On-Sale Saturday: Bloc Party, Donavon Frankenreiter, More
Some good shows announced this week, highlighted by, as pictured, Bloc Party and OC's own Donavon Frankenreiter! Woop woop!
Bloc Party, Dec. 15 at the Grove of Anaheim On sale: Noon Saturday, Nov. 22 ($20) Not a lot of advance notice for this one, so definitely pounce on it when you can. Bloc Party just released their third album, Intimacy, late last month.
Donavon Frankenreiter, Feb. 12 at the Coach House On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 (price not available) Laguna Beach's king of laid back surf rock. Yay for mellowness! He also has a new album; Pass It Around, which was reviewed here. Chrisette Michele, Dec. 28 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 ($26.50) R&B artist on Def Jam; she's appeared on tracks with Jay-Z, The Roots, Nas and Ghostface Killah. Quite a list!
Pato Banton & The Mystic Roots Band, Jan. 3 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 ($17.50) I can't think about reggae any more without thinking about this sketch. But I'm sure this will be a fine show.
Marc Broussard, Jan. 15 at the House of Blues, Anaheim On sale: 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 ($17.50) As a young music writer in college, Marc Broussard was one of the first interviews I did. He was a nice dude! And he's kind of dreamy. What more could you want from a concert? Music or something? He does that too.
And, already on sale:
Smucker's Stars on Ice, Jan. 31 at the Honda Center, Anaheim $11-$137. That's quite a price range, but when you're talking about skating superstars like Sasha Cohen and Todd Eldredge, is there such a thing as too much? (Answer: Yes.)
