The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Where Have You Gone, Ogami Itto?")

So, hi. Yeah. I’m pleased as goddamn punch to announce that Radio Free Silver Lake is starting up a new monthly music night called Let's Independent! at Boardner's in Hollywood.

The first night takes place Tuesday, September 26th with three fantastic LA acts -- local legends The Movies, indy rock stars Great Northern, and summer pop dreamers The Western States Motel -- playing the night on the patio stage, while djs spin the huge club area.

Please save the date and let a few friends know to help push the night for us, eh? We'll be promoting the hell out of it, but we could use all the help we can get.

If you could make it, we'd really appreciate it. It's promising to be a great big party with some excellent music and people on-hand.

Here's the myspace page for the event where you can hear some songs from all three acts: Let's Independent!. Add us!

Now as far as this week’s shows go… Some weeks in LA there are so many good bands playing that you end up having to go out at least a few nights in a row. And this week looks like one of them.

Tonight is the final free residency night at Spaceland for The Little Ones, who are one of the best live acts in town.

On Tuesday, Eskimo Hunter – who the kids over at Rock Insider and Rewritable Content seem to both really like – are playing at Spaceland with The Minor Canon and Stars of Track & Field.

On Wednesday, the aforementioned Western States Motel are headlining The Silver Lake Lounge, along with Acute, Kiev, and Sunday Drivers.

Then, one of my favorite bands from NorCal, Rademacher, are coming down to play on Saturday at The Cog party in Glendale and Sunday at The Cocaine.

The following bands have recently announced show dates in LA: Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, Red Kross, Oh No! Oh My!, The Blood Arm, Of Montreal, The Like, Jose Gonzalez, Beirut, The Decemberists, Lavender Diamond, The Pink Mountaintops, The Silversun Pickups, M Ward, Mike Watt, Grizzly Bear, Ladytron, Benevento-Russo Duo, Rademacher, The Old Crow Medicine Show, Hem, DJ Shadow, The Films, Persephones Bees, The Grates, Die Princess Die, Kasabian, The Killers, La Rocca, A Shoreline Dream, Jeremy Enigk, Kinky, Soul Wax, The Ettes, Scissor Sisters, The Purrs, Fields, Jet, Billy Bragg, Favourite Sons, The Karabal Nightlife, and more. (See right-hand column for details.)

And before I forget, I wanted to point everyone over to the Reno-based music blog Chris Walker Versus. Chris recently did a great Division Day interview, in which RFSL was name-checked and linked to from, so I wanted to return the favor. Thanks, guys!

Will try to make it out to the show. Great Northern owns me.
