It may be a little uncooth of us–when are we not uncooth, really–but we’re willing to bet you’ve never met Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page before. Or U2‘s The Edge. Or Jack White of The White Stripes and The Raconteurs. (It’s okay. Neither have we.) Consider Friday night’s premiere of It Might Get Loud at The Moxie an opportunity to get up close and personal with all three at the same time–something that had never happened before the documentary’s filming–all without leaving the comfort of your theater seat or having to do pesky things such as be introduced to the men first. The cost to get in if you’re an adult is $8… unless you win two tickets through our next giveaway, which is tonight at 5 p.m. on our Twitter feed. Be the first to answer the question correctly and you’re in the door for zero dollars. By the end of the night, you’ll know more about three of the most recognized guitarists in music than anyone not in the theater with you. It’s not “Hello, my name is The Edge, and you are…” but it’s pretty sweet nonetheless. Just try to remember not to act overly casual when you do meet them. Yo, Jack! What up, Jack! Long time, no talk, broseph!

Today marks the opportunity for Springfieldians (and those up for traveling to Springfield) to get first dibs on tickets to see rock ‘n’ roll icon Bob Dylan at The Shrine Mosque on Sunday, October 25. They’re $46 for general seating and are available only through the Shrine Mosque box office at 800-293-5949 or online at MetroTix. Don’t kid yourself into thinking you can wait a bit, either; this show should sell out in a flash. Get to it and good luck!
We’re still a little stunned to get this bit of news, but it’s true: Legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan is scheduled to perform at The Shrine Mosque on Sunday, October 25 at 7:30 p.m. Not only that, it’s more affordable than one might reasonably expect such a show to be at $46 for reserved seating. Tickets go on sale at The Shrine Mosque Auditorium Box Office, by phone at 800-293-5949 or online at Metrotix beginning Friday, October 2 at 10 a.m. We’ll get you more details as they arrive.
Memorial Day weekend is behind us, so regardless of what the calendar says it’s summertime and Nathan P. Murphys’ Hot Rock & Blues summer concert series is in full swing after the Wes Jeans kickoff show May 22. The next installment is this Friday with Moanin’ Michelle Malone–nickname courtesy of blues great Albert King, by the way, and referring to Malone’s singing style–and the club has decided to unleash a special twist for the show. Anyone who shows up at the show this Friday, June 5, and mentions reading this post gets two tickets for the price of one–buy one, get one FREE. This allows you the opportunity to bring A.) a friend, B.) a significant other, or C.) a person you’re actively trying to sleep with to a passionately performed folk-rock artist who has played with ZZ Top, Joan Jett, The Indigo Girls and Johnny Winter, to which we say:
C.) This is an all-ages show. Try not to be lewd in front of the kids.
Remember, you have to mention this post to get the deal. Tickets are $8.50 in advance or at the door–minors, listen up: no surcharge–and doors open at 8 p.m.
There aren’t many three-letter acronyms as fun to toss around as “V.I.P.” Indeed, many of us wish there were more avenues to feel that bend-over-backwards-for-us importance that comes with the special badge and status, such as this exchange:
“Pizza Universe, how can I help you?”
“I’d like a large supreme delivered.”
“That’ll be 30 minutes. Total comes to $12.50.”
“I’d like it in 10 minutes.”
“I’m sorry, sir. That’s not possible.”
“Shut it, fool! Do you know who I am?! V.I.P.! V.I.P.!”
“So sorry, sir. Right away. Blaine, start the car!”
“Put extra anchovies on it!”
“I rule you.”
Local concert promoters have been hip to this desire lately, the latest being Nathan P. Murphy’s on Campbell Avenue. Not only has the club put together a diverse and talented bunch of musicians for its Hot Rock ‘n’ Blues concert series this summer, it has also allowed us pedestrian folk to jump to the other side of the velvet rope, if you will. See what we mean after the break.
Free food, discounted drinks, the prospect of a potential meet-and-greet with Shinedown and Saving Abel… that all adds up to one hell of a night at The Shrine Mosque, and your chance to gain these extra privileges is about to expire. When the Shrine box office closes tomorrow at 5 p.m. you either have your regular-price tickets ($30) in hand, complete with free VIP upgrade, or you get them later and watch from the not-VIP areas and do not-VIP things with the rest of the schlubs.
Don’t be a schlub. Get your tickets tomorrow and party with the rock stars, if not necessarily like them.
Do our heads ever get to stop spinning?! First Korn is coming to town, then we find out there’s a battle of the bands for the opening slot… now we find out there are only a few days until you get the first crack at tickets. Okay… catching breath… alright. Details after the click-through.
Just heard word that Saliva has cancelled its May 30 show at Remmington’s Downtown. The biggest loss here is the fact that local rockers TROY were going to open. This would have been a very positive move for local music in Springfield, MO.
While poking around for info on the upcoming 311 show, we stumbled across 3 Doors Down ticket info on Metrotix.com.
311 is working on a new album (Yessssss!) due out late spring 2009. Looks like they’re going on a mini-tour, at least for them its small, to get back in the groove. Lucky us Springfield, we get the last show so by then they’ll be in fine working order and delivering their always a damn good time show that we’ve all come to love. Expect this one to pack out. Ticket info and more after the break.
Saturday marks one of local music’s messiest traditions, but oh, how it does bring the people: Big Smith and BBQ at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts. If you’re unfamiliar, the show combines a barbecue meal to scarf down before filing into the hall for a performance by local country-bluegrass legends Big Smith and opening act Walkenhorst & Porter.
Tickets are $13 or $26, depending on where you sit, and the festivities begin at 8 p.m. (Click here to buy tickets.) It’s as down-home as musical events get in Springfield, and we suggest coming prepared, bib in hand.
Okay, that’s a joke, but do come hungry. Brisket waits for no man.
