War-on-Drugs

Spring is in full-bloom, and festival season is officially upon us. The best concerts are popping up all over the country, so it was tough to pick only three artists for this month’s Ticketfly Tours. We honed it down the The War on Drugs, Chromeo, and Yelawolf. Whether you’re into indie-rock, funk, or hip hop, we’ve got a show near you:

THE WAR ON DRUGS

Philadelphia indie-rock band, The War on Drugs, is making major waves with their most recent release Lost in the Dream (released March 2014 on Secretly Canadian) and two hour live sets this tour. With Don Henley-esque vocals and hints of Dylan, Petty, and Springsteen, The War on Drugs’ new, energetic sound earned them an 8.8 Pitchfork review, and they’ve already hit the #26 spot on the Billboard 200 charts.
