The Monday Show Low Down (Or "My Chemical Impulses Told me to Come Here. WTF?!")

Man, I swear that the ants in this town can strip your arm to the bone in five minutes flat. It's like something out of an old William Shatner movie in my kitchen right now...

But enough about my pantry, you can tell from looking at this week’s line-up of music that Thursday is going to be a special night for young people. I mean, The Bedroom Walls have a free in-story at seven at Amoeba Music, then Tandemoro and Everything Now! play The Silver Lake Lounge, Jolie Holland appears at Safari Sams, and Jenny Lewis and Lavender Diamond are Spaceland. And on both Thursday and Friday, Built to Spill will roxxor The Troubadour and a little band called Radiohead will perform at The Greek.

And then, yeah, Band of Horses and Mt. Egypt are at The Echo on Friday. Finally. (I've had tickets for that for, like, ferevah.)
