The Monday Show Low Down (Or “Pumpkin Pie For Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner”)

This Tuesday night sees the third of our monthly Let’s Independent! events at Boardner’s in Hollywood, this time with indie rock supernauts The Devils Romantics, sad pop greats The Spires, and the fuzzy and poppy Mezzanine Owls.

If you like both new music and fun, you ought to come -- because we'll have both in excessive and equal amounts. If you haven't heard one of the acts before, check out our Let’s Independent! myspace page to hear tracks from all three. (And make sure to head over early to see The Devils Romantics, who go on first.)

Other noteworthy shows going on this week include:

November’s dueling free residencies concludes with Let’s Go Sailing, Timonium, and Charlie Wadham and The Harmony Brothers at Spaceland and Great Northern, Irving, Twilight Sleep, and All Smiles at The Echo. (Since indie pop darlings Irving are one of the best bands in town, I’d have to say the decision goes to The Echo this time.)

On Tuesday, Thailand, Bedroom Walls, American Music Club, and Wonderground play The Silver Lake Lounge.

Wednesday night? There's Junia May and The Hymns and Handsome Family at El Cid.

Thursday, Joanna Newsom is at The El Rey, Wake Up Incinerate, The Mama Suki, and Die Rockers Die are at Mr T's Bowl, and And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead and Blood Brothers perform at The Henry Fonda.

This Friday, Mark Eitzel of American Music Club and Johnny and The Moon (featuring Dante Decaro of Wolf Parade head to Spaceland, while Beware of Safety and Signal Hill play Pehrspace.

Saturday night, The Dears play The El Rey, Goblin Cock (featuring Rob Crow of Pinback) and Pleaseeasaur are at Spaceland, and Sea Wolf, Ferraby Lionheart, Patrick Park, and What Milwaukee Famous team-up at The Troubadour.

And on Sunday, Artichoke have a free in-store at Sea Level Records.
