Angela McCluskey - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Angela McCluskey
Hailed by Vanity Fair as a "chortling, cussing, room-dominating force of nature”, Angela McCluskey —in words— is not the easiest thing to do. If you’ve met her, or have been lucky enough to see her perform —you will understand.

Angela first achieved iconic recognition as the singer of the LA band, Wild Co-lonials—with whom she released three albums: Fruit of Life (1993), This Can't Be Life (1996) and Reel Life in 2000. The band were a legendary staple of the LA scene in the 90’s.

Since then, her life has taken her all over the world. In 2004, Angela released the critically acclaimed album The Things We Do which Paste Magazine described as an album that “will break your heart and gently put it back together again”. Alan Magee at The Guardian, heralded her voice as "an incredible juxtaposition of the greats: Beth Gibbons, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.”

Angela toured the U.S., having been hand picked by Michael Stipe to open for REM, she wrote the #1 best selling GRAMMY nominated song “Breathe”, with French electronic trio, Telepopmusik. she then collaborated with Morgan Page and BT on the smash hit #1 dance single “In the Air” and featured heavily on Robbie Robertson’s How to be Clairvoyant, and has worked with Paul Oaken-fold, Parov Stelar, Kendrick Lamar and others—and her reimagining of George Harrison’s “Here Comes The Sun” for the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund made us all wonder if we could ever hear the original again.

In 2016, Angela was featured on Big Gigantic’s latest track, “The Little Things”, which exploded to #3 on the Global Spotify chart, was featured in Nike’s new ad campaign and on Season 2 of Empire.

Celebrating The Roxy Sessions, Angela’s fourth solo album. She will be reuni-ting her original band Wild Colonials for one night ONLY—in LA, where it all began.

In Angela’s own words, the new album describes “coming through it all—the success, the failure, the heartache and despair— and finding yourself being a lit-tle less dramatic about love and intent on just enjoying your life and being thank-ful for what you’ve got— and that’s something worth celebrating!”
