Sun Records is celebrating its 60th Golden Anniversary bash at the B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on Tuesday, March 27th.

From the history of rock to one of its biggest stars of the present, Tuesday will also see international sensation Gotye play a show at Webster Hall. The Belgian-Australian songsmith has been making waves Stateside after dominating the European charts with his album Making Mirrors.

 

Noisy, dreamy rockers The Joy Formidable are coming to Terminal 5 on Wednesday, March 28th. Their most recent record The Big Roar has been delighting fans of the loud end of the shoegaze spectrum since its release late last year.
