Before Radiohead's producer Nigel Godirch gets into full out Atoms For Peace mode with Thom Yorke and company for their record Amok, he'll head out on tour with his side-project band, Ultraista. The project features Godrich with singer Laura Bettinson and Beck drummer Joey Waronker. On first listen, their tunes are very remniscent of Yorke's solo album, The Eraser, which isn't a big surprise since Godrich had a hand in that record as well. Don't worry, it's not a bad thing at all.
Hometown hero Diplo played Soundgarden Hall on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013 as part of Trap Hawk Down, a four cities in one day tour. Starting in Baltimore at 6pm, next to Philly, Atlantic City, and ending up in NYC at 3:30am, this wild tour brought to fans an equally wild experience. Supported on the bill by BHB, Ethan Dubb, Schmohawk, Love City DJs, and Aaron Ruxin, this tour pushed the limit.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 25 for pop star/Bold-Face Name Rihanna's April 26 performance at Revel's Ovation Hall.
Admission for this stop on her Diamonds World Tour are TBA. They will be available by calling 800-736-1420, or at www.ticketmaster.com
