Live Music This Week: Ariana Grande, Brian Wilson, and More

Tuesday: Ariana Grande at Shoreline Amphitheater

Ariana Grande’s been so busy she couldn’t even make time for the VMA’s, and apparently that's a problem for some people. The universe-famous pop star comes to Shoreline on her "Honeymoon Tour" in support of her 2015 album My Everything. She made time for us so please reciprocate.

This Week in Live Music: TV on the Radio, Cherry Glazzer, & More

Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith, St. Vincent to Headline Outside Lands 2015

Sure, there are some clunkers (Elton John?), some pretentious festival cliches (oh great, Wilco), and at least one ostensible punchline for the GenX set (Billy Idol!), but with names like Kendrick Lamar, St. Vincent, and Toro Y Moi, this year's Outside Lands is a must. 

This Week in Live Music: Toro y Moi, Gang of Four, and More

We’re with you, Mr. Broke-Ass Stuart and Mr. Keeling. Let’s keep the Neverland spirit alive and rock out on a weeknight.
