Tame Impala: Tame Impala tour dates are currently scheduled internationally and they are hoping to hit it big with a high profile performance at Coachella Valley Music Festival. Australian rock's latest export will be in your area this Spring and Summer, 2011.

The foursome got its start in high school music class in Australia's western city of Perth. They draw heavily on sixties psychedelic rock, folk, and Beatles influenced melodies. They are a self-described "psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock" band. The original band formed in 2005 and got their start after coming in second at the 2005 Australian music competition, Ampfest. The band unveiled their current name, as well as a new drummer in 2007 and inked a deal with Modular Recordings the following year.

The newly incorporated Tame Impala hit the studio to record their debut EP, "Tame Impala [H.I.T.S. 003]" which was an immediate success. The EP hit #10 on The ARIA charts and released three singles to national radio. The band described the EP as "a beautiful snapshot into what lies within this beast." Tame Impala tour dates were booked nationally, and the band served as the opener for supergroups The Black Keys and MGMT when they traveled down under to perform. The Tame Impala concert schedule also included performances at "Southband" and "Falls Festival" and included a small Australian headlining tour in support of the debut EP.

The band returned to the studio in 2009 to record new tracks and scored a hit with "Sundown Syndrome," which was included on the soundtrack for "The Kids Are All Right," which was nominated for the Best Picture at the 2011 Academy Awards. They booked a national tour in support of the single and their second self-titled EP. Tame Impala concert dates included outings at 2010's "Big Day Out" festival as well as co-headlining performances with Rise Against and Muse.

Their highly anticipated debut LP, "Innerspeaker," was finally released to Australia in May, 2010 and the US in June, 2010 and was an immediate success. It hit the top ten of the ARIA albums chart and was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone magazine. The Tame Impala concert schedule boasted a 2010 headlining tour in Australia and they served as the opening act for MGMT on their American tour. The guys returned to the US for a twenty date headlining tour in late 2010 and were nominated for four ARIA Music Awards at the 2010 ceremony.

The band is a prolific touring act and Tame Impala tour dates are booked internationally through July, 2011. They will appear at California's famed Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April, 2011. They also have dates scheduled at other international festivals and individual shows. They are on the forefront of a musical revolution, don't miss out when they come to a venue near you. Use Eventful as your source for Tame Impala concert dates and venue information .

Santigold: This is better than good; this is gold— SANTIGOLD!

Santigold is a survivor of a half century worth of living along musical evolution’s most cutting edges. The only live act that can boast of having out-aged Barbara Bush, having outlived Mr. Miyagi and out styled Liberace, Santigold is here with future flavor.

Already receiving weighty club rotation and airplay in urban Afghanistan and downtown Beirut, Santigold is the first act of the century to boast a post-war following on the International Space Station Mir. Following a live performance broadcast from three thousand miles off the Cape of Good Hope last June, inmates at Leavenworth Penitentiary received Santigold with a celebratory confetti parade. Just another first for the modern super group that knows no bound.

Composed of absolutely no members, Santigold is also the first musical outfit capable of claiming the planet’s broiling collective consciousness as their front woman. Longtime collaborator, singer and songwriter Santi White says of her work with Santigold, “We began trying to write pop songs to sell, which made us depressed, so we started writing songs for ourselves instead.” The results of that self centered conceit is the songwriting work heard for the first time on the full length self-titled Santigold album, released in 2008 on Downtown/Lizard King (US) and Atlantic (UK).

As unmastered tracks leaked over the internet this past November, the request lines of radio stations from Miami to Hanoi began freezing with a flood of calls from listeners eager to hear the new Santigold sound over their frequencies. From his radio show in the United Arab Emirates capital city of Abu Dhabi, Michael Jackson (the King of Pop) played what Santigold snippets he had been able to pirate from a bootleg MySpace page dedicated to the group. Days later, BBC Radio One reported that the unreleased Santigold debut was heard blasting from the iPod shuffle of Libyan ruler Moammar Qaddafi as he entered an international summit in the Nigerian capital of Abuja. Recognizing the urgent need to address the uproarious buzz, Santigold released the following statement through their label reps : “The response to our unmastered songs has been both premature and phenomenal! We were happy to hear that the children of Darfur have found hope in our melodic interpretation of life on the battlefield of love! We’re hoping that each and every 20-something from downtown San Francisco to central Mumbai will also learn something from our work! And to the people dropping no-knock fire on old ladies in Atlanta: shame on you! Santigold ain’t with that shit!”

The trajectory of such early successes leading to newfound political clout is nothing new for Santigold, whose debut album, though half a century in the making, is sure to rock glass pipes from the Lincoln Memorial to Buckingham palace. The flavor of the gold is guaranteed: Santigold!
