TV on the Radio Brings the Thunder to Pomona
If you missed TV on the Radio at the Hollywood Bowl on Sunday night, or if you're like me and hate seeing a band you really dig opening for another band you don't dig nearly as much, head out to Pomona tonight where TVOTR will be playing at the Glass House.
The advert for the show was briefly removed from the Glass House Web site, but rest assured it is happening. When bands play larger shows or venues, they are often locked into contracts that prohibit them from playing within a certain radius for a selected amount of time.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m., opening act OHSEES will take the stage around 8:00-8:30 p.m. and TVOTR will come on around 9:30-10 p.m. if all goes according to plan.
I haven’t been to the Glass House much, but I give it two thumbs up. The drive out there isn’t bad, and it seems like a perfectly-sized venue for TV on the Radio: spacious enough to feel like a big show but not so huge the band won’t be able to fill it with their sound.
