Art Alexakis, front man/principal member of the 1990s alt/rock band Everclear, tends to put together a tour of similar bands and artists each year or so, and he’s doing it again in 2019. But while in past years, the Summerland tour was a full rock concert going around the country and playing warm, outdoor venues, this one’s entirely different. Dubbed the Songs & Stories tour, it’ll be a stripped-down, acoustic affair with Alexakis and some of his pals. Namely, Max Collins of Eve 6, Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne and John Wozniak of Marcy Playground. Collectively, that group’s responsible…

Each spring, vinyl record enthusiasts throw a holiday for themselves in the form of Record Store Day. Artists release exclusive, limited-edition or otherwise rare and highly-sought titles for the occasion, and fans flock to brick and mortar music stores around the world. This year’s day is Saturday, April 13. On Tuesday, the 2019 Record Store Day Ambassadors were unveiled, and this year’s honor goes to Pearl Jam. That’s a truly perfect distinction for the long-running, formerly “grunge” act from the Pacific Northwest, as they’re devout fans of spinning the “black circle,” after all … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T3oMcrqDn_4 Pearl Jam follow recent Ambassadors…

It’s been three years since Nancy Wilson and Ann Wilson went out on a proper Heart tour, but on Monday the classic rock icons announced the Love Alive tour, which will head out across the United States this summer with a host of special guest performers. Specifically, support for shows will come from a rotating group of excellent female-focused rockers Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile, Elle King and Lucie Silvas. Needless to say, this will be a special tour indeed. The schedule: Tue 7/9 St. Louis, MO +& Thu 7/11 Chicago, IL +& Sun 7/14 Toronto,…

The ‘tribute act’ can take many forms, but at its core it generally serves as fan service, allowing like-minded musicians to gather and play the hits of another band or artist’s catalog at a noisy dive bar on a Friday night. They’re fun, but aren’t necessarily much more than that. Los Angeles-based Linkin Park tribute act In the End, however, is much more than that. Billing itself a “The Premier Linkin Park Experience,” the group pays homage to one of the most successful rock/metal bands of the past twenty years and has for a few months now. Of course, the…

The guys in Cage the Elephant are ready to make some noise again, and that’s exactly what the indie/rock band did on Thursday with the premiere of a new song called “Ready to Let Go,” which was premiered in the form of a music video directed by front man Matt Shultz: The song is the first preview of the band’s upcoming fifth full-length album, Social Cues, which will be out on April 19 and is the follow-up to 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty, which earned the band a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Much of the new album’s material…

Break out your warm-weather clothes and start budgeting, as the official Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival lineup for 2019 was announced on Wednesday. Headlining each weekend of the fest in April will be Childish Gambino, Tame Impala and Ariana Grande. The full lineup, which features acts from across all music genres — a trait the Goldenvoice-produced event has come to be known for in recent years, after starting out as a strictly “rock” festival back when it started, can be seen below: https://twitter.com/coachella/status/1080682180764811264 And the full lineup in text-based format (in case you don’t want to squint staring at…

In September, it was announced that a massive self-titled box set was in the works paying tribute to the late Chris Cornell, who passed away in May 2017. Today, that set is out, and it’s just about as reverent a musical tribute to Cornell could possibly be. A mercurial but endlessly gifted songwriter and vocalist, Cornell dabbled in all corners of the musical landscape. After starting with the grungy Seattle sound of Soundgarden, he would later front Temple of the Dog (a supergroup with members of Pearl Jam, among others), Audioslave (with members of Rage Against the Machine) and forge…

The concept of a “hologram tour” might make some cringe, sure — but it’s happening, so you’d better get used to it. Eyellusion, the company responsible for this cutting-edge technological advancement as a means of presenting live shows from artists that have passed away, was already working on a Frank Zappa hologram tour, and now it’s set its sights on a Ronnie James Dio hologram tour, as well. The iconic hard-rock icon died in 2010, but Eyellusion is planning 100 live shows in 2019 featuring a hologram likeness of the singer. The Dio hologram made its first appearance in 2015 at…
