Two iconic American rock groups will share the stage at the Fabulous Forum this summer as Cheap Trick joins Boston for their "Heaven on Earth" tour. Known for their killer pop hooks, Boston sold millions during the '70s and '80s with their catchy version of prog rock. Their self-titled debut was one of the fastest-selling pop debuts in history, spawning three hit singles that became American classics: "More Than a Feeling," "Long Time" and "Peace of Mind." At the same time, Cheap Trick was perfecting the delicate balance between power pop and hard rock that made them a major influence on future punk, metal and alternative bands. Songs like "I Want You to Want Me," "Surrender" and "Dream Police," along with their dynamic live performances, sealed their reputation as arena rock gods. Now, 40 years into their careers, the two bands are still going strong. The "Heaven on Earth" tour is traveling the country in support of Boston's sixth studio album release, Life, Love & Hope, and this is one of a select few appearances where Cheap Trick will be performing with them.

Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

Alternative Chamber Music writes music to be the soundtrack of the richer moments of our lives. A unique combination of American Roots music (Banjo, Dobro), Eastern European (Klezmer clarinet and accordion), and classical elements.
Quotes & Highlights
“Their haunting and strangely familiar music … is a soundtrack for the kind of puzzling dream which leaves you sitting awake in the middle of the night.” —The New Yorker
Note: The special kids show is at 2pm and is slightly abridged.
Making freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century, the Bay Area’s Tin Hat Quartet first earned widespread acclaim in 1999 with their debut release Memory Is An Elephant. While touring the United States and Europe extensively, the trio went on to release their subsequent albums to rave reviews: 2000’s Helium with guest Tom Waits, and 2002’s The Rodeo Eroded with guest Willie Nelson. “Music of Old World depth delivered with New World brio,” wrote Billboard magazine. “Those numb to the blips and bloops of the digital age will welcome the infectious acoustica of the classically trained, jazz-honed Tin Hat Quartet’s circus swirl of soul, mingling Left Bank jazz with Gypsy honky-tonk, skewed tango with postmodern classicism.”
Praised for the cinematic qualities of their music, the restlessly creative ensemble has recently embarked on an intriguing new endeavor: performing original scores for silent short films by the Russian animation pioneer Ladislaw Starewicz. Joined on stage by a sound effects artist, they accompany several of the legendary director’s exquisite insect and puppet animations, all made between 1911 and 1925: The Cameraman’s Revenge, The Insect’s Christmas, The Frogs Who Wanted A King, The Ant And The Grasshopper, Lily Of Belgium or Country Rat, Town Rat.
