As you know The National will be touring out here in Southern California this week, and thanks to my lovely wife, she surprised me with tickets for this Friday at the Wiltern! I’m pretty excited to see them play live since I missed them when they were touring for the album Boxer. Here’s one of my favorites from that album.
Another concert on the horizon will be the Shout Out Louds and they’re playing at The Glasshouse in Pomona on Monday the 24th. The tickets are $20 at the door, but I will unfortunately miss them this time around. If you have a chance to see them, or need some cheering up since LOST will air its final show the night before, then I would highly recommend seeing this band. I saw them play in Seattle and I remembered them putting on a pretty good show. Here’s some vids to pass the time.
One show that I definitely want to go see is Stars. My friend introduced me to this band not too long ago and I’m glad he did. They’re playing at The Troubadour on June 22nd and 23rd. They just released their single called “Fixed” and their next album The Five Ghosts will be available June 22nd. I guess I have to download their album before the show that night!
Hopefully you get a chance to see anyone of these bands. Cheers!
