Danielle Miraglia comes armed with a strong steady thumb on an old Gibson, an infectious stomp-box rhythm and harmonica with tunes ranging from heart-felt to socially conscious that will move both your heart and hips. On her latest “Glory Junkies” she’s joined by a killer cast of musicians blending the classic rock vibe of The Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin with Danielle’s signature lyrical ability to explore human nature at its best and worst. Danielle was nominated for a 2015 Boston Music Award for Singer-Songwriter of the Year. “Danielle is a dynamic and captivating musician; her rich soulful voice and blues guitar mastery resonate in a performance both rare and unforgettable.” – Paul Patchel, State Street Blues Festival – Media, PA “The genius of Glory Junkies is that Miraglia successfully pokes fun at a proverbial “selfie nation,” while also fully owning that tendency. Glory Junkies offers up deeply narrative lyricism and carefully crafted compositions…Glory Junkies boasts a song about reality TV, and one (the title track) that pokes fun at immortalizing one’s own image. Others stray into more personal territory, hitting close to home on Miraglia’s family dynamic, but the concept of the album remains a mainstay throughout.” – Liz Rowley, BestNewBands

Simon Green, aka Bonobo returns with his sixth album – the masterful, magisterial “Migration” – is a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and indeed, beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, “Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life.”

Adrian Belew is a legendary guitarist well-known for his diverse travels around the musical map. He is a multi-instrumentalist whose solo records are critically acclaimed. His moving singing voice and prolific songwriting has endeared a loyal fan base of music lovers. His music is being discovered everyday by more and more listeners thirsty for great music with a creative standard not often pushed by the commercial music industry. Adrian first appeared on the guitar-world radar when he toured with Frank Zappa who later said, “Adrian reinvented electric guitar”. Adrian’s signature tones, unique use of effects and whammy bar remains completely different, and his techniques continue to be a huge influence on today’s guitarists. He was guitarist, songwriter and frontman Progressive Rock Powerhouse King Crimson for over 30 years. “Discipline”, Adrian’s first record with King Crimson, is listed among the most important rock records ever made. Belew has had a career that commands both awe and respect from fellow musicians and loyal fans, from his first solo record “The Lone Rhino” to The Atlantic Records hit album “Mr. Music Head” or any of his other 20 solo records that push sonic boundaries while maintaining artistic integrity. Adrian shreds on guitar but also writes beautiful songs that will make you cry. Yes, Adrian has taken his fans on a wild ride through countless world tours and albums with David Bowie, Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson, NIN and Paul Simon. He truly is the Twang Bar King! Meanwhile, Belew continues work on the latest additions to his FLUX project, including an album called FLUXbybelew and an in-app addition entitled FLUXation. FLUX is ‘music which is never the same twice’. To accommodate the original concept FLUX was released on iTunes as a music app for iPhone and iPad (the only one of its kind, available on iTunes at bit.ly/FLUX_cd) with the app downloaded, you press Play to activate 30 minutes of music, songs, sounds, and visuals which will never happen again in quite the same way. that’s because of some very clever algorithms and a huge amount of content.

Waka Flocka Flame doesn’t give a fuck about what you think. The riotous rapper, who penned hits like “O Let’s Do It” and “No Hands,” has undergone an artistic transformation since his 2010 bombastic debut “Flockaveli.” He’s experimented with his sound but always with the focus on growing as a rapper.

The Queens-bred, Atlanta-based MC is always thinking outside of the box on wax. When you hear Waka’s scratchy voice over electro beats by Neon Dreams or Steve Aoki, it’s his way of showing that trap music isn’t his only trick. “I’m trying to open people’s brains up,” Waka says. “You don’t have to be stuck in a fucking bubble. You don’t have to do this kind of music because people say you are this kind of artist. I do electronic music just to get out the bubble.”

Born Juaquin James Malphurs, the 28-year-old rapper rose to prominence as Gucci Mane’s protégé and his flagship artist of 1017 Brick Squad. In 2009, Waka put trap back on the map, dropping the first volume of his street classic “Salute Me or Shoot Me” that caught fire with songs, “We On The Way, “Dreads N Gold” and his breakout single “O Let’s Do it.” The mixtape’s buzz allowed Waka to release his proper debut “Flockaveli” in October, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 100. Here, Waka’s authenticity was a major selling point. None of Waka’s stories about his struggle were fabricated. “When I was making ‘Flockaveli,’ I just didn’t give a fuck,” he says. “I didn’t give a fuck about the awards. I didn’t give a fuck about how people felt. I just didn’t give a fuck ’cause I didn’t know. I never knew the outcome of these words.”

