Machine Gun Kelly 

When: Sun., Dec. 21, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $19
Last year's Black Flag might be some of Machine Gun Kelly's best work to date. It shows so much potential and suggests MGK could be a socially conscious artist who supports the community and can mix one hell of a hook. The last song off Black Flag, "Dark Side Of The Moon," is an intensely lyrical song that follows the life of Tommy, who has an abusive father; Tommy eventually takes that hate in his life to his high school with a gun in his hand. Likewise, "Swing Life Away," which samples a Rise Against song, has a solid message about how MGK has matured over the years. Even "Mind of a Stoner" isn't completely without substance as Wiz Khalifa joins the track's catchy chorus. With a new studio album looming on the horizon, expect to hear some new tracks at tonight's show, a warm-up of sorts for his NYE concert. (William Hoffman)
