Live Music Options: 10/12/09 - 10/18/09

Blk Jks Play Spaceland On Thursday
Nights like Thursday are just a cruel joke to live music fans. It's another insane week of shows - old legends, new legends, 90's heroes and current Pitchfork darlings.
I caught Polvo last Saturday. The problems I had with their set list a few months back at the Echoplex were corrected. Great set. They played everything I wanted to hear.

Thursday 10/15/09
[Pick of the Week] Blk Jks / The Growlers / Mack Winston & the Reflections @ Spaceland ($12) – Blk Jks are a South African indie band. Don’t expect some sort of third wave Vampire Weekend stuff. It’s more along the lines of a psychedelic TV on the Radio. One of my favorite new groups this year. I caught their show a few months back at the Echo. Great stuff.
[Recommended] The Jesus Lizard / Model Actress / Black Elk @ The Fonda ($25) – David Yow’s still an unpredictable madman. A frontman like him doesn’t come around too often. Here’s a great chance to see them if you missed them back in the 1990’s.
[Recommended] Bob Dylan and His Band / George Thorogood @ The Hollywood Palladium ($57)
[Recommended] Yo La Tengo / Endless Boogie @ Avalon ($25) – They were one of my favorite bands in college, but the new record was a bit of a snoozer.
[Recommended] Le Switch / Paperplanes / Terry Prine @ Alex’s Bar in Long Beach ($5) – If you’re down in Long Beach and want to see some local bands, Le Switch is still one of my favorites.
Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub / Infantree @ Troubadour ($20) – Very talented guy.
The Flaming Lips @ Ricardo Montalban Theater (Free) – Buy the album at Amoeba on Tuesday or show up at the “Pop-Up” Store at the Ricardo Montalban Theater on Thursday for a chance to get in to the show. Like Yo La Tengo, I broke up with The Flaming Lips a few years ago, but I suppose I’d give them another shot for free.
The Streets / Gift of Gab from Blackalicious / Mickey Factz @ Club Nokia ($28.50) – Pitchfork darlings.
Dan Deacon / Nuclear Power Pants @ Echo ($10) – Another Pitchfork favorite

A Place to Bury Strangers / Darker My Love / All the Saints @ The Echo ($12) – I saw A Place To Bury Strangers a while back at the Viper Room. It’s so over the top, it’s kind of ridiculous.
Dan Deacon / Nuclear Power Pants @ Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock ($10) – If you had other plans on Thursday night.
Jon Brion @ Largo ($25)
Mike Watt & His Secondmen / Champage Velvet / Delaney Davidson @ Redwood Bar – Very intense, talented guy.

[Pick of the Night] Monsters of Folk @ Greek Theatre ($50) – This is the band featuring Jim James, Conor Oberst, M. Ward and Mike Mogis. I saw the original Monsters of Folk tour five or so years ago at the Orpheum. Jim James’ voice and M. Ward’s guitar playing make it worthwhile.
[Recommended] Butthole Surfers / The Melvins / Psychic Ills @ Club Nokia ($30 - $33) –I honestly didn’t know they were still touring, but when I was in junior high I listened to a shitload of Butthole Surfers.
