Weekend Live Music Picks
Here are just a few things that caught my eye for this weekend.
Turbonegro & The (International) Noise Conspiracy @ Avalon ($20) - A night of Scandanavian hard rock. Golly, I hope Turbonegro plays "Wipe It 'Til It Bleeds."
Rex Aquarium @ El Cid ($7) - Local indie band's record release party.
Jon Brion @ Largo ($10) - I don't like Kanye West.
Bob Mould @ The El Rey ($20) - According to the reviews, he's playing music from throughout his career. I'd really love to hear the Husker Du and Sugar stuff.
Turbonegro & The (International) Noise Conspiracy @ The Fonda ($18) - See above
The Mae Shi & Make Believe @ The Echo [early show from 6:30pm - 10pm] ($10) - The Mae Shi are a local band that kind of reminds me of Shellac. What little I've heard of Make Believe sounds kind of like Polvo.
LCD Soundsystem & The Juan MacLean @ Avalon ($18) - This tour is sponsored by PlayStation, but I guess I'll still call them indie electronic music.
Rademacher @ Sea Level Records [3:00PM] (FREE) - Mellow indie rock.
Tussle and Gogogo Airheart @ The Echo ($5) - Tussle's another indie electronic band that I hear is better live than on record. San Diego's Gogogo Airheart has a new album coming out on the 25th. You should be able to dance to both of these bands.
Mt. Egypt @ Tangier ($5) - You probably can't dance to this singer-songwriter.
Architecture in Helsinki @ Troubadour ($12) - I saw these Aussies a few months ago and really wanted to like them but just didn't. Maybe you will? They seem like really nice kids and they've got a lot of enthusiasm.