Together with Southside and Lex Luger’s thunderous production, Waka helped revive street raps and his sound began to blow up. Following his sudden popularity, hip-hop’s mainstream elite like T.I., Drake and B.o.B wanted to collaborate with him while he spread his influence to a host of new rappers like Wooh Da Kid and Frenchie. On Waka and Gucci’s 2011 collaborative effort “Ferrari Boyz” and 2012’s “Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family,” Waka’s high energy is the sole reason why he’s earned the nickname “Turn Up God.” That style translates into the EDM world Waka calls home now, where he fell in the love with the genre during a tour in Europe two years ago. “Music is like anger management,” he says. “It’s fun. You get to express yourself.”

On June 1, Waka Flocka is ready to express a new musical direction in his Atlantic Records debut “Flockaveli II.” Set to feature production from Southside, Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, and more, Waka wants this album to return to the basics that made him a rap star. For “Flockaveli II,” he’s approaching his third studio album the same way as his previous projects: trap banger after trap banger. His laid-back demeanor makes him a fan favorite, and he’s hoping that his straightforward creative process will please his core fans. “I’m cocky when it comes to my fans and my music ’cause I know my fans talk to me,” he says, noting that 31 tracks are already laid down for the LP. “I want my fans to look at they haters like, ‘Told y’all my boy was gonna go hard. Fuck y’all.’ I want my fans to hear ‘Flockaveli II,’ and I want them to put a dread wig on and shake their head and rock with me.”

While Waka Flocka has flooded the streets with mixtapes, including March’s recent release, “The Turn Up Godz Tour,” he doesn’t want to place high expectations on “Flockaveli II.” But, it holds a lot of sentimental value because the LP is also releasing on the birthday of his late brother Kayo Redd. Kayo was a firm supporter of Waka’s music from the beginning, encouraging him to always put out his music to satisfy his fans. “That’s like a birthday gift to my brother ’cause he’s a diehard,” he says.

With 1.3 million followers on Twitter (@WakaFlockaBSM) and a million followers on Instagram, he’s become the second most active celebrity on social media platforms, as well as the second most searched name on Google. Waka Flocka Flame is also cultivating a steady EDM presence thanks to touring with Steve Aoki and appearing on songs by DJ-producer Borgore and Flosstradamus. While fans have to wait for his EDM album “Turn Up God” releasing sometime this year, they can anticipate that “Flockaveli II” will have his no-fucks-given attitude on full display.

“‘Flockaveli II’ is for the streets. It’s for the people,” Waka says. “‘Flockaveli II’ is just the savior of the party.”

She has the melodies and the timing - she’s irresistible.” — Jon Pareles, The New York TimesWith a time-stopping voice, born in New York but simultaneously roughed up and refined by New Orleans and Mississippi, Shannon McNally has cut a singular path through the musical landscape - one that includes a Grammy nomination and a place on the stage with a who's who of rock, country and soul: Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Bonnie Raitt, Vince Gill, Levon Helm, Charlie Sexton, Dr. John, Bobby Rush, Luther and Cody Dickinson, Derek Trucks, and most recently, Americana legend Rodney Crowell who took the producer's chair for her upcoming release on Compass Records, a collection of transcendent folk-blues and country-rock songs that are poised to solidify her place as a peerless Americana songwriter and performer."Only Gram Parsons' term "Cosmic American Music" begins to touch her mercurial, changeling roots aesthetic, . .. McNally is a Zen-like, post-Beat song poet” —Thom Jurek, All MusicFrom Rodney Crowell:I first heard of Shannon McNally through John Leventhal, who described her vocal skills as having just the right amount of girlish smoke. At the time I was looking for just the right singer to make a cameo appearance on a song I was recording called “Famous Last Words of a Fool.” Trusting John’s appraisal---from his description I imagined something of a cross between Joan Jett and Lauren Bacall---I set about tracking the mystery singer down. What I eventually discovered in the small town of Holly Springs, Mississippi was this dark-eyed beauty who wrote grown-up songs, played a pretty mean Fender Stratocaster and, at times, sounded a lot Jesse Mae Hemphill. From our first meeting I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was the right man for the job of shepherding the next Shannon McNally record into existence. Now that the record is made, I hope music lovers around the world will come to know what I and many others already know: This girl belongs in the Americana Music spotlight.

