If I had to recommend some shows to you, and you know that I will, check out Marnie Stern. She looks all innocent and pop, but she is getting the best reviews for album of the year! Dag yo! That is some praise!
Under Byen brings their noise to the MainSpace as well. Haunting and lush, like Blonde Redhead or Bjork.
Stay cool, hot dogs, and see you at the club for a cold one.

Marnie Stern with band! feat. Zach Hill from Hella on drums, Puttin' On The Ritz
Kelefa Sanneh, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Yes! It's hard to muster a more nuanced response to Marnie Stern, a previously obscure shredder and yawper who has just released the year's most exciting rock 'n' roll album. True, there are 10 months left, but you could spend at least half of them puzzling your way through "In Advance of the Broken Arm," her riotous debut... This raucous, wriggly music will certainly make Ms. Stern a cult sensation, and no doubt she's not expecting anything more than that. But don't imagine that this album is some sort of endurance test: it's too joyful, and too pretty, to be considered difficult.

Under Byen, Benzos
UNDER BYEN performed at the Danish music business festival SPOT where the reputable American Rolling Stone journalist, David Fricke, spoke of the band as his favorite band of the year. The excitement continued when he introduced the band in 2003 with these words:
"Welcome to the best band in Denmark, probably the best band in the world."

Bob Schneider and Band
This fine piece of Texas strum and drang just came back from touring with the Dixie Chicks. This tall drink of "yes please" wears his musical influences on his sleeves. You never know what to expect.

Volcom Tour 2007 Featuring Riverboat Gamblers & Valient Thorr w/ Totimoshi & ASG
Any tour that features my boys, the Riverboat Gamblers has got to be loud, sweaty, punk'ed out and not to be missed.

The name is forever etched as one of the greatest bands of the 90's thanks to a now legendary performance with Nirvana on MTV Unplugged. We are honored to have them on 8/29 and 8/30.

"Absolutely timeless... they sound like Gangsta Boo over JJ Fad tracks... Brilliant. You need this." - Vice Magazine
"First amazing surprise of SXSW07: The glorious electro-rap of Yo Majesty, three party ladies from Florida... Think ESG meets The Geto Boys. Or something. Beautiful." - The Onion AV Club
"Our current get-up-and-go-out soundtrack. 'Fuck that shit' is as much as we can memorize on our favorite cut 'Club Action,' but we're alright with that. Your DJ nights need this track: - Stereogum
"Yo Majesty take their cue from ESG and bang out hip hop infused new wave disco jams." - DJ Magazine
