Live Music Options: 3/1/10 - 3/7/10

The Clientele Play Spaceland on Friday and Saturday


Last week featured a lot more buzz bands than this week. I made it out to see Free Energy (they were ok, I thought the Blondes were a helluva lot better when they were still around), Gamble House (lots of potential, Grizzly Bear-esque, sound at the Silverlake Lounge not too complementary) and Bear Hands (totally won over the crowd (and me), if you like dance rock like Hot Hot Heat and Franz Ferdinand you should check them out).
