Phoenix, featuring vocalist Thomas Mars, bassist Deck d'Arcy, and guitarists Christian Mazzalai and Laurent Brancowitz, appeared on the music scene in 2000 with the debut album United. Since then, the alternative rockers from France released Alphabetical in 2004, It's Never Been Like That in 2006, and their mainstream breakthrough, the critically adored Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix in 2009 featuring hit songs “1901” and “Lisztomania.”

New Order with special guest Johnny Marr at the Boulevard Pool
$40 (plus applicable taxes and service charges)
When Joy Division's Ian Curtis committed suicide in May 1980, the band’s three remaining members, Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and Stephen Morris continued under the name New Order. Sumner took over vocal duties and the trio embarked on a low-key tour of the U.S., intent on continuing as an entity independent of the massive reputation Joy Division had achieved shortly before their demise. Later that same year they recruited Morris's girlfriend, Gillian Gilbert and wrote and rehearsed their debut album, Movement, which was released the following year. New Order went on to become one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of the 1980’s. Since then, the group has released a multitude of albums, including 2013’s Lost Sirens.

Vampire Weekend, featuring Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, Rostam Batmanglij and Chris Tomson, came together in early 2006 while its members were attending school at Columbia University. The group released its self-titled debut album in early 2008, which debuted within the Top 20 of both the American and U.K. album charts and went on to become one of the year's most popular indie releases. Following two years on the road, Vampire Weekend released its second album, Contra, in early 2010.

Of Monsters and Men is an amiable group of five day dreamers from Iceland whose debut album, My Head Is An Animal, is a collection of infectious folkie pop songs.

After a veritable breakout year, My Head Is An Animal was officially certified platinum worldwide by the RIAA. Surpassing 1 million sales, the record remains a clarion call for the band's inimitable, intimate, and invigorating style.
Formed in 2008, Local Natives craft their dramatic and eclectic brand of indie rock from their home base in Los Angeles. Featuring guitarists Ryan Hahn and Taylor Rice, keyboardist Kelcey Ayer and drummer Matt Frazier, Local Natives’ debut album, Gorilla Manor, arrived in the U.K. in 2009 and in the U.S. the next year. In January 2013, the band released its sophomore album, Hummingbird, featuring the single "Breakers."

Band of Horses with special guest Jake Bugg at the Boulevard Pool
