Coming this May, Jukebox the Ghost and X Ambassadors will be on tour in Minnesota. Jukebox the Ghost will be performing at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis on May 8 and X Ambassadors will be performing at the Myth in Maplewood on May 1.

Jukebox the Ghost is an indie pop rock band, with electric synth beats and intricate guitar solos. The band just released their fifth studio album, “Off to the Races” featuring the singles “Everybody’s Lonely” and “Jumpstarted.” The band is heavily influenced by the classic rock band Queen and this can be seen especially in tracks such as “Jumpstarted” and “Girl.”

The band is a three-piece and according to their website, they describe “Off to the Races” as “giddy,” “vibrant,” and “bombastic.” They have also been making and producing music for about 10 years and have played over 1,000 shows.

On May 8, the band will feature special guest the Greeting Committee. The Greeting Committee can be described as an indie rock band with sultry vocals and mellow guitar and bass solos.

X Ambassadors are best known for their hit singles, “Unsteady” and “Renegades.” The indie rock band released their debut “VHS” in 2015 and will be releasing their new album, “Joyful” this spring. They have already released two singles from “Joyful,” “Joyful” and “Don’t Stay.” The band also collaborated with Machine Gun Kelly and Bebe Rexha for the single “Home,” which was featured in the Netflix Original, Bright.

On May 1, X Ambassadors will be preforming alongside the artists Jacob Banks, an English singer-songwriter.
