Saturday Night Music Options 11/4/06
Giant Drag @ Little Radio (1214 Long Beach Avenue) – I’ve only seen them once and they were having some technical issues. Lead singer Annie has legions of pervy dudes after her. Are you one of them? I heard she DJ’ed Spaceland recently and played lots of Kinks and Gram Parsons.
The Coral Sea @ Sea Level 4:00PM (Free) – Also appearing on Monday at Spaceland. From the label: “hypnotic and mellow dreamrock album that calls to mind classic albums by Bowie, Pink Floyd and The Beatles, with current comparisons ranging from Yo La Tengo’s melodic blue-streak zoom-pop to Radiohead’s impassioned layered vocal/guitar impressionism.”
Goldenboy @ Hotel Café ($7) – Their new album just came out on Eenie Meenie records. They play melancholy indie pop along the lines of the Eels and Elliott Smith. Smith is responsible for the band’s name as well. Download “Second Day of the Year”
The Who @ Hollywood Bowl – I’m not the biggest Who fan in the world, but they’ve got at least twenty damn good songs. I mean, you can put on Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy and it don’t stop. Never seen ‘em live. I just noticed $500 tickets are available on Ticketmaster. FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. The convenience charge is $26.55 on top of that. Good lord.
The Knife @ El Rey (Sold Out) – Swedish synth-pop duo that likes to be photographed in Eyes Wide Shut style masks. They have the good sense to have video art behind them when they play.
