The Monday Show Low Down (Or "I'm In Love With The Stars Above Your House")

Whew! It’s done. The list on your right might just represent the most comprehensive music calendar in LA right now. It’s compiled from listings on more than a dozen venue’s web-sites and about fifty emails from local bands about their shows. (And many thanks to the fine folks over at You Set The Scene and The Scenestar for a few tips, too.)

So, take a moment to browse over it. It includes new dates for Pinback, The Silversun Pickups, The Cold War Kids, Say Hi To Your Mom, Voxtrot, and more. Go look and stuff.

Lotsa great stuff this week:

I’m definitely heading over to Bordello -- for the first time since they ditched their old name and the giant stuffed polar bear – to see Frankel and The Hectors. (And I’ve been meaning to check out I Make This Sound for a long time.)
