Listen to London-based band Bastille perform live at Radio City tonight. Their hit single “Pompeii” put their name on the map last year and they’ve shown no sign of stopping. After their debut album, “Bad Blood,” went to number one and became the most downloaded album of 2013, it seemed inevitable that this British foursome would soon hit the road and go on tour. Luckily they have and they’re bringing along Grizfolk to open tonight’s concert starting at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $35-$58.95.
