Oh MY Rockness

P.S. these are the five best shows in the greater and chiller LA area this week.

#1. King Tuff - The Observatory - Wednesday - January 7 - 2015 A.D.

One of the finest garage rockers going for a few years now, His Royal Scuzz King Tuff has finally answered the question that’s been burning in our brain since the beginning. Are you tuff enough to be my band, King Tuff? Yes. Yes. A thousand Fs yes.

#2. Aesop Rock - El Rey + Observatory - Fri/Sat - January 9/10 - 2015 A.D.

Longtime Brooklyn hip-hop extraordinaire Aesop Rock brings the flow twice this week and you can come to both and supply the beats. Here’s a classic AP cut that still holds up.

#3. Young Adults - Jewels Catch One - Friday - January 9 - 2015 A.D

If you’re more into the crunchy post-punk check out up-and-coming Massachusetts band Young Adults. They awesomely describe their sound as being “Shoegazi.” But you may also want to file this under “Good.”

#4. Tamaryn + Puro Instinct + Hibou - The Echo - Sunday - January 11 - 2015 A.D.

I love when three good bands play on the same bill because I prefer not moving once I reach my destination several miles of traffic in the making. The music of Tamaryn (click that to enjoy a 4+ year band profile) + Puro Instinct (click that to also enjoy a 4+ year old band profile) + Hibou (that profile is only from 2013, that one’s alright) has been praised on these digital pages before.

#5. Louis C.K. - The Forum - Sunday - January 11 - 2014 A.D.
