For their fifth album, the Athens-bred/Nashville-based power trio the Whigs wanted to find the exact midpoint between raw and rehearsed. After more than a decade together-during which they’ve released four critically lauded studio albums and toured constantly as either headliners or openers for the likes of the Drive-By Truckers, Kings of Leon, and MGMT-the three members all agreed that they wanted to flex their muscles a bit: write some good songs, get them down as tight as possible, hit , and tear shit up.

Tickets go ON-SALE Friday September 26th. Buy them HERE.

*JUST ANNOUNCED* SONS OF BILL ON NOVEMBER 4TH

Very excited to announce a new show today – SONS OF BILL make their Gasa Gasa debut on November 4th.

Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the Sirens LP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012. The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic. But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.

Sons-of-Bill-Hi-Res-1

Tickets are $8 in advance & $10 at the door. The Kid Carsons open.

In 2012, Seattle production duo ODESZA began as a recording project between Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) after graduating from Western Washington University. Their first release, Summer’s Gone, was a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping bass lines. Two tracks from Summer’s Gone, “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen,” reached #1 on the Hype Machine Popular chart, cementing the duo as a force in the underground electronic community.

2013 saw the release of the My Friends Never Die EP with three of the five tracks hitting #1 on Hype Machine. Relentless touring followed, including dates with Pretty Lights, Emancipator, Michal Menert, and performances at Sasquatch Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, What The Festival, Summer Meltdown, Capitol Hill Block Party, MusicfestNW, Decibel Festival and Symbiosis Gathering. The duo was playing to larger and larger crowds when Pretty Lights tapped ODESZA to be the support act on the fall Pretty Lights tour and to remix “One Day They’ll Know,” which also hit #1 on Hype Machine and #8 on the iTunes Electronic Chart. Also in 2013, ODESZA selected their favorite producers for a follow up remix EP, My Friends Never Die Remixes, and launched the ambitious, ongoing mixtape series NO.SLEEP.

February 2014 brought the release of the ODESZA single “Sun Models (feat. Madelyn Grant)” off the forthcoming new album which also hit #1 on Hype Machine. In March 2014 ODESZA’s remix of Pretty Lights’ “Lost And Found” was released on the DIVERGENT movie soundtrack and hit #1 on Hype Machine, the duo’s eighth #1 on Hype Machine.

ODESZA’s first headlining tour this spring has numerous sold out shows across the country.

*JUST ANNOUNCED* WHAT MADE MILWAUKEE FAMOUS @ GASA GASA

What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. Singer/Songwriter Michael Kingcaid has employed a diverse range of musicians in the past decade, priding the band on not being backed into any corners, stylistically. With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn’t Kill Us on Seattle’s Barsuk imprint, the band was touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse songwriting into instantly, addictive hooks. Their “elegant pop” (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS’s prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand.
