Alternative pop/rock band Third Eye Blind, led by frontman Stephan Jenkins, hit the scene in the late '90s with a catchy and melodic post-grunge sound that gave them a hit with 'Semi-Charmed Life,' followed up by the charting hits 'How's It Going to Be,' 'Jumper,' 'Deep Inside of You' and more. They've sold over 10 million albums worldwide and are back on the scene after a bit of a hiatus.

Since 1984 Primus has been pushing the boundaries of punk/rock/metal music just as artists like Frank Zappa and Pink Floyd did before them. In 2011 they released "Green Naugahyde" which was their first in 11 years. Currently composed of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander, Primus and the Chocolate Factory will hit the road with a two-set "evening with" show in support of their new record, due in October. A tribute to the 1971 movie "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory", the new album will be the band's eighth studio record and, the first from the band's classic line-up since 1995.
