Hoyt Sherman Place has been announcing a lot of concerts lately, but this week’s announcement might be their oddest pairing yet. Tickets went on sale this past Friday for Foghat, performing at the venerable concert venue this Oct. 29. Tickets can be had at the Hoyt Sherman box office, or via Ticketmaster, and will run you anywhere from $35 to $65.
This week’s Pick o’ the Week is up in Ames, and you can pick your date and venue. Just get up to the college town anytime between Sept. 10 and Sept. 13 and check out the Maximum Ames Music Festival. There will be dozens of local and regional acts performing throughout the city, with the event headliners being Mountain Goats, Ex Hex, Mikal Cronin and Grandmaster Flash. Check out www.maximumames.com for schedule, tickets and details. Mahalo. CV
