Swedish House Mafia mayhem, Passion Pit hits big, plus Solange up close
Monday, February 18, 2013
Swedish House Mafia mayhem: Even though this is being billed as "One Last Tour," at least electro house trio Swedish House Mafia is poised to go out with a bang on the heels of its worldwide club smash "Don't You Worry Child." Besides the charismatic delivery of DJs Axwell, Steve Angello, and Sebastian Ingrosso, the group's light, laser, firework and flames display is nothing short of breathtaking.

Passion Pit hits big: Just a few years ago, Passion Pit was sweating it out in the clubs and warming up afternoon festival stages, but the time has finally come for the synth pop/indie rock act to headline arenas. But equally essential on this bill is Matt & Kim, who followed a similar career trajectory blending the best of keyboard-centered power pop and indie rock. Friday, February 22 at UIC Pavilion: www.jamusa.com.
Solange up close: She may not be nearly as famous as her big sis Beyonce, but talent obviously runs in the family for Solange Knowles. The more indie pop/neo-soul styled star just dropped her new wave-inspired "True EP," which marks her first after parting ways with Interscope Records in 2009.
