the whole being-these-Chromeo-dudes thing totally wired.
And with the benefit of blessed hindsight, we can all see now that Chromeo stuck to it with the natural doggedness of the soulful heirs that they are. Funk a game plan—these guys had a ten-year battle strategy. When they released their first album in 2004, Rick James was still the Antichrist to all but the enlightened. Fast forward to today, and ‘80s funk—which makes up a major part of Chromeo’s DNA—is all over the charts.

Doors 5PM / Show 6PM

Since forming in 2009, LA-based indie band Grouplove has quickly become one of music’s most exhilarating young acts. By the time they released their 2011 debut full length, Never Trust A Happy Song (Canvasback Music/Atlantic), Grouplove was already a standout at music festivals around the world, including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading & Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. Produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin, Never Trust A Happy Song featured their debut single “Colours.” Hailed by SPIN as “one of the most infectious songs you’re bound to hear,” the song climbed to the top 15 at Alternative radio and continues to be a fan favorite. Their follow-up single “Tongue Tied” garnered even greater success, going to #1 and earning platinum certification, with sales exceeding one million. Grouplove’s raucous live show brought surging crowds to their Coachella and Bonnaroo performances and back-to-back sold out headlining tours. By the end of 2012, “Tongue Tied” was Alternative radio’s second most played song (following only Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”). The band has brought their undeniable energy to national television with appearances on shows including “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “Today.” Read More.

Doors 6:30PM / Show 7:30PM

James Mercer and Brian Burton a/k/a Danger Mouse have completed work on the first album by their new and ongoing band Broken Bells. Broken Bells features Mercer on vocals, guitars and bass while Burton plays organ, drums, piano, synths and bass. The pair play all the instruments on the album with the exception of a full string section arranged by Daniele Luppi. Broken Bells was recorded by Todd Monfalcone and Kennie Takahashi at Mondo Studio in Los Angeles and produced by Burton. Each a long-tim... (more)e fan of the other's work, Burton and Mercer first met face-to-face backstage at the 2004 Roskilde Festival in Copenhagen. The pair immediately hit it off and kept in touch over the prevailing half decade and in May 2008 seized the opportunity to finally collaborate on original music together. Once in the studio, the musical floodgates opened, an intuitive ease and seemingly ego-less telepathy producing an astonishing flow of new material over the course of a year. From more than 20 pieces of new music written and recorded, Broken Bells was assembled from 10 songs that coalesced together the most seamlessly.
