L.A. Burning, West Coast Concert Picks, January 17th-23rd

West Coast Concert Picks
Tupac Shakur exhibit

Cancellations are still happening and there is no logic to them: Some relatively small gigs have been canceled or postponed whereas the large iHeartRadio ALTer Ego event at the Forum with Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Kings of Leon (and others) is happening tonight. Meanwhile, the concert with the Zombies’ Colin Blunstone and plenty of special guests including Matt Cameron of Pearl Jam, Susanna Hoffs, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, Weyes Blood, Orchid Quartet, Mary Timony has been canceled. Nothing too exciting in these West Coast concert picks: there is a new Tupac Shakur exhibit opening downtown LA and a favorite of mine, S.G. Goodman, is opening for John Moreland at the Teragram Ballroom
