Straight from Mobile, Alabama, The Band Perry, made up of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, will bring their slice of homegrown Americana to The Gothic Theatre on Thursday. Their feel good country music is infectious to those fans of classic American rock. However this group also seems more modern with a fuller sound of great vocals and sing-a-long anthems.

Winter On The Rocks is finally here, so get your longjohns ready for a cold night that will undoubtedly be heated up by genre-breakers Big Grams and dubstep pioneers Adventure Club. Combining indie group Phantogram with Outkast’s Big Boi, Big Grams seemed to come out of nowhere in 2105 with their self-titled debut album. This will be a perfect opener for high-energy duo Adventure Club, who will attempt to keep the crowd warm with non-stop dancing at Red Rocks this Friday.

Talib Kweli @ Ogden Theatre

If you still haven’t gotten enough great music for your week, head on over The Ogden Sunday night, who will be hosting Brooklyn legend Talib Kweli. Talib will also be bringing along some of hip-hops favorites from over the years, with Pharoahe Monch, 9th Wonder and Rabsody. In terms of hip-hop history, this night cannot be overstated as one of the last times you may get to see an act from the golden age of hip-hop.
