The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Freak Out In A Moonage Daydream...")

Let me tell you: I am infinitely fucking charmed by loud music and drunken stumbling and byob art galleries and old guys who own curious record stores and malt liquor energy drinks and candy cigarettes and running into people on the street who have played jesus christ in made-for-tv movies.

When they all come together at once, it feels just like home and I love it with a heart like the sun...

Here’s what this week is looking like in local music:

Monday, March 3
- Warpaint, Micky Adams, & Eagle Winged Palace @ Bordello
- The Airborne Toxic Event & The Henry Clay People @ The Troubadour (SOLD OUT)
- Voxhaul Broadcast, Cavil at Rest, Saint Motel, & Working for a Nuclear Free City @ Spaceland (FREE)

Tonight’s show at The Troubadour with The Airborne Toxic Event and The Henry Clay People is sold-out, so I hope you bought tickets in advance.

If you didn't, I don’t know any of the bands playing the free residencies (though will likely see The Chapin Sisters when they play with Everest next week), but mean to check out Eagle Winged Palace, the new band from some of the folks from The Prix.

Sad to miss Jax's b-day party. You'll have to get my licks in for me, Fielder. I think it is 24 punches this year.
