Incoming: Tiger Army, Tim & Eric, Loggins & Messina at the Grove of Anaheim
Northern California-bred psychobilly and two duos that have proper names linked by an ampersand (and nothing else) in common: all coming to the Grove of Anaheim!
LA-by-way-of-Berkeley psychobilly trio Tiger Army (say it like this: Tigerrrrrrrr Arrrrrrrrrmyyyyyyy) will be returning to the Grove for their "Octoberflame 2009" (which includes a stop at the Wiltern on Oct. 23). Dates are Oct. 30 and Oct. 31--hey, that's Halloween! On sale tomorrow (Friday, June 5) at 10 a.m., tickets are $25/$27.50. LA horror-punkers 45 Grave open on the 30th, Milwaukee Wildmen on All Hollow's Eve. (I hear they can get pretty wild.)
Adult Swim's delightfully surreal Tim & Eric, who I've written lovingly about here before, played the Glass House in January but are now coming to Orange County proper--July 26 at, yup, the Grove. Tickets are $25-$30 and go on sale this Saturday at noon. At the Glass House show, Dr. Steve Brule himself (aka John C. Reilly) made a surprise appearance, so who knows what fun might ensue this time. Yay!
The other duo coming? Loggins & Messina, of course! It's their first tour together in like, 30 years? Wowzers. That's hittin' the G of A on Sept. 30; $70-$85 tickets go on sale Saturday at noon.
