As she has pursued songwriting, Cole has opened for Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, Kip Moore, Old Dominion, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Thompson Square and more at venues across the country.

Tickets: $25
The “CODE RED Experience” tour kicks off at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas and continues in cities throughout the country.

Monica’s musical journey started in College Park, Ga., when she began performing with a traveling gospel choir, following in her mother’s footsteps, an incredible church singer herself. She was discovered by hitmaker Dallas Austin, signed to Arista Records’ distributed label, Rowdy Records and by 13 became the youngest artist ever to score two back-to-back Billboard #1 chart-topping hit records with “Don’t Take it Personal (Just one of Dem Days)” and “Before You Walk Out of My Life.” Her 1998 album “The Boy Is Mine” was a crossover pop juggernaut—in addition to her duet with Brandy of the same name, “Angel of Mine” and “The First Night” would feature two more Billboard #1 hits and establish Monica as one of the most successful artists of the entire decade.

8 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $26
Jacksonville, Fla.  pop-punk alternative rock band found success with its 2003 album “Ocean Avenue” and hit single of the same name. The song quickly shot up the charts after premiering on MTV’s TRL program. The song “Empty Apartment” was featured on an episode of “One Tree Hill” and the band was featured on an episode of MTV’s “Real World/Road Rules Challenge.” The band’s second album “Lights and Sounds” centers on the band’s negative feelings towards Los Angeles. Yellowcard’s latest album, “Lift a Sail,” released in 2014, is marked by a decidedly more rock sound.

The word resurrection invokes the act of rising again, the possibility of revival despite opposing circumstances. There is no better for the title of New Found Glory’s eighth album. The collection of songs, produced by the band and engineered by Paul Miner, reflects four musicians determined to overcome no matter the odds. The Florida band, which has been creating infectious pop-punk since 1997, has learned to embrace the struggle and allow it to spawn a new beginning, opening a chapter where New Found Glory is stronger and more unstoppable than ever. The group has headlined Warped Tour, toured with Green Day and performed on the mainstage of festivals like Reading and Leeds, its songs connecting positively and universally with fans around the world.

John Brown’s Body with Pure Roots
Monday, Dec. 14
8 p.m.; Doors at 7 p.m.
Tickets: $15
Formed in Ithaca, New York, in the mid-1990s, at a time when there wasn’t yet a far-reaching U.S. reggae scene, John Brown’s Body was one of a small handful of U.S. reggae bands that began touring nationally. Since then, JBB has played an important role in helping define distinctly “American reggae.” JBB’s music is steeped in traditional vibes, but unapologetically incorporates elements from other genres. While most American reggae bands tackled typical reggae themes (such as religion and marijuana), JBB acted more like an indie band, writing songs that used the vocabulary of reggae to express the members’ own experiences. Its unique approach resonated with the masses. The group’s 2008 full-length record, “Amplify,” hit number one on the Billboard Reggae Chart, 2012’s JBB “In Dub” EP reached number one on iTunes’ Reggae Chart, and in 2013 “Kings And Queens” topped both Billboard and iTunes Reggae Charts at number one.

Warren G
Sunday, Jan. 17
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $25
As teenagers, Warren G, Nate Dogg and Snoop Dogg formed a group called 213 after their Long Beach, California area code in 1990. The trio dissolved when two of its members signed with Death Row Records, but Warren continued to develop his solo career. His big break came when his vocal collaboration with Mista Grimm, on “Indo Smoke”, appeared on the “Poetic Justice” soundtrack (1992). Warren’s outstanding rap led to a serious collaboration with his stepbrother, Dr. Dre. Warren G made major contributions to Dr. Dre’s album “The Chronic” (released in December 1992), including sampling for “Nuthin’ but a G-Thang”. Worldwide recognition as a solo artist came immediately after Warren G dropped the smash hit “Regulate”; a duet with Nate Dogg, which topped the charts in 1994. Overall, Warren G has sold eight to ten million records.

It’s been more than 20 years since Ben Ellman, Robert Mercurio, Stanton Moore, Jeff Raines and Rich Vogel began exploring the seemingly limitless musical possibilities born out of their work together as Galactic. Since then, the seminal New Orleans band has consistently pushed artistic boundaries on the road and in the studio, approaching music with open ears and drawing inspiration as much from the sounds bubbling up from their city’s streets as they do from each other. On its latest album “Into the Deep,” the band members look within themselves instead, drawing inspiration from people and ideas that have long been close to their hearts – and, in turn, close to the development of their unique sound. Shot through with soul, funk, blues and rock, the result is an organic riff on elements of Galactic’s past, filtered through the lens of where the band is headed in 2015.

It has sold over a million copies worldwide, is being streamed over three million times a week and has cracked the American Top 100 after relentless touring. “Riptide” has gone four times platinum in Australia, with its award victory lap including the prestigious ARIA Song of the Year award. With his debut album finally finished, Vance Joy is in the enviable position of the entire world wanting to hear it all at the same time. He’s already blacked out the next year for touring, on the back of nearly two years of touring since “Riptide” was a mere ripple.

Gary Clark Jr.
Saturday, March 12
9 p.m.; Doors at 8 p.m.
Tickets: $30
Ever since 2010, when Gary Clark Jr. wowed audiences with electrifying live sets everywhere from the Crossroads Festival to Hollywood’s historic Hotel Café, his modus operandi has remained crystal clear: “I listen to everything…so I want to play everything.” The revelation that is the Austin-born virtuoso guitarist, vocalist and songwriter finds him just as much an amalgamation of his myriad influences and inspirations. Anyone who gravitated towards Clark’s, 2011’s “Bright Lights” EP, heard both the evolution of rock and roll and a savior of blues. The following year’s full-length debut, “Blak And Blu”, illuminated Clark’s vast spectrum – “Please Come Home” is reminiscent of Smokey Robinson, while “Ain’t Messin’ Around” recalls Sly and the Family Stone. 2014’s double disc “Gary Clark Jr–Live” projected Clark into 3D by adding palpable dimension and transcendent power –– songs soared and drifted from the epic, psychedelic-blues of “When My Train Comes In” to his anthemic, hip-hop, rock-crunch calling card, “Bright Lights”, all the way down to the deep, dark, muddy water of “When The Sun Goes Down”. In September, Gary Clark Jr. released “The Story of Sonny Boy Slim.”
