Living Colour broke genre and racial barriers with their debut album, Vivid, in 1988. The funk metal band fused their love of jazz and hip hop with hardcore and punk to create their vibrant sound. Along with their bold sound came brutally honest lyrics ranging from the personal to the political, including commentary on racism in the United States. Now, 40 years later, this band is soldering on and will show how they can still rock out at their sold-out show at Bottom Lounge this Thursday, February 8, at 7:30 PM.

Escuela Grind takes their name literally. Translating to “school” grind, the New England-based band schools listeners with their punishing yet dynamic take on grindcore. On top of this, they use their interest in history and philosophy to create their album concepts. If you want to experience the teachings of this metal band, be sure to catch their show at Reggie’s Rock Club with Take Offense, Brat, and Bonginator on Thursday, February 8 at 7 PM. Grab tickets here.

Andrew 3000 is ready to embark on the next chapter of his career. The former member of Outkast has always marched to a different drumbeat with his wild sense of fashion, unique take on hip-hop, and eclectic approach to music. Andre 3000 continues to create his own path on his acclaimed solo album New Blue Sun, his first in 20 years. The musician will bring the New Blue Sun experience to Thalia Hall for a sold-out show on Monday, February 12, at 7 PM.
