Hi there! Any plans next Thursday, the 21st? No? If you’re in L.A., we have an idea… Virgin Megastore presents Third Thursday, a new FREE concert series, held in the courtyard at Hollywood & Highland. The shows are all ages and include art shows and refreshments, so it should be a pretty fun event. The 21st will have Irving (hooray!), Monsters Are Waiting, and The Oohlas on the stage, with art by Sage Vaughn, so please come out! Sponsors also include good oleIndie 103.1.
Speaking of artsy events, on 9/19, The Faraway Places are gracing us with a night at Spaceland entitled Psychotropic Earth, the proceeds of which will go towards the Natural Resources Defense Coalition and the Young Progressive Movement. Also playing are Lavender Diamond and The Moon Upstairs, with a lighting installation by Heavy Rainbow Siteshow. Groovy, man. Groovy.
In other Irving news, you may have noticed we have some new tour dates posted for next month and November! Hopefully they’ll be blazing through a town near you. Oranger will be rocking out in their hometown this month for a Big Star Tribute and a rock photography book release (with X’s John Doe!), so make sure you catch one of those nights if you’re up near ‘Frisco.
Not to be outdone by matters of distance and time zones, PINE*am have launched a podcastsure to buzz with deep thoughts and lively chatter in delightfully broken English. Be sure to check it out!
