Weekend Pick: Hannibal Buress at The Wiltern

Hannibal Buress, the comedian, actor, writer, and hilarious inciter of certain controversies – ahem, Bill Crosby, ahem – is coming to The Wiltern this Friday. The Chicago-native, New York City-resident has had his stand-up featured on countless Comedy Central programs and has written for the likes of SNL and 30 Rock.

On top of splitting sides and blowing minds with his stand-up routines, the talented comic is also making plenty of hilariously deadpan cameos in films (the cop in Neighbors was one of our favorite parts of the movie) and respected comedy shows like Louie and - our recent obsession - Broad City.

TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT
Echosmith Embarks on International Headlining Tour

Ferris Bueller has gone on the record saying that life moves pretty fast, and despite the fact that the four siblings who make up the indie pop group Echosmith may be too young to have seen the 1986 classic, they’re living proof of that mantra.

Like most music groups of their generation, Echosmith rose to prominence thanks to the Internet. More specifically, YouTube. Starting by posting covers of popular songs of the time like “Lights” by Ellie Goulding and “Set Fire to the Rain” by Adele, they quickly moved on to original content, catching the eye of Warner Bros. Records. Soon the teenage siblings found themselves on the Vans Warped Tour and later, opening for Owl City. Next came a debut album Talking Dreams whose modern youth anthem “Cool Kids” went on to be certified platinum with over 1,200,000 sales in the US, catapulting the virtually unknown band into the national spotlight. Now, the Sierota siblings are headlining their own tour and coming to a city near you.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW
Bells & Robes Brings the Groove to AURA's Silent Disco
From March 6 to 8, AURA Music & Arts Festival will invade the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park with sincere souls and smooth sounds. The sixith annual primitive camping festival presents three days of diverse, feel-good music across five stages, with a stacked late-night silent disco to keep the groove going strong.
The line-up features tons of fresh talent, but attendees will not want to miss up-and-coming act Bells & Robes. Hailing from Gainesville, Fla., Bells & Robes is an electronic dreamwave duo comprised of Luke Sipka and Dean Spaniol. Since their formation in summer 2012, Bells & Robes has evolved to create a transcendental auditory experience that feels somewhat like a dream. Their ability to combine soft, funky sounds with a danceable rythtmic wave will keep the crowd stayin' alive all night long. No strangers to Suwannee, the duo performed in Live Oak, Fla., at Purple Hatter's Ball in 2014 and plans to return to the forest to add spice to the silent disco. Bells & Robes has previously performed alongside acts such as Beats Antique, Emancipator, Odezsa, Papadosio, Reptar, Break Science, Stokeswood, The Heavy Pets, Antihero, Dynohunter and Sounduo, and at multiple festivals in the southeast. Their recent EP, "One Should See Sound", was released exclusively on Grooveshark in September, and was widely successful in the local jamtronica scene. The album embodies their belief that music should meld the senses to create a unified, heightened festival experience. In spring 2015, Bells & Robes will be joining Dynohunter on the road for the The Nomad Tour, which is set to hit states such as Colorado, Califronia and Florida.
