The Monday Show Down (Or “I Hadn’t Seen You In So Long I Didn’t Know You Changed The Color Of Your Hair”)

Hey, so I’m not sure if you realized this yet, but there aren’t any shows going on this Thursday night...

It’s kind of strange, but going over the schedules for all the venues in town, I noticed that none of them had any bands playing that night. Kind of a rare occurrence, really, so I suggest you find something else to do with your time.

Maybe share the evening with family and friends, instead?

Monday, November 19
- Indie 103.1’s Check One.. Two w/ Pop Noir, Sam Sparro, On Blast, & Ari Shine @ The Viper Room
- Restaurant & The Strange Boys @ The Echo (FREE)
- Cydney Robinson, Holly Palmer & Pedestrian @ Bordello
- Softlightes, Arizona, & Unbusted @ Spaceland (FREE)
- Sean Carnage Presents: Bizzart, Rheteric, Soft Fangs, Big Epoch, & Married in Berdchiev @ Pehrspace
- Until June, The Quiet, Teaneck, & Service Group @ The Troubadour (FREE)
- Funland with secret guests, Sidekick, Battleflask, & More Than Never @ The Scene (FREE)
- Casxio, B.R.A.M., Letron & Meho Plaza @ The Silver Lake Lounge (FREE)

Restaurant, Casxio, and Softlightes all have Monday night residencies, and there are free shows at The Scene and The Troubadour, too. (I’ll be hiding out doing the final prep for our Tuesday show, though…)

Tuesday, November 20
- Let’s Independent! w/ Marvelous Toy, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, & Hearts of Palm UK @ Boardner’s of Hollywood (FREE)
- 89.9 FM KCRW Presents Merrick, John Gold, Alex Lilly, & Everybody @ Bordello
- Isis @ The Troubadour

- Tall Hands Eyes In Elegance, & The Soft Hands @ The Silver Lake Lounge
- The Front, Tweak Bird, Tsk Tsk, & The Pleasure Boaters @ The Scene

I can say with all certainty that I’ve decided to go to our Let’s Independent! event on Tuesday night at Boardner’s with Marvelous Toy, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and Hearts Of Palm UK.

If you haven’t heard some or all of the acts yet, it’s a good -- and FREE -- opportunity to check some excellent local talent. They’re always a lot of fun, too.

Wednesday, November 21
- Hollowpoints, Broke Til Thursday, Booze Hounds,& Dirty Tactics + Special Guests @ The Scene
- 89.9 FM KCRW Presents Merrick, The Pity Party, Correatown, & Benji Hughes @ Bordello

Spindrift makes music you’d want to listen to while gun-fighting out in the desert… Shame they’re the same night of Correatown’s residency at Bordello, where she’s joined by nice loudies The Pity Party and semi-legendary Benji Hughes.

Friday, November 23

- Club Underground @ The Echo
- White Out w/ Nels Cline, Alasdair Roberts, & Charalambides @ Spaceland
- Cold War Kids @ The Wiltern

I’m still basking in the warm glow left over from Light FM’s performance at Let’s Independent! last month, but have wanted to check out Artichoke, Adeline, and Exitmusic, too.

Saturday, November 24

- Gram Rabbit, Bloodcat Love, & Thee Makeout Party @ Safari Sam's
- Outre @ Pehrspace
- Blue Mash @ Mr T’s Bowl
- White Magic w/ Luke Top & Eric Layer @ The Echo
- Band of Horses @ The Avalon

I’ve been meaning to check out Luke Top after hearing multiple friends extol his virtues, but if you haven’t seen The Happy Hollows, you haven’t, like, lived or something.

Sunday, November 25
- Briony Atkinson @ Tangier
- Cue The Moon @ Mr T’s Bowl
- Part Time Punks @ The Echo
- The Eagle Rock Bowling & Drinking Club w/ Karin Tatoyan, Rademacher, One Trick Pony, & Killsonic @ All-Star Lanes

- Band of Horses @ The Avalon

It’s your last chance to see Karin Tatoyan’s residency at The Eagle Rock Bowling & Drinking Club. Joining her are Fresno’s Rademacher, who were amazing at Spaceland last Sunday night, and One Trick Pony, makers of the prettiest song I’ve heard this year.

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