An all-female, folk-indie crossover band from Northampton, MA, And The Kids is taking the world by storm on their tour of the United States and making a pitstop at our very own Schubas Tavern with Toth early this month. Featuring a unique blend of electric sounds, haunting melodies, and soul-soothing lyrics, this unstoppable trio is guaranteed to win your heart. It’s easy to fall in love with And The Kids, for their style, spunk, and silliness, if not only for their music. By the time this show debuts, you’ll be screaming lyrics out the open sunroof as you race along LSD toward Lakeview, so don’t miss the opportunity to get tickets to their $10 concert!

Hailing from Hartford, CT, this musical bromance was born all the way back in the early 2000s, when they released Old Time Speaker. Since then, they’ve released four more uplifting and energizing albums, along with a few EPs and single releases, that have really sculpted their modern, indie sound. Standout EP Check Two, released just this year, takes on a soulful, foot-tapping melody that remains independent of other releases and truly establishes them as the profound, roots-rock band that they are. This heartthrob quintet is playing with Wildermiss at Lincoln Hall this month for just $17, so don’t forget to snatch up tickets before they’re all sold out.

Unapologetically led by Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine has made leaps and bounds in the music industry since the release of their first album in 2014. Mingling quirky, electronic undertones with funky Afro-beats, this West African-inspired group takes on a groovy, modern form of disco in both style and sound, and they’re bringing their idiosyncratic music to Lincoln Hall later this March. While their opener has yet to be announced, it’s clear Ibibio Sound Machine will steal the show regardless. Try your hand at winning tickets to this show, or just pay the $18 entry fee!

Beta Radio is for the wanderers of the world, those who take a road trip on a whim without thought for the consequences, and who travel so often they may have forgotten where home is. As long as you have a Beta Radio album in the stereo system, you’re golden, and as the journey spreads before you, Beta Radio will both inspire your adventures and make you homesick to your core. Take it up a notch and head to Schubas Tavern later this month to see them in concert. Their $12 show with Whitacre is going to move your very soul, so it might be a good idea to bring a lighter and a box of tissues for those overly emotional, musical moments. Get tickets today!