Quickly blazing a name for themselves with their progressive approach to American folk music, Fireside Collective delights listeners with memorable melodies and contemporary songwriting. Formed in the mountain city of Asheville North Carolina, the band plays original songs on stringed instruments, intended for a modern audience. Following the release of their debut album “Shadows and Dreams”, the band hit the road seeking to engage audiences with their energetic live show built on instrumental proficiency, colorful harmonies, and innovative musical arrangements. Well what do you call it? “Bluegrass, Newgrass, perhaps Progressive folk…” These are some descriptions mandolinist and songwriter Jesse Iaquinto chooses to identify with. “Depending on where you come from and your experience with folk music, you may think we’re very traditional, or on the other hand, consider us a progressive act. We appreciate both ends of the spectrum and may lie on a different end on any given night.” While roots music lies at the core of the Collective’s songs, a willingness to explore the boundaries and present relevant new material remains fundamental. The band burst onto the scene in early 2014 following the release of “Shadows and Dreams.” The album weaves bluegrass, funk, rock, and blues influences into a refreshing representation of modern folk music. From the opening track “Poor Soul” with it’s energetic bluegrass overtones to the closer “Shine the Way Home”, the album takes listeners on a journey through simple love songs to complex themes such as metaphysics and coexistence. The album, recorded in Asheville at Sound Temple Studios, features guest musicians from Asheville’s rich acoustic music scene alongside members of the Fireside Collective.

Hot Thoughts, Spoon’s 9th album, is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their career, though keep in mind, Britt Daniel has already overseen a number of other reincarnations. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the band both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about Spoon are about to be obliterated. That’s not to say Hot Thoughts doesn’t have a requisite supply of infectious earworms — WE DIDN’T SAY THIS WAS A DIFFERENT BAND (though this is the first Spoon album with no acoustic guitar) — but there’s a lyrical bent that’s as carnal as it’s crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genre-smasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not fully consummated.

The ten songs on Hot Thoughts run the gamut from the kaleidoscopic opening title track (as tone-setting as say, “Dirty Mind” for the album it commences) through the gargantuan stomp of “Do I Have To Talk You Into It” and ubiquitous wiry hooks of “Can I Sit Next To You” to the bittersweetness of “I Ain’t The One” and the deadpan swing of “Tear It Down” — less the telling of an apocalyptic vision and more what Daniel describes as a song about “empathy for strangers.”

Ample recognition should be tossed in the direction of Dave Fridmann, whose wizard-level ingenuity has brought a diabolical sheen to the band’s swagger (there may be many great ways to occupy one’s time in Cassadaga, New York, but we do know that holing up at Fridmann’s studio to make a masterpiece is one of them).

Without question, the prior works of Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and no-longer-a-secret weapon Alex Fischel have scaled some lofty heights (from 1996 debut LP Telephono, 1998’s A Series Of Sneaks, 2001’s Girls Can Tell, 2002’s Kill The Moonlight, 2005’s recently reissued in deluxe 10th anniversary grandeur Gimme Fiction, through the trifecta of U.S. Top 10 albums that was Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007), Transference (2010) and They Want My Soul (2014), you’re talking about a winning streak that’s nothing short of Mayweather-esque), but Hot Thoughts is a daring, futuristic chapter in the Spoon story. Daniel’s spot in the pantheon of rock’s genius songwriters was established long ago—but with the crackling, incandescent, multi-dimensional backdrop conjured on Hot Thoughts, the lines between accessible and experimental become non-factors for once and all. It’s pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.

Resonant Rogues 10:00PM The Resonant Rogues is the songwriting soul child of partners Sparrow and Keith Smith. The pair met in Asheville in the Autumn of 2012, and their instant spark lit a blaze that could not be contained. Since then, they have dedicated their lives to crafting and sharing their music with the world, touring extensively across the US and Europe. The Resonant Rogues are difficult to define, but easy to enjoy. With a passion for folk music that spans continents and oceans, these songwriters bring a new relevance to old styles. The Rogues weave the threads of European, Middle Eastern, and American folk music together into a beautiful tapestry that simultaneously showcases tradition and innovation. Though the full lineup has shifted throughout the years, the soul remains the same, and stellar musicianship is a constant. Featuring a core sound of vocal harmonies, accordion, guitar, and banjo, they are often accompanied by fiddle, upright bass, and percussion. Lost Dog Street Band 9PM Lost Dog Street Band formed in the winter of 2010 after husband-and-wife duo Benjamin Tod (guitarist/vocalist) and Ashley Mae (fiddle player) parted ways with former musical project Barefoot Surrender. Originally conceived as a duet, Benjamin and Ashley quickly dedicated themselves to carrying the tradition of the American troubadour – hopping trains and hitchhiking across country while delivering their unique brand of original songwriting and tragic storytelling. Drawing from years of lonely tramping, and more than one tragic loss, Lost Dog Street Band has crafted a distinct sound that is best described as ‘dark country’ that never wavers from its roots and honors the traditions of its forbearers.

