Get out. Two simple words. This week let me make it even simpler , U2, L7, JD.
Bono’s bike accident, Larry Mullins Jr. father passing away, The Edge falling off the stage on the opening show and now the death of their longtime tour manager, Dennis Sheehan, it has been an extremely rocky road for this band of late. Still, the power U2 is to turn these negatives into powerful, emotionally charged performances. I expect the band to be at the top of their game for these next string of shows. It’s something you should not miss.
It’s been 16 years since grunge rockers L7 last released an album. It fact, it’s been so long I’m still calling them grunge rockers. And as there website says “Your support, prayers, pleads, demands, and harassment here on this page have worked! The Original Line-up of L7 ARE REUNITING! (and it feels so good). WOO HOO!” Their show at The Echo tonight may be sold out but fear not as they are returning in July to play The Fonda for two nights. WOO-HOO!
JD McPherson‘s sound is instantly recognizable and yet his voice adds in urgency to the music and it’s easy to see why Robert Plant has him opening up for his shows. Before he opens for Plant at the Greek Theatre on Tuesday you can see him play a free show at Amoeba on Monday. Let the good times roll, indeed!
