The Monday Show Low Down (Or "I Don't Remember There Being A Pegacorn In Genesis...")

Last Wednesday night at The Echo was great fun with The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra and friends. Lots of good folks out, too.

Here's what this week is looking like:

Monday, December 1
- The Movies, Eagle & Talon, The Lemurs, & The Wrong Way Driver @ Spaceland
- Sean Carnage Presents Tlaxieu Music Machine, Blue Glasses, E&E, & more @ Pehrspace
- The Color Turning, Sputnik Monroe, & Violent Soho @ The Silver Lake Lounge (FREE)
- The Sixth Chamber, Harlequin Jones, Electric Russia, & Peter Cruz @ Mr T’s Bowl
- WEAVE, We Are The World, Fools Gold, Rainbow Arabia @ The Echo
- Herbaliser, J Boogie @ Echoplex

You really fucking need to be out tonight at The Movies with Eagle & Talon and more at Spaceland for FREE.

Tuesday, December 2
- No Age @ The Troubadour (FREE)
- Wallburds, Victoria, Black Tales, & JJ Fats @ The Silver Lake Lounge
- The Sisters of Mercy @ The Henry Fonda Music Box
- Smashing Pumpkins @ The Gibson Ampitheatre
- Gary Jules @ The Hotel Café
- Indie 103 present Check One Twosday: The Gray Kid, Love Grenades, Karin Tatoyan, Light @ Echoplex

Yeah, the fact that The Sisters of Mercy are playing had me spending way too much time looking up silly post-apocalyptic goth videos on YouTube today. Like this one...

But, sure, there are probably a few other shows worth considering first. (No offense to any vampires out there.)

Wednesday, December 3
- Eagle Winged Palace Release Event w/ Super Karma, Rocking Horse People, Amanda Jo Williams, & Jim Hanft @ The Silver Lake Lounge
- Evangenitals, Evertheory, Die Rockers Die, & The Health Club @ Mr T’s Bowl

- Spain, The Californian, Breakfast All Day, & David Dyas @ Bordello
- Low End Theory: School of Seven Bells, Gangi, & Orko Eloheim @ The Airliner
- Mack Winston and the Reflections & Supernova @ 3 of Clubs

Eagle Winged Palace is celebrating a vinyl release on Thursday night with Super Karma and more... (I'm ipod djing a lot of local stuff between sets.)

The Afternoons show with new group Useless Keys (who are comprised of three local acts you probably liked) should also be great.

Thursday, December 4
- The Sea and Cake & The Uglysuit @ Troubadour - Fig 8 Slo-Mo @ Mr T’s Bowl

- Respect @ The Echo
- Relentless Seven @ Spaceland

I've been meaning to see Olin and The Moon after hearing Mouse say good things about them...

I try to catch sad and fantastic pop act The Spires every time they come down from the wilds of Ventura County... They're playing with the also quite good Frankel and Franklin For Short at Pehrspace.

Sucks that it means I've got to miss Thailand!

- Gunferty, The Monolators, The Karabal Nightlife, Ema and the Ghosts, & The Sweet Hurt @ Pehrspace

Great line-up over at Pehrspace on Saturday night... Multiple reasons to go and BYOB.

(You know, I've somehow never caught The Sweet Hurt before, though I've seen lead Wendy Want perform with about six or eight other local acts.)

Sunday, December 7
- Little Joy, The Dead Trees, & Red Cortez @ The Troubadour
- Pontiak & Biblical Proof of UFOs @ Relax Bar
- Friendly Fires @ Spaceland
- Part Time Punks w/ Free Moral Agents & Jesus Makes The Shotgun Sound @ The Echo
- The Weepies @ The Hotel Café

Haven't heard headliners Little Joy before, but I keep hearing great things about the newly-rechristened Red Cortez (formerly The Weather Underground).

That's it... It takes a few hours to put together this weekly update and hell if some show doesn't always slip by. If missed something, please lemme know.
