20 Good Shows To See in LA This Week
April 10 - April 16 / 2017 A.D.
Not familiar with this festival but I believe it's some type of rhythmic ceremonial ritual of sorts.
Regardless, it's pretty under-the-radar and could use all the press it can get.
And this local DIY music blob is here to save the day.
(here is a dumb video about dumb Coachella outfit ideas)
Phil Elverum is a songwriting legend.
See him play songs from his haunting & exquisite new album "A Crow Looked At Me" at Hollywood Forever.
Hearts are heavy.
3. Radiohead play Santa Barbara Bowl on Tuesday, April 11th
(this show is mad sold-out but you can try getting tickets here)
Rumor has it this band is actually from Athens and that's in GEORGIA.
THEY PROBABLY DON'T EVEN SPEAK FRENCH-CANADIAN.
Of Montreal exposed!
"Understanding In a Car Crash" is a pretty good song.
Noodles. Math. Crazy rhythms. It's Minus the Bear!
BORN 2001 A.D.
Be sure to get there on time to see Beach Slang too, yo.
7. Crystal Castles play The Glass House on Wednesday, April 12th
Beware the band that throws crystals in glass houses....
This show is sold-out (because peeps are dying to know just how much breakage there will be).
Try getting tickets here.
Or, just go see them at Coachella.
8. The New Pornographers play The Theatre at Ace on Wednesday, April 12th
Despite the name, I hear this is a very tasteful show (although there may be hand claps).
You can't stop Carl Newman. Your stage can only hope to contain his crew.
Waxahatchee opens / Waxahatchee rules.
9. Future Islands play The Roxy on Thursday, April 13th
Never. Forget. This. Performance.
(sold-out - try here)
