The Monday Show Low Down (Or “Black Velvet Is Actually A Really Difficult Medium”)

Today’s update has taken enormously long to put together, so I’m going to try my best to keep this kinda brief…

Tonight? There are a lot of great free shows going on here in town, but I’m definitely going to see the final night of The Pity Party’s residency at The Silver Lake Lounge with The Happy Hollows, Eagle & Talon, and Twilight Sleep. And if you like your pop music smart and fun and crazy, you'll be there, too.

Other noteworthy shows happening this week include The Black Pine at The Echo on Tuesday, The Airborne Toxic Event and The Deadly Syndrome at The Echo on Friday, and an early show with Portland’s The Blow at The Echo on Sunday night. (Huge props to the booker for The Echo, apparently.)

- Army Navy have gone into the studio to work with producer Adam Lassus (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo) on their first full-length album.
- Let’s Go Sailing have announced that their album The Chaos in Order will be released nationally through Fontana Distribution on March 27th. They’re going on their first nationwide tour, too.
- The Central Second Collective -- the group of LA bands including Death To Anders, The Happy Hollows, and more – managed to raise more than $1,000 for at the benefit show at, again, The Echo on January 18th.
- Yes Me To Death are playing out again and will be doing a Sunday residency at The Scene in February.
- The other project band from folks from Irving, Afternoons, have a date at El Cid on Friday, February 23rd. Should be well worth checking out.
