Capital Cities: Capital Cities is an American pop duo from Los Angeles, California, formed in 2010 by Ryan Merchant (vocals, keyboard, guitar) and Sebu Simonian (vocals, keyboard). Their debut EP was released on June 7, 2011, with lead single "Safe and Sound" which became their first top ten hit single.

The Bangles: Reeling from the December 8th assasination of John Lennon, guitarist Susanna Hoffs answered a classified ad placed by the garage-rocking Peterson sisters, Vicki and Debbi.

The trio soon formed a band - all of them wrote and sang, and with Debbi on drums, her sister Vicki on bass, and Susanna on guitar, the gurls began to delevop their signature sound - heavily harmonized 60's inspired rock that evoked California, but with an edge.

Bassist Annette Zalinskas was recruited to the group, Vicki moved to lead guitar, and they began to perform live - appearing first as "The Supersonic Bangs," soon shortened to "The Bangs." With LA-based New Wavers including The Dream Syndicate, Rain Parade, and The Hoodoo Gurus, The Bangs shared the spotlight of a rock revival critics dubbed "the Paisely Underground." The Bangs released the single "Getting Out Of Hand," which garnered radio airplay thanks to support from the band's longtime patron, Rodney Bingenheimer. Fame also brought the gurls some unwanted attention from a New Jersey group also called The Bangs, forcing a name change to the now-famous "Bangles."

In 1982 the Bangles were discovered by IRS President Miles Copeland, sealing their road to stardom. Under Copeland, they released a five song EP and hit the road as the opening act for The English Beat, selling 40,000 copies of their EP in the process, and earning industry attention.

As their star began to rise, the band hit their first real hurdles. Faulty Products closed, forcing a move to Columbia Records, and Zalinkas left the group, resulting in the addition of former Runaways lead singer Michael Steele on bass - cementing the lineup that would catapult the Bangles to top of the charts status.

The Bangles' first full-length album, All Over The Place, was released in April of 1984. It won favor with the college radio crowds, and the singles, "Hero Takes A Fall" and "Going Down To Liverpool," got extensive airplay at University stations. Subsequently opening for Cyndi Lauper's '84 tour exposed the Bangles to an ever-widening audience.

Released in 1985, Different Light, featured Prince's "Manic Monday", "If She Knew What She Wants", and the dance track "Walk Like An Egyptian", rocketing the band into overnight superstardom. "WLAE" accomplished the unprecendented task of hitting 1 on the Billboard charts for four weeks in a row - a feat no other all-female band had achieved. A smash national tour and awards including Single of The Year, Best MTV Video Performance, and a BMA helped solidify the band's star status.

Los Lobos: As pioneers of Chicano-Rock, Los Lobos has garnered Grammy-Awards, a #1 single, and nearly a dozen rock hits over their thirty-plus year career. Originally dubbed Los Lobos del Este (de Los Angeles), the East Los Angeles group shortened their name and released their first independent release in 1978. The original line-up has been touring and recording ever since and Los Lobos tour dates are scheduled throughout 2011. Don't miss a date on the Los Lobos concert schedule and stay on top of Los Lobos tour dates using Eventful.

Los Lobos achieved critical success with their 1984 release, How Will the Wolf Survive, which was produced by super-producer T-Bone Burnett. The album produced two top-forty rock singles and Los Lobos tour dates were scheduled on a national small venue tour. In 1987 they hit #1 with "La Bamba" from the bio-pic of the same name. Los Lobos earned two Grammy Awards in 1983 and 1987 in the Best Mexican-American Performance category.

Los Lobos continued to tour and record throughout the '90s Most notably, they released Papa's Dream in 1995 whose single "Mariachi Suite" won the band another Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. Los Lobos has stayed busy releasing several albums throughout the 2000s and their concert schedule will have them touring for the rest of 2011.

Irma Thomas: ........Irma Thomas: The Soul Queen of New Orleans, out now on Rounder Records! ..CLICK TO ORDER.... .. Irma Thomas, the reigning Soul Queen of New Orleans, celebrates 50 years as a recording artist, fully half of them spent as one of the most significant names on the Rounder Records roster. This collection brings together many of the best songs from her Rounder years, as well as three brand new tracks. Here is one of America's most distinctive and classic singers, a treasure from the golden age of soul music who remains as compelling and powerful as ever, at her very best. ....

