Weekend Live Music Options
Archer Prewitt was a bit of a snoozer last night at Spaceland. Here's a little advance warning for the weekend shows. That's Kelley Stoltz in the photo....
Patrick Park @ Hotel Cafe - He's a talented local singer-songwriter. His last album would have been better with just voice and guitar instead of some of those arrangements.
Download "Life Is a Song"
Ralph Stanley @ Royce Hall [$35-45] - Gospel/bluegrass/country legend who you remember from the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.
Aceyalone / RJD2 @ Amoeba 6:00 PM [FREE] - Chance to see him for free before his El Rey show.
Aceylalone /RJD2 @ El Rey [$20] - Backpack hip-hop
Kelley Stoltz / The Drones @ the Echo 6:00 PM [$8/$10 dos] - This is my pick for the weekend. I'm really enjoying the Kelley Stoltz record right now. If you like the idea of a poppier Smog then you'll probably like it too. He got a great four star review in Mojo Magazine this month. Early show. I heard Stoltz goes on at 8:00PM sharp with the Drones before him.
Download Kelley Stoltz's "The Sun Comes Through"
Download The Drones' "The Down Bound Train (live)"
Early Man / The Sword / Priestess @ Spaceland [$10] - A night of metal bands who worship Judas Priest. I saw Early Man a couple of months ago and they were pretty good if you're into that sorta thing.
Download Early Man's "Death Is the Answer"
Saint Etienne @ Avalon [$21.50] - For the indie electronic fans. I've never been a fan, but I know a lot of people who are.
GoGoGo Airheart @ the Echo [FREE] - San Diego band on the GSL label. Kicking off their tour...
Download GoGoGo Airheart's "So Good"
Rademacher @ Spaceland [FREE] - This will be a little mellower night of rock than the Echo and it's free too.
Download Rademacher's "Playing For Fun"
