Dates, Dates & More Dates …
Look for new dates for Jason Boland & The Stragglers in TX, OK, KS and AR; Marc Cohn heads to VA, PA and WV during the last week of January and Locash Cowboys will play on Pat Dailey's home turf of Put-In-Bay, OH, next summer.
We also updated the Vegas market with new listings for Jay Leno, Kevin James and Ray Romano.
Today was a hodgepodge of new data, a little of this, a little of that. We posted info on the "Stagecoach" country music festival in Indio as well as the "Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival." We started the day with 50 Cent's European tour, new dates for Reel Big Fish, Acid Mother's Temple, Electric Six and later started filling in schedules for Gary Pfaff, Flogging Molly, Greg Brown, I Am The Avalanche, Jimmy Eat World, National Product, Paramore, Sonny Landreth, The Greyboy Allstars, Three Days Grace plus more bands and artists than even we can remember (Must have been that midday staff meeting / lunch / guzzle-a-thon down at the Dew Drop Inn).
And not it's time to wrap up our data operations for the week and send our tour specialists home for a little rest, recreation and debauchery. You have a yourself a good weekend, and we'll count on you brightening up our little corner of the Web when we land back here on Monday. Happy trails!
