Well, it’s that time of the year again. We are less than 100 days until Christmas. So, what are we naturally going to start thinking about? The 2017 lineup for 1057 The Point’s HoHo Shows, of course!
The lineup has been announced and it is a good one! With nine concerts spread out over three venues in a two-week time period, the season will be busy.
Add to it the diversity of the bands this year and you have a great stocking stuffer. Think about it: if you want to chill out you could go with Cold War Kids at The Pageant December 3 and X Ambassadors on the 13th, also at the Pageant.
Want to get groovy? You can go for Portugal, the Man and Vance Joy at the Peabody Opera House on December 14.
They have punk, too with Rise Against kicking things off at The Pageant on December 1.
Want heavy? You have Alter Bridge and All That Remains at the Pageant December 8.
Of course they have alternative covered with two great shows on Evanescence on December 3 at Peabody Opera House and Seether with Shaman’s Harvest at The Pageant December 12.
And what would a HoHo lineup be without a local show to showcase? This year features a show at Delmar Hall on December 16 with Tidal Volume.
All tickets for all shows go on sale THIS Friday at 10:00am
