Where to Par-Tay on Saturday 9/9/06

Willie, Willie, Willie
Saturday 9/9/06
Willie Nelson @ Hollywood Bowl ($15-21) – This is where I plan to par-tay. The good tickets are sold out, but you should still go. Where do you start with Willie? He’s a legend that hippies and rednecks love. He’s written a lot of great hit songs, but if you’re not sure where you stand with him, pick up Red Headed Stranger. It’s a great concept album. You can’t really go wrong with Yesterday’s Wine, Shotgun Willie or Phases and Stages either. He (or the IRS) probably makes the most publishing money off of Patsy Cline’s version of “Crazy.” Check out this item at his store.

Also appearing:
Vashti Bunyan / Nobody & the Mystic Chords of Memory @ the Echo ($17 adv / $20 dos) – For the folk music fans.
Apollo Sunshine @ Troubadour ($12 adv / $14 dos) – Download “I Was on the Moon
Japanese New Music Festival IV @ the Smell ($8) – Weird psychedelic Japanese bands including Acid Mothers Temple.
Husky Rescue / Judah Johnson @ Spaceland ($10)
Feist / The Long Winters @ Avalon ($22)
