Spring has only recently sprung, but we're getting ahead of ourselves, drooling over the summer line-ups to be.
It looks like Grand Central isn't waiting around to announce some top-notch shows.They're digging deep and going hard, bringing a serious mix of old, new, electronic, analog, local, international and all flavors in between.
Whether you're looking to shake it down, funk it up, groove all night, rock the house, they've got something for you.
The summer season kicks off with Cinco De Massive, a stacked line-up of moombahton, trap and bass enthusiasts. Before fall can even peak it's head around, we'll have guitar-shredding legend Yngwie Malmsteen, Latin acid-jazz fusion group Los Amigos Invisbles, good ol' punky ska with a Urugyuan twist from La Vela Puerca, UK future synthpop darling Charli XCX, and classic '80s post-pop mayhem from Adam Ant.
