Monday Night Music Options 1/22/07
Being sick and working too hard have prevented me from hitting any of these Monday night residencies, but hopefully tonight that will change.
The Broken West / Ferraby Lionheart / The Western States Motel @ Spaceland (Free) – I heard most of the Broken West’s new album this weekend and I really enjoyed it. The songs get under your skin and you find yourself humming them hours later. They’re the nicest guys in the world and the kind of the band you can’t help but root for. Get out and support them during their residency. Tonight they’re joined by local singer-songwriter Ferraby Lionheart who has a great reputation. The Western States Motel have a self-released album that I like. They’re another local band to keep your eye on.
Also worth checking out:
Pity Party / Mere Mortals / Ana Egge @ Silverlake Lounge (Free) – I still haven’t seen the Pity Party, but they’ve done a great job promoting this residency.
The Submarines / Dead Ponies @ the Echo (Free) – You really can’t go wrong here either. The Submarines are a KCRW friendly band that you could probably hear on a Zach Braff soundtrack or maybe Grey’s Anatomy. Dead Ponies are a little more sinister than that.
Gliss @ Viper Room
The New York Dolls Present: The Idyllists / The Rolling Blackouts @ Safari Sam’s ($10) - Special guest appearances by Lemmy from Motorhead and Slim Jim Phantom from the Stray Cats. Hosted by Sylvain Sylvain with DJ Sami Yaffa.
