The GRAMMY Gig of a Lifetime Concert, presented by Surface, will feature a headlining performance from one of the biggest breakout bands of 2013 - The Neighbourhood. In addition, the winning band of the GRAMMY Gig of a Lifetime program on CBS.com will open the show, which all proceeds of tickets sales benefit the GRAMMY Museum's Education Initiatives.
Los Angeles-based alt-rock five-piece The Neighbourhood – Jesse Rutherford (vocals), Jeremy Freedman (guitar), Zach Abels (guitar), Mikey Margott (bass) and Bryan Sammis (drums) – got their start as friends playing music together and launched the band in 2011. The Neighbourhood dropped their full-length debut album, I Love You, on Columbia Records in April 2013 to critical acclaim. Their single, “Sweater Weather,” rocketed to #1 on Billboard's Alternative Chart and is RIAA-certified platinum. Currently, The Neighbourhood is on tour, with upcoming dates across the United Kingdom.
