March 8, 2015
Taking Back Sunday at The Rave

Taking Back Sunday is a band that truly needs no introduction. Since forming in 1999, they have sold millions of albums, evolved from a young punk act into seasoned songwriters and continued to forge a successful career. That spirit of resilience and innovation is dripping all over the band's sixth full-length "Happiness Is." As you can guess from the title, the album addresses some heady concepts, but it simultaneously showcases a new musical and conceptual leap for this collection of musicians with varied influences that is certain to endear them to fans both new and old. Don't miss Taking Back Sunday's eighth appearance at The Rave! - See more at:

Broods at The Rave

Broods is a brother-sister electronic pop duo that hails from Auckland, New Zealand. Their name is apt, as their music often mines a rich seam of understated, melancholy electro-pop. They are touring in support of their new full-length record, Evergreen and their latest single, Mother & Father. - See more at:

Did anyone else check out Wilco at The Rave last night? It was one of the best shows I have seen all year. They sounded great and the crowd was really into it. Kudos boys!
