Hollywood Bowl Announces 2010 Season

I know, I know, this is SAN DIEGO: Dialed In, not L.A. Dialed In, but my friends up at Filter sent the following my way and after having the good fortune of seeing Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem at the Bowl a few years back, I'm a HUGE fan of the venue (BYOB!!!). They put together stellar summer schedules that create experiences that just can't be duplicated anywhere.

The Hollywood Bowl is set to open their 89th Summer season under the Los Angeles
skyline and are gearing up for some of this year's most memorable concerts!
Check out what's on the docket for June, as well as what's sure to be circled on
your calendars!

Earthy African sounds of Baaba Maal and Tinariwen meet tribal electro-prog Yeasayer and tropical Afro-pop of Fool’s Gold in this extraordinary bill assembled to kick off the summer season. Buy Tickets

June 25th: Grease Sing-A-Long
Bring your best poodle skirt & saddle shoes, biker jacket & shades for the pre-show parade, and your heartiest vocals for a frolicking ‘50s sing-along to Grease, for the first time on the Bowl’s giant screen, and hosted by Frenchy herself, Didi Conn!! Grease is the word! Buy Tickets
