Tickets On Fire!
We're putting you on notice -- some great shows are coming down the pike, and who wants to be left holding the proverbial "bag" when a show sells out before you get around to buying tickets?
So to that end, we present you with an opportunity to get in there as quickly as is humanly possible to buy purchase tickets for the following shows:
--Lucinda Williams returns to the Rialto on Thursday, March 30th for a rare acoustic duo performance with her longtime guitarist Doug Pettibone. Tim Easton opens up. This show is fully reserved seating, so the earlier you purchase, the better your seats will be. Purchase tickets on Friday, February 24th at 10 a.m. by clicking here and scrolling down to the Lucinda Williams entry.
--Yonder Mountain String Band tickets are currently on sale for their performance slated for Wednesday, April 26th. For the best in newgrass, jamgrass, or whatever descriptive categorical you wish to apply, click here.
--Finally, reserved seat tickets for the Sunday, May 21st performance of new country stud Billy Currington go on sale this Friday as well. Clicking here will get you to the right page, and then scroll down for the Billy Currington entry.
We look forward to seeing all of you in attendance, front and center.
Special Guests At The Rialto
For those of you who missed last night's extraordinary performance by Hawai'i's most riveting band, Hapa, well, there's more bad news.
You see, last night, none other than Peter Fonda paid a visit so as to catch the Hawai'ian supergroup, and graciously introduced them before their performance, in the true spirit of aloha.
On top of that, Mr. R. Carlos Nakai, the Grammy-nominated Native American flutist, stopped by to sit in, making for a fascinating collaboration that left us wondering where the native influence ended and the Polynesian influence began.
So the moral of the story, such as it is, is that you'll never know what you're going to miss if you pass up a show at the Rialto. Now don't let it happen again.

TOTALLY SOLD OUT, PEOPLE.
We're sorry. But hopefully this picture of puppies will give you some comfort.
