I don't think any of this stuff is going to get me out of the house this week. I was very impressed with Mike Therieau at El Cid on Friday. He's got a very good voice.
Beth Orton @ Avalon ($25) – Do you miss Jim O’Rourke now that he’s out of Wilco and Sonic Youth? Well, he produced Beth Orton’s last record.
Crosby Stills Nash & Young @ Hollywood Bowl – I just looked and you can still get some of the $187.50 tickets. That’s totally outrageous.
Darker My Love @ Spaceland (Free) – The last night of their month long residency.
Alexi Murdoch @ the Troubadour ($17 adv / $20 dos) – He’s a mellow singer-songwriter but I haven’t heard him.
Bedroom Walls / Listing Ship @ Tangier ($8) – Local mellow rockers.
Manu Chao / Kinky @ Shrine (Sold Out) – I just read that Latin music is the only genre that has experienced sales increases this year.
Hot Chip @ The Troubadour (Sold Out) – Hipster indie electronica on the DFA label. I find it boring, but a lot of friends seem to like it.
Panic! At the Disco / Dresden Dolls @ Wiltern (Sold out) – Young Vegas band sells out the Wiltern.
Plastilina Mosh @ Knitting Factory ($20) – More Mexican dance music.
