Written by Patrick McNamara

Let's talk about the dope shows happening this week.

Also, did you know Sunday is Valentine's Day? It's totally true. So make the most of that stupid holiday and go to a good show.

Check out The Rockness Guide to Valentine's Day at your earliest convenience.

I thank you.

#1 Andrew Bird - Teragram Ballroom - Tuesday - February 9 - 2016 A.D.

I'm like Andrew Bird I could fly awayyyyy.*

*please watch this video if you'd like to know the origins of that dumb Andrew Bird joke I always make

#2 Fleetwood Mac Fest - The Fonda Theatre - Tuesday/Wednesday - February 9/10 - 2016 A.D.

This two day tribute to Fleetwood Mac at The Fonda features Joanna Newsom, Cold War Kids, Sarah Silverman, Elvis Perkins, Perry Farrell, Mark Ronson and a bunch more peeps you've probably heard of.

#3 Built to Spill - The Echo - Thursday/Friday/Saturday - February 11/12/13 - 2016 A.D.

This band never ages. Since the very beginning they've always looked like a bunch of old guys.

See Built to Spill play three shows at The Echo this week.

God, I love this song so hard.

#4 Naughty by Nature - The Regent - Thursday - February 11 - 2016 A.D.

Naughty by Nature celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic self-titled debut album. DAMN!

Speaking of songs I love so hard...

If you don't know this classic... it's not a shame... it's a PROBLEM.

#5 Albert Hammond Jr - The Roxy - Wednesday - February 10 - 2016 A.D.

This guy's a total Stroke.

Also, did you know Albert Hammond Jr.'s dad wrote this super solid Olympic DEEP CUT?

Other notable shows = Super Furry Animals at The Roxy + Jukebox the Ghost at The Regent + STRFKR at The Glass House + Hoodie Allen at The Observatory + Meat Wave at Bootleg + Howler at El Cid + Deafheaven at Hollywood Palladium + Flying Lotus at Teragram Ballroom

That's it! And it should be more than enough for you to find your way towards musical goodness.

Have fun out there!
