Ticket Giveaway! The Polyphonic Spree Holiday Extravaganza @ The Fonda 11-6

Ticket Giveaway! The Polyphonic Spree Holiday Extravaganza @ The Fonda 11-6

The Polyphonic Spree are a twenty-headed (give or take) pop choral symphony whose inception came like a dream to leader (and ex Tripping Daisy) Tim DeLaughter on a lazy Texas day at the turn of the millennium and whose Modus Operandi appears to be nothing short of total celebration. I’m...

Ticket Giveaway! Jens Lekman @ The Fonda 11-5

At some point you just have to start to think that maybe Jens Lekman needs heartbreak in his life, or at least has an interdependent relationship with it. His music often offers intimate snapshots of the journey that is love cherished and lost. Everything Jens does he does with a deft...
