Are you a diehard Coldplay fan? Does Chris Martin's voice bring you back to sharing an afternoon with your class crush in 9th grade honors English when you were randomly grouped together to grade each other's short essays, which was complicated because you saw they had some serious grammar issues but you didnt want to be thaaaaaat person who would blow a slim chance at teenage romantic human interaction for the sake of academic integrity, but you still wanted to look like you were taking it seriously as not to appear mentally weak so you heavily dilute your criticims to appear reliable and honest, then you never spoke in person again?

I'm no 'scientist', but If you are craving some nostalgia and pure feelings, we can 'fix you' riiiiiight up with this tribute to Coldplay, featuring the illustrious Coldplayed!

Hailing from Northern Estonia, fiddler/singer Maarja Nuut combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics to create a space where minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of prewar Europe. Having received the 2015 Tallinn Music Week Prize and showcased at the 2014 Womex festival, Nuut is now bringing her unique renditions of Baltic folk music to her San Diego debut at ArtPower.

“Estonian fiddler Maarja Nuut takes her country’s folkloric tunes on a stunning personal journey. Her voice’s unusual pitches and repetitive phrasing form gradually shifting soundscapes.”—Chicago Tribune

Via memorable headscarves, premature life crises, and three individual obsessions with making music, MUNA arrived at their self-described “dark pop” of 2016 and a debut EP in ‘Loudspeaker’, which they take full credit for. They write and produce everything themselves simply because they can. Besides containing four catchy slices of MUNA melodic fire, intended to lay the groundwork for a future album, the title is aptly named. It represents the trio’s intention to wield their musical platform and voice their innermost anxieties, truths and impressions of the human race, while having the time of their - and your - lives. Bolstered by their inner gang confidence, they’re fearless when it comes to just being MUNA: individualist, intelligent and sidesplittingly funny. Their listening sessions comprise of everything from Fleetwood Mac and Talking Heads to Massive Attack, LUSH and Cocteau Twins.

Elhae Bio (Hip-Hop/R&B):
Jamaal “ELHAE” Jones knows that nothing lasts forever, so he’s going to dedicate all of his time to become one of the greatest artists of this generation. The singer, rapper, and producer, whose name acrimoniously breaks down to Every Life Has An Ending, adopted his moniker one day while he was writing a song in high school. His first taste of music came when he sang in his school choir, though he was deeply inspired by the rhymes of Kanye West, Mos Def and Talib Kweli. Once he developed his sound, ELHAE went on to record his own projects like The Zero, Every Life Has an Ending and Before You Go. His 2015 EP, AURA, is a soulful selection that samples Michael Jackson and draws inspiration from Usher, while simultaneously showcasing his songwriting and soothing voice.

This show features Kyle Dion (R&B) and DVC.
