The Monday Show Low Down (Or "My Bowling Ball Weighs a Ton")

So, hi. Yeah. Quite a few remarkable shows have been announced in the last week. Like what? Oh, well, let me tell you...

On the last Tuesday of the month, the Bedroom Walls cd release party at The Troubadour will also play home to the songs-so-pretty-you-could-die Lavender Diamond and pop supercharmers Let’s Go Sailing.

Vancouver's stoner rock stars The Pink Mountaintops are coming back to LA at the end of June, this time appearing the other side of town at The Troubadour.

For people who like to dance, Bloc Party has just announced an August 3rd date at The Greek. And Montreal's Broken Social Scene will also be there with them, for people who like to jump up and down.

And you may have heard that Massive Attack will play the Hollywood Bowl at the end of September ... and possibly even bought two tickets as good boyfriend duty before you made the happy discovery that TV On The Radio were opening up that night, too.

What are this week’s most interesting shows? Well, twin local indie pop darlings Irving and The Little Ones are opening up for San Francisco’s Kelley Stoltz at The Echo on Friday night.

Then, there’s the Ship Collective Benefit for Fyn Stec & LA Children’s Hospital on Sunday at El Cid. Besides being for a good cause, the night boasts performances by Great Northern, Kennedy, Tigers Can Bite You, Aaron & Ariana from Earlimart, and "surprise special guests."

In other news:
- Alex Church from local favorite Sea Wolf has announced that the band will self-releasing an EP "sometime in July" but will have homemade three song demo cds for sale at their show at The Troubadour on June 23rd. For folks who have been waiting a year or so to take this act’s amazing material home, this is really good news...
- The following bands have also announced shows for LA: Space Mtn, Radio 4, Jonathan Wilson, Pink Mochi, Jucifer, Magic Christian, Cocorosie, The Vacation, Priestess, Boy Kill Boy, and Climber. (See the right-hand column for venues and dates.)
