Live Music Picks Thursday 9/21/06

Envelopes play Spaceland Tonight
Tonight's Pick:
Envelopes / Panther / Pop Kids @ Spaceland ($8) – Envelopes are a Swedish band (but the lady is French). They’re on tour with Ratatat and played the Troubadour last night. I got their CD, listened to it, remember liking it and then promptly lost it. According to all the reviews, they deconstruct pop and incorporate elements of all your favorite band: VU, Talking Heads, Beck, Stereolab, etc. I know that says nothing, but go to their Myspace page and listen for yourself. Download "Sister in Love"
Also Appearing:
Irving / The Oohlas / Monsters Are Waiting @ Hollywood & Highland (Free) – From 8-10PM. You can actually catch Irving and then cruise over to Spaceland for Envelopes.

Phoenix / dios (malos) / La Rocca @ Wiltern ($25) – According to dios, tickets are “like 40 million dollars (each).”
