More Info

Broken Social Scene: Broken Social Scene is a Canadian indie rock supergroup formed in 1999 in Toronto, Canada.

The band's core members are Kevin Drew and Brendan Canning. This duo recorded and released the band's post rock debut album, Feel Good Lost, in 2001, with contributions by Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin and Bill Priddle. However, when they played shows to support the album, Drew and Canning found it difficult to put together an entertaining show based on Feel Good Lost, which was an almost entirely instrumental album.

As a result, they brought in a number of friends from the Toronto indie scene : Andrew Whiteman, Jason Collett, Metric's Emily Haines and Leslie Feist to flesh out their live show with lyrics and vocals. Over time, the band also came to include contributions from James Shaw, Evan Cranley, Justin Peroff, John Crossingham and Stars's Amy Millan.

All of the later guest musicians joined with Drew, Canning, Peroff and Spearin to record the band's second album, You Forgot It in People, in 2002 on the label Arts & Crafts. This album, an eclectic, restlessly creative collection of experimental yet accessible pop songs, became the band's critical and commercial breakthrough. It was greeted with ecstatic reviews, and landed on many music critics' year-end Best-Of lists. More notably it won the Alternative Album of the Year Juno Award in 2003.

The album also included musical contributions by Priddle, Jessica Moss, Brodie West, Susannah Brady and Ohad Benchetrit, but these were credited as supporting musicians rather than band members. On the supporting tour, the band consisted of Drew, Canning, Peroff, Whiteman and Jason Collett, along with whoever else was available to attend any individual show. Amy Millan and Gentleman Reg also joined for some shows.

In 2003, the B-sides and remix collection Bee Hives was released.

Broken Social Scene released their third full-length, self-titled album on October 4, 2005, with new contributors including K-os, Jason Tait and Murray Lightburn. The inside booklet accompanying album also noted several new faces as part of Broken Social Scene. A limited edition EP : "E.P. To Be You And Me" was also printed along with the album. For the first time David Newfeld, who has produced Broken Social Scene's albums, is listed as a band member.

Dawes: Up-and-comers Dawes are taking mainstream music by storm with folk rock that has a bit of a modern, LA edge to it. With only two albums out, Dawes is receiving recognition from the music industry for their acclaimed tour dates with legends like Alison Krauss, Robbie Robertson, and Jackson Browne. It is this live quality that the band has once again captured on their latest album, Nothing Is Wrong, and can also be heard on Dawes' co-headlining tour dates in 2011.

The band was created out of a previous post-punk band called Simon Dawes after their co-songwriter quit. The group then decided to shift their sound towards folk rock, inspired by Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith's grandfather (fiddler Dawes Lafayette Goldsmith) and their father (Sweathog and Tower of Power alum Lenny Goldsmith). Living in Laurel Canyon, outside of Los Angeles, Dawes played jam sessions with the likes of Conor Oberst, Chris Robinson, and Jenny Lewis which, when combined with popular tour dates in LA clubs, led to a record contract. Their debut album, North Hills, was recorded in live in a Laurel Canyon home and gave their classic / folk rock style an authentic sound that critics and audiences applauded.

Dawes' latest album, Nothing Is Wrong, features songs that were born on stage, once again giving their music a quality that is often compared to that of Crosby, Stills, and Nash and Bruce Springsteen. Fans can discover the band's hit sound for themselves on Dawes' upcoming 2011 tour dates in the US. After supporting Alison Krauss and Union Station in August and September, Dawes will co-headline a tour with Blitzen Trapper (with special guests Belle Brigade and Smoke Fairies) throughout October and November. Dawes's tour dates in 2011 end on November 15, so be sure to buy your tickets on Eventful today.

The best songs will always define certain time periods. You'll hear the melodies and instantly be transported back to the moment when you first experienced them. You'll see the same sights and feel the same feelings as a result. In other words, you'll get that same sonic bliss.

Live's catalog is filled with songs like those. Among those seminal tunes are mega hits such as "Lightning Crashes", "I Alone", "All Over You", and "Lakini's Juice"—which remained pillars of the nineties both musically and culturally. Who can forget seeing the music video for "Lighting Crashes" on MTV for the first time—or fiftieth for that matter? We've all sung along to "I Alone" at some point too. That's just a fact.

Meanwhile, "The Dolphin's Cry" and "Overcome" ushered the group into the 21st century triumphantly. Given anthems such as those, it's not surprising the outfit sold over 22 million albums worldwide and have become a veritable concert juggernaut. However, Live's got a whole new crop of songs on the horizon for 2013 that carry the same poetry, power, and passion.

The York, Pennsylvania legends burst on to the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991 with their major label debut, Mental Jewelry. The band—lead guitarist Chad Taylor, bassist Patrick Dahlheimer, drummer Chad Gracey, and founding vocalist Ed Kowalczyk—infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack. Live's sophomore set, Throwing Copper, solidified their status as bona fide superstars though. After fifty-two weeks it reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album "One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time", while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise.

Upon release, its 1997 follow-up Secret Samadhi immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on The Distance to Here in 1999, Live turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash "The Dolphin's Cry". V and Birds of Pray followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate the rabid and faithful fan base that they had amassed over nearly two decades. In 2008, the band initiated a hiatus, and Taylor, Gracey, and Dahlheimer founded The Gracious Few alongside Candlebox's Kevin Martin and Sean Hennesy. The project's self-titled debut would go on to enjoy critical acclaim as they became a live draw in their own right. However, Live's influence never dwindled in either the fan's lives or the founding band mates. 2012 saw them reborn. Taylor, Gracey, and Dahlheimer approached longtime friend Chris Shinn [Unified Theory] about potentially joining the group. After one practice session, the musicians had tapped into the same magic that characterized their early days. The creative process had been galvanized and rebooted, and Live re-entered the studio with Shinn behind the mic.

Once again, they evolve on the new material. Self-producing and engineering, they intend to also enlist the help of original Live producer Jerry Harrison [The Talking Heads] and Mike Clink [Guns N' Roses]. In the studio, the quartet has re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks. The next era of Live has just begun, and there will undoubtedly be many more songs to sing along to.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Thomas Earl Petty (born October 20, 1950) is a popular American musician, known for his album-oriented, classicist rock'n'roll. He has also produced numerous hit singles, such as "American Girl", "Free Fallin'", "Into the Great Wide Open" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance", most of which remain heavily played on mainstream radio. Despite this success, Petty is also a vocal critic of the modern recording industry and the disintegration of independent radio stations (i.e. The Last DJ).

Petty has been supported by his band, The Heartbreakers, for the majority of his career. He has occasionally released solo work, as is the case with his most recent effort, 2006's Highway Companion, on which he performed most of the backing instrumentation himself. However, it should be noted that members of The Heartbreakers have played on each of his solo albums and the band has always backed him when touring in support of those albums.
