If You're In L.A., You Should See Was (Not Was)

That's right, "Was (Not Was)", probably most remembered for their hit "Walk The Dinosaur" back in the late 1980's, are back on the road. This is a rare and special event; last time I saw them at a sparsely attended show at L.A.'s House Of Blues circa 2004/5, they blew the roof off the place with their own funked-up tunes and closed with an incredible, 11 minute killer version of James Brown's "Cold Sweat."

Well, they're playing Valentine's Day (2/14 for the calendar impaired) at the Orpheum Theater in downtown L.A., with special guests Kris Kristofferson (!) and Brian Wilson. Yes, the famous "Beach Boys" genius Brian Wilson. I got tickets late and still landed near the front row, so good seats are probably still available, they're not that expensive and it promises to be a GREAT SHOW. Visit Ticketmaster and gets your tix now! (And for San Francisco fans, it looks like they're doing a show there the same week, too.)
