Stephen Lynch @ The Wiltern
Don’t miss comedic powerhouse Stephen Lynch this Friday, March 1, 2009 at The Wiltern in downtown L.A. This hilariously funny singer/songwriter is known for his over-the-top humor and disregard for the politically correct. With his acoustic guitar, and a barrage of songs like the side-splitting, “Medieval Bush” or the homo-tastic anthem “If I Were Gay” Lynch keeps the comedy coming all night long, and never misses a note. Tickets start at $29.50 and can be purchased at Livenation.com or the day of at The Wiltern box office. Doors open at 8:00 pm.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased on Ticketmaster.com or at the Fonda box office. Doors open at 8:00 pm.
Halifax at The Knitting Factory’s Front Room
Thousand Oaks, California’s own Halifax will be playing the Knitting Factory’s front room Thursday, May 14. Since the release of their debut in 2003, Halifax has emerged as a pop-punk force to be reckoned with. The band’s ability to combine straightforward lyrics with an almost chaotic intensity makes for one hell of a live show that should not be missed. Tickets are only $10 in advance, and $12 the day of. Doors open at 7:30 pm.
See you at the show!
