May 6 - Los Lobos, X, and Mariachi el Bronx - Blacklake Golf Resort. I've seen both X and Los Lobos more times than I can remember, going all the way back to the early 80's. Never had a bad show.
It has dawned on me with the way the Kings are playing, and with the unknown schedules for future rounds of the playoffs, my May and June concerts stand a real chance of getting farked with. But hell, it's not like when you buy concert tickets way in advance for May and June that you'd ever think the Kings might still be playing during those months!
Btw, pre-sale for A Place To Bury Strangers w/ This Will Destroy You here (Echoplex)
:: Dead Oceans
oh for serious. i was supposed to go to a hot water music show at the satellite with a friend later this month, but it fell through, which is for the better since i have no idea if the kings will be playing or not and i'd rather watch the game than stand and worry about how they're doing while i'm supposed to be rocking out.
^ I mostly agree. I have 5 shows total that may occur on Kings game dates if they continue their run
Roger Waters- May 19th
Spiritualized- May 20th
Spiritualized- May 22nd
The Beach Boys- June 2nd
A Place To Bury Strangers- June 7th
The exceptions- RW and Beach Boys shows will trump a Kings playoff game. The others I'll probably try to sell off. Hoping for the best. I am making sure to buy hard tickets only for anything else that comes up. Easier to move if needed.
Went to the Los Lobos/X/Mariachi el Bronx show yesterday. Lightly attended. That was unfortunate b/c X sounded just as fresh and powerful as they did back in 1982. Los Lobos were their usual spectacular selves, pulling out gems from their vast catalog left and right, segueing beautifully into a number of covers, letting their "jam band" flag fly for awhile. All in all a great day and great show.
Ya know, maybe it was just me. But Cinco de Mayo and weekend related festivities seemed very subdued this year this year.
Anyway, Florence and the Machine, w/ The Weeknd and Maccabees are coming to the Hollywood Bowl!
Oct 7 - Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA
Support - The Weeknd, The Maccabees
General Sale - May 14th
Flo's pretty awesome if you haven't seen her live. And I really enjoyed The Weeknd's set at Coachella.
