Formerly known as Manitoba, Daniel Snaith now goes by the name of Caribou, whose prolific psychedelic and electronic tunes can either move you get on the dance floor, or lounge around with a drink in your hand. His wide-ranging sounds--which have evolved from minimalist electronic beats to incorporating lyrics, as in the Polaris Music Prize-winning album Andorra--bring you to moments of relaxation, or to the depths of psychedelic ecstasy: in sum, perfect for listening on your own, or in a crowded concert.

After 1990s alt-rock monster Nirvana disbanded, Dave Grohl (the band's drummer) decided to strike out on a solo career. For the first studio release by this Grohl-helmed band dubbed the Foo Fighters, Grohl played all the instruments himself and laid down all the vocals, too. Slowly over time the Foo Fighters solidified until it became a complete rock group capable of dishing out some potent rock n' roll songs.
In exciting show out of Cirque du Soleil's ever-growing performance repertoire, the French-Canadian circus troupe has taken the Greek myth of Icarus and incorporated it into its act with a new twist. Many might be familiar with the story of Icarus flying too close to the sun, only to fall back to Earth. Cirque du Soleil has changed the story into a more hopeful one: instead of falling into the sea, Icarus falls into a lush magical forest where its denizens attempt to teach him how to fly once more. Like all Cirque du Soleil performances, acrobatics and feats of daring abound in a show that is sure to please and inspire audiences of all ages.
