4. MELANIE FIONA
Thursday, February 15, 2018, 7:30 p.m
Not having heard from Melanie in a while, one would’ve thought she was done with music. Hopefully, with this show, she’ll come with some new material and show us she’s still got it. Her opening acts will include singer Aaron Camper and North Philly resident and world-renown drummer, George “Spanky” McCurdy’s trio. Learn more HERE.

5. TYLER, THE CREATOR AND VINCE STAPLES
Thursday, February 15, 2018, 7:30 p.m.
I think we can all agree that prior to his latest album, “Flower Boy,” Tyler was a weird one. Flower Boy pleasantly surprised us all and showed his range of talent that was a bit more digestible to those unfamiliar with his work. He’ll be performing at the Liacouras Center alongside Odd Future-adjacent, avant-garde rapper, Vince Staples. Learn more HERE.
