This is very short notice, but New Classic LA is back, and we’ll kick it off with news that AYS is playing a free show at Royce Hall tonight at 7. All of the info is here:
In rather important news for the site, I finally figured out a good way to do concert listings. It might look the same to you, but will be a zillion times easier for me to keep up to date. So let’s do this thing, round two.
You read it right, folks. The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is premiering a new piece by Gabriel Kahane on Saturday and Sunday at the Alex Theatre and Royce Hall (and performing Ives’ Three Places in New England – YES), and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away. To enter, just retweet the following tweet (yes, you have to be on Twitter):
The winner will be picked at random on Friday at 11 AM. Cool?
I am discovering that as soon as you’ve got anything resembling a news blog, people start asking you to review their concerts. This is totally awesome, but, as luck would have it, I’m a busy guy. I’d love to attend and review every concert in town, but there are indeed conflicts in life.
That said, I’d love to have a few more people writing for this site. If you think you can write, and are interested in getting some free tickets and maybe free CDs or whatnot, drop me a line and we’ll work something out.
As always, there are quite a few concerts over on the concert listing page. If you’d like to review one of them in particular, mention that in your message too.
