KROQ Presents U2 at the Rose Bowl May 20th with The Lumineers @kroq @rosebowlstadium @u2 #U2TheJoshuaTree2017
 

U2 will be coming to the Rose Bowl on Saturday, May 20, 2017 with special guest The Lumineers. The show was announced as part of their Joshua Tree tour, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the band’s 5th studio album.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, January 17th at 10am via Livenation.com.

KROQ

The band posted a video on Christmas Day promising a “big year for the U2 group” with the release of Songs of Experience (the follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Innocence), as well as some “very special” Joshua Tree shows. Those shows will take the band through North America and Europe, including their first-ever US festival performance at Bonnaroo.

“It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally writtten, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk,” reflects The Edge. “To celebrate the album – as these songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too – we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We’re looking forward to it.”

Pasadena Shootings Possible Ties to Gang Rivals
 
Early this morning we received notice of a shooting in nearby Council District 3 (represented by Councilmember John J. Kennedy) that involved four victims, two of which were fatal and one which remains in critical condition. It is likely this incident is gang-related.
As many of you know, I have previously called on the City Council to increase staffing at the police department and I ask you to join me in renewing that demand. I also am asking the Police Chief to increase patrols by utilizing overtime. Our office will be in direct contact with the Police Chief and his department and I will distribute information to you as it becomes available.
While the shooting did not occur in District 5, this is a reminder of the need to redouble our efforts to ensure our police department is properly staffed and that we are providing community violence prevention programs and resources in order to ensure safety and security in our city. Please call me if you have any questions. I can be reached directly at (626) 664-9656.
Best regards,
Councilmember Victor M. Gordo
Below are the specifics received from Police Chief Sanchez:
On Saturday, January 6 at about 11:53 P.M., Pasadena Police Officers responded to a call of a shooting in the 100 Block of W. Claremont St. Officers located the scene of the shooting and a 23 year old man was found lifeless in the 70 block Pepper St. Within minutes paramedics at Fire Station 36 (1140 N. Fair Oaks Ave) reported that they were treating a second gunshot victim at the station, a 38 year old woman. She was taken to a local area hospital in critical condition.
At the same time, a single vehicle collision occurred at the intersection of California Blvd., and St. John Ave. Officers responded and discovered two additional gunshot victims at the scene of the collision. The third victim, a 23 year old man, was lifeless in the car suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The fourth victim, another man who was also a passenger in this vehicle, had sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound and was transported to a local area hospital.
Pasadena Police Detectives are currently handling the investigation. The motive is not known at this time and the identities of the victims are being withheld pending proper notification is given to families. Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call Pasadena Police at 626- 744-4241 or you may report information anonymously at lacrimestoppers.com (insert key word Pasadena)

Lincoln Beer Company Burbank Tap Room Coming Soon @626food #burbankbeer
 

Lincoln Beer Company

The beer brewing scene in Burbank and Glendale areas has been increasing, there is a new addition to Burbank as the first brewery with a tap room to open in Burbank, Lincoln Beer Company, a new tap room is being built and set to open this Spring(Spring of 2017). The location is near the Burbank Airport, or as the new name Hollywood Burbank Airport.

Patrick Dunn & Ryan Lipson are the owners and brewmasters. They moved into the 8,000 sq ft location in 2015 and a couple years later are now set to open a tap room.

We welcome more breweries into the area with increased consumption of beer we should see more microbreweries opening in the Burbank Glendale and surrounding areas. Pasadena would be a great location for breweries but apparently the city zoning code does not allow or makes it very difficult to open a brewery with tap rooms at this time, although there are moves to change that.

Lincoln Beer Company has six beers currently being brewed, but expect more to be added. The current offers are Muffin Grass (Pale), Honeysuckle (Session Ale), Something Simple (Cream Ale), Candy Fields (IPA), Winter Fiesta (Red Ale), and Triple C (Imperial Cream Stout). A great lineup of beers.

To check out Lincoln Beer Company:
