Monday 8/25/08
[Recommended] Radiohead / Liars @ Hollywood Bowl (Sold Out) – I’m not a diehard like a lot of people, but Radiohead’s still a great live band. I will be there tonight.
[Recommended] Bon Iver / A.A. Bondy @ Troubadour (Sold Out) – Bon Iver put out one of my favorite records of the year. Justin Vernon was quite good earlier this year at a sold out show at the Echo. AA Bondy
Warpaint / Josh Klinghoffer / Of Aire / Radius @ Spaceland (Free) – The last night to catch the Warpaint residency. I’ve heard that it’s been nuts every week. Expect it to be nuts again, because the rumor is that John Frusciante will be joining Josh Klinghoffer. Don't quote me on that.
