We are ’42,’ a tribute to one of the finest bands in the world, Coldplay.

We don’t view ourselves as another ‘Tribute’ band on the bill or an act of imitation. Instead, we pour ourselves into every song & performance out of our own genuine love for Coldplay & their music. The raw energy and emotion we devote to each song is sincere & we’re insanely humbled to have this opportunity to bring this to live stages all across the world. As ardent fans, we’ve set out to be the tribute band that we ourselves would be clamoring to see time after time. We strive to leave no stone unturned for a well rounded experience covering Coldplay’s extensive body of work, ranging from Parachutes to Prospekt’s March. To put it simply, it’s 42’s goal to bring the greatest glimpse into the Coldplay experience and we hope to translate to our audiences the elation it gives us to play their amazing work.

So please come & share with us these very special songs in celebration of one of the greatest and most influential groups of our time!

 

Caanon Cox

The Rabbit Hole is thrilled to welcome Canaan Cox back to Charlotte! Don’t miss this amazing night of music!
Doors open at 8:00pm

Canaan Cox is truly a manifestation of the phrase “hard work pays off.” With a “rules are meant to be broken” attitude, this NC bred country star has taken Nashville by storm. Having only lived in music city for little over a year, he’s made more waves in the town than even he thought were possible.

“People kept saying this was a 10 year town – that lit a fire for me. It made me want to prove them wrong.” Cox is surely off to the races. His debut single “Lie” charted in the first 2 weeks on Music Row and became one of the Top 20 most added songs there.