..Following Hurricane Katrina, Fox News began circulating the story that Irma Thomas, along with other New Orleans music notables such as Fats Domino, had gone missing in the ensuing flood. The story spread through the media, and the phones at Rounder Records began to ring as concerned fans, friends and musical associates called to ask about her safety. As it turned out, the news report was false. She'd been gigging in Austin, Texas, and hadn't even been in New Orleans when the storm hit. What was clear was that the press was acknowledging Thomas as a treasured cultural icon who embodies the very soul of New Orleans.....Known for her 1960's hits such as "Time Is On My Side," "It's Raining" and "Wish Someone Would Care," Irma later won Grammy nominations for her live album, Simply the Best!, and her collaboration with Marcia Ball and Tracy Nelson, Sing It!, both on Rounder. Over the years, Thomas became a beloved favorite at the annual New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.....Thomas told the Boston Herald, "Well, I guess people thought I was dead. When I became somebody who was no longer around, I became somebody worth looking at." With her home, her nightclub and her other properties flooded and the mementos, photos and awards from her 40-year career lost, Irma still managed to find more than a few bright spots in her post-Katrina life. She and her husband, Emile Jackson, found a temporary home in Gonzales, Louisiana, near Baton Rouge. Since Katrina, she's appeared at September's Big Easy Benefit Concert at Madison Square Garden, on Jools Holland's BBC New Year's Eve telecast, at Switzerland's prestigious Davos Festival, on the Today show and on the recent Grammy awards.....Now, Thomas has returned to the studio for her first new album in six years, completed just a few days before her 65th birthday. With After the Rain, Thomas and producer Scott Billington celebrate their 20th anniversary of collaboration with an adventurous project that will both surprise and delight Thomas' fans. Said Billington, "Irma has one of the richest and most beautiful voices in contemporary music. It seemed confining at this stage of her career to make a straight R&B record, so we broke the mold." The result is a recording that frames Thomas' vocals with spare arrangements and many acoustic instruments, and with a repertoire that spans 75 years of great American songwriting.....Logistics for making the album were complicated by Katrina, which destroyed Ultrasonic Studio in New Orleans. The sessions finally came together at Dockside Studio in rural Maurice, Louisiana, with Ultrasonic engineers David Farrell and Steve Reynolds at the recording console. Billington assembled a dream team of Louisiana musicians, including keyboardists David Torkanowsky and David Egan; guitarists Corey Harris and Sonny Landreth; fiddler/fretless banjo player/guitarist Dirk Powell; acoustic bassist James Singleton; drummer Stanton Moore; and vocalists Juanita Brooks, Marc Broussard and Charles "Chucky C" Elam.....The album opens with a deeply soulful version of Arthur Alexander's "In the Middle of It All," before breaking into the fiddle-driven funk of the minor key "Flowers," from Nashville writers Kevin Gordon and Gwil Owen. The David Egan-penned ballad, "If You Know How Much," may have inspired Thomas' most powerful and emotional vocal performance on record in many years. Other highlights are a version of the traditional "Another Man Done Gone," with new lyrics from Thomas and Billington that explore the plight of those not able to return home, and the country song "Another Lonely Heart," by Los Angeles songwriter Eleni Mandell.....Perhaps what is most impressive about this recording is that Irma Thomas is now at the very peak of her powers, delivering every song with resonating feeling, honesty and that amazing voice, 46 years after her first recording. We don't need a hurricane, thank you, to remind us that this is one cultural icon who is sounding better than ever. .... .. .. .. .. .. .. ..................

Robert Plant: Robert Plant (born August 20, 1948, West Bromwich, West Midlands, England), is an English rock singer and songwriter, famous for his membership in the English rock band Led Zeppelin as the lead vocalist, as well as for his successful solo career. He is known for his powerful style, often mystical lyrics, and wide vocal range. As the lead singer of Led Zeppelin he is often defined as the quintessential rock front man, combining rare musical adeptness and knowledge with a large measure of stage bravado. As a solo artist, following Led Zeppelin's break up after the death of John Bonham, he is often credited for his wide range of musical taste and his ability to perform an eclectic range of songs in a refined manner.

Alanis Morissette: A dozen years after the breakthrough debut of Jagged Little Pill, an album which earned four Grammys and spawned a dedicated worldwide fan base, Alanis Morissette remains not only an enduringly popular artist, but one whose success stems from a fierce commitment to authenticity and, to an equal extent, vulnerability. Both of these traits enable her to climb to new ground with her forthcoming album, Flavors of Entanglement, due in 2008 from Warner Bros. Records.

Serving as her newest sherpa guide is British electronica producer Guy Sigsworth (Bjork, Imogen Heap), who co-wrote and produced the album with Morissette. Nearly two dozen songs were born from writing sessions in London and Los Angeles, a baker’s dozen selected for the final cut of Flavors of Entanglement. While hewing to a familiar process – creating songs as snapshots of her life – Morissette found cathartic support during a big transition in her life. “I often write in retrospect, but this time all was written in real time,” she says. “This record helped me through some fragile moments. Every song was like a life raft.”

