  • Jessie J

    British babe Jessie J is one of those artists who is easy to love. Jessie combines powerhouse vocals that could overpower the likes of Aguilera or her recent collaborator, Ariana Grande, with British cheekiness and style to create her own brand of pop.

  • The Blood Brothers

    You patiently waited through all of the cheesy 10 year anniversary tours and band reunions of the last year (Brand New, Senses Fail, really?), hoping for something a bit less whiny.

  • La Roux

    In 2009, La Roux got stuck in our heads with hooks like “Going in for the kill, doing it for the thrill,” and “this time baby, I’ll be bulletproof.” After some time under the radar, the British singer/producer duo hit us with a new album this past July, Trouble in Paradise, reminding us of all […]

Headlining the standing room only venue, […]

  • tyDi

    In anticipation of his album Redefined, dropping at the end of September, Australian DJ and producer tyDi will party along with the bottle service club at the notorious club chain Pacha’s New York City location.
