If you're not at Coachella 2015 this weekend, there are other concerts happening around town that you can check out, Scenestar readers! Get over your Coachella 2015 FOMO by checking out our Show of the Night pick, Mos Def, AKA Yasiin Bey! Tonight he will headline an all-ages show at the Observatory in Santa Ana in support of his current album Yasiin Bey Presents. Yasiin Bey also has a 21+ show at the Mayan in downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, April 26.
Back for the first time since 2012 is the legendary Madonna! She will bring her Rebel Heart Tour to Los Angeles on Tuesday, October 27, performing an all-ages show at The Forum in Inglewood. This upcoming tour date is in support of her new album Rebel Heart, the follow-up to MDNA.
Alt-J recently released a new music video for "Pusher," a track from the album This Is All Yours. The music video was directed by Thomas Rhazi, who explains to Rolling Stone: It was about a guy breaking his neck in a very poetic way. We spoke about the British Speaker's Corners—all those men and women in the late Seventies preaching for their own reasons and beliefs. I wanted this film to be very humanist and as deep and simple as it could be."
There is yet another "Localchella" show that just got announced, courtesy of St. Vincent! The GRAMMY winner for Best Alternative Album will perform at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas on Friday, April 10, in support of her current self-titled album. St. Vincent also has Sunday sets at Coachella 2015.
