Let Mumford & Sons Wait For You.
It's June 11, which means a couple things: Aside from being Peter Dinklage's birthday, it's the 162nd day of the year. Can you believe we're already an entire professional baseball season into this sucker?
Time sure flies. And the weekend is going to be here before you know it.
Our point? You gotta make every day count. Sure, it's just Tuesday. But there's tons of stuff to do tonight. So get out there and make the most of it.
Mumford & Sons and Gexa Energy Pavilion [Sold Out] Update: Due to a medical emergency, the band had postponed this and two other shows scheduled for this week.
Even before they cleaned up at this year's Grammy Awards, these guys were already one of the most popular folk acts around. Maybe it's deserved. I mean, how many other bands have you seen incorporate a guy that just plays a standing kick drum into their act? Oh, a whole bunch? (We're looking at you, Lumineers. And The Avett Brothers. And locals The O's.) Anyway, this show is already sold out. To be fair, though, so is every single June stop on the band's current “Gentlemen of the Road” tour.
Dragonette at House of Blues
This Canadian electro-pop outfit is almost as famous for their popular covers as its for its own material. My point? You're just as likely to hear Calvin Harris' “The Girls” or the theme to Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood at the House of Blues tonight as you are to hear something off the group's most recent LP, Bodyparts.
Torres at Three Links
After releasing her self-titled debut album under the Torres banner, 22-year-old Mackenzie Scott began to shift away from her cheerful, acoustic roots and started moving toward a much darker sound. The Nashville native credits this to the Gibson 335 electric guitar her family bought her for Christmas. More than just a new instrument, Scott was given the gift of an intense new sound. Brooklyn's Lady Lamb the Beekeeper and Denton's Chambers open.
Tigers Jaw at Dada
Before their current tour with Pianos Become the Teeth, Sainthood Reps and Dad Punchers, two members of the Scranton, Pennsylvania, indie outfit Tigers Jaw announced this would be their last tour with the group. Furthermore, the band as a whole added that this would, in fact, be their last tour overall — at least for the foreseeable future. So, check out the current incarnation of this mysterious, ever-changing band while you still can.
