Let's meet up for our yearly potluck picnic at the Hollywood Bowl! We've had some fun ones for Depeche Mode, Blondie, and others, but this time, let's have one before the Chrissie Hynde show! She'll be playing some old Pretenders favorites and her newer solo stuff with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.

My friend already got me a ticket, so I won't be able to collect money and coordinate getting seats with you, but if people on here are interested, please post on the message board, and maybe the group can coordinate a way for someone to collect money and buy all of the tickets, so that members can sit next to each other. Tickets start at $17 and up. There will probably be empty rows of bleachers in front of the $17 seats if the show doesn't sell out at the humongous venue. If you end up getting $17 tix, my friends and I are at: Section X1, row 3, seats 10, 12, 14, & 16.
