While baseball dominated the bars and restaurants of Columbus, Canadian indie-pop-rock twins Tegan and Sara brought an alternative to bats and balls to town with almost two decades worth of infectious radio-friendly genre-hopping synth ‘n roll to the indoor Express! Live stage on Tuesday night. The band are currently touring “Love You to Death”, released […]
The Canadian-born singers, songwriters, and activists continue the second leg of their world tour to support their new album "Love You to Death" with a stop at EXPRESS LIVE! on October 25th
As sonic landscapes go, the distance between the Calgary, Alberta-born duo Tegan and Sara’s debut album, 1998’s Under Feet Like Ours, and their recently-released Love You to Death, couldn’t be wider. The looser, neo-folk jams of their earliest records seem half a world away from the precise synth-driven sharpness of new cuts like “Boyfriend” and […]
About to release their ninth studio album, "Integrity Blues", the pride of Mesa, Arizona brings their anthemic pop-rock to Newport Music Hall on Thursday night.
Most thirty-somethings will recall “The Middle” as Jimmy Eat World’s arrival into public consciousness when it was released in the fall of 2001, a few months after the band’s fourth album, Bleed American, hit retail shelves.

An early fall chill may be in the air, but that didn’t stop the nu metal sounds of rock veterans Korn from burning up a near sold-out Express Live! on Friday night as the band, along with fellow hard-rock artists Breaking Benjamin, stopped by Columbus for their co-headline Nocturnal Underground tour. To view more upcoming […]
The high-profile Hartford-based band can be heard in countless promos and commercials, but tonight they'll just play for their own captive audience at Rumba Cafe.
Hartford-based American indie/roots rock outfit Bronze Radio Return will take the stage Saturday night at the Rumba Cafe. Their bright, sing-a-long-worthy first single, “Light Me Up”, seems as if it was almost intentionally written as soundtrack material. TV has certainly taken the bait – it’s been featured in promos for the new Showtime original series, […]
An unfortunate sickness and a few cancelled dates meant that Columbus became the unlikely city for the beginning of Green Day’s world tour and a place for the punk-rock icons to deliver a back-to-basics rock and roll show that the 1500+ lucky fans crammed into the Newport won’t forget for many a year. The band […]
