THIS WEEK IN LA: Vampire Weekend, Adam Franklin & The Bolts Of Melody, A.A. Bondy, Jam For Ron Asheton, Yummy Fur

Vampire Weekend Album Release Show At Henry Fonda Theatre Tues. Jan. 12th

Happy Monday everyone!

This first week back after the holidays certainly was a productive one! So many great shows so little time. I did manage to catch 60-Watt Kid and Glasser at Spaceland on Saturday. 60-Watt Kid
BLEW MY FREAKIN MIND. Their lush spacey songs are will know doubt draw comparison to Animal Collective and Atlas Sound but their energy is straight up punk rock. If you haven't had the opportunity to catch this band yet do yourself a favor and make it a priority.

Lots of great shows this week including Vampire Weekend's SOLD OUT date at The Henry Fonda and Wednesday's Jam For Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton at The Roxy featuring Mike Watt among others.

Our show of the week however is a slam dunk at Spaceland this Sun. Jan 17th with Adam Franklin (Swervedriver) and The Bolts of Melody. You will want to arrive early for the opening acts. Also playing next Sunday will be a new project
by Mr. Jack Burnside of Mezzanine Owls fame that has be christened with the name Rabbits. Jenni Tarma (Eskimohunter) Dan Horne (Mezzanine Owls, Music Go Music, Beachwood Sparks), and Chris Newcomer (The Arms) will also be sitting in.
