Since 1992 with the release of ‘Creep’ Radiohead has seeped into all of our speakers with their experimental indie rock vibrations. As they have grown and progressed, their music has taken influences in other forms, using the computer to generate a different type of sound. With the release of OK Computer, you began to hear a change in their sound, incorporating electronic synthesizers and experimenting with new ambient noises. Preceding that album, they became an international sensation, achieving an abundance of commercial success. Now, with their eighth studio album out, King of Limbs, they are still going strong and creating new, enthralling music with each and every track they make. Their music will break into your mind, intoxicating you with a hyper-frenzy of passionate sound.
They play at the Susquehanna Bank Center tonight at 7:30 PM, tickets are $52.25, all ages
The sweet, somber sounds Marissa Nadler makes with her acoustic guitar combined with her infectious voice create a hazy dream. Her music resonates feelings of mystification and intrigue, with influences such as Patti Smith and Leonard Cohen. She has released six full-length albums since 2004, most recently, The Sister that was released on May 29th. The haunting, heavy hearted, and peaceful album is a piece of work so beautiful it echoes right into your soul. It was recorded in Philly at Miner Street recording with Brian McTear. One of the opening bands is Faces On Film, a Boston group that recently recorded a session for Shaking Through, curated by Nadler.
Marissa Nadler with Faces On Film and Edison opening perform Johnny Brenda’s tonight at 9:15, tickets are $10-12, 21+
