Our Must-Hears at Music Midtown

Coldplay, The Joy Formidable, and More

coldplay in concert!

We thought Music Midtown broke up with us for good in 2005, but it’s back and coming on strong (typical of musician types). Here are our picks to ignite the festival flame.

Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,” by Coldplay
(Just don’t go chasing them.)

Next Girl,” by The Black Keys
(You were the first.)

Apartment,” by Young the Giant
(Our place or yours?)

Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked,” by Cage the Elephant
(We need a nap.)

Simple Math,” by Manchester Orchestra
(You + us = awesome.)

Cradle,” by The Joy Formidable
(Rock it; don’t rob it.)

Light of the Morning,” by Band of Skulls
(Coffee. Advil. Brunch.)

Perfect Day,” by The Constellations
(Here’s hoping.)

Can’t Stand Still,” by The Postelles
(You were born to dance.)

I Want! I Want!,” by Walk the Moon
(Ask politely and ye shall receive.)
