The Monday Show Low Down

- Several sources online have begun adding local alt folk band Lavender Diamond to the billing for Irving’s cd release event at King King on March 29th. Army Navy and Great Northern are also playing that night, making this one the strongest line-ups of any upcoming show outside of the summer festival circuit. This seriously looks like one not to miss...
- Tickets went on sale today and quickly sold-out -- save for an at-the-door allotment -- for the Benefit for Rose Scharlin School with The Silversun Pickups and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (BRMC) at Spaceland on Sunday, April 2nd.
- The recently-much-talked-about-and-with-good-reason Tapes N Tapes will appear at The Alterknit Lounge at The Knitting Factory on Tuesday night and Spaceland on Wednesday night. (Listen to the few tracks up on the band's myspace page and you might just head to Ticketweb to see if tickets are still available.)
- The Echo has announced that violinist/singer Petra Haden will play with Dos (the band comprised of Kira Roessler and Mike Watt) at the Jensen Rec Center on Saturday, April 1st. Petra will perform from her recent a’capella version of The Who’s Sell Out and promises a four-song duet with Mike Watt (whose long career as a singer/bass player requires an extensive Wikipedia page to keep track of). A current member of The Decemberists, Petra is also the daughter of legendary jazz musician Charlie Haden and sister to Tanya Haden, a cellist who has played for local bands The Silversun Pickups, Let’s Go Sailing, Paul Avion, and Sea Wolf (and who recently eloped with Tenacious D frontman/actor Jack Black).
- In other show announcement news, electro rockers I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness will head to The Echo on May 20th, Austin pop superstars Voxtrot will return to LA to open for Elefant on May 26th at The Wiltern, and musical bad gods Dios Malos come back to town on May 7th at The Troubadour.
