John Doe‘s venerable solo career has continued to sparkle long after the dissolution of X, arguably LA’s mascot-band if there ever was one. His latest album (which just dropped yesterday), “Golden State,” has guest appearances by Dave Alvin, Jill Sobule, Kathleen Edwards, Eddie Vedder, Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, Dan Auerbach (from The Black Keys), Greg Leisz, Aimee Mann, Dave Carpenter, Jamie Muhoberac and Bryan Head. Not sure who his backing band is these days (for a while it was the fabulous locals Dead Rock West), but it’s sure to be a great show. We’ll send you if you can pen a clever haiku that summarizes either an old X song or a song from Doe’s solo career. Ayup. Got two pairs of tix to give away–so may the best haiku win!!!
If you wanna risk buying tix (this might sell out), you can go here.
