Read Music Now now (and read it later too)

The Daily Bulletin’s fabulous lineup of blogs, most of them with “Now” in the name, has just added Music Now.

This blog will round up concert listings in the 909 and present other material as well. A bunch of us music obsessives in the Bulletin newsroom will contribute, including yours truly.

I kicked things off by posting an introduction and the first concert listings for Pomona’s Fox Theater.

Check out Music Now at www.insidesocal.com/musicnow.

Have you noticed my blog’s home page (which you’re looking at) has links over to the right for the Bulletin’s “Now” news blogs? That’s a recent addition, long in coming, and welcome.

“Now” this, “Now” that…let’s just hope no one decides this blog should be renamed David Allen Now. And imagine if Joe Blackstock did a local history blog: Our Past Now. The mind reels.

    I’m looking forward to the music blog… there’s always musical events going on downtown, not only the Glass House (a wonderful worldclass venue) but also Characters, Angelo’s, Joey’s and the Locust Lounge. (Plus a few other venues that have shows irregularly, like the Glass House Records store.) There is usually a free band show at the Farmer’s Market. It’s fantastic that we’ll be adding the Fox to the list. I’m really looking forward to catching my first show there.

    Great show at the Glass House tonight. I have no idea if it’s sold out yet or not but it’s certainly worth a try to get tickets. Headliner is The Plain White T’s, with Verera and Danger Radio as openers. Both good solid bands.

    The Plain White T’s have six albums to their credit and a solid fan base for their (dare I say it?) classic rock sound. They would have been a huge hit in the ’60s and ’70s so who could begrudge them their smash out hits these days. Check out their myspace page, listen to cuts from their “Big Bad World” CD and go catch their show. The next time around I’m certainly they’ll be playing (if we are lucky enough to see them out here again) at The Fox (maybe for a couple of days).
