We were digging Friends’ ’90s-Luscious-Jackson-vibe when the Brooklyn-based band was in Columbus late last year. In June, Friends released Manifest! featuring a dozen danceable, new wave, pop nuggets that fans of Madonna’s earliest work might enjoy.
Friends returns to Columbus on Monday night performing with CD 102.5 favorites Two Door Cinema Club and Guards, featuring Richie James Follin (Willowz, Cults), at The Newport. Tickets are $25 at the door.
My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses will play the LC Pavilion in Columbus August 12th. While that alone might make you scream; it gets even better. This concert launches what is expected to be an ongoing partnership among PromoWest, Wexner Center, and CD 102.5. A portion of the show’s proceeds will benefit the Wexner Center for the Arts and Cd101 For the Kids.
Tickets are $39 in advance, or $43 day of and go on sale to the general public Friday, May 4 at 10 am at Ticketmaster.com.
for more info sbout the partnership keep reading after the jump.

Evan Dando’s on a nostalgia kick and we’re all invited to come on and feel The Lemonheads Tuesday night as Dando and company play It’s a Shame About Ray in it’s entirety at The Basement.
It’s crazy to think that this album, which most of us first discovered due to the (tacked on after original pressing) cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson”, will turn 20 years old in June. While the years immediately following It’s a Shame About Ray were good for the poster boy for alterna-slacker-rock, by the end of the ’90s, Dando’s substance abuse problems had spiraled out of control and the Lemonheads were put on ice between 1998 and 2004.
Dando’s live track record in the past 5 years has been spotty, but word on the street is that this recent run of shows have gone off without a hitch and that Dando’s in fine form. If you went a sneak preview of the potential setlist for the Columbus show, check out the songs the Lemonheads performed in Tennessee on March 3.
The Lemonheads, with special guest Meredith Sheldon, perform Tuesday, March 6 at The Basement. Doors open at 7pm and tickets are $15.
My request list for PromoWest this summer contains the following: Soundgarden, Faith No More, Slayer, and Pavement. Earlier this morning, PromoWest met one of my demands (I’m holding out for the other three).
Pavement plays The LC on September 16. Tickets ($32.50) go on sale this Saturday.
