Five Best Concerts This Week
This week's roundup of concerts brings us everything from the ethereal sounds of veteran classical crossover artist Sarah Brightman, to the wobbling, in-your-face dubstep that characterizes Montreal-based duo Adventure Club.
Throw in a free show and a brand new music, art, and technology festival for good measure, and you've got a well-rounded week of musical goodness to carry you through the beginning of October and set the tone for the rest of the month.
Check out our picks for this week's best concerts in South Florida after the jump.
5. Adventure Club. 8 p.m., Saturday, October 5 at Club Cinema, 3251 N. Federal Highway, Lighthouse Point. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via ticketfly.com.
As the tools became more widely available throughout the earlier 2000s, many a young musician began to make the transition over to the mystifying world of EDM. While some flailed about terribly, others harnessed the power of the dubstep bass-drop into something palatable, even addictive.
Cue Christian Srigley and Leighton James, a.k.a. Adventure Club, the Montreal-based duo. They started out in high school as a hardcore pop-punk band, but later decided to move on to the more electronic sound of dubstep after getting bored with their sound. Now, they remix everyone from Foxes to Flight Facilities and Alexisonfire while teaming up with big names like Krewella on their original productions. Check them this Saturday at Club Cinema.
4. Sarah Brightman. 8 p.m., Saturday, October 5 at BB&T Center, 1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise. Tickets cost $27.50 to $435 plus fees via ticketmaster.com.
She has the voice of an angel and she sort of looks like she came out of an episode of Game of Thrones. Sarah Brightman has been serenading the world with her silky soprano voice for 40 years, becoming one of the biggest classical crossover artists ever. This Saturday, the legendary English lady makes a stop at BB&T Center for a night of her signature ethereal pop music.
3. Black Taxi. 8 p.m., Thursday, October 3 at Respectable Street, 518 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Admission is free. Visit Facebook for more details.
Like a New-Wavier version of electronic-influenced indie rockers Minus the Bear, New York's Black Taxi makes energetic pop music with a hint of that old punk-rock sensibility. This Thursday, they stop in West Palm for a free show at Respectable Street's indie-dance party, Flaunt.
