The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Can We High Five to That?")

With the summer show schedule still shaping up, autumn is already advancing tantalizing prospects. Long-term planners currently can commit to Do Make Say Think at The Troubadour on November 29th. Even more exciting is that The Pogues will make a rare appearance at The Wiltern on October 18th. Tickets for that sure-to-sell-out show go on sale this Wednesday.

A more immediate payoff awaits at The Greek Theatre on August 13th when indie idols Death Cab For Cutie team with Spoon and Mates of State. Alt-country icons Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, and Neko Case are also joining forces for a show at The Hollywood Bowl on September 10th. For those that couldn't score tickets for their appearance at The Henry Fonda, Jack White and his Raconteurs return to Los Angeles for two nights at The Wiltern on July 20th and 21st.

On the smaller scale, The Futureheads and French Kicks will join for an alliterative evening at The Fonda on June 19th. Tilly & The Wall will tap their way into The Troubadour on July 6th while Scottish darlings Camera Obscura take that same stage on July 19th. Over at The El Rey, The Walkmen will unleash songs from their uncontrollably awesome new record on June 15th.

As relentless as it seems, that's just the out-of-towners. Local artists Great Northern are promising an evening at The Echo with The Brokedown on July 6th. Coming up even quicker is Division Day with The Southland and Peter Walker at Spaceland on June 1st.

As for this week, Monday means more brews with The Bronx for another night of their Spaceland residency. Then The Fall is scheduled to stumble back into The Knitting Factory for a second night of shambling brilliance this Tuesday. The Eels start up a two night stand at The Roxy on Thursday, while Petra Haden does her a cappella thing with America's Funnyman, Neil Hamburger at The Troubadour. Friday night wraps up the week with Elefant at The Wiltern bolstered by up-and-comers Voxtrot and Silversun Pickups.

The following artists have also announced dates for LA: Tom Verlaine, The Rentals, She Wants Revenge, Dashboard Confessional, Panic! at the Disco, and Keane. (See the right-hand column for venues and dates.)
