Get ready for Santigold, New Order, Umphrey’s McGee and more

Philly-bred Santi White—better known as the front woman of the eclectic indie dance project, Santigold—dances her way into the Foundry April 2. Last time she was here, her supporting slot for indie rocking Brits Bloc Party at Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool turned into a headlining one thanks to the rain. White is hitting the road in support of her forthcoming album, 99¢, which is set to release at the end of this month. We hope to hear songs from the new body of work as well old favorites such as the bumpin’ “Shove It.”

New season; New Order. The new wave greats are slated to perform at The Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan March 21 to promote its latest effort, Music Complete. Supporting acts have yet to be announced, but if they’re as great as Johnny Marr (who opened the last NO show in April 2013) we’ll be groovin’ with glee. Expect to hear cuts from the new LP as well as some bona fide classics such as “Blue Monday” and “Temptation.” Leave the bad haircuts at home.

Progressive rockers Umphrey’s McGee returns to Brooklyn Bowl for a two-night engagement May 6 and May 7. The weekend begins with UMBowl—a set that consists of “crowd-sourced improvisation,” which basically means they’re playing an all-request set where you vote on the next song via ballots. The following evening, the sextet will present a two-set show, because why not?

It may be a little longer than “One Week” since you heard the Barenaked Ladies’ 1998 smash, but you can hear the Canadian rockers play it loud at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center July 22. The four-piece has released 14 albums in its 27-year career, and you can get yourself a huge helping of them just in time for the summer.
