The Tuesday Show Low Down (Or "Like A Unicorn Under a Rainbow on the Moon...")

Hnhh. Maybe I'm just catching some more heavily attended shows lately, but damn if it seems like people are going out more again. The last few times I've been to The Silver Lake Lounge, it's been packed. The last time few times I went to Spaceland, there was a line at the door.

I remember a few months ago, some local nightclub owners and managers were telling me that they could see the effect of the economy, but I swear that ever since Obama won, it feels like people are out and, well, the mood has really changed.

Tuesday, January 13
- Sara Lov, Learning Music, Modwheelmood, & Pink Mochi @ Spaceland
- Check One Twosday w/ Warpaint, Brother Read, & Crooked Cowboy @ Echoplex
- Mike Stinson & Dave Gleason @ Redwood Bar
- Ida Maria & Gliss @ The Viper Room
- Living Dead Lights @ The Troubadour
- Andrew Jackson Jihad, Dan Janish, K Gholie, Roman Candles, & Joyce Manor @ Echo Curio

DECISION:
I've been meaning to check out Sara Lov, Learning Music, and Pink Mochi, separately, so it's quite helpful that they're all playing together.

I haven't seen local act Les Blanks play yet, but have seen some amazing live performances by both "gregorian punk" Death to Anders and Long Beach's finest The Soft Hands.
