Black Label Society Unblackened with Special Guest – Wino @ The Paramount
Apr 3 @ 8:00 pm

black_label_society

Hard Rock legends Black Label Society, fronted by guitar icon Zakk Wylde, have announced the Unblackened tour. Originally a one night only concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles filmed 2 years ago for a live DVD and CD will now make its way across the US.  The show will feature intimate versions of some of the band’s most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde’s best-selling solo album Book of Shadows and Southern rock band Pride & Glory.  “I always wanted to take Unblackened on the road, we just didn’t have the time until now,” said Wylde. “You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it’s something totally fresh. The attitude of the songs doesn’t change when we play them acoustically–the tunes are gritty regardless.”

An Intimate solo / acoustic performance with Citizen Cope @ The Paramount
Apr 11 @ 8:00 pm

CitizenCope

Born Clarence Greenwood, he is the radically mashed-up product of Greenville, Mississippi; Memphis, Tennessee; Vernon, Texas; Austin, Texas; Washington, DC; and Brooklyn, New York. These locations are felt everywhere in his stories. His sounds are southern rural, big sky lonely, concrete urban, and painfully romantic.

Cope’s musical education was catch-as-catch-can. During the eighties, he took sound classes and found himself fooling with a primitive four-track setup. For years, he got lost in his self-designed lab, cooking up beats that only later would be shaped into songs. As a serious artist with no interest in rock star glory, Cope figured he would eventually find the right voice to sing his songs – he later found that voice within himself.
