The Monday Show Low Down (Or “Making Out With Gas Masks On”)

Gah. I worked all weekend, so I’m making sure to go to tonight’s free residency show at The Echo with Parson Red Heads, Nico Stai, and last week’s Band of the Week pick The Black Pine. Also tonight and free are The Delta Spirit and What Made Milwaukee Famous at Spaceland and Twilight Sleep and Summer Darling at The Silver Lake Lounge.

On Tuesday, there’s a Rock Against HD (or Huntington's Disease) fund-raising event at Boardner’s of Hollywood (where we have the monthly Let’s Independent! shows) with Buffalo Roam, Bloodcat Love, and Lexington Queen. Dead Ponies and The Cops are at The Scene in Glendale, Lemon Sun is having a party at The Echo, Mezzanine Owls are playing The Prospector in Long Beach, and Death Cab For Cutie and Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins head to the Bren Center at UC Irvine.

On Wednesday night, Tra La La, Annuals, and Jim Noir play Spaceland, The Youngs are at The Silver Lake Lounge, The Lava Children, Rocking Horse People, and Ema & the Ghosts rock Mr T’s Bowl and Monsters Are Waiting, Low Vs Diamond, and The Deadly Syndrome take Safari Sam's.

Thursday, The Faint return to town with Ratatat and Ladytron at The Palladium, Warm Climate, The Kris Special, The Harpeth Trace, and Joan and Caesar play Mr. T’s Bowl, and Jonneine Zapata annihilates Molly Malone’s.

Friday night? I’ve got nothing. What am I missing?

This Saturday, Dead Meadow, Spindrift, and Tsk Tsk head to The Troubadour, The Pink Mountaintops, Menomena, and 31 Knots roxxor Spaceland, and The Little Ones, June in July, and Small Sins blow up The Echo.

Then on Sunday, Jet plays Spaceland, J DiMenna performs at The Silver Lake Lounge, 400 Blows, Die Princess Die, and The Pope destroy (for free) The Scene in Glendale, Enid The Dowl plays as part of the regular Eagle Rock Sunday Night Bowling & Drinking Club at All-Star Lanes, and The Hectors and Mospeda take Bar 107 downtown.
