The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Everything I Ever Needed To Know I Learned From Optimus Prime... In Bed.")

November’s been a month of dueling free residency nights at The Echo and Spaceland, with Great Northern in one corner and Let’s Go Sailing in the other. Last week, the grouping of Let’s Go Sailing, The Western States Motel, and The Deadly Syndrome pulled me over to Spaceland, this week, the appalling good line-up of Great Northern, Division Day, Light FM, and The Pity Party at The Echo is calling my name.

This week is looking a little scant otherwise, but did everyone notice that Brooklyn’s Dirty On Purpose is returning to town on Saturday at Spaceland? Mark that in the can’t miss column.

In Related News (Or Something):
- Cold War Kids have announced two shows at The Silver Lake Lounge, one on Friday, January 12th and one on Friday, January 19th. It’s great that they’re playing such a small venue now that they’re filling much bigger ones. Tickets are available here at the time of this writing, but will probably go quick.
- Aaron Espinoza from Earlimart reports that they’ve completed their long-awaited new album. No word yet on when exactly it’s coming out or from who, but he’s posted a new song on the group’s myspace page. From what we’ve heard off of it so far, it might be their best one yet. (I’m still really addicted to the song Answers & Questions that they gave us to post along with our interview back in August.)
- And don’t forget to mark your calendars for our Let’s Independent! event next week at Boardner’s on Tuesday with The Devils Romantics, The Spires, and Mezzanine Owls – three great bands who you can hear tracks from on our myspace page. Presented by Radio Free Silver Lake, Let’s Independent! is sponsored by KXLU 88.9, Sea Level Records, and Silver Lake Rehearsal. Here’s a look at our flyer.
- The following bands have also recently announced shows for LA: Lemon Sun, Tra La La, Annuals, Jim Noir, Jonneine Zapata, Eagle & Talon, Neon Lipstick, The Primos, The Bloody Heads (SLO), Emily Haines, The Dears, Soft Skeleton, Deerhoof, Hella, Of Montreal, Enon, The Mountain Goats, Black Pine, The Faraway Places, Nico Stai, Airborne Toxic Event, A for Attack, I Make The Sound, w/ The Kris Special, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians, Goblin Cock (featuring Rob Crow of Pinback), Pleaseeasaur, The Fucking Champs, Earthless, Citay, Pink Mountaintops, Menomena, 31 Knots, The Delta Spirit, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Carina Round, and Bodies of Water.
