Chris Parreira Presents...

Steve Poltz
w/ John Ludington
Weds. Dec 11
8PM (early show!)

Southern California’s Steve Poltz is one of the most beloved songwriters of his generation. His music--as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns--has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies. He has collaborated with everyone from Jewel to Glenn Tillbrook to Mojo Nixon, and his legendary live show has earned him a ferocious global fan base that makes soccer hooligans seem coquettish and reserved. In fact, X front man John Doe once said, "My idea of hell would be having Steve Poltz open for me every day. There's no place left for the audience to go."

Requiring the flimsiest of reasons to launch a world tour, it is no surprise that literally minutes after the album is released, Poltz will be back on the road. When will he slow down? "Never--hopefully I'm doing this when I'm 80 or 90. I'm never retiring because the day I retire is the day I break my hip, catch pneumonia and die, and I don't want to die. Ever."
