This Week In LA: Morrissey, Passion Pit, Avi Buffalo, Pearl Harbor, Evan Voytas

Pearl Harbor (Los Angeles, CA)

Well last week just flew by didn't it? December seems to do that..

This week is pocked with holiday celebrations and last shows of the year. An amazing amount of solid local bills this week. If you haven't ventured out to see local music in quite some time might I recommend getting out of your house to check out
Shirley Rolls, The Henry Clay People, Tearist, Correatown, Avi Buffalo, Pizza!, Signals, Evan Voytas, and Le Face at some point this week?

There are also plenty of Holiday Soirees to make sure you'll be well fed and slighty tipsy. Remember to drive safe out there...

New batch of MP3's can be found in the sidebar. Download them now so you know what's going on with music.

Did we forget any shows? Feel free to send us an email to
