That'll Be the Day
Welcome back to another Monday, LAists. We know no one is happy about having their nose back to the grindstone today, but we're hoping that kicking your heels up tonight will take some of the sting out of the workday. With that in mind, here are today's picks in entertainment.
Head over The Echo for some country rock straight out of Lubbock, Texas—also known as the hometown of one Buddy Holly. The Flatlanders, featuring Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely and Butch Hancock, will be performing tonight with the excellent Mike Stinson. Formed in 1970, The Flatlanders are one of country's most interesting groups, back together again after a hiatus that lasted from 1973 until the present. Catch them while you can! Doors open at 8:00 PM, tickets are $15.00.
If you're feeling a little more rock 'n' roll, LAist recommends spending the evening with The Hives and Sahara Hotnights at the Henry Fonda Theater. LAist has it from reputable sources that The Hives are quite the live show, a la The Stones in the early '70s.
Part of the ongoing series of musicals showing at the Egyptian Theater, tonight is the ill-fated 1973 musical Lost Horizon, a film which cannot be found on video. Directed by Charles Jarrott, the film bombed at the box office despite the power of its stars: Peter Finch, Liv Ullmann, Michael York, Olivia Hussey, Charles Boyer and John Gielgud; music by Burt Bacharach and lyrics by Hal David; script by Larry Kramer; choreography by the legendary Hermes Pan; and costumes by Jean Louis (who dressed Rita Hayworth in Gilda). The film starts at 7:30 PM and (schedule permitting) will be followed by a discussion with actor Michael York.
