In 2012, Kevin Hart’s comedy tour Let Me Explain took him to 90 American cities along with Europe and Africa. Records have not withstood under his Let Me Explain tour, as Kevin became only the second American in history to sell out London’s O2 Arena. Kevin also released a feature-film version of this comedy show to movie theatres across the country in 2013. Previously, his Laugh At My Pain tour was so successful, it catapulted Hart to 2011’s number one comedian on Ticketmaster. This led to the “Laugh At My Pain” DVD hitting double platinum in February 2012, after being on sale for only a month. With his passion for stand-up and entertainment, Hart continues to tour the country to sold-out audiences

Hart has recently worked on the Chris Rock directed film “Top Five,” alongside Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfeld and Whoopi Goldberg. He has completed production on three additional comedies slated for 2015: Screen Gem’s “The Wedding Ringer,” “Get Hard,” opposite Will Farrell, and “Ride Along 2,” the sequel to this year’s $100 million blockbuster hit.

Earlier this year Hart starred in “About Last Night,” a remake of the iconic 1986 film which opened to huge box-office success.  The hilarious comedian, also a force in television, currently executive produces “Real Husbands of Hollywood” which premiered its third season in September 2014.

Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
Thursday, Sept. 18
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $20
Soul and R&B singer Charles Bradley didn’t become a recording artist by taking the easy route. Born in Gainesville, Florida in 1948 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Bradley spent a good part of his childhood living on the streets. A transformational moment came when his sister took him to see James Brown at the Apollo Theater in 1962, and Bradley was struck by the singer’s energy and stage manner. Bradley escaped Brooklyn by joining the Job Corps and then spent years moving around the country and working odd jobs, before he eventually relocated back to Brooklyn to work on his dream of becoming a musician. Bradley began performing his James Brown-inspired routines in local clubs such as Black Velvet, where he attracted a loyal following and eventually captured the attention of Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records. Roth immediately brought the singer into label sessions, releasing a single, “Take It as It Comes,” showcasing what Bradley had to offer as a vocalist. During this time he also met guitarist Thomas Brenneck, who released Bradley’s full album, No Time for Dreaming (2011), on his Daptone Records sub-imprint, Dunham Records. The singer received global acclaim for the album and toured relentlessly to support it. His follow-up, Victim of Love, was released in the spring of 2013.

In November 2013 she released her debut EP, Sail Out, which included the tracks “Bed Peace” (featuring Childish Gambino) and “The Worst.”

 

HAERTS
Thursday, Oct. 2
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $15
HAERTS is a New York-based band whose members hail from Germany, England and the United States. The long-distance collaborative project came into formation when childhood friends Nini Fabi and Ben Gebert started working on music together in a small apartment in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood. Shortly thereafter, the two musicians picked up additional collaborators Garrett Ienner, Derek McWilliams and Jonathan Schmidt. Working internationally, the group sent files back and forth, toiling on their tracks and eventually sculpting an indie electro sound brightened by Fabi’s Stevie Nicks-inspired vocals. The band’s first single, “Wings,” produced in collaboration with St. Lucia’s Jean-Philip Grobler, was released online in 2012 to great response from fans. A year, later the band’s Hemiplegia EP was released on Columbia Records and work was underway for a full-length album.

 

Dum Dum Girls
Thursday, Oct. 9
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $15
In 2008, Kirstin Gundred (aka Dee Dee) began making solo recordings as Dum Dum Girls.  Dum Dum Girls’ first Sub Pop single, “Jail La La,” was released in early 2010, with the debut album I Will Be following soon after.  In 2011, He Gets Me High EP was released. Recorded just before her mother’s death, the record was cut by Dee Dee without her band.  A full-length sophomore album, Only in Dreams, appeared later that year featuring Dee Dee’s bandmates for the first time.  End of Daze followed in 2012, an EP consisting of tracks recorded just after the Only in Dreams sessions.

Dr. Dre dubbed the rapper “The New King of the West Coast” and signed Lamar to his Aftermath label. Lamar’s most popular album yet, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, was released in October 2012 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. Three of its singles — “Swimming Pools (Drank),” “Poetic Justice” and “B***h Don’t Kill My Vibe” — reached the Top Ten of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, with each one enjoying lengthy stays on playlists of urban U.S. radio stations.

Juicy J
In 2006, Juicy J, the founding member and front man of Southern hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song (“Hard Out Here For a Pimp” from Hustle & Flow). While most artists would look forward, Juicy J, born Jordan Michael Houston, decided to return to square one. He spent the next years creating a street team, shooting videos and releasing mixtapesall in the name of the collective Three 6 buzz. However, in addition to furthering the group, the rapper found a solo career that transformed him from one part of a colossal whole to a standalone superstar. Along the way, Juicy J met Wiz Khalifa and earned a spot in his exclusive touring rap crew the Taylor Gang. The experience inspired the rapper to build a foundation of his own called the “Trippy Movement.” The rapper’s debut solo project, Stay Trippy, has already gotten fans’ attention. Its single “BandzA Make Her Dance,” originally released on Juicy J’s Twitter page, is certified Platinum. As a solo act, Juicy J strives to record tracks that still appeal to Three 6 Mafia members, but speak to hip-hop’s next generation as well. While bridging the gap between old and new fans under one trippy umbrella, he has cracked a code most veteran rappers struggle to decipher. There is no doubt that making uncompromised music that anyone can relate to is Juicy J’s forte.

Interpol

Following Greg Drudy’s departure, Interpol became a core trio comprised of Paul Banks (vocals and guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar) and Sam Fogarino (drums). Hypnotic, bizarre and always indelible, the band never ceases to amaze.

Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
Soul and R&B singer Charles Bradley didn’t become a recording artist by taking the easy route. Born in Gainesville, Florida in 1948 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Bradley spent a good part of his childhood living on the streets. A transformational moment came when his sister took him to see James Brown at the Apollo Theater in 1962, and Bradley was struck by the singer’s energy and stage manner. Bradley escaped Brooklyn by joining the Job Corps and then spent years moving around the country and working odd jobs, before he eventually relocated back to Brooklyn to work on his dream of becoming a musician. Bradley began performing his James Brown-inspired routines in local clubs such as Black Velvet, where he attracted a loyal following and eventually capturing the attention of Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records. Roth immediately brought the singer into label sessions, releasing a single, “Take It as It Comes,” showcasing what Bradley had to offer as a vocalist. During this time he also met guitarist Thomas Brenneck, who released Bradley’s full album, No Time for Dreaming (2011), on his Daptone Records sub-imprint, Dunham Records. The singer received global acclaim for the album and toured relentlessly to support it. His follow-up, Victim of Love, was released in the spring of 2013.

The meeting led to a recording contract with J Records/Sony Music and the release of King’s debut album East Side Story, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album of the year. King has toured with John Legend and Floetry and opened for major artists, including Gnarles Barkley, Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu, before parting ways with her label in 2008.
