Monday, April 11
8 p.m.; Doors at 6 p.m.
Tickets: $30

 

Floetry, the English neo soul duo comprising of Natalie Stewart (“the Floacist”) and Marsha Ambrosius (“the Songstress”), first began to capture attention in the U.K. during the late 90’s. Formed in 1999, having met through their love of basketball some ten years earlier, Ambrosius and Stewart began writing songs and playing shows in and around London on various performance poetry stages. A bold move to the States in 2000 allowed the ladies to accomplish what many U.K. artists fail to do; find success overseas, as America wholeheartedly embraced them. After moving from Atlanta to Philadelphia and signing a management deal with Julius Erving III, and becoming regulars at the infamous Black Lilly jam sessions, Floetry’s “poetic delivery with musical intent” captured the eye of DJ Jazzy Jeff and the ladies soon began recording with the Philly native. Signing a deal with Dreamworks by the end of 2000, Floetry recorded two studio albums “Floetic” (2002) and “Flo’Ology” (2005) and one live album “Floacism” (2003). “Floetic” sold over 788,000 copies in the United States alone. The album spawned the singles “Floetic”, the top ten songs “Say Yes”, and “Getting Late.” Following their success both in the charts and on the underground scene, Floetry released their live album “Floacism,” featuring the single “Wanna B Where U R (This Is A Love Song).” “Flo’Ology” followed with the release of “SupaStar” featuring Common.

The group has also included Gonzalez’ brother Yann and collaborators Morgan Kibby (vocals and keyboards) and Loïc Maurin (drums). 19-year-old Jordan Lawlor joined the groups as a multi-instrumentalist in 2011 when Gonzalez posted an open audition on the group’s website.

 

The Green with Protoje
Sunday, April 17
8:30 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $19

 

The Green formed on Oahu, Hawaii, in 2009. The group began as a vehicle for six different members of Hawaii’s tight-knit music scene to record a few songs and have a bit of fun along the way. Their self-titled debut album, released in 2010, earned both critical and commercial acclaim, and was awarded iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year. Afterwards, the band jumped on a plane to the mainland and started a heavy touring cycle. On the strength of their debut album, The Green struck a record deal with ground-breaking independent reggae label Easy Star Records to record their sophomore album, Ways & Means. Ways & Means hit number one on the iTunes and Billboard Reggae charts and the band embarked on more intense touring; supporting acts like Rebelution, Iration, SOJA and Damian Marley. They also played at acclaimed festivals including Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival and California Roots Festival. Their latest album, “Hawai’i ’13,” dances through roots reggae, soul, and R&B.

 

CHVRCHES with Wolf Alice
Thursday, April 21
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $25

 

The Glasgow-based CHVRCHES – pronounced, “Churches” – consists of Lauren Mayberry (lead vocals, synthesizers, samplers), Iain Cook (synthesizers, guitar, bass, vocals) and Martin Doherty (synthesizers, samplers, vocals). Touring in the wake of their Sept. 2015 release, “Every Open Eye,” the group will take a Vegas vacation in between bookend Saturday performances at The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (Coachella) in Indio, Calif. on April 16 and 23. Cook and Doherty come from backgrounds of more traditional instruments. Cook also composes for TV and film and played with the Scottish alt-rock group Aereogramme as one half of its later incarnation The Unwinding Hours. Doherty played keyboards for The Twilight Sad. Neither made music that sounded quite like this, until Mayberry – then working as a music journalist while singing with Glaswegian post-rock collective Blue Sky Archives, with whom Cook had previously recorded – turned up to help with a demo. “I was late, I didn’t know the way, it was Sunday buses, it wasn’t a good start!” she recalls – “And this is going to sound weird,” Doherty cuts in, “but within thirty seconds of hearing her singing with us I knew this was something special. The range, the tone, the way the voice worked over the synths – it was immediate. I’d heard her voice before and liked it, but I wanted to take it out of its comfort zone. Now there’s a power to the vocal we never heard at first.”

One of the premier West Coast gangsta rap artists of the early ’90s, DJ Quik was a rapper as well as a producer whose career carried on well into the next decade as he put his career aside and began working primarily as a beat-maker. Born David Martin Blake on January 18, 1970, in Compton, California, DJ Quik made a name for himself on the mixtape circuit during the late ’80s, compiling tapes also featuring fellow rappers AMG, 2nd II None, and Hi-C. On the basis of these mixtapes, he was signed to Priority Records and made his album debut with “Quik Is the Name” (1990), on which he produced all the tracks (as he would on each of his solo albums) as well as rap. “Quik Is the Name” proved quite successful, spawning two hits (“Tonite,” “Born and Raised in Compton”) and going platinum.

Umphrey’s McGee Presents UMBOWL VII
Friday, May 6
7 p.m.; Doors at 6 p.m.
Tickets: $109.50

 

UMBowl, centered around “crowd-sourced improvisation,” is one of Umphrey’s McGee’s biggest shows of the year. The show consists of four “quarters,” or sets, each with its own theme. Fans can expect tons of interaction from the band. In the past, set themes have included “Raw Stewage” where the band assembles a set based on votes from the audience on their favorite live moments and “All-Request,” a set based on requests from the audience cast by ballots (including new, unreleased options). Improvisation is what Umphrey’s McGee thrives on—and for one night, fans can experience an entire evening of music revolving solely around that improv talent.

 

Progressive rock band Umphrey’s McGee got its start at the University of Notre Dame in 1997. The original four band members Joey Cummins (keyboards), Brendan Bayliss (guitarist), Ryan Stasik (bassist) and Mike Mirro (drummer) got together after playing in various campus bands. After just eight months playing music together, the band released its first album, with the cheeky title of “Greatest Hits Volume III.” Umphrey’s McGee soon added percussionist Andy Farag, and it quickly became one of the most popular bands in the Notre Dame area. Guitarist Jake Cinninger was added in 2000, and the band made Chicago its new home base. Umphrey’s McGee is known for its affinity for playing live, and for its improvisational exercises. The band almost broke up in 2002 when drummer Mike Mirro announced he was leaving—after reviewing hundreds of audition tapes, Kris Myers was accepted as the new drummer. Altogether, the band has released nine studio releases and 10 live releases since its inception. It still plays more than 100 concerts annually and places importance on the art of live performance. Its most recent release, “The London Session,” was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, a notion that Bayliss told Rolling Stone seemed like “being asked to give a sermon at the Vatican.” It was recorded in just one day, and was dubbed by Rolling Stone as “a historical primer, an evolution story inside 51 minutes.”

By late 1996, Dru Hill had released their self-titled debut album, produced by Keith Sweat, Stanley Brown, and Tim “Dawg” Patterson. The single “Tell Me,” culled from the soundtrack to the film “Eddie,” became a Top Five R&B hit and later went gold. “Enter the Dru” followed in 1998, peaking at number two on the Billboard album chart. Despite Sisqó’s solo success with “Thong Song,” the group continued intact along with new member Scola and issued “Dru World Order” in 2002, two years after it was initially slated for release. Hits followed in 2005, eventually reaching three million in sales. Scola was later replaced by Antwuan “Tao” Simpson, and the group released its fourth studio album, “Indrupendence Day,” in 2010.
