The Monday Show Low Down (Or "Your Eyes Have Two Different Kinds of Stars...")

Over the last few days, I've caught great sets from Fol Chen, The Spires, The Henry Clay People, and The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra -- and the best shows I've seen yet from the last two, at that.

That's on top of all the excellent shows earlier last week... Fun times. And this week looks as good or better.

Monday, June 30
- The French Semester, The Coral Sea, Teddy's Cheer Club, & Rumi @ Mr T's Bowl (FREE)
- Spider Problem, Halloween Swim Team, & Letron @ The Silver Lake Lounge (FREE)

- Indie 103.1 Presents...Check One Two Mondays w/ Iglu & Hartly and Kenan Bell @ The Viper Room
- Afternoons, The Happy Hollows, The Movies, & The Boxing Lesson @ Spaceland (FREE)

Tonight represents a really tough call between The French Semester with The Coral Sea versus Afternoons with The Movies and The Happy Hollows. Either way, you can't lose...

Tuesday is all about The Mae Shi, Death To Anders, Die Rockers Die, and Light FM at Spaceland. Both Death To Anders and Light FM should be busting out some new material.

Thursday, July 3

We're helping promote The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra CD Release Event on Thursday night w/ Fol Chen, The Stevenson Ranch Davidians, and Summer Darling at The Echo.

Here are three reasons why you should come out: 1) the EP is really damn good, 2) the band has gotten really damn good live, and 3) you're not working the next day.

Also? Fol Chen...

Friday, July 4

- Riot Grrrl Independence Day Carnival w/ Bruise Violet, The Pristines, Las Sangronas Y El Cabron, The Sirens, Motormouth Maybelles, Mermaid, Sasha And The Shamrocks, No Maam, All Neon Like, Clapsclap, Zombelle, Anus Kings, & Fallopian @ The Smell
- The Voyeurs, The Grizzly Owls, Terrapin, Seasons, & more @ Mr T's Bowl

Fuck the BBQ. Here's your best (and perhaps last) chance to see Castledoor play a small venue.
