Andrew McMahon is one of the bravest men in the biz. It takes serious balls to disband not one, but TWO widely successful projects (Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin), go solo, and then start a THIRD full blown project. This time around, Andrew will be providing a look at the past, present, and future, performing songs from his catalog with Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate, material from his solo effort, ‘The Pop Underground EP’ (2013), and debuting material from his new project, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
Andrew will release his first album under his new moniker on October 14, 2014. His first single, “Cecelia and the Satellite,” a song about his recent leap into fatherhood, preceded the album. It has already garnered more than one million plays on Spotify. Other standout tracks on the album include “Canyon Moon” and “High Dive.”
McMahon first dove into popularity with Something Corporate in in 2000. With SoCo, McMahon penned singles such as “I Woke Up in a Car” and “Punk Rock Princess” as well as the band’s most notable song, “Konstantine.” The band went on hiatus in 2004, reuniting only for a quick tour in 2010 in support of a greatest hits package.
Jack’s Mannequin followed Something Corporate, which saw Andrew write more memorable songs including “Mix Tape,” “Dark Blue,” and “Swim.”
Andrew hosts his annual on November 11. Dear Jack Benefit in support of his Dear Jack Foundation. A Leukemia survivor himself, the foundation helps young adults fighting cancer.
Whether you’re just discovering the man who rocks the piano like none other with his new album or are a longtime Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin fan, this concert is not to be missed!

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness – “Cecilia and the Satellite”
To say that Hunter Hunted accomplished a lot in a short amount of time would be an understatement. Since the bands inception in January of 2013, they’ve been included in MTV’s Artists To Watch, Nylon’s “Bands to look out for”, Starbucks “Pick of The Week”, Teen Vogue’s “Jam’s of the year”, Billboard Magazines “Scouting Report”, and KCRW’s “Bands we Love”.
With standout track “Keep Together” making the rounds on TV shows like The Vampire Diaries, The Real World, and Pretty Little Liars, the band has performed everywhere from The Conan O’Brien show to The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
After their self-titled debut EP dropped, the band has kept busy, doing a US tour with Fitz and the Tantrums, a Midwest tour with the Mowgli’s, dates with Weezer, and a tour with FUN. Hunter Hunted also put on acclaimed sets at Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, Governors Ball, Firefly, and a number of other major festivals.
Junior Prom, the Brooklyn-based duo of Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger, introduce everything that makes the Elektra Records duo great. on their debut self-titled EP. There’s the sky-scraping vocal range, playful humor, and the crisp musical interplay. They’re whip-smart pop that you can dance to. If you like Phoenix, Cut Copy, or even New Order, odds are Junior Prom will be one of your new favorite bands. Regardless, their sound defies verbs, adjectives, and arbitrary genre divides. Junior Prom recorded and scrapped an entire album before releasing a single song. In an age where groups attempt to discover their sound as they progress, it highlights an unusual sonic maturity—or at least a preternaturally locked-in musical connection. Bonding over everyone from The Clash, to Earth Wind and Fire, to Bruno Mars, Ratensperger and Solomich navigate the terrain between indie rock, punk, and dance-pop. The arrangements always twist at a slightly different angle. But everyone is invited to the party. Pop music isn’t necessarily Britney Spears or Katy Perry. Pop is universal. Junior Prom is pop, but they’re also much more.
“It’s really about making music that hopefully encourages people to engage, whether they throw down on the dance floor, or roll down their windows, blast our music and sing along,” Ratensperger says. “No matter what song you put on, we want people to feel something.”
