Mayaeni - Every Thursday in June at the Garden Bowl - No Cover

Mayaeni (mah-yay-knee), rock and soul singer from Detroit, Michigan.

Raised in a suburb just outside Detroit that she describes as racially pretty segregated at that time, Mayaeni, pronounced mah-yay-knee, was actually born to rock.

Hanging out with her musician dad in the studio was Mayaeni’s form of grooming, with Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan and Hendrix records serving both as musical surrogates and soundtracks to her life.

The instrumentally rich and electric songs she creates now are extensions of her rocker past. Her earliest material was recorded on her dad’s 8-track tapes.

Seeking independence at age 17, Mayaeni headed to London, where she made money under the tables selling clothes at Camden Markets.

The cost-of-living struggle persisted when Mayaeni moved to New York, but those survival years turned out to be perfect preparation.

In New York, Mayaeni worked the open mic circuit, up to five times a week, hopping in and out of places like Village Underground, The Grove and Café Wha.

The music is as edgy and raw as it is emotional, like the sounds of a guitar crying out, whether it’s the yearning in the mid-tempo anthem 'Million N1' or the angst in the clamorous rock-out garage jam 'Too Late.' It's the sound of progress.

American Football / William Tyler

A record comes to represent and trigger a specific era in the listener, an unchanging document
against which people can measure their own evolution and feel returned to not only their own
season with this record, but also the imagined landscape and lives of the artists.

That American Football’s first record continued to resonate with an ever­expanding coalition of
new listeners long after their brief existence is proof of the skillfulness and subtlety with which
they could express themselves as undergrads. And that mysterious aura is a lot to live up to.
People have had almost twenty years to live alongside that album. And now, in a flash, their
body of work doubles. WSG: William Tyler

AEG Presents: FOXYGEN w/ Cut Worms

Foxygen and Star Power is the Los Angeles songwriting duo of 24-year-olds Sam France and Jonathan Rado. In May 2011, France and Rado nervously handed off a CD-R of this homemade mini-opus Take the Kids Off Broadway (Jagjaguwar, 2012) to producer and visionary Richard Swift after his performance in a Lower East Side club. The duo, who had just mixed and burned the disc that very night, had been devotees of Swift’s outsider-pop oeuvre since high school, when they first began recording their own pubescent forays into oddball rock n’ roll (At least a dozen records were finished before they graduated high school).

AEG Presents: Banks

A singer and songwriter who crafts moody, downcast alternative pop with shades of contemporary R&B, Jillian Banks started writing as a teenager in her native Tarzana, California after a friend gave her a keyboard. For years, she wrote and played as a personal release, but she uploaded "Before I Ever Met You" -- a sleek, low-key track that sounded like the work of someone who had grown up listening to Fiona Apple and Massive Attack -- in early 2013. Within a matter of months, the Los Angeles native was releasing singles for Good Years (in the U.K.) and the reactivated Harvest (in the U.S.), including "Warm Water" (produced by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) and "Fall Over." That September, she released a four-track EP, London, as she was opening for the Weeknd during a North American tour. Her full-length debut, Goddess, which featured collaborations with producers Justin Parker and Shlohmo and additional work with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, arrived in September 2014 and debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200 chart. Harvest issued a large collection of remixes as a digital download in 2015. The following year saw the release of her much anticipated sophomore full-length, The Altar, which featured the singles "Fuck with Myself," "Gemini Feed," and "Mind Games." ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

MEW - VISUALS North America 2017 Tour wsg Monakr

Mew frontman Jonas Bjerre has worked on the projections for the band’s live shows since their early days. Usually, the Danish trio finish an album and Bjerre gets to work on the visuals. For their seventh record, though, the singer decided to turn things upside down, picturing visuals in his mind first and seeing how they could inform the music. The resultant record feels like a culmination for one of rock’s most ambitious and inventive groups: Visuals is where Bjerre and his bandmates, bassist Johan Wohlert and drummer Silas UtkeGraaeJørgensen, join the dots of a career that has spanned over two decades.

AEG Presents: Michelle Branch w/ HAERTS

One day in 2012, Michelle Branch wrote a song called “City” that would turn out to be eerily prescient. “I was nearing my 30th birthday and I thought, ‘Something needs to change in my life,’ she says. “I felt stagnant in this weird holding pattern,but I never acknowledged it to myself until I wrote that song.A lot of huge things happened to me really young. I got signed at 17 and released my first album a month after I turned 18. I met my ex-husband when I was 19, got married at 20, and had a baby at 21. ‘City’ was a song about me realizing that I wanted to make a change.It was one of the first things I wrote that felt really honest and it was kind of an ‘A-ha’ moment for me. Once I sang it, I thought, ‘Oh, here we go.’”

 “City” is now the closing track on Branch’s upcoming new album Hopeless Romantic, and Branch’s world has completely changed since she wrote it. The Sedona, Arizona-born singer, songwriter, and musician went through a divorce, changed record labels, moved from Los Angeles to Nashville, fell in love, and, in the process, made the album of her dreams with her producer and now partner, Patrick Carney of The Black Keys.
