Concert news: Height, Good Charlotte, Odd Future

Height-420.jpgHeight will performing a homecoming show at the Hexagon on April 20.

The rapper's been on a long, 25-city tour for the past three months.

The auspiciously-timed show will be his last for a while, as he's leaving on an European tour shortly after.

He will be joined by Soul Cannon, Minor Second, G-Easy, and likely, Mickey Free and Emily Slaughter, who are regular members of the Height and Friends ensemble.  Height was profiled in February.

Another Maryland band announced a homecoming show of sorts Tuesday.

Waldorf's Good Charlotte will include Baltimore on their upcoming tour, which kicks off in late May in New Jersey.

They perform at Rams Head Live June 20. It hasn't been announced yet when tickets will go on sale.

Also coming soon to Rams Head: Scissor Sisters, who canceled their March show at the 9:30 club in DC, will play the venue June 9. And Matt & Kim, who played Rams Head just last year, will perform there again June 1. Tickets for both are already for sale at the venue's website.

Odd Future, the latest uber-hyped Tumblr group, will play Sonar May 19. No word yet when The Weeknd will start touring. Tickets, at $15, for the Sonar show are already on sale at the venue's website.

They'll also play the Rock and Roll Hotel in DC the night before. Tyler the Creator, one of the members of the collective, is releasing his first label album on XL Recordings a few days before on May 10. 

In other concert news, The Starscape Festival has updated their website, and added some new headliners to the already announced line-up. Among them? House DJ Donald Glaude and Baltimore's Uncle Jesse.

Britney Spears has found a replacement for Enrique Iglesias, who abruptly canceled plans for a joint tour last month.  She will instead tour with Nicki Minaj, who is coming off a joint tour with Lil Wayne. Tickets for the July 31 show, starting at $29, will go on sale April 16.

Live Nation announced this week that U2's 360 tour, which hits M&T Bank Stadium June 22, has become the most successful ever. Interestingly though, the promoter confirmed this week tickets for the Baltimore show are still available.
