    Lola Tried (tour kickoff) w/ Ringo Deathstarr, Duncan Fellows, Blushing

    Lola Tried’s songwriting prickles with emotive catharsis, teetering between seething exasperation and sharp self-affirmation. The local foursome pummels a hooky, attitudinal collision of biting power-pop sliced by guitarist/vocalist Lauren Burton’s quaking howl. Doubling as a release show for Lola Tried’s self-titled debut and tour kick-off, the bill also features Ringo Deathstarr’s thunderous scuzz, Blushing’s blissed-out shoegaze, and summery indie-pop via Duncan Fellows.

    Smokepurpp, Larry June, 4tify, Lil Mosey

    Omar Pineiro, 21, jumped from Miami SoundCloud rapper to Billboard mixtape breakout when 2017 debut Deadstar charted at No. 42. Lil Pump’s sidekick in his social media antics, the trap music devotee has a baby bottle of lean tattooed on his chest and disses J. Cole on Twitter. Last month’s Bless Yo Trap, a confection of aggro rap dripping with spooky synths and produced by Murda Beatz, is a tribute to teenage rap trends. Seattle SoundCloud millennial Lil Mosey and Bay Area cum Atlanta rapper Larry June open.

    David Crosby & friends

    David Crosby is in the midst of a creative rejuvenation, releasing three solo albums since 2014 and each more adventurous and complex than the last. The seminal songwriter credits the renaissance to number of factors: his near-death liver transplant in 1994; his reunion with his biological son, James Raymond, in the late Nineties; and perhaps most freeing, his break with the Crosby, Stills & Nash reunion tours of the past decade. “Getting out of CSN was a good thing,” he attests. “It was a very tough decision to make because that’s a big paycheck and it was comfortable and easy, but it had gotten to the point where we didn’t like each other and we were just turning on the smoke machine and playing our hits. It wasn’t good. It wasn’t fun. The joy of the music had gone. “It was a really tough decision to make,” he repeats. “With streaming taking away half our income, they just don’t pay us on records anymore. I’ve lost half my income. Then I quit CSN and lost half my income again. So I’m making about a quarter as much as I used to. There’s a chance I’ll lose my house.” Last fall’s Sky Trails, produced by Raymond, swaggered between Steely Dan-tinged funk grooves and jazz-touched folk while sustaining Crosby’s more introspective and political inflections. “I do think that I’m making the best music I can make, and that’s really crucial to me,” he says. “I think I’ve been given a gift that I really should concentrate on making the very best music that is humanly possible to do. “What it comes down to is time. Time is the final currency, not money. Not power. “Your time is the most precious thing you have.”
