“The Mojave Desert reverberates with mysticism. It’s a landscape of boulders seemingly transported from the moon alongside Joshua Trees, their tops angled upward like hands grasping at the heavens. This is where everyone from John Lennon and Keith Richards to Victoria Williams and Gram Parsons have come for inspiration. And early last year, it’s where The Head and the Heart decided to shed old skin before writing their fourth album, Living Mirage, a sweeping, artful expansion of the earthy folk rock that once defined them.” – The Head and the Heart Facebook Biography

 


3. Incubus

Wednesday, October 16

’20 Years of Make Yourself,’ Fox Theatre (Image: Facebook Event)

“Incubus became one of the most popular alt-metal bands of the new millennium, setting themselves apart from a crowded field with a tireless touring ethic and a broad musical palette. Formed in 1991 in the San Fernando Valley suburb of Calabasas, California, the band’s early lineup comprised tenth-grade classmates Brandon Boyd (vocals, percussion), Mike Einziger (guitar), Alex Katunich (aka Dirk Lance; bass), and José Pasillas (drums). Their early funk-metal sound was heavily influenced by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but broadened over the next few years to incorporate thrash, rap-metal, post-grunge rock, and grinding alt-metal à la Korn or the Deftones. By the time the musicians had graduated from high school, they had already been playing all-ages shows around Southern California on a regular basis. In 1995, Incubus added hip-hop turntablist DJ Lyfe (aka Gavin Koppel) to their lineup and recorded the independently released album Fungus Amongus. That, coupled with a strong local following, helped the band earn a deal with the Epic Records subsidiary Immortal.” – AllMusic.com Biography

 


4. WINGTIPS, Glowing Void, DJ Marc Church

“2019 has been a banner year for goth-pop duo WINGTIPS, who recently released their debut record, “EXPOSURE THERAPY”, on Toronto-based Artoffact Records. The duo comprises Chicago-goth mainstays Vincent Segretario and Hannah Avalon, producing unforgettable music that has already captured the attention of media and festival taste-makers alike. WINGTIPS was officially formed in 2014 by Segretario after having informally used the moniker for a number of previous experimental solo performances. The new record, which finds its guitar work inherently in the vain of Disintegration-era Cure, while injecting electronic elements you might hear at home on records by OMD, is an androgynous sound of transition. Interpolating darkly shimmering layers of angular guitar and pulsating darkwave, WINGTIPS sharpens their anthemic rush with an increasing penchant for melody and an atmosphere equally informed by post-punk as sweeping electronica. “EXPOSURE THERAPY” is a contextualization of new romantic for post-millennial end times, and a refreshing mix of synthpop, darkwave, and goth with hooks so compelling they are cinematic in scope.” – Facebook Event
