There's Something In The Air
It's nice to know that, this weekend, people won't be complaining about the "Air" in Los Angeles, but embracing them at The Hollywood Bowl instead.
Although some might be from the camp that can't wait for Saturday's performance by Seal, Zap Mama, De La Soul and Van Hunt, we here at LAist are salivating at the idea of Sunday's performance of French band AIR with Roger Neill conducting the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and Stereolab opening.
Tickets, surprisingly, are still available — except for the "really cheap seats in the very back row" which were snapped up immediately by Angelinos who are fans of both hard-wooden benches and the nose-bleed section.
LAist will be there and will report back Monday on the performance that will potentially bring together the entire city in an inspirational and emotional convergence that will forever touch the deepest regions of our souls. Or, you know, just kick us on our butts cause the music is just so damn good.
If you're going, we'll see you there!
