13 Concerts You Need To See This Spring

13Shows

1. Jukebox The Ghost

When: Tuesday, February 16

Where: The Complex (The Grand)

Why: Jukebox The Ghost released their most recent album, self-titled, back in 2015 which has been critically acclaimed as their strongest album to date. This band has a knack for crafting bright, indie-pop earworm tunes and their latest release will serve as proof. If you’re looking for a band that gives great live energy, uplifts and moves the crowd but isn’t quite mosh-pit level, we highly recommend Jukebox The Ghost. They’ll be making their way here shortly with The Family Crest.

If you haven’t been getting your fill of angsty punk sing-a-longs, mosh pits and circle pits lately then this show will keep you satisfied until Warped Tour.
