This Week In LA: This Week In LA: St. Vincent, The Album Leaf, Sea Wolf, Imaad Wasif, Mumford & Sons, Pocahaunted

Best Coast's Bobb Bruno & Bethany Cosentino

Hello everyone!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Far too many exceptional shows last week including last night's NO CANCER! Benefit show with No Age, Vivian Girls, Best Coast, Graham Forest, Darker My Love and more. I do believe Bethany from Best Coast's performance as one of their most entertaining yet. As I have said several times before - watch out for that band.

Tons of great shows this week including St. Vincent at The El Rey which I have been looking forward to for MONTHS! Its been far too long since I've had my Annie fix. Her new video for for "Laughing With A Mouth Full Of Blood" is amazing.

Also this week Brit buzz band Mumford & Sons will play a SOLD OUT show at The Troubadour and The Album Leaf will play at the El Rey Theatre with Sea Wolf on Saturday. The Monolators will also play their first show ever at The Smell this Friday with Make Me from San Francisco!

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.

This Week In LA: Sonic Youth, Atlas Sound, Brilliant Colors, Woodsman, Best Coast

Brilliant Colors (San Francisco, CA)

Welcome back from the holiday break! It is a new decade can you believe it? I sure can't. I even went as far as accidentally writing 20010 on my rent check because I'm so used to the double zeroes.

Plenty of amazing shows this week including our show of the week featuring San Francisco's Briliant Colors. Seriously download their track "Absolutely Anything" in the sidebar and tell me that's not a smash. They will be joined by Best Coast, Dunes (feat the fabulous Kate Hall on drums), and Animal Style. Let's just say you'd be kicking yourself if you missed this show.

Up and coming Mexican Summer glo-fi/ambient act Woodsman will also hit LA this week playing three show including a free in-store at Origami on Tues. Jan 5th. I really enjoyed their new Collages LP. Pick it up right here.

Bradford Cox of Deerhunter will bring his Atlas Sound side project to the Natural History Museum Friday night kicking off their First Fridays series. He will be joined by the fabulously eccentric Tune-Yards.

Oh and some band called Sonic Youth are in town playing two make up shows. If anyone has an extra ticket just lying around please feel free to e-mail me.

What would the holidays be without a little gift giving! We're giving away a pair of tickets each for St. Vincent @ The El Rey Theatre Feb. 9th and The Black Lips at The El Rey w/ No Bunny Jan 23rd. To enter: Send an e-mail with your full name subject line: ST. VINCENT TICKETS or BLACK LIPS TICKETS to Winners will be chosen at random by Dec. 31st, 2009!

Next week plenty of New Years Eve action! I personally will be playing at Spaceland with The Monolators, The Henry Clay People, Le Switch, and Aushua. If you live on the east side this should be your place to be New Years Eve!

RIP Brittany Murphy

THIS WEEK IN LA: Cold Cave, Girls, Little Girls, Abe Vigoda, Nite Jewel, Pity Party

Thanksgiving is officially behind us and now it's full force til Christmas.The entire music industry shuts down after Dec 10th which means far less tours but more holiday parties stocked with Egg Nog!

Some scene gossip:
Local Natives have just signed to French Kiss Records
and will be putting out their debut LP Gorilla Manor on Feb. 17th. Congrats gents! I have known Local Natives a very long time and I'm excited they've found such a good home.

Indie darlings
Cold Cave will return to Southern California this week with two shows. I missed them at FYF Fest back in September and I'm excited to see them for the first time this week.

Also highly recommended this week is Toronto Lo Fi project
Little Girls who will be playing at The Bordello this Wednesday Dec. 2nd w/ Jubilee and Whoa Hunx and who could forget Girls at The Troubadour this Sat. Dec. 5th w/ The Morning Benders and Tamaryn.

Download music in the sidebar.

THIS WEEK IN LA: KISS, Peaches, Real Estate, Japandroids, Dum Dum Girls




Dum Dum Girls to to headline Spaceland Nov. 28th w/ Tartans, and Pearl Harbor

Happy Monday everyone!

With Turkey Day this Thursday it is definitely a light week for shows. I'm also certain that most of you will be tightening up your belts in preparation for the holiday spending season and will undoubtedly be attending far less shows in the coming weeks.

That's why we're hooking you up with even more concert tickets for free. Want to win a pair of tickets to see Dum Dum Girls this Saturday at Spaceland with LA Record cover girls Pearl Harbor and the absolutely amazing Tartans?

E-mail your full name to SUBJECT LINE: Dum Dum Girls Tickets.

Some great shows this week in the Southland. New Jersey Glo-fi project Real Estate are in town in support of their debut LP which recently recieved Best New Music honors from Pitchfork. The band will be playing TONIGHT at Spaceland w/ Happy Hollows and again TOMORROW at Echo Curio with my votes for the next locals to break Best Coast & Pearl Harbor.

Rounding out shows this week: Lissie fresh off a three night stint opening for Ray LaMontagne will play the Bootleg Theatre Tuesday with Leslie & The Badgers, KISS will play Staples Center on Wednesday, Japandroids and Surfer Blood will hit The Echo on Friday post Turkey day, and Peaches will headline The Wiltern on Saturday with the help of Amanda Blank.
