Tenacious D - July 23 @ The Pageant
  • Tenacious D - July 23 @ The Pageant

Every newly announced show this week! Comedy and music fans, rejoice: The D is coming to town. For the uninitiated, I'm referring to Tenacious D -- the two-man wonderband will play the Pageant on July 23 with The Sights. They also just released a new video yesterday; see it below. For fans of southern rap bangers: 8Ball, MJG and Bun B will play the Ambassador on April 7. We're pretty sure proper protocol for this event would be to get wasted on cough syrup before arrival, but don't quote us. Shock-rocker Alice Cooper will play the Pageant on June 16. Maybe get in the spirit a little and fill your mouth with blood capsules for effect, but please remember that it is not recommended that you swallow them. Mariachi El Bronx, Deer Tick, and Los Campesinos all have upcoming shows in town as well. Previews for these shows as well as this week's complete list follow:
