KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD (2ND RED ROCKS DATE)
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard’s latest album in their sprawling discography is this year’s thrash-inspired Infest The Rats Nest, and the band recently announced a special 2020 show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater on 5/6, which will be a “three hour marathon set of music spanning each of their 15 albums.” Due to demand, they’ve added a second Red Rocks show on 5/5, which, according to the band, will have an entirely different setlist with no repeats from night one. Tickets for the second date go on sale Saturday (10/23) at 12 AM EST/10 AM MST, and these shows follow another career-spanning show at LA’s Greek Theater on 4/18.
SHANNON and THE CLAMS
Shannon and The Clams spent most of the fall opening for Greta Van Fleet, and they’ll also wrap up a run with The Black Keys this weekend, but they’ve just announced some headlining shows for 2020. Beginning in April, the band will trek across the Southeast next spring, with shows in Nashville, North Charleston, Durham, Gainesville, Athens, Knoxville, and more. Find all dates here.
Synthy goth outfit Choir Boy toured with Ceremony earlier this year, and now they’ve got a few headlining shows scheduled next month on the West Coast. They’ll first play LA’s Roxy Theatre on 12/12, followed by San Diego’s The Casbah on 12/13, and Las Vegas’ The Griffin on 12/14. These are the band’s only upcoming dates at the moment. They’ve got a new album on the way but while you wait for that, you can listen to recent single “Nites Like This”:
Bob Dylan’s ten-show run at NYC’s Beacon Theatre kicks off tomorrow (11/23) and while that show is all but sold out, you can still get tickets for November 24, 26, 27, 29, and 30 & December 2, 3, 5 and 6.
