November 2024

Vampire Weekend at Ting Pavilion

Vampire Weekend

Breaking out with their timeless track 'A-Punk', the delectable indie four pieces are back out on tour in 2024, bringing with them the witty and honest songs, sartorial elegance and accessible style that makes them continually popular. Catch them on the road this year as they present their fifth album, 'Only God Was Above Us'.

Heart at John Paul Jones Arena

Heart

Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed that women can rock the world when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the '70s with hits like "Crazy on You," "Magic Man," "Barracuda," "Straight On," and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock history to do so.

Little Feat at Paramount Theater Of Charlottesville

Little Feat

Formed in 1969, Little Feat is one of the great survivors of American rock music. Having gone through numerous lineup changes and breakups, the band are still playing their unmistakable brand of murky blues, country, and funk. Founding member Bill Payne, who is also a prolific session player, and has played with the likes of Pink Floyd and The Doobie Brothers, is still going strong, touring extensively year on year!

Ray LaMontagne at Ting Pavilion

Ray LaMontagne

Ray LaMontagne joins forces with Grammy-nominated Gregory Alan Isakov on a brand new co-headlining tour, with The Secret Sisters as support! 'Trouble', Ray LaMontagne's acclaimed 2004 debut, quietly sold over 250,000 copies, the grassroots result of listeners worldwide hearing the New Hampshire-born singer and songwriter and spreading the word. Heading on tour this fall, don't miss your chance to see them both live!

Atmosphere at Jefferson Theater

Atmosphere

Fearlessly merging indie rock and hip hop, genre-bending Minneapolis duo Atmosphere was formed fresh out of high school by rapper Sean Daley AKA Slug and DJ/producer Anthony Davis AKA Ant. Honing their craft throughout the 90s, the duo became a regular in the city's underground hip hop scene before breaking into the mainstream in 1997 with the release of their debut album 'Overcast!'. Over two decades later, Slug and Ant continue to maintain a cult-like following of fans with a dynamic work ethic, prolific creative output and relentless tour schedule.

Neko Case at Jefferson Theater

Neko Case

Alternative country singer/songwriter Neko Case has spent the last 20 years winning over a cult audience for her smoky, sophisticated vocals and the downcast beauty of her music. With a Gothic melancholy, the Grammy nominee encapsulates an alt- country mood, a genre known as darkly as 'Country Noir, with a voice that spins narratives unafraid of confrontation and sharing her fury.
