Both bands kicked-off their careers in 1996, going on to become well-known artists in the rock scene.

Lorde — Aug. 25: Mohegan Sun, Uncasville

The “Royals” indie popstar Lorde, who was originally scheduled to perform in April but had to postpone due to laryngitis, will rock Mohegan Sun Arena. She’s touring in support of her third studio record, Solar Power, which dropped in 2021. The record follows 2017’s Melodrama, which debuted at No. 1 with tracks “Green Light” and “Homemade Dynamite.” Known for her dreamy, monotone vocals and intricate lyrics, Lorde has become a force to be reckoned with, while also creating a unique space for herself in the scene with originality.

Dragged Under — Aug. 26: Webster Theatre, Hartford

Although Dragged Under includes newer faces in the punk-rock community, they’ve definitely already made a name for themselves. In 2020, the group debuted with The World Is In Your Way, scoring spots on the Billboard top alternative new artists and top current hard music charts, as well as a spot in the Top 10 on the US Alternative iTunes charts. Their sound, described as punk, metal, and hardcore, garnered attention with tracks like “Instability” and “Hypochondria.” Their sophomore LP dropped in June.

Mary Chapin Carpenter — Aug. 26: Ridgefield Playhouse, Ridgefield

Wilco — Aug. 27: Westville Music Bowl, New Haven

The alt-rockers of Wilco are back and on tour in support of their 12th studio LP, Cruel Country.

The group garnered success with the early 2000’s record Yankee Hotel Foxtrot with tracks “Jesus, Etc.” and “Heavy Metal Drummer.”

Boyz II Men — Aug. 28: Hartford HealthCare Amphitheatre, Bridgeport

The legendary Boyz II Men, or B2M, gained international success in the ’90s, becoming one of the most prominent vocal harmony groups in the U.S. While they originally started as a quartet, the group has gone on to become a trio. “Motownphilly,” “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” and “End of the Road” are just a few tracks that charted across the world, as well as “One Sweet Day” with Mariah Carey. The group last released Under the Streetlight in 2017.

Ben Folds — Aug. 28: College Street Music Hall, New Haven

While Ben Folds kicked-off his career as the frontman and pianist of the alt-rock trio Ben Folds Five throughout the ’90s, gaining attention with tracks “Kate,” “Brick,” and “Army,” Folds went on to become a successful solo artist. In the early 2000’s, he released Rockin’ The Suburbs, featuring “The Luckiest” and “Still Fighting It.”

Kany Garcia — Aug. 28: Toad’s Place, New Haven
