The Monday Show Low Down (Or “Let’s Put Our Clothes On Inside Out And Walk Around”)

Good music is like a bus. You wait and wait and wait and then three show up at once. That's to say, I’ve been pleasantly inundated with great new albums lately…

I’ve got in my dirty, borderline ostentatious car an advance of the next month’s Sea Wolf cd, the Princeton EP, a pre-release of Tigers Can Bite You’s album, The Happy Hollows’ Echo residency EP, and Earlimart’s Mentor Tormentor, which is by far my favorite album this year.

It’s all killer, no filler, and it sure makes my morning commute from Silver Lake out to near LAX a little easier.

Anyway, enough about me. Here’s what this week is looking like, show-wise.

Monday, August 27
- Manic, Stranger Smile, Unarmed, & By and By @ The Echo (FREE)

- Low Vs. Diamond, The Young Immortals, & IO Echo @ Spaceland (FREE)
- I Make This Sound, Le Switch, The Monolators, & Papillon @ Bordello

The Henry Clay People are fun live and I’ve been meaning to check out Foot Foot all month, but the addition of Le Switch and The Monolators to I Make This Sound’s residency at Bordello is pretty damn appealing.

It’s going to be a great night of music, we always get an excellent crowd of people, and it’s FREE. So come out and support local music, just by putting your face in the place.

Tough call… On one hand, you’ve got The Spires, Big Search, and more at the Lee Hazlewood Tribute Night at Tangier… On the other, there’s the start of Letting Up Despite Great Faults residency at The Eagle Rock Bowling & Drinking Club with Princeton. As they said in Miller’s Crossing, look into yeh heart…

That’s it. Did I miss anything? Please lemme know.
