Mark Kozelek @ Aladdin Theatre Tonight

OK for people who don’t know who Mark Kozelek is, I will enlighten you. He was a member of “Red House Painters” (in San Francisco). These days he alternates between with his “Sun Kill Moon” project and his solo work. But his work with the “Red House Painters” is the shit. It is folk music taken to another dimension and really worth checking out. Kozelek is touring in support of his new solo album and a re-release of his Sun Kill Moon album, which has been getting pretty decent reviews. The tickets are going to be $17 and the show starts at 8pm. I have never been to the Aladdin Theatre since most of the bands that come through are pretty shitty in my opinion but once in a while they do have good people coming through and Kozelek is a good example. Lets support Kozelek in hope that maybe Aladdin will get more artists like him coming through more frequently.

    Thanks Rocky! I’ve always loved the Red House Painters. Haven’t seen Mark Kozelek since his role in "Shop Girl". Glad to hear he’s in town.

    Actually, it’s Sun Kil Moon.

    rocky, one word of advice, saying "most bands that come through are pretty shitty" is a pretty shitty thing to say. Especially for those of us who have seen dozens of shows there.

    Don’t blame Rocky "Racoon". I bet he doesn’t even know Rilo Kiley is coming to town.

    Rocky, Rilo Kiley is that band with Jenny Lewis in it – you know her better as that girl in the Fred Savage movie "The Wizard".

    Chris, I guess everybody has different tastes. And what I said was my opinion, I respect yours.

    Daaaave, Rilo Kiley is alright. I could live without them. And thanks for correcting my spelling, much appreciated.
