Honda Civic Tour Featuring Grouplove & Portugal. The Man – Sat, Aug. 16 (show: 8pm, admission: $35-40)

 

Grouplove

After scoring success with their chart topping single “Tongue Tied” and spending over two years on the road supporting their 2011 debut Never Trust A Happy Song, Grouplove took less than a week’s break before beginning work on their new album, Spreading Rumours. Spreading Rumours sees Grouplove elevating from a band of friends jangling together music and words without much direction into focused artists making a beautiful album together – standing behind one vision and a sound that is uniquely their own.

Watch their video for Tongue Tied.

 

Portugal. The Man

Six full-length albums in six years, nonstop touring, a stint with The Black Keys and festival stops at Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, Portugal. The Man embodies all dimensions of DIY rock range.

Watch their video for Modern Jesus.

 

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones – Sun, Aug. 17

At a time when so much of the industry’s output has become the musical equivalent of junk mail, listening to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones is like receiving a series of postcards from a vacationing friend: handwritten, infectiously fun, wish-you-were-here inclusive, and, overall, personal. (show: 8pm, admission: $38.50-$44)

Watch their video for The Impression That I Get.

 

 

Groundation – Thu, Aug. 28

Bursting forth from their underground status, Groundation has taken the music world by storm. Capturing the essence and drive of true roots reggae, the widely renowned band takes the art form to new heights by blending elements of jazz, funk, salsa, soul and transcendental dub in a progressive amalgam of sound all their own. (show: 9pm, admission: $16.50)

The Avett Brothers – Fri, Aug. 29 – Sun, Aug. 31

(show: 8pm, admission: $59)

Watch their music video for Murder in the City.

ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL:

Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand’s third location. With three levels spanning over 80,000 square feet, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is one of the largest performance venues in America and is described by People Magazine as being “on the fast path to being Vegas’ über cool place.” Located at The LINQ, the open-air district in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, the multi-dimensional space boasts 32 lanes of bowling, five bars and a restaurant and private boxes featuring rockin’ comfort food by the world-renowned Bromberg Brothers’ Blue Ribbon Restaurants, including their iconic Fried Chicken celebrated on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” On any given night, more than 2,000 concertgoers can enjoy live music programming from the general admission area, the luxurious bowlers’ lounges adjacent to the lanes, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all.

The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. Brooklyn Bowl New York has hosted countless notable performances, including shows by Kanye West, Adele, Paul Simon, Moby and Guns N’Roses and has been named Zagat’s “Best Music Venue – New York City” for three consecutive years (as well as “Best Bowling Alley” and “Best Brooklyn Venue”) and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone.  Eater described their menu as “epic,” while The New Yorker hailed the club’s unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling, and food as “like nailing a spare on a four-ten split.” The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at The O2 in London, and was hailed by The London Evening Standard as a “…wonderland of food, drink, music and pins”.
