Nico Stai Is Kind Of Cute!

We are so excited to welcome Nico Stai to the Roxy stage for the first time! A word of mouth artist, who’s been coined as “…the new boss” by Flaunt Magazine and compared to the likes of Matt Costa with his “achingly emotional acoustic tunes. Beautiful melodies and all the sensibilities of the purest singer-songwriters” according to Cd Review.com. We’re pretty happy to have him, along with Monster in the Machine, Robert Francis, and ROCKFOUR. Definitely a show to check out! Oh, and he’s kind of cute.

Filter's Revenge of the Sunset Strip, Sean Patrick, and i.d.e.a. Present DJ Andy Smith, Troublemaker, J-Logic

Portishead‘s former DJ Andy Smith first met group frontman Geoff Barrow while the two were at school; he eventually joined Barrow’s touring band as support DJ. He also appeared with the Fugees, Republica, and Prophets of the City, and released his debut mix album, The Document, in early 1998. A follow-up was five years in coming, but The Document II proved just as varied and exciting as the first. – John Bush, All Music Guide

the first time I saw Joseph Arthur I levitated. Was about 1/2 an inch off the ground for about an hour. Dark Corner. Jack n Coke. Was flying solo as there was not room for even one more at Largo that night… An artist not to be missed and a show I’ll never forget. No need to say, it’s an honor to have Joseph Arthur for a 2 night run at The Roxy.

Billboard Magazine says, “a mature effort that shines with nakedness and clarity”

Entertainment Weekly says, “With images of needles, blood, and pills, Daydream’s song cycle moves through each breakup station of the cross with shimmering guitars and Arthur’s ecstatically woozy falsetto, finally emerging with a sweet, if hard-won hope. A -”
