If you’re looking for a big holiday concert with talented and trailblazing bands, 94.7’s Electric Christmas is where it’s at. Our local alt rock radio station will be packing the Sleep Train Arena with some of this year’s hottest alt acts, including Capital Cities, whose single “Safe and Sound” has been dominating even the Top 40s stations despite the LA-based duo being still firmly in the indie category. Also performing is Grouplove, whose debut album was so charged with youthful energy that years later I still have it on repeat in my car stereo. Rounding out the list are Alt-J (check out their undeniably catchy song “Breezeblocks”), Cage the Elephant, The Features and MS MR. For more information, click here.
