It's Monday, which means a new wave of concert announcements is upon us. I'd include ticket links, but Ticketmaster's website is going berserk right now.
The biggest news of the day is Power 107.5 PowerFest, which hits LC Pavilion on Sunday, Sept. 1 with B.o.B., Machine Gun Kelly, Ace Hood, Sevyn Streeter, Ray Jr. and more.
Also announced today: Chaz Bundick's ever-evolving Toro y Moi plays Newport Music Hall on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
This one was announced last week and somehow slipped past me: Legendary party-starter and record-breaking drummer Andrew WK brings his Party Messiah Solo Tour to A&R Music Bar on Wednesday, Sept. 25. Tickets are on sale now for $17.
Also coming to A&R: Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen's The Pretty Reckless on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
And another at A&R: Futuristic British pop star Charlil XCX plays on Monday, Sept. 23. (If they're smart, they'll start it late after the Vampire Weekend/Sky Ferreira show next door.)
One more at A&R: Roots-rock duo Shovels & Rope return with rising star Shakey Graves on Friday, Sept. 20.
