Tame Impala - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Tame Impala
Winning widespread critical acclaim from music publications, and also winning the hearts of music lovers the world over, Tame Impala's most recent album Lonerism was released in late 2012 and has gone on to sell in excess of 172,000 copies in the United States, and was nominated for Best Alternative Album at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Tame Impala first toured the U.S. in 2010, playing small clubs for crowds of 200. A handful of trips to the U.S. later and thanks to the ravenous demand of fans for the band's transcendent live performance, Tame Impala will return to the U.S. for major headlining shows scheduled in New York City, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV and Oakland, CA. Delicate Steve will support all shows.

Last month, Tame Impala released Live Versions, an album of songs selected from a 2013 Chicago Tame Impala concert. Chief songwriter Kevin Parker chose the 9 tracks for the record based on how different the live versions are from the album versions. Parker's goal was to give fans something they won't already have; something they've only previously experienced at a Tame Impala show. Songs from this show were recorded by and broadcast on WXRT. Live Versions was originally released on vinyl only as a limited release in celebration of 2014's Record Store Day and was the highest selling Record Store Day 2014 release.

Prior to Live Versions Tame Impala have released a self-titeld EP and two full length albums-Innerspeaker and their recent, Lonerism. Lonerism features the hits 'Elephant' and 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.' The album reached the #1 spot on the CMJ chart and received wide commercial alternative airplay as well.
Mini Mansions - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Mini Mansions
If pure sound had the capability to project images on a blank wall, Mini Mansions would be worthy projectionists. Michael Shuman (from Queens Of The Stone Age) melded heads and locked arms with longtime friends Tyler Parkford and Zach Dawes in a dusty room in the San Fernando Valley. Here, they began a collaborative séance out of which birthed Mini Mansions. Though their triangle is usually confined to piano, bass, and a cocktail drum kit, the LA-based trio generates a Technicolor spectrum of sound drawn from the baroque, gothic, psychedelic, and cinematic realms. Whilst finishing their next record (for Capitol Records) they've taken it upon themselves to play a few special shows for you.
