Richie Ramone w/ Tender Beats, The Lost Riots, White Thrash

 $15 ($12 adv)/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones. He joined the Ramones in 1983 and first appeared with the band on their Subterranean Jungle tour. Richie performed in over 500 shows around the world with the Ramones and wrote several critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite songs for the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity. Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone, remarked that “[Richie] saved the band as far as I’m concerned. He’s the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones. He put the spirit back in the band.”

 SOLD OUT – Tuesday (9/3)
Future Island w/ The Fiction Kids

 $25/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Synthpop band formed in 2006 in Greenville, North Carolina and based in Baltimore, Maryland. Currently signed to 4AD.

 Wednesday (9/4)
Phantogram w/ Bob Moses

$35 ($29.50 adv)/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 College Street Music Hall – New Haven

 INFO: Phantogram — the New York-born duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel — has continued for almost a decade to change the zeitgeist by consistently challenging it with their signature blend of hard-hitting beats, guitar-driven dark psychedelia, and electronic pop. Since the arrival of 2010’s debut album Eyelid Movies and its two successors Voices and Three, the band has amassed nearly half-a-billion streams, achieved two Gold-Certified singles in the form of “Fall In Love” and “When I’m Small,” and become a festival staple while headlining sold out shows worldwide.

 Wednesday (9/4)
The Love Gang Forever Tour 2019: Cold Hart & Horse Head (GOTHBOICLIQUE) w/ Fish Narc, YAWNS, Fantasy Camp, Lil Zubin 

 $17 ($15 adv)/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Seemingly unrelated genres like emo, gothic rock, and country, Cold Hart has become an innovator of genre-defying music. Born and raised in the coastal city of Long Beach, California, Cold Hart was seldom seen without a skateboard in his hand. He would play records by post-punk’s Nick Cave or the Cure just as often as he would listen to rappers Speaker Knockerz and Chief Keef. In 2018, Cold Hart strayed away from sampling entirely on his acclaimed EP Wish Me Well, opting instead to incorporate live instrumentation with producer Yawns. Shortly after, the two released their smash hit “Eyes” with Rawska. Cold Hart’s listeners eagerly await his full-length debut studio album Good Morning Cruel World, which combines melodic elements of indie, post-punk, and hip-hop.


 Tuesday (10/1)
Bay Faction w/ Mons Vi, Vern Matz

 $12/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Florida Guilt is the debut album by Boston based trio Bay Faction (comprised of James McDermott, Kris Roman, and Alex Agresti). Sonically a departure from their released body of work, the band explores the duality between bedroom pop intimacy and the subdued energy of soft rock. Despite the band’s prolificity, Bay Faction have remained relatively quiet since their EP released in 2015, focusing on honing their craft as both songwriters and recording artists.

 Friday (11/1)
Hot Rod Circuit – “Sorry About Tomorrow” Album Show

 $22 ($18.50 adv)/All Ages/Doors at 7:00PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Hot Rod Circuit makes music for those times when you feel most alive. Whether that moment is during heartache or while driving down the road, Hot Rod Circuit’s Vagrant Records debut and third full length, Sorry About Tomorrow, fits just about any moment it may be needed for. Hot Rod Circuit have been around for 5 years, steadily winning fans since their inception in Alabama in 1997. The band relocated to the Northeast indie scene in 2008, initially residing in Connecticut. While releasing two full lengths on Triple Crown Records, the band crossed the US countless times on tours with The Get Up Kids, Jimmy Eat World, Saves The Day, Avail, Hot Water Music and At The Drive-In. Playing 250 shows a year, Hot Rod Circuit fine tuned their live act and soon made the jump to Vagrant Records.

 Friday (11/22)

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Tokyo, Japan based 4-piece Instrumental Rock band MONO was originally formed in 1999. Their unique approach of combining moving orchestral arrangements and shoegaze guitar noise is held in extremely high regard; so much so, that the band’s musicianship and the diverse musical palette has eclipsed the Rock genre and exists within its own realm. As British Musical Magazine NME once stated, “this is music for the Gods”. A particularly monumental live memory of the band was a special set of shows with a 23-piece orchestra in New York, Tokyo, London and Melbourne.

 Friday (11/29)
Vintage Trouble

 $25/All Ages/Doors at 7PM

 Space Ballroom – Hamden

 INFO: Greatness begets greatness. The more time you spend around perfection, the more it rubs off on you… Since forming in 2010, Vintage Trouble have quietly become rock ‘n’ roll’s best kept secret anointed by its very gods on international tours in every corner of the globe. Distilling swaggering rock, soulful blues, R&B (rhythm & blues) grooves, and pop ambition into a bold and brash brew, the quartet—Ty Taylor [vocals], Nalle Colt [guitar], Rick Barrio Dill [bass], and Richard Danielson [drums]—have logged 3,000 shows across 30 countries on tour with divinities such as The Who, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Lenny Kravitz, and Bon Jovi, to name a few.
