This Icelandic folk-rock quartet is also inspired by the blues, as evidenced by their hit single, “Way Down We Go.” The band’s show at the Whitewater Center a few months back was canceled, so this will be their Charlotte premiere. Be sure to get their early for the stunning songcrafting of Bishop Briggs. Her album hasn’t been released yet, but the strength of her first singles has gotten her opening slots on the summer’s hottest tours.

Aaron, a newbie to blind dating, meets with Casey, an expert blind dater, for a first date. A simple night of drinks turns into a chaotic dinner when the couple realizes they are not alone. The people in the restaurant turn into best friends, ex's, and even parents in this comical musical about the chances we take to find true love.
The Struts are the latest in a long line of England-based glam-rock bands. The music’s based off of big guitar riffs and the enthusiastic performance of frontman/singer Luke Spiller. The band’s hit single, “Kiss This,” has a familiarity to it that makes it perfect for a sweaty rock club singalong. I’d expect to see them in a bigger room the next time around. $18
