Little Big Town @ Schottenstein Center in Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 15 – “Not only did Little Big Town put on a great concert, but they were wonderfully complemented by both Midland and Kacey Musgraves.” – Alex Andrews / The Lantern

Wyclef Jean w/ the

Declan McKenna @ Jammin’ Java in Vienna, Va., Feb. 14 – “Because he only has one studio album out, the concert was only about an hour long. However, the brevity was to be expected, and McKenna made up for the show’s length with over-the-top energy.” – Julia Yaeger / The Hoya

Børns @ The Anthem in Washington, D.C., Feb. 13 – “Børns absolutely delivered skill and recording-like voice quality. However, live shows should be a more passionate affair with new interpretations. The otherworldly quality of his music deserved a spectacle and performance worthy of its electricity, which Børns sadly did not deliver..” – Kyra DiMarco / The Hoya

Vista Kicks @ Moonlight Lounge in Albuquerque, N.M., Feb. 17 – “The audience was a sparse crowd of overtly drunk people, constantly talking over the band. Vista Kicks performed as if they were headlining Coachella and paid no mind to the awful, at times disrespectful, crowd.” – Colton Newman / Daily Lobo
