Show Announcements: Crowded House, The National, Little Black Dress, RTB2, Calhoun, The Wailers and Others.

Yesterday, the folks over at Live Nation announced that, for the second year in a row, there will be no service fees for tickets purchased in the month of June. This is really good news--especially if you're interested in the pile of summer shows that House Of Blues just announced.

Like, for instance, the fact that Crowded House will be at the House of Blues on Thursday, August 5, in support of their forthcoming album, Intriguer. This should be a perfect opportunity to catch one of the best songwriters in the world, Neil Finn, in an relatively intimate setting. General admission tickets go on sale Friday, June 4, for $27.50 at 10 a.m. at Live Nation.

And, a couple months after that, on Saturday, October 9, The National will be making a pit-stop at the venue in support of their brilliant new record, High Violet. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 4, at 10 a.m. for $27. Also available: Four-packs of tickets for $89. Both are available at Live Nation.
