Last Summer On Earth 2015 Tour: Barenaked Ladies with special guests Violent Femmes and Colin Hay
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.”

Over the next couple years, Slightly Stoopid’s sound matured with the addition of drummer Ryan Moran and percussionist and vocalist Oguer Ocon.

In the summer of 2005, Marley released Welcome to Jamrock, a successful album combing reggae and hip-hop influences.

 

Morgan Heritage
In 1994, the children of legendary reggae singer Denroy Morgan came together to form the band Morgan Heritage. After a performance at the Reggae Sunsplash Festival, the group signed with MCA Records and released its first album, Miracle.

After the release of its second album, Protect Us Jah, the group shrunk to five members including vocalists Roy “Gramps” Morgan, Peter Morgan and Una Morgan; percussionist Memmalatel “Mojo” Morgan; and rhythm guitarist Nakhamyah “Lukes” Morgan. Over the last two decades, the band has produced a number of hit singles including “Protect Us Jah,” “Let’s Make Up,” “Set Yourself Free,” “Mama and Papa” and “Tell Me How Come.” In April 2015, Morgan Heritage released Strictly Roots, featuring appearances by J. Boog, Chronixx, Bobby Lee of SOJA and Jemere Morgan.

 

Tarrus Riley
The son of singer Jimmy Riley, Tarrus Riley is considered one of the most gifted second generation Jamaican reggae singers. In 2004, Riley released his debut album Challenges produced by popular Jamaican saxophonist Dean Fraser. Two years later, he released his sophomore album Parables featuring the hit single “She’s Royal.” Riley followed up the album with Contagious in 2009.

Father John Misty with special guest Mikal Cronin
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.

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.

Dirty Heads and Pepper Party at Mandalay Bay Beach Friday, August 8

Tickets Now on Sale

The eclectic band Dirty Heads and Hawaiian trio Pepper will take over the Mandalay Bay Beach stage and perform at the open-air venue Friday, Aug. 8 at 9 p.m. The two groups will spend the summer months touring together in support of their latest albums. Dirty Heads’ fourth album, Sound of Change, is scheduled to be released in July while Pepper’s self-titled sixth studio album was released in late 2013.

Tickets are priced at $39.50, not including applicable service charges, and are now on sale. Tickets are available at all Las Vegas Ticketmaster locations (select Smith’s Food and Drug Centers and Ritmo Latino). To charge by phone with a major credit card, call Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Tickets also are available for purchase at mandalaybay.com or ticketmaster.com.

Dirty Heads’ breakout album Any Port in the Storm was released in 2008 and included the hit track “Lay Me Down” featuring Rome of Sublime with Rome. The track spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart before the band released its sophomore album Cabin by the Sea in 2012. The following year Dirty Heads released its first fully acoustic album, Home – Phantoms of Summer: The Acoustic Sessions, which debuted on the iTunes charts’ Top 5. For the aptly titled album Sound of Change, scheduled to release in July, the band expanded its sound with songs varying from club bangers to rap tracks. The album also will include a pop hit, but throughout Sound of Change, Dirty Heads still maintains its reggae-rock feel good vibe. The band’s previous work featured talented artists such as Del the Funky Homosapien, Matisyahu, Rome and Ky-Mani Marley, among others.

Pepper has toured extensively with groups including 311, Slightly Stoopid, Flogging Molly and Sublime with Rome and also have been featured in the movies “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Good Luck Chuck.” After releasing five albums, Pepper has opened a new chapter in their storied career. The resulting album, self-titled to accentuate where the band feels they are presently, broadens Pepper’s style, veering into new sonic territory while still retaining all the fun elements that make the band so beloved by their fans. The ever-present sense of life surges through the tracks, bolstering the sense of optimism throughout. From their debut Give’n It to their 2006 standout album No Shame, Pepper has embodied not only a style of music but a lifestyle, one that’s most easily found on beaches across the world, but also one that’s relatable to anyone anywhere.
