South By So What. There are plenty of good shows going on this week right here in good old Bedford Falls. And here are five of the best of them. Read. Stream. See.

(And if by some chance you are going to SXSW, you really must check out our unofficial SXSW site that lists all the good shows and cool parties because it officially rules.)

#1. Dave Chappelle - Arlington Theatre - Wed - March 18 - 2015 A.D.

Let's start with a show that's not even in LA. That sounds fun. Did you know Dave Chappelle recently announced that he's playing two surprise sets at The Arlington tonight? Did you know that's in Santa Barbara? Did you even know we listed comedy shows on Oh My Rockness? Oh, it's true. We do. Both of these shows are sold-out - but where there's a will - there's a pay.

#2. The Both - Largo - Thurs/Fri - March 19/20th - 2015 A.D.

The Both = Aimee Mann (that hardest two names for anyone to spell correctly the very first time) + Ted Leo (the easiest names ever). Together, The Both (tee-hee) play two shows at Largo. Consider going to one of them. A double pleasure's waitin' for you at this one.

#3. Tijuana Panthers - The Echo - Fri/Sat - March 20/21st - 2015 A.D.

Long Beach sunshine psych punks made good, Tijuana Panthers are now big time enough to headline TWO shows at The Echo this week. You see, kids? Hard work does pay off. All of life's problems are solved and you'll never feel anything resembling pain again after you've headlined two shows at The Echo.

#4. This Will Destroy You / Cymbals Eat Guitars - The Roxy - Fri - March 20th - 2015 A.D.

San Marcos, TX's This Will Destroy You (click if you like eight-year-old band profiles) have been slinging euphoric instrumental post-rock goodness for a long time - just a few short years after Explosions in the Sky sort of did it first, in fact. But it still gets me every time. And Staten Island's Cymbals Eat Guitars (that links to a five-year-old band profile - oh well - consider it a time capsule) are simply one of the finest indie rock bands playing the game, son. A double pleasure's waitin' for you at this one.

#5. Of Montreal - The Regent/Largo - Sun/Mon - March 22/23rd - 2015 A.D.

LIARS. THIS BAND IS FROM ATHENS, GEORGIA.
