Fans of Athens, Ga., indie-psych collective Elephant 6 should delight in this month's Holiday Surprise variety tour, with 14 U.S. dates featuring a gathering of like-minded musicians playing new material and older goodies from the collective's mid-'90s heyday.
The music world needs a Spiritualized. Jason "J. Spaceman" Pierce's nearly 20-year old group is simply the best band in the world at doing what it does, which in this case is an often dreamy, sometimes dissonant sort of gospel punk rock.
Iconic U.K. rockers Radiohead played the third show of its 2008 U.S. tour Thursday (May 8) just outside of Atlanta, exhibiting confidence and restraint while enthralling a sold-out crowd.
