Panic! at the Disco: If the exclamation point in the band's name doesn't excite you, then we can assure you their eclectic rock sounds will. From heavy synth lines to cues taken from vaudeville hits, there is a reason these Las Vegas boys declared themselves "Too Weird To Live, Too Rare to Die."
Bootsy Collins - There's much more to Bootsy Collins than his great hats and star-shaped sunglasses: his 45 year long music career has included performing with James Brown and Parliament Funkadellic, as well as being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. No disrespect to his hats, of course, it's just hard to top that.
Elvis Costello and the Imposters - He's been described as "a musical encyclopedia" and with good reason. His early career influenced British punk and new-wave, he sits on The Jazz Foundation of America and has collaborated with more rock and pop stars than we have the bandwith to name. This guy helped shape the music you listen to now, go see how.
Luscious Jackson: While they're mostly known for a fantastic mid-90's ear worm "Naked Eye," don't you dare write these ladies off as one-hit wonders. Last year they kicked off a comeback, releasing their first album of new material in this millennium and may be the best result of 90's nostalgia to date.
Reverend Horton Heat: If you think you see an upright bass on stage during this set, I promise that you are not hallucinating. This punkabilly trio, who sometimes dip into rockabilly and psychobilly, mix genres like a good bartender mixes drinks. Don't know what any of those words mean? Let the good Reverend share the gospel with you.
Bobby Womack: It's a collaboration with Mos Def and The Gorillaz that brought him back into the spotlight recently, but Bobby Womack's powerful, soulful voice has been making hits for decades. His "If You Think You're Lonely Now" can go head to head with any modern break-up song and more than hold its own.
J. Cole: When you're hand-picked by Jay-Z to be the first artist signed to his Roc Nation label, you'd better be good enough to warrant it. But J. Cole was never one to back down from a challenge, and it's paid off in the form of two #1 albums, two certified platinum singles and one hell of a determination to get the audience moving.
Bad Things: Shaun White has a band. Yes, that Shaun White, the multi-time X-Games and Olympic gold medalist with the bright red hair. He has a band. And despite their name, we're gonna hope this is actually a good thing.
