Doors 7:00 PM / Show 7:30 PM
Halo Circus are a highly acclaimed Los Angeles based electronic duo featuring star singer Allison Iraheta and producer Matthew Hager. Formerly a four piece rock band, Halo Circus have returned as a compelling synth-pop duo, with a sparkling new album Robots and Wranglers, mixed by Grammy Award winner Craig Bauer (Rihanna, Kanye West). The record is a concept album that sees the duo at the top of their game, seemingly right at home making a stylistic electronic record that feels like it was always there, right in the duo’s creative wheelhouse. Gone are the rock stylings of Bunny, replaced this time around with finely crafted synth-pop gems, clad with sometimes minimal, occasionally lush electronic arrangements. What remains in the fold is Iraheta’s recognizably dark vocals and introspective lyrical approach—hallmarks of the band and the kind of superstar traits that have won over fans nationwide. The album is already being hailed as “a cinematic, electronic work of fiction set in 2018.”
The recent flurry of attention surrounding Halo Circus has resulted in massive opportunities for the group. Allison Iraheta has lended her powerhouse vocals to various notable projects, including appearing on the recent NIN EP “Add Violence,” on the song “Less Than.” In addition, new FOX singing competition The Four—featuring Sean Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor—reached out to Allison to help work on the pilot, citing her as a trailblazing artist that is pushing the boundaries of music and the business of music. More recently, Allison performed at renowned industry giant Clive Davis’ Grammy party, in a duet with superstar Latin crossover artist Luis Fonsi on the track, “Echamela La Culpa.”
With the release of Robots and Wranglers arriving this Spring, Halo Circus’ future is lit with a newfound optimism. More at home as a duo than ever before, Iraheta and Hager have tapped into the reduced essence of their creativity and are ready for their formal arrival. Armed with a new album of inspiring electro-pop tracks, and one of the most supportive fanbases in the country, they will be hitting the road this March on a nationwide tour.
Laurel & the Love-In
Laurel & the Love-In met on Tinder in 2015. Back then, they were loners looking for nothing more than some free meals and a little hanky-panky on the side. What they found was true love-in. Since then the Nashville-based rock and roll band has toured the country, honing their sound, which consists of visceral lyrics, rock and roll guitar solos, and 1960s girl-group
inspired harmonies. The band consists of lead singer and pianist Laurel Sorenson, Emma Holden on guitar, background vocalist Veronica Selby, drummer Michael Rasile, and bassist Max Zikakis.
Nashville-based Laurel & the Love-In are ambassadors for an aspect of Music City that gets overshadowed by C&W: its deep history of rock and blues. Lead singer Laurel Sorenson’s pipes can caress or scald the listener, as required by the band’s unabashedly old-school and rocking songs. - Isthmus Laurel and the Love-In are proving rock and roll is alive and well. Their bluesy and soulful sound is bringing dynamics and exciting lyricism to the Nashville music scene and beyond… The Love In formed and since then they have been revamping modern day rock and roll with their passion filled live show and exciting music. The band very obviously stands in a category all their own in comparison to a lot of the music emerging from Nashville. - Underdog Press
