at Skyway Theatre

Anglo-Swedish rock band Alberta Cross will be stopping at the Skyway Theatre during their spring North American Headlining tour. This tour is in support of their self-titled album (Dine Alone Records) which has gotten nothing but good reviews so far.
Led by lead singer and guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee, the band has seemed to move to a new musical direction. It's a bit too hard to explain using words, so you better go check out the show!

Swedish metal kings Amon Amarth has announced a tour for this spring. These metal lords will be taking over the Varsity Theater on Tuesday, May 10th along with fellow Swedes Entombed A.D. and the American band Exmortus.
This tour is in support of Amon Amarth's tenth studio album Jomsviking which came out March 25th through Metal Blade Records.
Amon Amarth is known for their high energy shows and their trademark melodic, anthemic metal. They don't cross the pond that much, but when they do, they make it count!

After a brief tour in the UK with experimental collective Banana, Welsh singer/songwriter Cate Le Bon will be headlining the US in support of her latest release Crab Day, available now on Drag City Records.
We previously saw Le Bon in 2014 and wrote, “Despite her recent move to Los Angeles injecting some lightness into her music, her Welsh background seems to always belie a certain dourness to the songs and a perceived aloofness on stage; not that it’s a bad thing. Her deep throated vocals can move from a siren’s angelic lilt to a more chaotic, sometimes banshee wail in a moment, in a style that is all her own.”
Seattle’s Mega Bog to open.