*21+ Only | $20 ADV or $25 DOS Comprised of: Tom Constanten: Original Grateful Dead pianist who played all the keyboards on the “Live Dead” recording, inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and was essential to Grateful Dead’s first ambitious/ experimental studio recordings “Anthem of The Sun” and “Aoxomoxoa,” and tours. Mark Karan: Lead guitarist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog and The Other Ones. Slick Aguilar who played lead guitar in Jefferson Starship & KBC for 26 years and with David Crosby Band before that. Tony ‘EngLESH’ Morley: Jefferson Starship bassist … and Joe Chirco, drummer with Bob Weir, John Kadlecik & David Nelson Band.- have joined for spring headline dates.  LIVE DEAD 69 performs the classic “Live Dead” (recorded in 1969) in its entirety for the first time anywhere ever, a laudable achievement unto itself. Moreover, they are the only touring entity that applies Grateful Dead’s classic zeitgeist of extemporization and interpretive improvisation beyond an ever expanding repertoire, much of which is created entirely ‘in the moment’ – without rehearsal or traditional ‘preparation.’ The players’ pedigree offers a unique familiarity with Grateful Dead’s halcyon material, and implies an improvisational prowess beyond anything else in the jam band oeuvre.

Brooklyn-based Phantom Pop has toured the east coast, southern, and Midwest U.S. Often compared stylistically to bands like Snarky Puppy, Kneebody, and Weather Report, Phantom Pop is driven by neo-soul influenced sythn lines, horn melodies, and aggressive rhythm section interplay. Their first self-titled album was selected by WNCW Radio as one of the Top 100 Releases of 2015. These guys will be joined by Metaphonia, A Prog-Funk band out of Boone, NC and Supatight out of Asheville, NC. These bands deliver a high energy live performance that is funk driven and appeals to a wide variety of audiences. Phantom Pop 7:30PM Originally formed in Brooklyn, NY by Dave Lowenthal simply to create an album, Phantom Pop has gone on to tour the east coast, southern, and Midwest U.S. Often compared stylistically to bands like Snarky Puppy, Kneebody, and Weather Report, Phantom Pop is driven by neo-soul influenced synth lines, horn melodies, and aggressive rhythm section interplay. Their first self-titled album was selected by WNCW Radio as one of the Top 100 Releases of 2015. Metaphonia 7:30PM Formed in 2014 in Boone, NC, Metaphonia is the Prog-Funk brainchild of bassist/vocalist Alex Golden and keyboardist Mike Runyon. What started as a trio between Golden, Runyon, and drummer Jason Burch, swiftly turned into a head-spinning chamber orchestra of math-dance-madness. With a current lineup also featuring Blake Bostain (trumpet), John Portela (saxophone), Jeremiah Brown (keys), and Erik Brandt (guitar), Metaphonia boasts some of the finest and most diverse talents in the high country. So, if funky, complex, and seldom-apologetic, satirical lyrical content sound up your crooked alley, Metaphonia is just the nonsense for you! Supatight 7:30PM Currently out of Asheville, NC, Supatight delivers a high energy live performance that is funk driven and appeals to a wide variety of audiences. While specializing in hard-hitting funk, their music incorporates elements of reggae, soul, jazz, and comedic country. Supatight blends intricately timed grooves with improvisational components resulting in an authentic, full sound, drawing diverse styles from every member of the band.

Twenty years after they began releasing records as the Indigo Girls, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have politely declined the opportunity to slow down with age. With a legacy of releases and countless U.S. and international tours behind them, the Indigo Girls have forged their own way in the music business. Selling over 14 million records, they are still going strong. Amy & Emily are the only duo with top 40 titles on the Billboard 200 in the '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s.

