reggae, pop, acoustic, 9 p.m.

Feel-good hip-hop duo Aer, a.k.a. David von Mering and Carter Schultz, blend rap, reggae, pop, and indie rock. Not surprisingly, the band’s lyrics center on gettin’ high, makin’ music, and just having a good time. Before Aer released their albums, 2011’s What You Need and 2012’s The Bright Side, they were dropping full-length mixed tapes. “We started out as a rock band when we were 16 and juniors in high school,” says Mering. “After that, Carter was in Costa Rica for six months, and I would send him beats I had made that he would sing over.” These days, Mering and Schultz have been touring with big names like Macklemore + Ryan Lewis. “It was one of the cooler moments of our career,” says Schultz. And there are more collabs in the future. “We’re going to make a lot of music videos and do a huge tour with some big names this summer, but we aren’t allowed to talk about it yet,” says Mering. —Kalyn Oyer SATURDAY
