BILLIE EILISH: An artist since birth, 15 year old Billie Eilish developed a keen appetite for music discovery, constantly combing Soundcloud and the internet at large for underground rap and chill artists. Simultaneously, she and her older brother Finneas quietly wrote and recorded a host of music, culminating with the breakthrough of “Ocean Eyes.” It became a veritable phenomenon, generating 40 million cumulative Spotify streams and 5 million YouTube/VEVO views.

Billie’s “gloom pop,” as she appropriately dubs it, is nothing short of magic as it continually surprises. “I don’t want to ever write or sing the same way everyone else does,” she leaves off. “It’s just me, and I’m always going to be myself.”

Opening for Billie, we have THUTMOSE! 23 years old. Born in Nigeria. Raised in Brooklyn. Drawing from worldly inspiration and dozens of genres, Thutmose is in his own lane and has proven it with his initial releases and blown up content.

Khalid in the Hub

Khalid in the Hub

Khalid in the Hub has been rescheduled for June 4th, 2017 with doors at 8:30 PM. For ticketholders unable to attend this new date, tickets can be refunded at the AS Ticket Office Monday- Friday, 10am- 5pm.

AS Program Board Presents… Khalid

Everything typically happens for the first time in high school. It’s the first moment behind the wheel, the first taste of freedom, and the first experience of love. Though not far removed from those days, 19-year- old El Paso, TX singer and songwriter Khalid revisits this seminal time on his full-length debut album, American Teen [Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records]. It reflects the spirit of classics such as The Breakfast Club and 90210 through a kaleidoscope of glitch-y soul-driven cinematic 21st century pop and his transient upbringing in a military family.

On the eve of his own graduation, Khalid created a bona fide hit in the form of the album’s breakout single “Location.” It generated over 26.5 million Spotify streams and 4 million YouTube views, received acclaim from Nylon, Pigeons & Planes, Earmilk, DJ Booth, and more, and figured prominently in Snapchat stories from Kylie Jenner, P. Diddy, and Rita Ora. As “Location” became a 21st century anthem, he landed a major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records.

Now, the album paints a modern picture of growing up in the age of Uber and Instagram. With its dreamy production and shimmering synths, the title track sums up the central theme.

“With this album, I want to show everyone it’s okay to have emotions, it’s okay to be happy, and it’s okay to be sad,” he concludes. “I feel like a lot of people are afraid to open up, and the trend is to be very cold. I’m throwing everything I’ve ever been through on the table. I’m giving everyone my take on high school and life. I’m looking forward to how kickass 2017 is going to be. I’m very excited for the year, for music, building new experiences, making friends, and coming back to El Paso after everything happens. It’s going to be amazing.”

XXYYXX is the electronic project of Orlando, FL’s Marcel Everett. Starting purely out of experimentation, Marcel’s taste for electronic music has evolved from the low-fidelity of vintage sounds to crisp and clean scenes of serenity. Improvisational jazz and abstract hip hop serve as worthy emblems of inspiration. His productions take steps across a unique spectrum of bass-heavy sounds with experience in minimalist ambience. Provoking a myriad of images, the music is meditative and emotive. R&B rhythms and soulful melodies are staples that propel the music forward, creating open environments that feed into moments of movement.

Very few artists have truly been able to adapt to the constantly evolving electronic music landscape. Fewer have been able to organically rack up over 5.5 million plays, blow the internet away on both original content and remixes, gather support from some of the biggest players in the industry, and make an appearance at the legendary Coachella Music Festival. Still, even fewer have managed to do all of these things before their 18th birthday. Andrew Luce, a Bay Area native, has shown the talent of performers twice his age, making waves with a distinct and well-executed sound design that consistently employs a powerful low end. Whether you’re dancing on the floor or trying to impress that special someone back at home, Luce has you covered.

Tijuana Panthers: Chad Wachtel, Daniel Michicoff and Phil Saheen are Tijuana Panthers, a trio hailing from Long Beach, California are fusing lo-fi garage and surf rock with punk in an unprecedented fashion, crafting perfect pop while delivering with energy and immediacy. After meeting at a church camp in middle school and bonding over a shared love of skating and surfing, a shared passion of music brought the three together, forming Tijuana Panthers. After releasing their debut 7”, “Girls Gone Wild” b/w “Creature” in 2009, the band released their first record Max Baker garnering acclaim from the blogosphere just a year later. In 2013, Innovative Leisure put out Tijuana Panthers’ label debut, Semi-Sweet, following up with an extensive tour supporting the likes of Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, The Growlers, and label-mate Hanni El Khatib while also holding their own at major festivals like Coachella, Burgerama and Beach Goth. After releasing their third and fourth LP’s Wayne Interest and Poster, they’ve returned in the summer of 2016 with their most confident release yet, the Ghost Food EP via Innovative Leisure.

Ducktails: After spending the summer before his senior year of college in Northampton, Massachusetts, New Jersey native Matt Mondanile formed his solo recording project, Ducktails. A play on the classic 90s cartoon series, Mondanile began releasing music under the moniker in 2007 with his cassette debut 1992 Demo. In 2008, along with high school friends, he began playing guitar in indie-alt band Real Estate, while still keeping Ducktails afloat, releasing his self-titled debut album in 2009 on Not Not Fun, and quickly followed up with a second album, Landscapes, both receiving critical acclaim. In 2011, Mondanile transitioned from experimental psych rock toward pop with Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, which Pitchfork praised as “a subtle refraction of the Ducktails aesthetic, where the brittle abstraction and detours down lo-fi cul-de-sacs are siphoned into songs that are breezier, less inward looking, more in thrall to the possibilities of pop.” After releasing two more Ducktails albums, 2013’s The Flower Lane and 2014’s St. Catherine, and simultaneously working on three Real Estate albums, Mondanile made the decision to part with Real Estate to “focus his creative energy on Ducktails.” As a mainstay on BBC 6Music and an indie blog favorite, Ducktails has since been working on the follow-up to St. Catherine, having most recently released a self-directed video for the dreamy, synth heavy single “Don’t Want To Let You Know.”
