June 21--Motley Cr e singer Vince Neil will return to the area this fall.
The hard rocker will headline a free show on Oct. 12 at Speaking Rock Entertainment Center.
Neil's been in the area with some frequency of late. He performed Dec. 1 at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. He played Speaking Rock on Sept. 3, 2011.
The October show will come six days after the Cr e finishes a three-week residency at the Joint in Vegas.
Also, Sublime with Rome will play at Speaking Rock's sister venue, the Socorro Entertainment Center, on Aug. 31.
Dirty Heads also are on the bill.
It's a free, outdoor show, part of a big car show planned there. Gates open at 1 p.m.
Jim Paul tells me that his wife, Connie
Paul, has booked a return engagement by local fave Dave Koz and Friends for Dec. 18.
It will be part of the Koz's annual Christmas tour.
Don't have any other details yet.
Molotov and cocktails
Maybe you saw them on the outdoor stage at last month's Neon Desert Music Festival. Now you can catch Mexican agit-rockers Molotov in the more intimate environs of Tricky Falls.
The band will play there at 8 p.m. Aug. 7, part of the J germeister Music Tour.
Tickets cost $20, plus service charges, at All That Music & Video, Bowie Feathers, Eloise, Maria's Closet, the box office and holdmyticket.com.
Fixed Idea funder
El Paso ska punks Fixed Idea have turned to Kickstarter to raise the dough they
need to cut their "Walk Like a Warrior" album and tour it.
They're trying to raise $8,000. They've got until 9 a.m. July 3.
They've raised $200 as of this writing, but that's about to go up cuz I'm gonna make a pledge.
