The Monday Show Low Down (Or "I Woke Up In The Past Then Realized It Was Today...")

Nope. Not going to Coachella this weekend. I went a few years back when it was the amazing line-up of Radiohead, Broken Social Scene, The Pixies, Belle & Sebastian, The Black Keys, The Cure, Air, and more, which was fantastic. And we stayed at an old Howard Hughes’ bachelor pad with a pool and a Jacuzzi and all the style in the world.

Since then, the line-ups haven’t grabbed me as much, someone else has snagged that damn house, and I’ve been, oh, a little more focused on local LA music -- also? lazy... -- so I’ve skipped.

If you’re heading out, have a great time. Definitely some great shows in town before the festival.

Monday, April 21

If you find the Radars To The Sky residency w/ Rademacher and You, Met, & Iowa at The Echo too crowded tonight because of their unannounced “special guests” (I’m working from the assumption this is the band what was signed last week) then it’s worth checking out last minute adds Amnion at Spaceland.

JOE! You are the sweetest! I didn't know you were going to put the info about my show up here!! I've been so behind about putting press out for the show. :) that I know, I just found out about 10 minutes ago that my show has been moved to JUNE 14TH!! So...if you can please take back all those lovely things you said, and save them for a posting in June that would be great so that if anyone had planned on going to the show, they won't go and find that no one is there!
It's actually a good thing the show was moved to June because that gives me more time to make it better! :)
