Why the lack of posts the past few days, It’s because The Maroon Cafe is on the road this week. Our interns and other employees seem to be lacking on our posts, so I’m going to link you up with something to listen to during Memorial Day Weekend. Major Lazer and La Roux have hooked
Vampire Weekend releases visuals from there latest single “Holiday.” “Contra” there sophomoric effort is in stores now.
Singer Jovi Rockwell, has released visuals for her track “Keep It Real.” You guys might remember her from the Major Lazer album, Guns Fon’t Kill People… Lazers Do. You might also this classic beat as the Bucktown sample.
Rarely do we introduce an artists without any audio (in fact never) to back up our posts, but in this case we’ll make an exception. Meet Leah Mason apparently we know only so much, she’s from London, her myspace has very little info and she’s a mixture of Folk,Blues,Rock (as via facebook.) All we do

Already on an opening spot with Aubrey Graham…. you know the dude that they call Drake, so apparently it’s not only us that realize these Wesleyan University former attendees
Excuse us for the Lissie push we’ve got going on over here but this just had to get some sort of recognition. Lissie and Imogen Heaps little sister Ellie Goulding recently teamed up on stage for an unexpected collab effort of “Everywhere I Go.” Apparently the world is catching on faster than what we expected,
Hollywood Q has pegged Donnis as the next and upcoming rapper to blow up, and I kinda agree with him. Fool’s Gold familia, Donnis, has a busy day coming up next month. On June 22, the Atlanta Brave will simultaneously release his major label debut, The Fashionably Late EP, and a Clinton Sparks assisted mixtape
New York LA based band, Grouplove, formally known as Group, have recently released their debut EP which has made it’s way to the Cafe. Our favorite track off their 5 track EP is Gold Coast. Head over to their myspace page or official site to find out more about up and coming band. If you
