Ohio's WALK THE MOON have been captivating audiences with their energetic live shows for the better part of a decade. The band first made a name for themselves by touring relentlessly in support of their self-titled debut, which featured the indie classic "Anna Sun." The alt-rock-pop quartet were then catapulted into the spotlight when 2014's "Shut Up and Dance" became a multi-platinum global smash, crossing sonic barriers to top three different Billboard charts. After two years of performing countless sold-out shows in twenty-five countries across five continents, the band returned to the studio to craft their third major label release, 2017's What If Nothing. The new album shows the band simultaneously at their most epic and their must vulnerable, a daring step forward both musically and lyrically.Tickets are $30.50 in advance, $35 day of show (including all service charges). They are also available through Hold My Ticket (112 2nd St SW), 505-886-1251, Monday to Friday 9 AM - 6 PM, Sat & Sun 11 AM - 6 PM. VIP packages are available for $199 (The "What If Nothing" Ultimate Experience) and $99 (The "Press Restart" VIP Experience). VIP packages include early entry, exclusive merchandise and an invitation to "The Eclipse Club" pre-show venue hang.

Walk The Moon
Courtesy of the artist

Walk the Moon is the name of a quartet of dudes from Cincinnati, Ohio, (which is in the the same mysterious universe Leeches of Lore main man Steve Hammond disappeared into last year) who make a sort of rocanrol that can be best catagorized as electronic-pop-new wave stuff inflected with a danceable indie attitude. That’s right, the kids love them. And you are correct sir, the band won a category called “Best Party Song” at 2015’s Teen Choice Awards. And the accolades have just kept coming; I hear iheartradio and Billboard magazine love them as much as one can love a band of youngish rock rapscallions. Does TigerBeat know about these dudes? Anywho, members Nicolas Petricca, Kevin Ray, Sean Waugaman and Eli Maiman have built a seven- or eight-year career making rollicking, rootin’, tootin’ rocanrol. You can see them do their thing at Sunshine Theater (120 Central Ave. SW) on Monday, Feb. 5. But G_d help you if you make it out alive. Just kidding. Rock on. $30 to $199 • 8pm • 13+.
