Rilo Kiley and Lupe Fiasco Woodies
Perennial college favorites Rilo Kiley are riding high off their recent breakout release "Under the Blacklight," and Lupe Fiasco is mounting an attack on the college charts with his brand new, red hot single, "Superstar." These acts will take the stage tonight at New York's Roseland Ballroom along with Tokyo Police Club, The Academy Is… and Spank Rock to deliver knockout live performances to a crowd packed full of college students and their favorite emerging artists.
