The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Are You There, Sauron? It's Me, Margaret.")

Man, be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home. I just got back from a week-long trip out to the east coast and it was practically like my girlfriend Christianne and I were on tour. Philly, Jersey, DC, NYC, and back within seven days? Whew...

I’d like to thank Josh (Pop Matters) Berquist, Brad (Radio Free Chicago) Knutson, and raconteur extraordinaire Gabriel Burger for posting on the site while I was gone. If you noticed a shocking surge in quality here on RFSL recently, it was because of the three of them.

So, regarding show updates... This Tuesday, Lavender Diamond and Let’s Go Sailing will open up for Bedroom Walls at the cd release party at The Troubadour, while across town at The Echo, the myth, the wonder, the legend that are Gil Mantera’s Party Dream will perform at Spaceland. This is the sort of decision that will haunt you forever. Extremely beautiful pop or... Well, you can just watch this video of Gil and co. in action and weigh the consequences for yourself.

Beyond that, Ship Collective bands Great Northern and Tigers Can Bite You have been added to the 6/23 show with Space Mtn and Climber at Spaceland. And Division Day has joined Austin’s Sound Team and Missouri’s Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin at The Troubadour on Thursday, June 15.

The following artists have also recently announced new dates for LA: The Raconteurs, Dengue Fever, Juana Molina, The Watson Twins, Matt Costa, Sleepy Jackson, The Bird and The Bee (Inara George and Greg Kurstin), Jose Gonzalez, Darker My Love, 8 Bit, Pop Levi, Eagle & Talon, Fairmona, Bunky (S.D.), The Fucked Five, Hawksley Workman, Nire, Gliss, Hella, The Advantage, Mike Viola, Death To Anders, Gran Ronde, Gliss, Anonymous, Mark Eitzel, Soul Asylum, and The Lovemakers.
