silver-mt-zionPICK OF THE WEEK: A Silver Mt. Zion @ Vanguard

The Godspeed You! Black Emperor spinoff’s first U.S. tour hits L.A. this Tuesday. The show was originally scheduled for the Echo, moved to Cooper Design Space and is now slated for the Vanguard. Let’s see if the show’s promoters can sell out this show in the next two days and move it to a 4th venue. If you had tickets for the Echo show, I feel for you.
