The Irishman Cometh

The Open Air Theatre hosts their first show of 2020 with Irish singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy, and the Casbah hosts State to State.

When the 2019 season of music ended at the Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Amphitheatre, I kept seeing that the first show of 2020 was booked in February, and I thought that they were slightly insane. I mean, we don't really have many torrential storms in these parts, but surely it would be too cold to have a meaningful draw for Irish singer/songwriter Dermot Kennedy. Flash to this past weekend when we had a super hot Santa Ana and slightly cooler but still perfect weather on Sunday, and I guess they must've consulted their Farmer's Almanac and known the show would be just fine, though they're saying Monday evening will be the coldest it's been for a bit, so you will need a jacket. Seems like a perfect way to kick off the week to me. Around town, State to State return to the Casbah and Greg Rekus stomps and strums his way to the Tower Bar.
