Shrek Rave at Jefferson Theater

Shrek Rave

But he might not be the sharpest tool in the shed, so you know what to say when he asks what you're doing in his swamp. Fancy some swampy green cocktails while livin' la vida loca? You're in the right place for that, and like they say, it's dumb just come have fun, cool is dead. Awesome DJs will play the most swamp-worthy sets in between performances to keep your rave spirit alive. Make the most of the night and dress up as your favorite character, just don't skimp out on the gumdrop buttons or the classic Farquaad hair. And the morning after? Make sure you have some waffles!

Robert Earl Keen at Paramount Theater Of Charlottesville

Robert Earl Keen

Keen's 1993 release, A Bigger Piece Of Sky, gained wide acclaim, both amongst fans and critics. Over the next two decades, Keen would continue to write, record, perform and tour. Today, Keen is popular with traditional country music fans, folk music fans, the college radio crowd and alt-country fans.

Ben Folds at Ting Pavilion

Ben Folds

The frontman of his self-named band, rock artist and producer Ben Folds continues to work with some of the most eclectic names in music and entertainment (remember his Common People cover that featured William Shatner and Bill Clinton?), as well as pushing the envelope on alt-rock ever further. A self-confessed enigma, he prefers to stay out of the limelight except when touring, but can easily claim credit for some of music's most unlikely trends.

Brett Dennen at Jefferson Theater

Brett Dennen

Californian folk sophomore Brett Dennen is back on the road! A self-taught singer and musician from an early age, Dennen's creative upbringing at home allowed him to compose his own music during his teens, and then to inspire others at summer camp. His 2004 self-titled debut album was well-received when a burned copy found its way to Apple executive Denzyl Feigelson, leading to a record contract with Dualtone Records.

Waxahatchee at Ting Pavilion

Waxahatchee

Indie-rock project Waxahatchee, created by Katie Crutchfield, is back and ready to embark on a brand new tour in support of her upcoming album. The album, titled 'Tigers Blood,' is set to be released at the end of March this year and will be the first Waxahatchee album since the 2020 release of 'Saint Cloud.' This trek will see her make stops across the country, including New York, Austin, Atlanta, Detroit, and many more!

Gogol Bordello at Jefferson Theater

Gogol Bordello

It's hard to believe that Gogol Bordello have been in our lives for nearly two decades. The multicultural outfit are known for their high-intensity, electrically-charged shows that twist and turn through genres at break-neck speed, all the while inducing smiles and palpable euphoria in the crowd. Don't miss them as they head on their brand-new tour this year!

The Mountain Goats at Jefferson Theater

The Mountain Goats

Despite his pluralized moniker, John Darnielle remains the sole driving force of Californian indie pop-rock outfit The Mountain Goats. With an ever-evolving roster of live and recording musicians surrounding him, Darnielle revels in his goth-tinged melancholy, fusing a winning combination of wry insight and black humor in his lyrics (which earned him the accolade of 'America's best non-hip-hop artist' by the New Yorker) with lingering melodic hooks and satisfying songcraft. This year, Darnielle brings his spell-binding songwriting to venues across America once more.
