While I Was Out: Ben Folds, Ray LaMontagne & More!

Ah, back from Lolla and a ton of Dallas concert news to catch up on. While I am updating the calendar, let me hit a few of the highlights:

Well, first a lowlight: Emmylou Harris' concert at the Majestic is cancelled tonight due to a death in the family. No word on whether these will be rescheduled. Refunds at point of purchase.

In other Majestic news, Ray LaMontagne is playing on Friday, October 24 (tickets are $27.50 to $33 and go on sale Friday at 10 AM, with an internet presale going on now).

Also, Cheech & Chong are reuiniting for their first tour in 25 years and are hitting the Majestic Saturday, November 1. Tickets range from $40 to $60 and go on sale Friday at 10 AM, but there is a presale through musictoday tomorrow and on Ticketmaster Thursday. Usually I just stick to music shows and not comedy but they did do "Basketball Jones" and a bunch of other songs so I'm counting it.

Piano man Ben Folds is coming to the Palladium Ballroom on Thursday, October 23. Tix are $32 and go on sale Friday at 10 AM.

Los Lonely Boys and Alejandro Escovedo are playing at the House of Blues on Halloween. Tickets are $27.50 for general admission and up to $75 for reserved and go on sale Friday at 10 AM (with presales starting tomorrow).

Let's see, according to Pollstar, a Glenn Danzig-less "Misfits" will be reappearing at the Granada on Wednesday, November 26. No ticket info on that one yet. But you are probably better off seeing Danzig at the Palladium on October 30 (Halloween Eve!!) anyway.

Lastly but not leastly, tickets for the previously announced TV on the Radio show at the Lakewood Theater go on sale Saturday at 11 AM.

Hoping to have a full list update tonight.
