And it starts, sometime in 2022, or at least that’s when you lose yourself for a minute or two and forget about life for a while. Somewhere in that mix is The Airborne Toxic Event.
Have a chat with one of their fans and they will tell you exactly what that opening line means. They are sincere, soulful, and most importantly, they are one hell of a live band.
The Airborne Toxic Event recently announced their North American tour dates in support of their landmark 2020 album, “Hollywood Park.” The tour starts tonight and lands in SoCal on April 29th for a sold-out show at The Observatory in San Diego before they head north on April 30th where they will play at The Greek Theatre.
For those not in the know, The Airborne Toxic Event first emerged on the scene in 2006. They are centered by soulful music with piercing vocals from lead singer Mikel Jollett; he wheels a sick guitar too. Adrian Rodriguez slaps the bass, while Steven Chen shreds on guitar and keys. Then Daren Taylor bangs the drum all day! Together, this band puts on one of the most entertaining shows you will ever see.
The band’s eponymous debut album featured their breakthrough hit single “Sometime Around Midnight.” It was an RIAA gold-certified, top five smash on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart, later ranked number one on iTunes’ Best of 2008: Alternative list.

They hit it big again in 2011 with “Changing,” and their fans have been in love with them ever since.
“Hollywood Park” is soulful as if these were songs from the key of life, and The Airborne Toxic Event has struck a chord with their fans again.
New songs “Hollywood Park,” “Carry Me,” “True” and their latest, “Faithless,” have captured hearts and souls yet again. These songs may not be as ruckus, but they are as soulful as any in recent memory.
If you want to be thoroughly entertained by meaningful and inspiring music, The Airborne Toxic Event may just might be for you. Mondo Cozmo will join them on the tour and shows are selling out.
