ABOUT THE BANDS:

EOTO
“With no two shows alike, fans have come to expect the unexpected. Changes in mood, energy, and inspiration are reflected—in real-time—by rhythmic and melodic shifts in the music as EOTO makes their way through a plethora of tools and techniques. The duo moves effortlessly from choppy dubstep to whip-smart, four-on-the-floor house to psychedelic trip-hop. It’s a dance marathon, but everyone’s in it together.

MATERIALIZED
Materialized is an ongoing musical collaboration built on the core of a lifelong friendship between Grammy Award winning keyboardist (Mighty) Dave Pellicciaro and drummer Dale Fanning.
Based in Oakland, CA the band builds their energized sound on big beats and sonic scapes. To keep the music constantly growing they engage a revolving cast of talent for their live shows ranging from a powerhouse two-man match to trios, full band with a horn section, singers, video and dancers including their main associate, Cuban-born bassist Carlitos Del Puerto (Bruce Springsteen, Herbie Hancock).
Materialized has released their EP CD “Songs About Music” and are dropping three fresh singles on Feb 1st. Check these high octane adventures on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify and Pandora.

Love In The Circus
Love in the Circus features unique and seductive melodies that combine and blur the lines of electronica, rock, jazz and blues with sultry, edgy, museful hooks.
The group was formed by singer/bassist Leanna Rachel and producer/guitarist Chris Brickler. Curtis Cunningham joined the group on drums, Eric Hargett on keys/saxophone and Cha Chi on percussion/synths. The High Priestess and Leah Zeger add beautiful textures on the harp and violin, respectively.

Madonna will tour the United States in 2012.

In anticipation of the March 26th, 2012 release of MDNA, Madonna has announced she will (drumroll please!) … wait 8 months to go on a North American tour.

Yep, the good news is Madonna is touring, but not until the very end of August 2012. After her electrifying performance at the Super Bowl – which was somewhat upstaged by a stray middle finger – she’ll continue the sports theme, playing the stadiums of the Lakers, Yankees, and Celtics. Twenty bucks says she wears the hometown logo in all three towns.

It may seem like distant future, but don’t dally: tickets go on sale Monday, February 13th, 2012 at 10am PST, and you’d be foolish to think they’re going to last.

Madonna 2012 tour dates:

8/28 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center

The Shins teased some 2012 tour dates on the heels of locking up a featured spot at Coachella 2012, and now the momentum keeps rolling. They’ve tacked on dates in May and June, and they’ll get as far as Ohio in a Midwestern stint. East Coast: no love for you guys yet, but these arena tours tend to roll out slowly so you may catch some good news regarding summer Shins concerts in the coming weeks.

The Shins also debuted “September,” a B-side to “Simple Song” with a typographic video which superimposes lyrics and drawings onto a spinning record. Watch the video and check out The Shins’ tour dates below.

Jack White Tour 2012

After releasing the first single “Love Interruption” earlier this week from his upcoming album, Blunderbuss, Jack White has now confirmed his first three tour dates for 2012. First, he will appear at Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shore, AL on May 18th, followed by Sasquatch Festival in George, WA on May 26th, and then at Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend in London on June 22nd-23rd.

Since stepping back from the spotlight with the Dead Weather, we wonder if White will want to endure a long grinding tour as the front piece. What do you think?

And if you haven’t yet heard, you can preview some of White’s new material – listen to “Love Interruption” from Blunderbuss below:
