In 2014, the album received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.

Dirty Heads
In 2003, punk rocker Dustin Bushnell (Duddy B) and rapper Jared Watson (Dirty J) came together to produce infectious and positive music. Shortly after, percussionist Jon Olazabal joined the duo to form Dirty Heads. As a trio, the group started playing shows together and growing its fan base before signing to Warner Bros. Before the group could finish its debut album, Dirty Heads decided to leave the label. In 2008, the group released their debut album Any Port in a Storm featuring the hit track “Lay Me Down.” Dirty Heads released its second album Cabin By The Sea in 2012 followed by its 2013 acoustic album Home-Phantoms of Summer.

New Politics
In the late 2000s, Danish indie rockers David Boyd, Soren H and Poul Amaliel formed the band New Politics. The group combined blends of pop, rock and electronic dance music and quickly became known for its high-energy sets. In 2009, the group signed to record label RCA and released its self-titled debut album in 2010. Two years later, New Politics released their sophomore album A Bad Girl in Harlem.

Big Data
Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the internet and was formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud. Helmed by producer Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.

His first single, “Walk a Little Straighter” peaked at No. 8 on the country charts and established him as a singer and songwriter of great substance. In 2005, he released his sophomore album Doin’ Something Right featuring his first two No. 1 singles, “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” and “Good Directions.” Three years later, he released his third album Little Bit of Everything, which included the hit tracks “People Are Crazy” and “That’s How Country Boys Roll.” In September 2013, Currington delivered We Are Tonight featuring the smash hit, “Hey Girl.”

At The Disco, My Chemical Romance and Duran Duran. In 2014, the band released its third album Pop Psychology which was largely influenced by Glenn and his challenges to find love in the digital age.

Saturday, July 18
8 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $50 GA

Since the band’s start in the late 1980s, Barenaked Ladies has sold over 14 million albums worldwide. The Canadian band found success when vocalists Ed Robertson and Steve Page started incorporating comedy into their early performances to hold the audience’s attention between sets. The combination of the duo’s humor and eclectic folk pop rock sound sealed the group’s fate as its popularity continued to grow into the early 1990s. The group grew into a true band with the addition of Jim Creegan (bass/vocals), Tyler Stewart (drums/vocals) and Andy Creegan (keyboards) and went on to release Yellow Tape, Canada’s first independently-released tape to reach platinum status. Shortly after, Barenaked Ladies signed with Sire/Reprise Records in 1992 and released its debut studio album Gordon featuring hits such as “Be My Yoko Ono,” “Brian Wilson” and “If I Had a $1,000,000.” Before the release of the band’s third album, Kevin Hearn (keyboard/guitar/vocals) replaced Andy Creegan, who left the group to finish college abroad. Over the next decade, the group released six more albums, toured around the globe and started its own label, Desperation Records. In 2009, Page announced his departure from the band. The now quartet decided to form a new label, Raisin’ Records, and released All in Good Time, the band’s first album since Page’s departure. In 2013, Barenaked Ladies released its 11th studio album Grinning Streak featuring the hit single, “Boomerang.”

Friday, Aug. 14
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $35 GA

Slightly Stoopid co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty were still in high school when they signed to Skunk Records. While at the label, the duo produced two albums, Slightly Stoopid in 1996 and Longest Barrel Ride in 1998. Over the next couple years, Slightly Stoopid’s sound matured with the addition of drummer Ryan Moran and percussionist and vocalist Oguer Ocon. In 2005, the group released Closer to the Sun, considered to be the group’s most successful album to date. The album mixed a number of musical influences including dub step, reggae and hip-hop and allowed the band to tour with a variety of acts over the years. The group took a brief break from touring to release Chronchitis in 2007 and followed up the album with an updated version of its 2005 EP Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid.

Father John Misty

Father John Misty
Thursday, Oct. 15
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $23 GA

Before adopting the pseudonym Father John Misty, singer and songwriter J. Tillman first made a name for himself playing drums in a pair of indie rock bands, Saxon Shore and Stately, while attending college in New York City. At that time, he began writing material of his own, citing the music of Nick Drake and Pete Seeger, and the writings of Flannery O’Connor, as key influences. During tours with Damien Jurado, Tilman produced a few CD-R albums and created a ready audience for his home-burned discs. In 2006, the independent Fargo Records label released Tillman’s first properly distributed solo album, Minor Works, and Keep Records reissued I Will Return/Long May You Run as a two-disc set the same year. In 2007, Yer Bird Records released Tillman’s fourth, more elaborately arranged album, Cancer and Delirium. Although his solo work continued to garner critical acclaim, he briefly shifted focus in 2008 by joining Fleet Foxes. The group toured heavily in support of its debut album, yet, Tillman continued working on his own material, releasing Year in the Kingdom in 2009. In 2011, Tillman left Fleet Foxes to concentrate on his many solo projects, using his pseudonym Father John Misty for 2012’s Fear Fun. In 2015, Tillman issued a second studio album under the moniker, the caustically funny and surprisingly sweet I Love You, Honeybear.

Brian Wilson with special guest Rodriguez
Friday, July 10
8 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $50 GA; Reserved prices starting at $70

Considered one of the greatest composers of the rock era, Brian Wilson got an early start when he formed The Beach Boys in 1961 with his two younger brothers Dennis and Carl, cousin Mike Love and childhood friend Alan Jardine. Heavily influenced by the harmonic blend of Four Freshman and the rock rhythms of Chuck Berry, Wilson went on to write a number of the group’s top hits including “Surfer Girl,” “In My Room,” “I Get Around,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Help Me Rhonda” and “California Girls.” After 1967, Wilson relinquished much of his control of the group to his brother Carl in order to focus on other projects. In 1988, Wilson released his first solo album featuring the hit single “Love And Mercy,” a song that often serves as a closing performance for his concerts. Following the release, Wilson continued to write and record music as a solo act as well as a member of The Beach Boys. By 2012, Wilson had officially reunited with the group in time to release That’s Why God Made The Radio, the group’s first album with Wilson in over 15 years. In 2014, Wilson began to tour and record as a solo artist again, with songs he had originally written for The Beach Boys. His latest solo album No Pier Pressure is set to release in April 2015 and features a number of guest stars from a variety of genres.

Known only by his surname, legendary singer-songwriter and self-taught guitarist Rodriguez began performing in bars and clubs around Detroit in the 1960s as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. In the mid-1970s, his music gained airplay in Australia and New Zealand where he became an overseas performer. Rodriguez was unaware that he had reached legendary folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. In fact, South African anti-Apartheid activists and musicians alike were profoundly inspired by his counterculture lyrics. In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. His story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, “Searching for Sugar Man,” which has given Rodriguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and throughout the world.
