pluuto grammy museum

Pluuto will appear on March 31 at The GRAMMY Museum’s next edition of “The Drop.” Tickets are $15 for the performance and discussion at the museum’s Clive Davis Theater. The show starts at 8 p.m.

The band Pluuto incorporates many sounds—psychedelia, progressive rock, jazz, electronica and rock ‘n’ roll, namely. But what could sound like a crazy mess sounds revelatory on tracks like “Alice in Wonderland,” a song that will appear on their upcoming first EP, due March 31.

The L.A.-based group consists of Elmo Lovano (drums), Sergio Flores (saxophone/flute), Nick Maybury (guitar) and Kristian Attard (bass). Maybury originally formed the group to work on material he’d written after the group members met at Lovano’s Camerata (a weekly art and music event in Hollywood).

Each member has an impressive resume: Lovano has played with Christina Perri and Skrillex; Flores has played with The Faceless, Redfoo and Zedd, and is none other than the viral video star Sexy Sax Man; Maybury has worked with Michelle Branch, Cherie Currie (The Runaways), Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction), LP and others; and Attard with Heart, Jason Mraz and Meghan Trainor. Together, the band explores unusual arrangements, improvisation, dynamics and programming to create their hybrid sound.

ok go hungry ghosts lpOK Go will celebrate the release of their latest album, Hungry Ghosts, with an interview and performance at The Clive Davis Theater. Tickets are $15, and you can buy them here.

The Chicago-bred band, now Angelenos, first came to prominence with their single “Get Over It” and the band’s accompanying, self-titled album in 2002. After that, the power-pop band distinguished itself with its funny, convoluted and massively populated music videos, like the treadmill moves of “Here it Goes Again” (from Oh No) and the Rube Goldberg machine of “This Too Shall Pass” (from Of the Blue Colour of the Sky). Their latest record, Hungry Ghosts, is out now, with production work by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT) and Tony Hoffer (Beck, Phoenix, Foster the People).

Austin’s Spoon will join the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCare’s Vice President Scott Goldman for a discussion about their latest album, They Want My Soul. The album is perhaps their most critically and commercially successful album yet, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard Charts on the strength of positive reviews and their catchy first single, “Do You.”
