The Coachella Of Tribute Acts Hits Southern California
It’s hard to be partial to any concert in the greater Los Angeles area where you can get front-row tickets for around $50, but any show where you can see New Order tribute act Love Vigilantes (now featuring a Gillian!) seems too good to be true.
As previously mentioned on the site, the Smiths tribute act Sweet And Tender Hooligans is remarkably entertaining.
Blasphemous Rumours, the Depeche Mode tribute act, seems good enough, although at this point, would anyone be able to tell the difference?
Also featured: an Oingo Boingo tribute act; and a Cure tribute band that will apparently have former Cure member Lawrence “Lol” Tolhurst on drums and depression. The show’s site promises more “special guests”, but what more could you ask for? Besides the actual acts performing, of course.
