London-based Bloc Party released first studio album, Silent Alarm, in 2005, which made it to No. 3 on the British album chart and broke into the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Comprised of lead singer Kele Okereke, guitarist Russell Lissack, bassist Gordon Moakes and drummer Matt Tong, the band has named The Cure and Radiohead as influencers. After being nominated for numerous NME awards, Bloc Party continues to develop unique sounds with upcoming album, Four, scheduled for release on August 20.

NME’s 2008 Breakthrough Artist, Santigold, debuted her first studio album, Santogold, to rave reviews with hit “L.E.S. Artistes” earning the number two spot on Rolling Stone’s 2008 Singles of the Year list. Hailing from Philadelphia, Santigold, also known as Santi White, has collaborated with artists such as Lily Allen, Diplo, Christina Aguilera, N.E.R.D.’s Pharrell Williams and more, as well as opened for acts like M.I.A., Björk, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys. Her most recent album, Master of My Make-Believe, was released in May of this year and will undoubtedly continue to make her one of the most in-demand artists of her kind.

Next up as part of The Cosmopolitan’s summer concert series is Jane’s Addiction on Friday, September 7 and The Offspring on Saturday, October 6, both at Boulevard Pool.
