Neon Trees - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Neon Trees
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a New Wave pop powerhouse," Neon Trees first united in 2006 and instantly attracted acclaim and attention for their kaleidoscopic sound and affirmative vision, showcased on 2010's extraordinary debut album, HABITS. The album proved a phenomenon from the start, ascending to #1 on Billboard's "Heatseekers Albums" chart following the breakthrough success of its lead single, "Animal." A true international smash with 75 million streams to date, "Animal" reached the upper regions of an array of airplay and sales charts, including #1 on Billboard's "Alternative Songs" chart - the band's first ever #1 single. Now certified 2x platinum by the RIAA, "Animal" eventually received "Top Alternative Song" honors at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards, while also being featured in a long list of TV, film, and video game soundtracks and advertising campaigns. PICTURE SHOW followed two years later, highlighted by the 4x platinum certified blockbuster, "Everybody Talks", Neon Trees' first single to reach the top 10 on Billboard's "Hot 100" as well as their first ever #1 on the "Hot AC" chart. The song has been streamed 130 million times to date. POP PSYCHOLOGY made a stunning top-10 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 upon its April 2014 release - Neon Trees' highest chart placement to date. The album's popular success was driven in large part by the multi-format smash single/video, "Sleeping With A Friend," now certified gold by the RIAA for sales and streams in excess of 41 million.
The Provo, UT-based band is currently hard at work in the studio, preparing the eagerly awaited follow-up to their 3rd album, 2014's acclaimed POP PSYCHOLOGY. "It seems strange to say this but: We're back," wrote Neon Trees in a recent Facebook post. "It's been three years since our last album, and after years of being a band together, touring the world and living the dreams of our youth, we took an important break, one that's refreshed all of us and refocused what our band is and what we want to do next...Thank you for being with us all these years, and we can't wait to show you all what we've been up to and what we have in store."
I Don’t Know How but They Found Me - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
I Don’t Know How but They Found Me
Dallon Weekes, current Panic! At The Disco bassist, keyboardist, backing vocalist and songwriter, introduces his brand new project, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me. IDK is a musical entity before its time, one that, according to Weekes, faded away into obscurity in the early 80s, and today, through the internet, sees its performances and recordings being rediscovered by a world that finally just might be ready for IDK’s genius.

“I was in the middle of making a record when I came across this series of old cable access talent shows from thirty years ago,” said Weekes. “It was this bizarre, low budget parade of the strangest people, and I couldn’t stop watching it. I wanted to be on this crazy show, which was of course impossible. That’s when the concept of 'I Don’t Know How But They Found Me' began.”

The concept for IDK began about a year ago at Weekes’ kitchen table where he recorded the major of IDK’s songs. With a nearly non-existant budget, the project was forged in large part by friends who made necessities like recording equipment available to Weekes.

Live performances came next with Weekes enlisting drummer Ryan Seaman. Over the past several months, I Don’t Know How But They Found Me (a memorable line of dialogue taken from the classic time travel adventure “Back To The Future”) has played several “pop-up” shows around Los Angeles, each one supported by a single Instagram posting, and all near-instant sell outs. With an initial seeding of the project to Weekes’ half-million Instagram followers, IDK has already accumulated more than 20,000 followers on its recently launched Instagram account. And early press feedback has been quite promising: “...the duo vibe of Twenty One Pilots and the rock vibe of what you would want The Beatles to sound like in a modern era,"

"There are so many great/brilliant artists that I've been exposed to because of the internet,” added Weekes., “acts like Death, The Nerves or Sparks. Brilliant acts who never achieved the massive success and cultural notoriety they had hoped for. As a fan, its so fun to discover something you didn't know existed before. Every time someone re-discovers acts like this, it's almost like giving them more of that chance they never had before. So I decided to make IDK an act from the past. One who WAS on this cable access show thirty years ago. A band that already had a story, but one that had to be discovered a piece at a time...”
