Let’s talk about GOOD shows - not BAD - because we already know that most things suck, thank you very much. Oh My Rockness prefers to remain in the LIGHT.

#1. Cherry Glazerr - The Echo - Friday - February 13 - 2015 A.D.

The #2 hardest working band in LA in 2014 is the #1 show to see this week (granted, this thing you’re reading is ordered chronologically but please pay that no heed). Cherry Glazerr make sublime lo-fi punk and their secret, as far as I know, is not that they practice Santeria.

#2. Joyce Manor - The Glass House - Friday/Saturday - February 13/14 - 2015 A.D.

Reigning pop punk kings of Los Angeles (says the Greater Southern California Pop Punk Association’s arbiters of taste) Joyce Manor play two shows this week. Go to one. Go to both. Sing along confidently. And dance like nobody cares because nobody does.

#3. The Dodos - The Roxy - Friday - February 13 - 2015 A.D.

Sweet jingle-jangle punk duo The Dodos has been laying down the underrated HITS for a decade now. Time, please stop passing please. Here’s an oldie - but a goddamn goodie.

#4. Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake - The Satellite/Alex’s Bar - Friday/Saturday - February 13/14 - 2015 A.D.

John Reis (of Drive Like Rocket From The Hot Snakes) & The Blind Shake (of...well...The Blind Shake) wants to play surf music for you twice this week. Knowing the Swami, I’m sure he’ll figure out how to make surf music SHRED.

#5. Dr. Dog - The Wiltern/The Glass House - Friday/Sunday - February 13/15 - 2015 A.D.

Dr. Dog? Whoa. That’s one smart pooch!
