Mitski @ Hollywood Palladium [Tickets]
Mitski’s Be The Cowboy is one of Uproxx’s 50 Best Albums of 2018 and is No. 3 on Uproxx’s 2018 Critics Poll. Her magnetic tracks “Geyser,” “Nobody” and “Two Slow Dancers,” deserve to be heard live as Mitski is known for entrancing her fans with intimately fulfilling performances.
Mozzy @ El Rey Theatre [Tickets]
Mozzy’s Internal Affairs made its way to streaming services in May and now the Oak Park native is making his rounds across the nation. Mozzy recently linked up with up-and-comer Guapdad 4000 for the track “Scammin” and continues to be the voice of the streets as the gangland landlord.

Dirty Projectors @ The Wiltern [Tickets]
Last summer, New York indie rock band Dirty Projectors released Lamp Lit Prose along with singles “Break-Thru” and “That’s A Lifestyle.” Their Tiny Desk performance with NPR was pretty neat and really shows off how talented these troupe of musicians are in real life, offering a convincing reason to catch them live.
