The Head and the Heart Coming to the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL--(Tuesday, February 18, 2014) — Indie Folk artist The Head and The Heart will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Thursday, May 8 at 8:00PM.
Leaving a variety of day jobs and academic pursuits, The Head and the Heart came together in the summer of 2009, during frequent visits to the open mic night at Conor Byrne in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. California-transplant Josiah Johnson and Virginia-native Jonathan Russell formed the core songwriting partnership, quickly adding keyboardist Kenny Hensley to the mix. The luminous Charity Rose Thielen, violin and vocals, had just returned from a year of studying and playing music in Paris. Drummer Tyler Williams cold left a successful band in Virginia after Jon sent him the demo of “Down in the Valley,” relocating across states to be a part of this. Finally, Chris Zasche, was bartending at Conor Byrne and mentioned one day that he’d be happy to play bass for the nascent band. It all felt right: The Head and the Heart was born. The band entered Seattle’s Studio Litho in early 2010 to record these songs that had been kicking and twisting in the catalytic development of their live show. Recorded by Shawn Simmons at Studio Litho and Steven Agui... [Read More]

Weezer Coming to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre
St. Augustine, FL (February 17, 2014) – Rock band Weezer is set to perform at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, June 6, 2014. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, February 21 at 10am.
Their debut album Weezer (aka “The Blue Album”), producer by Ric Ocasek, has been certified triple platinum in the United States, and remains the band’s all-time best seller. Upon completing the record, Weezer went on hiatus temporarily as Cuomo studied at Harvard. With help from the Spike Jonze-directed video, the single "Undone (The Sweater Song)" became a hit in the fall of 1994. But by the time the album's final single, "Say It Ain't So," was released in the summer of 1995, the group had gone on hiatus once again, with Cuomo returning to Harvard.
1996 saw Weezer's much-awaited second LP, entitled Pinkerton, released. It was quite different from 'Weezer'; the guitars were more gruff, the lyrics were deeper and much more exposed, and the band's talent and style had matured considerably. Weezer released three singles from Pinkerton: "El Scorcho", "The Good Life", and "Pink Triangle". Pinkerton eventually went gold in record sales and has ... [Read More]
