The Grammy-winning trio Train freights a cargo of breezy melodies and poignant jams, satiating legions of fans on the California 37 tour 2013. With intrinsically catchy beats and crossover appeal, Train’s euphonic anthems bridge the gap between the hearts and brains of millions. Best known for Grammy-magnet singles such as “Hey, Soul Sister,” “Drops of Jupiter,” and “Calling All Angels,” Train’s grooves, combined with Patrick Monahan’s lilting vocals, stick in ears like relentless peanut butter. During the gripping live show, devotees can expect sing-alongs from Train’s catalog of smashes and cochleae candy from the band’s latest album, California 37. Train even tickles diehard fans’ other senses with its own wine and chocolate brand, the Save Me, San Francisco Wine Co., which features song-based libations such as the Soul Sister pinot noir and the Drops of Jupiter red wine, fermented from astronaut tears.<p> If there were an Irish word for juggernaut, it still wouldn’t describe the staggering success of Dublin’s The Script. From scrappy beginnings playing pubs to toppling the UK charts and being handpicked by U2 and Paul McCartney to open sold-out stadium shows, the earnest trio hasn’t let fame go to its three handsome heads. Riding shotgun on the California 37 tour, The Script envelopes audiences with its “Celtic soul” sound—a drift of poignant lyricism, shimmering guitars and soulful harmonies that pirouette atop hip-hop beats—as it touts its third album, #3, featuring the platinum-selling will.i.am collaboration “Hall of Fame.”<p> Train’s old touring buddy Gavin DeGraw croons artfully penned lyrics with an acoustic pop sensibility. Exploding onto the scene as the singer-songwriter behind One Tree Hill’s theme song, “I Don’t Want to Be,” DeGraw crafts albums that cement him to the pop charts time and time again. On his latest album, Sweeter, Gavin expands his musical wardrobe, covering the heart on his sleeve with a jacket of swagger in his funkiest batch of songs to date.<p> Train—“Drops of Jupiter” (Acoustic)

About Depeche Mode
According to Q magazine, the British music journal more prone to scrutiny than hyperbole, Depeche Mode is not only “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known,” they’re also one of the “50 Bands That Changed the World.” Kind words indeed for the group that once proclaimed words to be “very unnecessary” in their global hit “Enjoy the Silence.” Although critical focus tends to trumpet their murky synthesizers and machinist beats, the music of Depeche Mode is anti-robotic. It’s absolutely humanist, from the sing-along exuberance of “People Are People” to the indelible surf-guitar lure of “Personal Jesus.” After 30 years and over 100 million albums sold throughout the globe, the core group of singer Dave Gahan, keyboardist and bassist Andy Fletcher, and chief songwriter, guitarist, and synth guru Martin Gore continues to fuel one of pop music’s most well-oiled machines.
Per the name of their 13th studio album, Delta Machine, the band adds a bit more blues to their sound. Also sure to please fans is the return of Flood, who produced Depeche Mode masterworks such as Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion, and stepped back into the sound-booth to mix the new record. Looking downright dapper with a voice as full as his hair, Dave Gahan commands the stage though new songs and greatest hits in a set that changes nightly and will leave audiences “surprised and delighted,” according to Andy Fletcher in a recent NPR interview.
