I only made it out once this week. All I can say is that Hot Topic vomitted on Spaceland on Wednesday night. It was as if the Strokes listened to a lot of Hot Hot Heat and hired a high school girl from the Midwest to be their image consultant.
Moris Tepper @ Tangier [$10] - He's a famous guitar player (Captain Beefheart, Tom Waits, Robyn Hitchcock, Frank Black) and has PJ Harvey on bass.
Lake Trout / Benzos @ Spaceland [$10] - Lake Trout worked with producers Tony Doogan (Mogwai and Delgados) and Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev) on their album. You can stream if from their website. Benzos is also sort of atmospheric rock.
Download Benzos "Glass Souls"
Download Benzos "It's Amiable"
Of Montreal @ Ex_Plex [SOLD OUT] - Indie pop darlings.
The Gossip @ the Echo [$10] - Indie dance darlings.
Matt Costa / Richard Swift @ Troubadour [$10] - Folky singer-songwriters.
Kennedy and the Teenage Sex Machine / Nous Non Plus @ Tangier [$10] - Nous Non Plus is a silly faux-French band. Kennedy is a silly (in a good way) Silver Lake guy.
That Kennedy video is worth another look: Your Mama
