The Antlers • Chairlift

From the lo-fi bedroom recordings of singer/guitarist Peter Silberman to the electronic-minded aquatic soundscapes of their 2012 EP Undersea, The Antlers create music that keeps moving forward, expansive and entrancing. Chairlift’s kaleidoscopic pop layers tones from manic to brooding, from pastoral to anthemic.

Sufjan Stevens • Bryce Dessner • Nico Muhly
On Sale: January 12 @ 10am | Purchase Tickets:http://laphil.com/Planetarium
With the West Coast premiere of Planetarium, The National’s Bryce Dessner, singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens, and composer Nico Muhly come together to consider the cosmos. For the first half, a string quartet performs each artist’s classically informed compositions. In the second half, Stevens’ voice anchors a planet-by-planet song cycle that melds the collaborators’ distinct creative contributions into a harmonic whole. The cycle unfolds against the backdrop of a giant orb that morphs to reflect the characteristics of the sphere being celebrated.
