Nick Lowe has confirmed his first headlining US tour since the release of his critically acclaimed new album 'The Old Magic' (Yep Roc). He will be backed on all dates by his longtime band of Geraint Watkins (keyboards), Robert Trehern (drums), Johnny Scott (guitar), and Matt Radford (bass).
The tour follows Lowe's extensive run of US dates with Wilco in Fall 2011, that had the Seattle Weekly raving "If there is such a thing as a perfect show, Nick Lowe brought it."
'The Old Magic' has earned similar praise with the New York Times hailing Lowe's "remarkable second wind," and GQ observing "he's evolved so gracefully, into a cool, croony, moody hybrid: Johnny Cash meets Paul Smith meets Graham Greene."

“THEATRE OF ESCAPISTS” TOUR
From the beginning, JANE’S ADDICTION has thrown the most unique parties in rock, mixing a fierce musicality with theatrical flair onstage. 2012 sees the band--who’ve always outrageously combined electricity, sex and danger--return in support of their acclaimed album THE GREAT ESCAPE ARTIST (Capitol Records), which features the track “Underground”, currently climbing the rock radio charts. Recently starting on February 22, this special run of North American shows—called “Theatre of the Escapists”--will bring the band to intimate venues, most of which are classic theatres.
The alternative rock pioneers--frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins, along with Chris Chaney on bass—are poised to deliver an immersive theatrical experience as only they can.
“We chose to play as many of the great theatres that we could find because we wanted to immerse the audience in a unique experience unlike any they have ever seen at a rock show,” says FARRELL. “Expect an orgy of musical and visual delights. We like orgies, and hope you do too.”

PineCone presents Carolina Chocolate Drops
|PineCone presents Carolina Chocolate Drops|
North Carolina’s own Grammy winning Carolina Chocolate Drops kick off PineCone’s Down Home Concerts at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Their latest release, Leaving Eden, has received widespread critical acclaim, and they’ve also penned a tune titled “Daughter’s Lament” for The Hunger Games soundtrack. The current band line-up features founding members Dom Flemons and Rhiannon Giddens with Hubby Jenkins, and New Orleans-based cellist Leyla McCalla also joins them on their latest tour. The Drops formed after founding members Flemons and Giddens met Piedmont fiddler Joe Thompson at the Black Banjo Gathering in Boone, NC in 2005. They traveled to his home once a week to learn from him and jam with him, and they started performing as a tribute to Thompson, a chance to bring his music back out of the house again and into dance halls and public places. Today, their music carries on Thompson’s old-time Piedmont music legacy and proves that the music of the past is as alive and vibrant today as it ever was. Join PineCone for a night celebrating North Carolina Piedmont music!
Tickets will be on sale for PineCone members from May 14-16; tickets will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, May 17. Call the PineCone Box Office 919-664-8302, order through www.ticketmaster.com, or in person at the Progress Energy Center.

PineCone presents The Gathering: A Holiday Concert

http://www.pinecone.org for additional information.
Christmas concerts with roots this deep are rare. The Gathering is as lively and eclectic as any good family gathering, from high-energy hoedowns to heartfelt remembrances of holidays at home. Gorgeous voices and crystalline harmonies backed by an all-star string-band, The Gathering breathes new life into traditional Christmas music and features fresh new songs of the season. The show is centered around The Gathering: A Winter's Tale in Six Songs, an Appalachian song cycle by Dossett; other highlights include Compton singing his former boss John Hartford's "On Christmas Eve," Giddens and Sypher doing "O Holy Night" as a stark and stunning bass and voice duet, and Newberry’s new holiday hymn “On This Christmas Day.”
