A couple of classic rock icons are making a swing through Des Moines next summer. Journey and The Doobie Brothers have announced a Des Moines stop for their joint tour on Aug. 7, 2016. Tickets went on sale last Friday and are available at The Wells Fargo box office or at www.hy-veetix.com. In a separate announcement, The Beach Boys are swinging through the city, with a show scheduled for May 15 at the Civic Center. Those tickets went on sale Dec. 7, and range in price from $45-$85. You can get them at the Civic Center box office or www.desmoinesperformingarts.org.
This week’s Pick o’ the Week is Thursday, Dec 10, at The Basement. Get down there at 9 p.m to check out Easy Fruit, Odd Pets, The Blendours and TWINS. Admission is $5 and is a bargain at twice the price. Mahalo. CV
