Them Crooked Vultures announce Los Angeles date

October 26, 2009 | 11:27 am

After debuting in Chicago in August and playing shows in New York, Boston and Austin, Texas, among others, supergroup Them Crooked Vultures will finally land in Los Angeles on Nov. 17. The group, featuring an all-star lineup of Dave Grohl, Joshua Homme and John Paul Jones, will make its first L.A. appearance, at the Wiltern, the same day as the release of its self-titled debut.

Tickets officially go on sale Saturday. A Live Nation pre-sale is set for Thursday. The act's mini-West Coast jaunt will also include dates in Oakland (Nov. 19) and Seattle (Nov. 21).

The group is releasing its debut single, "New Fang," today as well. The cut is streaming on the band's MySpace page. It's a trippy, rhythmically dense number, with interlocking riffs and bluesy slide-guitar flourishes.
