Friday, January 11th: MASSIVE ATTACK

One of the most innovative and influential groups of their generation, Massive Attack's hypnotic sound -- a darkly sensual and cinematic fusion of hip-hop rhythms, soulful melodies, dub grooves, and choice samples – paved the way for many acclaimed dance and rock artists like Portishead, Beth Orton, Radiohead, TV on the Radio, and Tricky, a Massive Attack alumnus.

Their 5 studio albums have been met with critical praise, winning awards around the world, and selling over 11 million copies worldwide.

Active for nearly 30 years, they have collaborated with many influential artists, including Madonna, Neneh Cherry, Damon Albarn, the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser, and Sinead O’Connor.
