New Years Eve tickets

Still haven't made plans for New Years Eve? Fine Line tickets are available now for their New Years Eve show featuring Trampled By Turtles. The price Tag on Fine Line tickets for this show is quite a bit steeper than First Avenue's cover, but the Fine Line's does cover a bit more amenities. Such as: the cover price includes the beverages for the night at Fine Line, First Avenue's does not. Despite the heavy price tag, one flat rate for all the alcohol you can drink in a night sounds like a good deal. Maybe not the best idea, but it will at least keep you from dropping hundreds of dollars in bar tabs, right?

Trampled By Turtles is a band from Duluth, MN that is known around the area for being a great live band. They certainly attract crowds and pack night clubs with jam band fans of all ages.

Fine Line tickets are on sale now for their New Years Eve party, the cover almost doubles at the door so it pays to buy your Fine Line tickets ahead of time.

Gomez tickets

English rockers, Gomez, are embarking on a 2010 US tour in support of their new album, "A New Tide." One of those stops will be at the Fine Line Music Cafe this winter on Saturday, March 6th, 2010.

You may remember Gomez from that Panasonic tv campaign where they covered "I Think It's Getting Better" or maybe their songs "Catch Me Up" and "Little Pieces" which was featured on an episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Gomez gained their distribution in the United States by signing to Dave Matthews' label, ATO Records. At that time, Gomez began to tour extensively to gain exposure to new fans. Gomez played at Coachella and Bonarro Music Festivals and have toured with my personal favorite, Ben Kweller, Cake, and Dave Matthews band just to name a few.

Fine Line tickets for the Gomex show go on sale Saturday, January 9th, 2010. No opening act has been announced, however, this is an 18+ show.

Cracker Tickets

The Fine Line is on fire with show announcements!
David Lowery and Johnny Hickman of Cracker have just announced a show at the Fine Line at the beginning of February.
If you are reading this and you have not heard of Cracker you my fellow blogger are sadly mistaking! There songs "Low" "Teen Angst" "Get off This" and my personal favorite "Euro Trash Girl." If that still doesn't ring a bell check out YouTube - I know you know the jams!

And if you are a Camper Van Beethoven fan you will also recognize the name as David Lowery was the founding member of that band as well.

This tour they will be doing an unplugged and acoustic version of their songs, David Lowery and Johnny Hickman will not have a full backing band: they are the band!

Fine Line tickets are on sale now for this event. Cracker has a pretty dedicated fan base so if you want to go to the show you may want to purchase your Fine Line tickets now!

David Lowery and Johnny Hickman
Saturday, February 20th, 2010 18+

Everclear Tickets

Finally! It looks like the Fine Line has added a couple of shows to their calendar! And even shows that I might go to, one of them just announced is Everclear - one of my all time favorite bands. I have been a fan since I was in 7th grade, I've stuck by them through all the line up changes, the behind the music, etc. I always go and see them. I hope I will be able to make it to this show!

Everclear is touring in support of their new album (appropriately titled) "In a Different Light."

Everclear has went through several line up changes over the years, with the only original member in it being founder Art Alexakis. The other current members are pretty much hired musicians as follows:
- Johnny Hawthorn – rhythm guitar, backing vocals
- Freddy Herrera – bass guitar, backing vocals
- Sasha Smith – keyboards, piano
- Jordan Plosky – drums percussion

Fine Line tickets for this event go on sale Saturday, December 19th. If you want to go I would buy your Everclear tickets now - they will sell out.

See you at the show!
