Music Scene: Mayday and other bands playing in the area from Oct. 21–27
You might know ¡Mayday! from its single “Groundhog Day.”
Released a decade ago, the song features CeeLo Green and DJ Craze. The video got more than 2 million views in less than two days on YouTube and later was featured on the HBO show “Entourage.”
Other songs by ¡Mayday! have been used in video games and in the ABC Family show, “Lincoln Heights.”
See the Miami-based band for yourself at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St. Tickets to the show cost $15 to $20.
“¡Mayday!‘s distinctive fusion of urban and alt. rock is pushing the boundaries of music as they flex their muscles in areas of funk that hip-hop has yet to explore,” says the band bio posted at mesatheater.com.
The six-man band has appeared in three of Lil Wayne’s music videos (“Get A Life,” “Da Da Da,” and “On Fire”), and indie rapper Tech N9ne (no stranger to Mesa Theater’s stage) signed ¡Mayday! to his Strange Music label.
“The band completed two US Strange Music tours, including the record breaking 90 shows in 99 days Hostile Takeover tour with Tech and Machine Gun Kelly,” the bio says.
¡Mayday! will be joined by guests Web Three and Joseph Rose for the Mesa Theater concert, which is on the Space Cadet Tour.
