Private Bowl Concert
updated: Jun 11, 2014, 9:22 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

Did anyone hear the Styx show at the SB Bowl tonight for 1,500 oil executives? I didn't know the SB Bowl was for private events? Hope the County got some rent for the venue.

Update provided by an edhat subscriber:
It was a private event for a group of approx 500 employees (not just execs) from Teva Pharmaceutical. The group has been at Bacara all week as part of an incentive trip for their top performers.

I bet you're only complaining because it was "Oil" related, if this was for the Sierra Club or some other eviromental group, it would be ok with you.

A good Styx song? That's an oxymoron.

Ditto 99... Interesting reading tho, quite amusing especially 089. ha! As far as favorite Styx song? Um, no clue.

I heard it but didn't know it was Styx. When it's foggy, the sound often gets dampened in the neighborhood and doesn't travel far.

094 - Bill Brown was probably up North County way reassuring the residents that the new jail will indeed get finished. I'm sure he guaranteed it will not left in a suspended state of de-construction like so many places in Mexico & other less developed countries.

This wasn't the normal Bowl event. The SB Airbus filled the parking lot with their buses, so the audience was bussed in from elsewhere. Good to see the Bowl making some noise during the week!

I don't know what you heard or saw about Styx being at the Bowl... but it must have been a Grand Illusion.

On a rare occasion there are private concerts.. Last year Cheryl Crow played a concert for a big company....a big catered dinner event too

If it was an insurance company, maybe it was my company Liberty Mutual. Last year they put their executives up at the Baccara and rented out the sunken gardens for a big party.

Is it any wonder my rates are going up each year?

They're called Stynx for a reason. I think the only real losers were those who were there, or anyone within ear shot of them.

Darn it, I read the deleted posts and now I have an ear worm.
As I did when I read that Ambrosia is playing Solstice's park festival.
Hope I passed it on to _someone_.

230P. Dang it. You beat me to it. I just love, love, LOVE when people COMPLAIN about comments being whiny (proper spelling, by the way) or bombastic or peevish.

Makes me think of the pot and the kettle:

"Oho!" said the pot to the kettle;
"You are dirty and ugly and black!
Sure no one would think you were metal,
Except when you're given a crack."

"Not so! not so!" kettle said to the pot;
"'Tis your own dirty image you see;
For I am so clean – without blemish or blot –
That your blackness is mirrored in me."

—Maxwell's Elementary Grammar, 1904, [citation needed]

OMG 277B! Thank you so much for that quotation! I'm a word junkie and I never knew the pot and kettle were from a nursery rhyme of sorts. I wish I could have been taught "grammar" in such a fun way.

The group that had the private concert was Teva a pharmaceutical company who recently purchased The Bacara. They had an all inclusive holiday there for their top earners.Apparently this company has very deep pockets. This information came directly from one of the guests of Teva.
