Rock The Weekend 9/28/12-9/30/12

FRIDAY 9/28

.38 Special

Where: Pomona Fairplex (L.A. County Fair)

This Friday the L.A. County Fair is going to get a heavy dose of some classic southern rock. .38 Special, the group that taught obsessive romantics to “Hold On Loosely,” is headed to the Pomona Fairplex. Take advantage of the southern hospitality and don’t miss this band rocking the main stage.

SATURDAY 9/29

The Go-Gos

Where: Hollywood Bowl

When it comes to The Go-Go’s, no one can deny it- they’ve got the beat. The all-American, all-female rock band is coming to Los Angeles to revisit the best of the 80’s this Saturday. Grab your best legwarmers and head to the Hollywood Bowl to catch this fun pop-rock quintet.

Train with Mat Kearney and Andy Grammer

Where: Nokia Theater

The band that exploded onto the scene in 1998 with their mega-hit, “Meet Virginia,” will be playing at the Nokia Theater alongside two other popular groups with a Train-like feel this weekend. For the price of one ticket you’ll get to see three bands this Saturday.

Rise Against

Where: Honda Center, Anaheim

If you like your music with a bit more edge, and you don’t mind a drive, you won’t want to miss seeing Rise Against at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Sure, the lead singer may be a little older now and focused on his fatherly duties, but make no mistake- this punk group definitely still knows how to put on a show.

SUNDAY 9/30

Wilco

Where: Hollywood Bowl

This Sunday the Hollywood Bowl is hosting the twangy alternative rock band, Wilco. Mixing the guitar-strumming sounds of country with melodic rock beats, this group is sure to have the fans happily bobbing their heads to tunes like, “California Stars.”
