The Monday Show Low Down (Or "The Ghost Revenge Of ENIAC")

This week? There are an enormous number of good shows going on. So, let’s skip all the formalities and get right to it ... cause I've been having monster tech problems this morning and have to run to work to make some video games.

Tonight, The Front, The Pity Party, & Restaurant are playing a free show at Little Pedro’s , while Teddy's Cheer Club play at Mr T's Bowl and The Hold Steady are at The Troubadour. (I’ve been listening to a few tracks from The Hold Steady off of their myspace page and … it’s good stuff.)

On Tuesday, fellow LA music site Rock Insider is putting on a show with Ferraby Lionheart, Delta Spirit, Jaymay, and The Hourly Radio at The Silver Lake Lounge. Also that night are The Black Angels at The Troubadour, Ladytron at The Ford Ampitheatre, Matmos at The Jensen Rec Center, The Pogues at The Wiltern, and Bettie Serveert at Spaceland.

On Wednesday, Moving Picture Show play at Molly Malone’s while The Pogues return to The Wiltern.

Thursday night sees the start of the Arthur Nights series at The Downtown Palace, with Devendra Banhart, Bert Jansch, Jackie Beat, and more. And that night also has a free show by The Little Ones at Hollywood & Highland, The Ettes, Village Green, and The Purrs at Spaceland, The 88 and The Pogues at The Wiltern, and The Deadly Syndrome, The Vanity, Berko, and Glacier Hiking at The Echo.

On Friday, Arthur Nights has Be Your Own Pet, Boris, Heartless Bastards, and more at The Downtown Palace, The Bird and The Bee play The Silver Lake Lounge, and Two Gallants at The Troubadour. But I really want to try my best to catch The Lava Children at Mr. T’s Bowl.

On Saturday, Doveman and Glen Hansard (from The Frames) play Largo, The Decemberists and Lavender Diamond are The Wiltern, Arthur Nights has Six Organs of Admittance, Sun Ra Arkestra, Money Mark, Future Pigeon, Mia Doi Todd, and more at The Downtown Palace, instrumental rockers Caspian and Beware of Safety perform out on the west side at The Good Hurt, and Acute, Now It's Overhead, and Summerbirds In The Cellar at The Knitting Factory. Me? I’ve got tickets to see Beirut at The Troubadour that night.

And on Sunday, Lou Barlow plays Spaceland, Bonnie “Prince” Billie and Dark Hand and Lamplight all appear at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, The Joggers perform at The Knitting Factory, and Arthur Nights wraps up with The Fiery Furnaces, Comets on Fire, The Sharp Ease, and more at The Downtown Palace.

The following bands have also announced shows for LA: Sean Lennon, Cat Power, Modest Mouse, Bonnie Prince Billy, The Movies, DeVotchka, The Mezzanine Owls, Mark Fossom, The Bentleys, Enid the Dowl, The Cinder Cones, Ragsy, Say Hi To Your Mom, The Outline, Telescopes, Beware of Safety, The Elected, Signal Hill, Dark Hand and Lamplight, The Sword, Acute, Copeland, Hot Chip, Pernice Brothers, Elvis Perkins, The Appleseed Cast, Owen, The Secret Machines, The Wrens, Takka Takka, Sage Francis, Joanna Newsom, Sparta, and Girl Talk.
