Where to Par-Tay Tonight 9/8/06
There's something for everybody tonight....
Kennedy @ Largo (?) – For the comedy rock fans. It always seems kinda weird to see Kennedy at Largo, but I guess if you see him as a comedy act it works. New readers of the site might wanna check out the “Your Mama” video - it’s pretty special. Remember when Kennedy was in Silversun Pickups? That was a long time ago.
Cold War Kids / Dr. Dog @ Troubadour (Sold Out) – For the indie rock fans. Remember when I told you that local guys, Cold War Kids signed a record deal and then the next day Pitchfork posted an “exclusive” news item telling you that the Cold War Kids signed a record deal? That record comes out on Downtown Records on 10/10/06. Download “Hospital Beds” Download Dr. Dog’s “Easy Beat”
Willie Nelson @ Hollywood Bowl ($8-34) – For everybody (hippies, rednecks, Texans, etc.) See my Saturday post for more info…..also Saturday and Sunday at the Bowl.
Vashti Bunyan @ Getty (Free) – For the hippie folk music fans on the west side. Her 1971 album was recently reissued due to interest from the freak folk community. She’s also got a new record. Also tomorrow at the Echo.
Dragonforce @ Wiltern ($18) – Do you like extreme power metal from Spinal Tap lookin’ dudes? Then this is for you.
Blowfly / Bob Log III @ Knitting Factory ($15) – Blowfly’s the self-proclaimed original dirty rapper (goin’ back to the 70’s).
Rakim @ House of Blues ($27.50) – Haven’t heard from him in a while. I never got any of his solo joints, but I do still break out the Eric B. and Rakim from time to time.
CocoRosie @ Avalon ($15) –Can they really fill the Avalon?
Nouvelle Vague / The Submarines @ the Fonda ($20) – A French band doing a lot of British cover songs with Jamaican inspired arrangements.
Tool / Isis @ Staples Center ($66) – I heard Tool sounded good and played about two hours, while Isis went on early and didn’t play very long.