Along with Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers rank at the very top of all-time great duos. The sublime music-making- machine-skewering “Making Promises” is one of their finest rockers.” – The Boston Herald

After signing to Epic Records in 1988, the Indigo Girls released their critically acclaimed eponymous album to thunderous praise; it remained on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for 35 weeks, earned double platinum status, received a Grammy nomination for “Best New Artist” and won “Best Contemporary Folk Recording.” They were overnight folk icons who continued to live up to the high standards they’d set for themselves: they’ve since released 14 albums (3 platinum and 3 gold), received six Grammy nominations and have won one. Indigo Girls have toured with innumerable star acts including Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez, R.E.M., Sarah MacLachlan, Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

The duo has balanced their long, successful musical career by supporting numerous social causes – the Indigo Girls don’t just talk the talk; they walk the walk. Having established an intensely dedicated fan base, the duo continues to remain relevant and attract new fans. With their latest release, Beauty Queen Sister, released on IG Recordings distributed by Vanguard Records, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray have secured their spot as one of the most legendary musical acts of this generation.

Their 14th studio album finds the Indigo Girls operating as powerfully as at any time in their career, on a set of uncommonly strong songs performed with the kind of typically understated Nashville polish that affords their signature harmonies the full spotlight.” – The Independent (UK)

In 2015 Indigo Girls released their 16th studio album, One Lost Day, produced by Jordan Brooke Hamlin and mixed by Brian Joseph.

The Brattleboro, VT-based band LOW LILY (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music, creating a unique brand of acoustic music that is rooted yet contemporary. Low Lily is Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle). They are masterful players, composers and arrangers with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from Bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England and Old Time Appalachian sounds. Liz has developed a unique vocal and guitar style that draws from her musical history in the folk and ballad traditions of Ireland, England and America as well as contemporary folk music. She has performed with EVA, Long Time Courting, the John Whelan Band, and others. Flynn has toured worldwide with numerous notable acts in traditional and contemporary acoustic music, including John Whelan and Americana singer/songwriter Adrienne Young. Lissa grew up in Maine as an active member of the folk community, graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music and has performed as a solo artist and with Solas and Childsplay, among others. Together as Low Lily, these young but well-seasoned musicians bring their considerable strengths, experience and history together to create an undeniably rich and versatile musical palette. Their most recent self-titled album “Low Lily” received critical acclaim with a #1 song on the international folk DJ charts, and Sing Out! Magazine included it in their Best of 2015. “(Low Lily) takes roots music into areas that have not been explored fully and it sounds exceptional and refreshing” –No Depression

Uplifting, enlightening and hilarious with a voice that can burn the house down, Amy Steinberg is singer, songwriter and storyteller like none other. The main thrust of her work comes from marrying the sacred and profane, fusing the dreamlike nature of spirit with the rooted realness of sexuality and humor. She plays the piano and guitar with her own swingy rhythmic bounce, injecting shades of jazz, rock, hip hop, and poetry, all with a theatrical flair. Deeply soulful, with her bombastic belt she sings of self-love, open-mindedness, and the holiness of everything. She is touring in support of her 10th independent release, “Broken Open.” You don’t miss this one – it will be her last before moving out west!

Experimental electronic duo Zebbler Encanti Experience embarks on its most ambitious summer tour schedule ever. ZEE will harness the jaw-dropping power of his winged ZEEggurat setup, enlist the psybass skills of Sixis, and head out across the country covering much of the northeast, southeast, Midwest, Texas, and Colorado. This roving circus of sights and sounds will touchdown at New Mountain AVL on May 12! Zebbler Encanti Experience pairs the innovative visual design of VJ Peter ‘Zebbler’ Berdovsky (widely known for his work with Shpongle and EOTO over the years) with the forward-thinking audio wizardry of Ben ‘Encanti’ Cantil. The title track from 2015’s Inner G EP, released by Gravitas Recordings, has gained support worldwide from Bassnectar, Psymbionic and more luminaries of the underground bass scene.  Fresh off his first Australian tour, Ben Wyss wasted no time in releasing the latest Sixis EP on international taste-making psychedelic bass label Shanti Planti, The Last Question. The four-track EP sees Wyss diving even more deeply into his signature subsonic sound, full of gurgling synths and frenetic wobbles that evoke dazzling otherworldly landscapes. Sixis has performed at a number of major music festivals around the world and has a deep repetoire of selections.
