CHRIS CORNELL

STG presents Chris Cornell on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at The Moore Theatre in Seattle.

Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions. An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy award winning musician and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter and lyricist.

DENGUE FEVER

STG presents Dengue Fever at The Crocodile in Seattle on Sunday, April 24, 2011.

TICKETS ARE $13 IN ADVANCE, $15 DOS

Dengue Fever's psychedelic take on the Cambodian pop sounds of the 60s makes them one of rock'n'roll's most unique success stories. They draw enthusiastic crowds from LA to the UK , from Maui to Moscow , and leave critics rummaging through their thesauruses looking for new superlatives to describe their sound. Their appearance at this year's WOMEX, the world's largest international music conference, cements their position as a global phenomenon.

Venus On Earth, Dengue's new album shows the band's careful attention to the craft of songwriting. With 11 strong tunes and Chhom Nimol's vocals more confident than ever, the band takes another giant step forward; creating music that retains its Cambodian roots while forging its own unique psychedelic sound.

 

The Head & The Heart

STG presents The Head & The Heart at Showbox at the Market in Seattle on Friday, April 29, 2011 and at The Moore Theatre in Seattle on Saturday, April 30, 2011.

So many decisions in life and in the music we love can come down to a critical tug between the logic in our heads and the hot red blood beating through our hearts. Seattle’s The Head and the Heart live authentically in that crux, finding joy and beauty wedged there. Their music pulses effervescently—both explosively danceable and intuitively intelligent.

The strength of Josiah, Jon and Charity's vocal harmonies on the album makes it feel like these three were born to pour their voices together, as the band's songs revel in jaunty bass lines with ebullient handclaps peppering the best moments.This is an album for people who unabashedly sing and drum along on the steering wheel, and also for those who appreciate a well-crafted collection of songs that build into something wholly beautiful.

EL TEN ELEVEN

STG Presents El Ten Eleven at Chop Suey on Friday April 15, 2011.

El Ten Eleven is a Los Angeles-based instrumental indie rock duo consisting of Kristian Dunn and Tim Fogarty. They officially formed in 2003, but Dunn and Fogarty have been working together musically for years in bands such as The Softlightes (first American band signed to Australia’s Modular label) and The Incredible Moses Leroy.

To date, the group has only performed shows within the United States and Canada, but their music has been heard loud and clear across the globe.This is a duo of road-warriors who have built up their fan-base the old fashioned way: by getting out on the road and touring their asses off. They have looped around America more times than they can remember and at each show, new members of the El Ten Eleven faithful are conceived.

DEFTONES

As kids, the Sacramento fivesome cut its teeth on Anthrax and The Smiths, Pantera and The Cure, skateboarding and “The Smurfs.” As a band out of high school, Deftones mixed trip hop with thrash, melodic vocals with crushing reverb, and yes, pretty with ugly. As chart-toppers and headliners, they’ve crossed over genres, defied categorization and confused the hell out of your iPod (“Heavy Metal?” “Hard Rock?” “Alternative?”) Above all, Deftones have stuck together throughout their often-turbulent tenure, and now, deliver one of the most compelling records of their career.

The 11-track album is just that—an album from start to finish. Diamond Eyes works the way good records used to; each song carries you a little further away from your shitty day until finally, you’ve been transported to a place that feels a whole lot better than where you started
