Danko Jones

Buckcherry

That would be immense gigs to see if they could happen..buckcherry might be a little too big for the lemon tree though id reckon.

So does this mean the Lemon Tree might actually start getting some good bands again?

I am nothing but very positive in this area, suggest you keep checking The LT's new events, subscribe to their enewsletter.....

BOREDOMS is a totally fantastic sighting shot, don't you think?

Possibly, but then it depends if folk would travel to see them or not. I just want the chance to 'accidently' walk in on Danko's dressing room :love:

There's a bit of a gap in the brochure and you can see the time period from Andy leaving and Isla starting is a bit bare, but it's looking good so far. Got Alabama 3 back for a start and they were immense last time they played.

Willy Mason would be good at the Lemon i reckon. David Ford would also be class. I thought the magazine was looking really bare, just thought thats the way things were going these days. Glad to hear there has been a freshen up.

Joanna Newsom would be amazing.

I'm seeing her at the Royal Albert Hall in September which may indicate she might be slightly too big for the Lemon Tree. I think the Albert Hall gig is more due to the nature of her sound than her popularity though, stranger gigs have happened.....

I'd also like to second the Regina Spektor and Rilo Kiley suggestions, although I think they're both artists that probably suffer from the "too big for Lemon Tree/Moshulu but too small for The Music Hall" syndrome.

Oh, and I quite fancy seeing The Cribs aswell, just been listening to some of their new stuff and enjoying it lots.

Mogwai

Pelican

Jets Overhead

Modest Mouse

Clutch

Entombed

PJ Harvey (just so I can drool over her legs)
