Let's talk about the good shows going down this week. And then let's talk about something else. What other interests do you have besides going to see bands? Cool cool cool. That all sounds really interesting and delightful and good.

But moving on...

#1. Fartbarf - El Cid - Friday - May 15 - 2015 A.D.

With a name like Fartbarf they gotta be good!

#2. Hutch and Kathy - The Echo - Friday - May 15 - 2015 A.D.

When they're not busy delighting the world as The Thermals they're just Hutch and Kathy. And these two have been making super catchy power rock songs for quite some time (as the seven-year-old video I chose to post below suggests).

#3. Fat White Family - Troubadour - Friday - May 15 - 2015 A.D.

This London band gets CRAZY live. Expect the unexpected and bring a poncho or something just in case you come in contact with various body spillages because Fat White Family aren't fucking around up there.

#4. Ex Hex - The Roxy - Saturday - May 16 - 2015 A.D.

Mary Timony brings her punk rock band to tear the roof off The Roxy and play songs from Ex Hex's latest album “Rips." That they do.

#5. Nothing - Secret Location - Saturday - May 16 - 2015 A.D.

Super solid Philly band Nothing play a show somewhere on Saturday but I can't get into specifics. But don't worry. Buy tickets to this and you'll find out just in the nick of time. In the meantime, please enjoy this song. IT SHREDS.

Other notable shows = Xiu Xiu at The Observatory + Reggie Watts at El Cid + The Wombats at The Fonda + Elvis Perkins at Hollywood Forever Cemetery + Fred Falke at Sound Nightclub + Corners at The Echo + Woods at The Echo + Fool's Gold at Troubadour + iLoveMakonnen at El Rey Theatre + Muse at Mayan Theater + Psycho California Fest at The Observatory + The Magician at Exchange LA + KROQ Weenie Roast + Two Gallants at The Roxy + The Juan Maclean at The Regent Theater

Cool cool cool. So what else is going on?
