Meeting Places / Eskimohunter @ Silverlake Lounge (Free) – They were Spin.com’s band of the day last Monday. If you’re into atmospheric, shoegazey rock then check them out. They’re playing the Silverlake Lounge every Monday in October. You’ve probably seen guitarist Scott McDonald at your band’s show (I see him out almost every time I go out). Download The Meeting Places’ “Love Like the Movies”
The Hold Steady @ Troubadour (Sold Out) – Indie favorites? Heavy drinking bar band? Bruce Springsteen disciples? All of the above.
Rocket / Catfish Haven / Earl Greyhound @ Spaceland (Free) – Rocket are Catfish Haven’s on Secretly Canadian records and Pitchfork gave their recently released record a 7.6/10. Download Catfish Haven’s “Crazy for Leaving” – I thought Head Like a Kite was playing this show too but apparently you’ll have to see them tomorrow at Cinespace instead.
Winter Flowers / Chapin Sisters (Free)
