Led Zeppelin (Sundays 4-6pm OR 6-8pm - In Person)

Formed in 1968, Led Zeppelin was the ultimate rock band, setting the standard for musicianship and rock stardom. Combining elements of Blues, English Folk, and Mysticism, Led Zeppelin quickly became the World’s Biggest Band in the post Beatles era. Learning the music of Led Zeppelin is an essential experience for rock musicians. Songs like “Stairway to Heaven”, “Black Dog”, “Whole Lotta Love”, and too many more to name! 

 

Queens of Noise (Mondays 6:30-8:30pm In Person)

These groundbreaking rockers were activists for gender equality, women’s rights, and feminist ideals. You’ll find these bands on the fringe of the Riot Grrrl, Grunge, and Punk movements. They were controversial and challenged all the norms of rock music! Get ready for music from L7, Babes in Toyland, The Runaways, Hole, Sleater-Kinney, and more. This show is about making some noise and being heard! All genders welcome! Parental Advisory: Explicit lyrics and mature content.

Summer Mixtape (Tuesdays 4:30-6:30pm -  In Person) 

Summer is not complete without sunshine and a killer playlist! This show will be a mix of pop, surf, and rock! Great vocals, keys, and beats. Plenty of cool summer bass lines, guitar riffs and solos. Songs like Cruel Summer, The Boys of Summer, Summer of 69, Summertime Sadness. Add Dick Dale, The Ventures, and The Beach Boys for some classic vibes. 

Pop Punk (Wednesdays 4:30-6:30pm - In Person)

Pop Punk combines the fast tempos of punk rock with the melodies and chord progressions of pop music. Defined for its emphasis on traditional pop songcraft with youth struggles and anti-suburbia themes. These songs are high energy and super relatable. Rock out to bands like Blink 182, Green Day, Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, Sum 41, and more!  

Motown (Wednesdays 6:30-8:30pm - In Person)

Oh, that glorious Motown sound! You know it and love it! Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music. Founded by Berry Gordon, this black owned record label achieved crossover success with groundbreaking artists like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight & the Pips, and Bruno Mars. This music is sure to get you dancing! 

 

Rage Against the Machine (Thursdays 4:30-6:30 OR 6:30-8:30pm - In Person) 

One of the most politically charged bands ever, Rage Against the Machine, fused together punk rock, rap and thrash. This show is not for the faint of heart. Rage’s music is very aggressive, especially the vocals; it also has totally unique guitar sounds thanks to Tom Morello’s expermination with effects pedals. Parental Advisory: Explicit lyrics and mature content.
