AC/DC and The Decemberists

AC/DC!!! The band that shook us all night long released their album "Black Ice" last month, their first album in eight years, and now they’re on tour! Who knew? They will be performing tonight, November 30th, at 8pm at the Tacoma Dome. If you have nothing to do this Sunday night, AC/DC’s concert is a great idea. You'll be Thunderstruck by their new album. Even if they’re past their prime, it will be interesting to see what has become of this rock legend, and if they really do come Back in Black. If you’ve seen them before, see them again! Tickets are on sale for $90.50. But if 80s hard rockers aren’t your thing, check out The Decemberists, performing at Moore Theater tonight, November 30th, at 8pm. These Portland based folk-rockers will release their second album on Capitol Records, "Hazards of Love," next March. Get a head start as a member of their fan base by attending their concert. Tickets are on sale now for $30.
