Let's talk about some good shows happening in the greater better magical LA area this week

and then let's talk about something else do u like games and/or films and/or food? Cool cool cool.

#1 Jim Adkins - Hollywood Forever Cemetery - Tuesday - July 28 - 2015 A.D.

Emotive Jimmy Eat World frontman Jim Adkins plays for a bunch of dead people at Hollywood Forever and good news the living are totally invited too. Get there early or get stuck in The Middle.

#2 Jamie xx - Echoplex - Tuesday - July 28 - 2015 A.D.

Jamie, of the xx family, plays Echoplex. Expect some big time sexy beats and a totally sold-out situation. But if you don't have tickets, that's OK, where there's a will there's a pay.

#3 Melt Banana - The Roxy - Friday - July 31 - 2015 A.D.

Perhaps you'd like to get your face melted off this week? If so, do I have a treat for you. Japan noise band Melt Banana (and TORCHE) play The Roxy and if you don't bring earplugs to this one you're a sick twisted monster and don't want to one day hear the sweet cries of your cute smelly grandchildren. Safety first, yo. Magnets, yo.

#4 De La Soul - Annenberg Space for Photography (free) - Saturday - August 1 - 2015 A.D.

De La Soul is a legendary hip-hop crew. You know this. But did you know they are playing Annenberg Space for Photography this week? Did you also know it's free (w/ RSVP)? Finally, have you ever even heard of Annenberg Space for Photography? You have now.

#5 LVL UP - VLHS Warehouse - Sunday - August 2 - 2015 A.D.

You may not be up on LVL UP but you should be (and I should mind my own business) because this new-ish Brooklyn band is really good. Go see them at the small-ish VLHS Warehouse in Pomona this week so one day you can maybe impress someone by saying that you did. The excellent Upset also play. What a day!

Other notable shows this week = The Kills at the El Rey and The Glass House + Dashboard Confessional at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater + HEEMS at Echoplex + Reggie Watts at El Cid + Andrew Bird at Largo + Cymbals Eat Guitars at The Regent Theater + Wye Oak at Hollywood Forever + Baths at The Echo + High on Fire at Echoplex + Porcelain Raft at The Echo + HARD SUMMER at Pomona Fairplex + Allah-las at Teragram Ballroom + Rush at The Forum + Basement at Mayan Theater + Whirr at The Echo