Her penchant for eclecticism, whether musical, spiritual or otherwise, brought new sounds and styles into this latest effort, her first original studio album in four years. Eastern percussion and strings blend with electronic hues in the opening track, “Citizen of the Planet,” a poetic narrative of her life story and transnational perspective. Morissette’s yin/yang view of the microcosmic self being evidenced in the macrocosmic world extends to lead single “Underneath,” which reflects Mahatma Gandhi’s notion that “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

While deconstructing human behavior in the jarring “Versions of Violence,” Morissette offers a more personal take on being on the receiving end of crazy-making behavior with songs such as the hard-driving “Straitjacket,” the hauntingly beautiful lost-love lament of "Torch," the clear declaration of “Moratorium,” the hypnotic ebb and flow of "Tapes," and grateful in the aspirational “In Praise of the Vulnerable Man.” Morissette explores the often cyclical nature of learning in tracks such as the pensive, rock bottom-capturing “Not As We,” and the ecstatic freedom of “Giggling Again for No Reason,” before wrapping with the Phoenix-rising closure of "Incomplete."

"There's not another artist-male or female-who can take you on the kind of emotional journey that Alanis can," says Sigsworth. "She has this ginormous, super-massive, planet-eating emotional range. She goes all the way-10 on the Richter Scale-and we're at the epicenter with her as she sings whole worlds into existence. She can be raging and hostile, distraught and desolately heartbroken, glowingly nostalgic, sensual, breezy and self-deprecating-all in one album."

Born and raised in Ottawa, Canada, and Germany, Alanis Morissette played piano, wrote songs and discovered a love of words and dance at an early age. At ten she joined the cast of “You Can’t Do That On Television,” a popular children’s television program. She used some of the money she made on that show to start a record company with a friend and fund an independent single called “Fate Stay With Me.” When her time on the show was over, Morissette signed a publishing contract and eventually a record deal with MCA Canada, releasing the album Alanis in 1991, for which she won Canada’s Juno Award for Most Promising Female Artist. Her follow-up album, Now Is The Time, was released the following year.

It was 1994, when Morissette came to the U.S. and began working with producer Glen Ballard, that she found her own voice as a singer-songwriter. “I was 19 when I first felt that writing was a channeled experience. That has a lot to do with where I was at then, having met Glen, moving from Canada and moving away from any preconceived notions of how songs ‘should’ be written. It was the beginning of a new way to approach songwriting altogether,” she explains.

The result of their collaboration was Jagged Little Pill (Maverick Records), an emotionally raw collection of songs that introduced Alanis Morissette to the world and sold more than 30 million units worldwide. With heavy-rotation singles like “You Oughta Know,” “Head Over Feat,” “Hand in My Pocket” and “Ironic,” it became the best-selling debut album by a female artist in the U.S., and the highest-selling debut album worldwide. Nominated for six Grammy Awards including Best New Artist and Song of the Year (“You Oughta Know”), Jagged Little Pill won four trophies for Album of the Year, Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance (“You Oughta Know”). In 1997, a fifth Grammy for Best Long-form Music Video was bestowed upon Morissette for Jagged Little Pill Live.

Her next album, Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie, debuted at 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with record-setting first-week sales of nearly 470,000 copies. Morissette hauled in two more Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the string-laden rock ballad “Uninvited,” which hit 1 on Billboard’s Top 40 Mainstream chart. The Grammy-nominated single “Thank U” also reached 1 on the Adult Top 40 chart and 2 on Top 40 Mainstream. The MTV acoustic forum “Unplugged” yielded Alanis Unplugged in 1999.

Throughout the first half of the new decade, Alanis Morissette continued evidencing that she was an artist with something to say, and she would say it in her own distinct way. In 2002 Under Rug Swept debuted at 1 on the Billboard 200, its single “Hands Clean” reaching 3 on the Adult Top 40 chart. Two years later came So-Called Chaos, whose single “Everything” became an Adult Top 40 mainstay and “Eight Easy Steps” became a club hit as a dance mix. Morissette celebrated the ten-year anniversary of her breakthrough album with 2005’s Jagged Little Pill Acoustic. In November of that year, The Collection amassed a best-of anthology with 17 tracks that delivered favorites from previous albums as well as a well-received cover of Seal’s “Crazy” (an interesting foreshadowing, as it was originally co-written and produced by her future Flavors of Entanglement collaborator Guy Sigsworth).

