Sugarland singer solo, Imagine Dragons get "Radioactive," plus Experience Hendrix
Monday, March 10, 2014
Sugarland singer solo: As one half of Sugarland, Jennifer Nettles scored a Grammy Award, ACM Award and CMA Award, while regularly ruling country and pop radio with smash singles like "Stay" and "Stuck Like Glue." Though there are touches of the group in her brand new solo career, the recently released "That Girl" features production from Rick Rubin for an even wider exploration of country, '70s influences, gospel and straight up singer/songwriter material. Wednesday, March 12 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
Imagine Dragons get "Radioactive": By far the biggest breakout band of the last year, Imagine Dragons instantly shot from the club scene into sold out arenas from coast to coast. Radio dominators like "Demons," "It's Time" and "Radioactive" off the platinum plus "Night Visions" fall smack dab in the center of alternative pop and indie rock, while the Las Vegas-based band always abounds with melodic hooks and contagious choruses. Thursday, March 13 at Allstate Arena: www.livenation.com.
Experience Hendrix all-stars: They'll never be another Jimi Hendrix, but there sure are a lot of appreciators out there that periodically band together to pay tribute to the late guitar god. Experience Hendrix stars original Jimi Hendrix Experience/Band of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox, alongside an all-star cast of prodigious players including Buddy Guy, Zakk Wylde, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Johnson, Cesar Rosas, David Hidalgo, Chris Layton and Eric Gales. Friday, March 14 at Chicago Theatre: www.thechicagotheatre.com.
