You may not immediately recognize his name, but if you're someone who watches just about any show on primetime TV you've probably heard Joshua Radin's music before. The acoustic folk-pop singer-songwriter has had 75 placements in film and television. Currently, the singer is touring behind his most recent album, The Rock and The Tide, which has a lovely, feel-good vibe we're digging and bet you will, too. Check out "You Got What I Need" it's likely exactly what you need. 8pm Crystal Ballroom.
Disturbed, Korn, Sevendust, In This Moment
If you're a hard rock and metal fan, this may be a dream lineup. If you're not a fan, this lineup may be downright disturbing. For those of you who would rather head bang than dance, let down your hair and get ready to rock... if that's your idea of a good time. 7pm, Memorial Coliseum.
When someone brings up new wave music in conversation, a few thoughts immediately race into consciousness - keytars, skinny ties and, of course, Devo. Devo pioneered the new wave revolution in the '70s and '80s with colossal help from their insanely popular single, "Whip It." Vocalist Mark Mothersbaugh found success outside of Devo writing musical scores for film and television and his impressive resume includes a Source favorite, The Royal Tenebaums (and most other Wes Anderson films). 8pm, Crystal Ballroom.