Natalie Prass
Aug 11 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

8/11/18
Natalie Prass
Visulite Theatre

The songs were written, the band was ready, and the studio was booked. Fans and critics alike were eagerly awaiting the follow-up to Natalie Prass’s 2015 self-titled breakout album, a collection hailed by NPR as ‘a majestic debut,’ but perhaps no one was more eager for record number two than Prass herself. She’d waited what felt like a lifetime to release that first album and then toured the world relentlessly behind it, sharing bills with the likes of Fleet Foxes and The War on Drugs on her way to becoming one of the year’s most talked-about artists. By the time recording sessions were scheduled to begin, she was absolutely dying to launch the next chapter, which made what happened next all the more shocking: she scrapped the whole thing.
‘The record was ready to go, and then the election happened,’ explains Prass. ‘I was devastated. It made me question what it means to be a woman in America, whether any of the things I thought were getting better were actually improving, who I am and what I believe in. I knew I would be so upset with myself if I didn’t take the opportunity to say some of the things that meant so much to me, so I decided to rewrite the record. I needed to make an album that was going to get me out of my funk, one that would hopefully lift other people out of theirs, too, because that’s what music is all about.’
The result is ‘The Future And The Past,’ a stunning work of art and a powerful feminist statement from an artist who’s only just begun to tap into the full range of her considerable powers. Reuniting Prass with producer and long-time friend Matthew E. White, the album is at once celebratory and defiant, capturing all the joy, frustration, fear and hope inherent in modern womanhood as it synthesizes the influence of everything from vintage gospel and 80’s pop to 90’s R&B and Brazilian Tropicália. Prass displays a rare gift for transcending time and place in her songwriting, tapping into age-old struggles for autonomy and equality that resonate profoundly in the present.
Though she’d been honing her craft and paying her dues for years, Prass first emerged to international acclaim in 2015, when her debut record earned its rightfully rapturous reception. Rolling Stone swooned for the Virginia native’s ‘beguiling voice and refined taste,’ while Pitchfork praised her album as a ‘smoldering perspective on passionate romance,’ and The New Yorker simply called it ‘timeless.’ She appeared on the Martin Scorsese-helmed HBO series Vinyl, performed on the BBC’s Later With Jools Holland, and CBS This Morning, and racked up more than ten million streams on Spotify. Before long, she was headlining dates around the world and playing festival stages from Bonnaroo and Rock En Seine to End Of The Road and Forecastle.
Once touring for the album had wrapped up, Prass took a stab at writing in new cities with fresh faces, spending time in London, LA, and Nashville, but it only served to reinforce the feeling that she belonged back home in Richmond. There, she holed up with White for intensive creative sessions as she attempted to work through the difficult existential questions she found herself facing in a country that expected women to be seen and not heard.
‘I went over to his house every single day, and we’d work from 10am to 5pm straight just writing and listening and talking,’ she explains. ‘It was very therapeutic for me, and I think it actually helped Matt to understand my point of view as a woman, too.’
Recorded once again at White’s Spacebomb Studios, the album showcases both a new political depth to Prass’s songwriting and a bold willingness to follow her muse wherever it leads. While her debut was marked by elaborate horn and string arrangements, ‘The Future And The Past’ finds Prass stripping her songwriting back to its most essential elements. Groove reigns supreme as she channels Dionne Warwick and Janet Jackson and lets her dazzling vocals dance across funky instrumental arrangements. Album opener ‘Oh My’ sounds like a lost slice of 80’s gold, complete with off-kilter Talking Heads-esque guitar, but dig a little deeper and you’ll find a song that’s pure 2018 as Prass sings, ‘Seems like every day we’re losing when we choose to read the news.’ Losing’s not an option, though, and Prass makes it abundantly clear that women won’t even entertain the notion of moving backwards. On ‘Ain’t Nobody’ she confidently promises that there ‘ain’t nobody can take this from our hands,’ while the soulful, swaggering ‘Sisters’ plays out like a mission statement for the entire album, as Prass and a chorus of female backup singers proclaim, ‘I wanna say it loud / for all the ones held down / we gotta change the plan.’
‘I didn’t want to point any fingers, and I didn’t want to sound desperate or defeated,’ she explains. ‘I wanted to stay positive and joyful. The world’s obviously not perfect, but there’s nothing we can’t do if we love and support each other. It was really important to me that these songs make people feel that way.’
It’s a principle that guides Prass throughout the album, no matter her subject material. On ‘Short Court Style,’ she taps into Diana Ross disco and reflects on the bliss a healthy relationship can bring, while the hypnotic ‘Hot For The Mountain’ assures all the outcasts and misfits that they’re not alone, and the playful ‘Never Too Late’ conjures up a world where a wish upon a star can bring back lost love. Even in the album’s darker moments, like the Karen Carpenter-inspired ballad ‘Far From You’ or the cooing pop gem ‘Nothing To Say,’ Prass refuses to let go of her rebelliously optimistic streak. ‘I will never kneel when power is in fear and aimed upon me,’ she sings on the South American-influenced ‘Ship Go Down,’ adding ‘no no I am never drowning’ in a breathy delivery that’s light as a feather and tough as nails.
Ultimately, ‘The Future And The Past’ is a record that’s about neither of those things. Instead, it’s about womanhood and the modern world and the things we can do right this very moment to make them both better through love and support and camaraderie. The album may have been born out of deep doubt and disappointment, but it insists on faith and optimism, and it succeeds because Prass leads by example, embracing her femininity on her own indomitable terms. ‘Music’s supposed to make you feel better,’ she reflects, and in that respect alone, she’s created a genuine triumph.

The Sword
Aug 12 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
There’s an unspoken edict handed down through the ages when it comes to rock bands: there are no rules.

Nobody picks up a guitar to be constricted or oppressed. It’s all about feeling free artistically. Now, The Sword—John Cronise [vocals, guitar], Kyle Shutt [guitar], Bryan Richie [bass], and Santiago Vela III [drums]—cut out boundaries since day one. Their style never stood predicated on a trend or a template. They always create what feels right and let the results speak for themselves.

When it came time to record the group’s fifth full-length album, High Country [Razor & Tie], Cronise landed at something of a spiritual crossroads. Following the final tour for their critically acclaimed Apocryphon, he holed up in his North Carolina home and eventually began writing new songs. The material began to veer into a different space that at the time Cronise felt was somewhat outside of The Sword’s sphere.

“I didn’t even intend for the demos to be Sword songs,” he explains. “But then I realized that I had taken on a sort of limiting view of what The Sword was, and that wasn’t actually what I wanted it to be. I think the new album is more reflective of the music I listen to and where our heads are at collectively. With each of our albums, it’s become less about fury and bombast and more about trying to write good songs. We realized that our music can go wherever we want it to go. There’s no pre-determined course here now, and there never was.”