Achieving success as a recording and performing artist, Alanis Morissette has lent her talents to other albums and forums. She’s been a guest vocalist on Ringo Starr’s cover of “Draft Away” on his album Vertical Man, “Don’t Drink the Water” and “Spoon” on the Dave Matthews Band album Before These Crowded Streets and other CDs. She wrote “Still” for the soundtrack of the controversial film Dogma and, after steadfast offerings by director Kevin Smith, agreed to play the role of God.

More recently Morissette appeared in the Cole Porter biopic De-Lovely and performed the classic “Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall in Love),” also contributing the song “W¸nderkind” to the soundtrack of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (earning a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song). Her songs have also populated such films as City of Angels (which earned her Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Female Rock Vocal Performance), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks II, The Break-Up and The Devil Wears Prada; on screen her other acting work includes roles on HBO’s “Sex and the City” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” along with a three-episode arc on FX’s “Nip/Tuck.” On stage, Morissette starred in The Vagina Monologues and in the off-Broadway play The Exonerated as death row inmate Sunny Jacobs. She recently completed her first lead film role as "Sylvia" in the film adaptation of Philip K Dick's novel Radio Free Albemuth.

Of course, she delivered one of the most memorable performances of her career last year with a riotous parody of the Black Eyed Peas' hit "My Humps." Entertainment Weekly lauded the YouTube sensation, which has been viewed more than 12 million times to date, as one of the top downloads of '07 and praised Alanis for "revisiting the age-old question, 'What you gonna do with all that ass, all that ass inside them jeans?'"

Among a breadth of charity work, Morissette especially finds time to support environmental causes and organizations, such as Reverb, a non-profit that helps musicians and music fans to achieve environmental sustainability through carbon-neutral initiatives. Morissette was one of the first artists to have her “Feast on Scraps” CD and DVD materials on recycled paper. Initially she paid for this out of her own pocket, but now it’s becoming an industry standard. Her passions also include women’s issues and artists’ rights on behalf of which she has written several articles as well as spoken to congress.

A dozen years after the world first turned on to Alanis Morissette, a more mature artist remains committed to her creative path and a strong desire to help others on theirs. “I live to HEAL ruptures and bridge the human and the divine aspects of life, and I hope that by sharing my own experiences, I can support people in their personal journeys, wherever they may be at,” she explains. “Otherwise I’d just sing songs in the shower and take up gardening.”

Third Eye Blind: Third Eye Blind embody the feel good alt-rock music of the '90s. Their hits including "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Never Let You Go", defined late '90s modern rock and catapulted the band to major success.

The San Francisco based alt-rock group was born out of the Bay Area rock scene along with other bands like Green Day. They released their first demo in 1993, however, it was with their second EP that they gained attention from record mogul Clive Davis who invited the band to perform a showcase for Arista in 1995. While they didn't secure a contract, Third Eye Blind managed to score the opening slot for rock supergroup Oasis at their San Francisco Civic Auditorium show in 1996. All of the industry buzz generated a bidding war with Elektra Records ultimately signing the band to a major label deal. Third Eye Blind released their self-titled debut in 1997 and were immediately successful. The lead-off single, "Semi-Charmed Life" was the first of several #1 Modern Rock Tracks from the album and also shot to #4 on the Hot 100.

The self-titled album released hit single after hit single. Third Eye Blind tour dates were added to the opening segment of U2's PopMart Tour and they gained an international following. The album was eventually certified six-times platinum by the RIAA and the singles "How's It Gonna Be" and "Jumper" ensured that the album spent nearly two years on the Billboard 200. They regrouped in 1999 to release their sophomore album Blue. After a slow start, the album gained traction with the second single "Never Let You Go", which became a top ten track. The Third Eye Blind concert schedule included a whirlwind international tour which kept them on the road for a couple of years.

Upon returning, they constructed a recording studio to produce their third album Out of the Vein. The album was released in 2003 and debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 becoming their highest charting album.

In 2007, Third Eye Blind tour dates were booked in commemoration of the ten-year anniversary of their debut album. They performed at San Francisco's famed Filmore venue and cut a live DVD of the event. They released their fourth album Ursa Major on their own label, Mega Collider Records, in 2009 and forged a comeback. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, becoming their highest charting album and their first to reach the top ten.

In 2012, Stephan Jenkins stated that Third Eye Blind's fifth studio album would be their last. Since then, fans have been teased with hints at recording and possible singles, but no new music has been released. While some fans are chomping at the bit for a new album, it just means that they'll have even more opportunities to see Third Eye Blind live!
