Joanna Newsom 2010 Tour Dates:
Saturday, 11/06 – Tucson, AZ @ Rialto Theatre
Sunday, 11/07 – Phoenix, AZ @ Orpheum Theatre
Hmm, isn't there supposed to be a good Tucson show on the seventh?
I figured it would be easy. Another Calexico dio de los muertos thing.
*FAXMAN CURRENTLY PUTTING ALL PLANS ON HOLD*
I think I'm going to tell my parents to go to the Orpheum show.
Dale is telling us that Calexico will soon be announcing that their epic day of the dead show 'dio de los muertos' will be on the same weekend which should allow for a face melting weekend of music down in Tucson as well as the day of the dead parade. Joanna on Saturday and parade and Calexico show on Sunday at the historic Rialto Theater.
It's supposed to be "better" than the show last year. I should probably go. I've lived in Tucson for the longest time and I still haven't seen them.
Better? Crazy. There are a bunch of pictures I took from last year in the Calexico thread. It was awesome. Tons of decorations and pinatas throughout the venue, hanging ribbon eveyrwhere, confetti and they opened the show with a mock funeral procession with a coffin and all. They also were wearing dark makeup. That was the last time I saw Calexico as well so this is definitely going to be a great weekend in Tucson. My plan is get tickets to both of these shows and maybe crash at the Congress Hotel on Saturday night. If anyone else is interested in such a weekend, let me know and we can split a room and drive down.
How far of a drive is Tucson from Phoenix? My sister just started at ASU and I did promise I would go visit her. This seems like the perfect excuse, but that Saturday date works better for my schedule...
It hurts that I'll be in AZ that weekend and NOT going to see Joanna Newsom. (I would have to abandon the husband at the hotel, as he cannot stand her.) If you guys get "Emily" or "Cosmia" and Dallas does not, I will weep.
My name is Becca. Hi.
That's cool Gribbz. I will definitely keep that in mind and let you know once tickets and such are secured!
Judging by the fact that you haven't bothered to send in your RSVP, it appears that's what you'll be doing....
Also, you can stop at the Ostrich Farm and take hispter pics with giant birds.
I'm also trying to picture Matt's studio filled with air mattresses.
Mother fuckin' sleepover yall.
EDIT: I might actually be out of town for this. Mehhh.
