The Monday Show Low Down (Or "All The Donuts Have Names Like Prostitutes...")

Intro goes here. This is where the intro goes when the intro goes in. Intro goes here. This is where the intro goes when the intro goes in. Third verse? Same as the first...

DECISION:
The FREE line-up at The Echo is almost frightening tonight: Death to Anders, One Trick Pony, Sarah (The Happy Hollows) Negahdari, & Mad Gregs. Even though it's going to be all acoustic, it should be packed... Hopefully people will, y'know, shut the fuck up for it.

DECISION:
The free Is Good Music Presents show over at Bordello sounds great on Tuesday night.

- The Hives & Eagles of Death Metal @ The Mayan

DECISION:
I don't listen to the radio a hell of a lot, so I only hear KROQ when I work out in my company's gym... (Which is not often and seems to revolve around a lot of Social Distortion.) But people tell me that their Locals Only show is pretty good and the fact that they're putting on a free show on Thursday at Safari Sam's with The Western States Motel and The French Semester is goddamn impressive to me. Both bands deserve a lot more attention.

It's The Western States Motel's EP release party that night and I've heard it and heart. It's smarty pop music just like you like it.
