The Jonas Brothers: Assisting In The Liberation Of Irving Plaza?

Jun 11th, 2009 // 5 Comments

Time to bust out siren.jpg: The Jonas Brothers are playing a free show in New York City tonight, where they’ll preview tracks from their forthcoming album Lines, Vines, and Trying Times for a crowd of fever-pitched fans, who will get in on a first-come, first-served basis. (And I’d already made plans to hang out in the Union Square area anyway! Awesome!) In addition to the idea that I might be able to get tickets, of particular interest to me is just where Billboard says this show is happening:

Teen pop sensations the Jonas Brothers will perform a free club concert tonight (June 11) at Irving Plaza in New York City.

Irving Plaza? Not the mouthful that is “Fillmore at Irving Plaza”? Could it be? Has Live Nation come to its senses in New York like it did in Philadelphia? Or is this just the Billboard copyeditors’ sneaky way to help beleaguered parents who are being rallied by their children to easily find the place, since damned if they remember any show at any New York venue called “the Fillmore” that didn’t involve pulling out a dusty old Grateful Dead record?

  1. Are you really gonna try to go, Maura? Cool.

    I am actually coming into the City tonight but will be too late for this…too bad. Bet it’ll be fun, they have their violin/viola ladies and new brass crew in tow.

    I am also betting there were more people lined up than could get in within an hour of the text message they sent to fans around 1pm.

  2. Lines, Vines, and Trying Times

    This album title is clearly a reference to the massive amounts of coke The Jonas Brothers was been using. Congrats boys, you’re officially rock stars. Please see the front desk for directions on how to obtain your ID cards.

  3. @ObtuseIntolerant: i will probably not go, but i will check it out!

  4. @How do I say this…Throwdini!?!: They deserve the ID cards, for sure. Well…at least as musicians if not rockers. :P

  5. I’ve always been more of a fan of Joe and thoughts of him being deliciously naked more than the music (with a few exceptions) but, Christ, the new CD is actually really good. “Paranoid” is the first song of theirs that I can play aloud and not cause my husband to flee the room in horror.
