Greta Van Fleet, a band from Frankenmuth, Mich., hasn’t released its first full-length album yet, but still has generated enough buzz that its May 11 show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville was a quick sell-out.
According to a Rolling Stone feature in January, these guys “make huge, throwback, blues-riff-riding rock that often sounds preposterously, uncannily close to newly unearthed Led Zeppelin tracks” and “look, act and sound like they were grown in the lab of some classic-rock-loving mad scientist.”

Greta Van Fleet will be back in the area July 29, for the July 27-29 Panorama music festival at Randall’s Island in New York. Other artists who will perform over the three days include Janet Jackson, The Weeknd, The Killers, SZA, Migos, The XX, David Byrne, Gucci Mane, Father John Misty, Dua Lipa, Odesza, Fleet Foxes, St. Vincent, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chicano Batman and The War on Drugs.