High Country became new territory for The Sword, and they began doing things differently. That approach included more attention to backing vocals and harmonies, implementing more synthesizers and percussion elements, and tuning to E-flat instead of all the way down to C. As a result, the guitars stand out as more vital and vibrant than ever.

“I felt like the low tuning had become more of a crutch than a tool,” he says. “It was all a matter of trying to keep things fresh, and not fall prey to habits or expectations. We wanted to break out of any classifications and just put out a good rock record.”

Inspired, the boys headed to Church House Recording Studio in Austin, TX to cut High Country with Adrian Quesada of Brownout and Grupo Fantasma producing, Stuart Sykes [The White Stripes] engineering, and J. Robbins mixing. Over the course of four weeks, they hammered out the album’s 15 tracks in the old converted church. Thematically though, Cronise’s head was still in North Carolina.

“There are a lot of lyrical themes that run throughout the album,” he explains. “I live out in the mountains, so nature really inspired the whole record. That’s a large part of the lyrics.”

The title track and first single “High Country” springs from a transfixing guitar melody into a sweeping refrain, illuminating the group’s inherent dynamics. Over those rolling riffs, the singer paints a thought-provoking topography.

“That was actually the first song I wrote that ended up going on the record,” he says. “The title can have quite a few meanings. Physically, it might mean mountains and literal high country, but it can also refer to a plane of being; a place of wisdom and enlightenment.”

“Empty Temples” opens with a psychedelic buzz that quickly ramps up into towering guitars and another robust vocal display evocative of rock’s golden age.

“It’s loose and swinging, but it has these epic moments,” says Cronise. “Lyrically, it’s about letting go of the past and moving on. You just have faith if you embrace change and be unafraid, and you’ll find where you need to go.”

The gathering storm of “Early Snow” eventually gives way to a rapturous horn section, another first for the band, while “Mist and Shadow” stirs up a haze of blues that’s instantly thunderous. “That song is based around riffs written by Bryan, which is a new thing for us. He contributed quite a bit of music to this album, and in many ways it’s our most collaborative work to date.”

Both “The Dreamthieves” and “Tears Like Diamonds” have titles inspired by the work of science fiction author Michael Moorcock, though Cronise insists the lyrics have lives of their own. “I’d prefer to let people interpret the songs how they want,” he says, “which is one reason the lyrics aren’t printed in the album sleeve this time. I think they’re pretty intelligible and accessible, and I didn’t want them to distract from the music.”

The Sword’s impact continues to expand. 2012’s Apocryphon debuted at #17 on the Billboard Top 200, marking their highest entry on the chart. Since first emerging with 2006’s Age of Winters, the group has been extolled by everyone from Rolling Stone and The Washington Post to Revolver and Decibel. Metallica personally chose them as support for a global tour, and they’ve earned high-profile syncs in movies including Jennifer’s Body and Jonas Åkerlund’s Horsemen. However, High Country is the band’s biggest, boldest, and brightest frontier.

“I want to make positive, uplifting music,” Cronise leaves off. “High Country has moments of darkness and thoughtfulness, as anything I write probably will. But at the end of the day I want to put smiles on people’s faces.”

Lori McKenna
Aug 16 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Home and the people who make it have captivated Lori McKenna for years. Over the last three decades, as she became a wife and mother of five, she has also emerged as one of the most respected, prolific singer-songwriters in popular music. Her 2016 release The Bird and the Rifle netted three Grammy nominations, along with Americana Music Association nods––all firsts for McKenna as an artist. Then, she made history: In 2016, she became the first woman ever to win the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year two years in a row thanks to co-writing Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” and penning Tim McGraw’s no. 1 “Humble and Kind” solo. Both songs also clinched back-to-back Grammy wins for Best Country Song. In 2017, she became the Academy of Country Music’s first female Songwriter of the Year. The Tree is her much-anticipated eleventh studio album. Produced by Dave Cobb, The Tree takes one of McKenna’s signature themes––family––and builds a tapestry of experiences she has lived, overheard, been told and dreamed up to create a stunning ode to life’s defining relationships.
