There are lots of good shows this week but we're going to only highlight five of them. Because how many choices does a person need? This is something In-N-Out discovered long ago. And you like In-N-Out don't you? Of course you do! What kind of monster doesn't like In-N-Out?

Anyway, we're not here to talk about hamburgers. But if you want to meet up later and crush a 4 x 4 together, lemme know.

Presenting: The Five Best Shows This Week

#1 Death Grips - The Glass House - Tuesday - August 25 - 2015 A.D.

A turbulent band like Death Grips is just about the last group I would want playing at a place called The Glass House because they're liable to throw a bunch of stones and break that shit, assuming they show up at all. But, you know, punk rock and anarchy and all that. So let's hope this one goes off without too many hitches because when Death Grips are on they're ON.

#2 King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard - The Echo - Wednesday - August 26 - 2015 A.D.

It's not like King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard can't raise a ruckus either. Their live shows are all kinds of crazy in the very best way. Psych. Swirls. Sweat. Shrieks. Spit. Skin. You could get all of that if you head to The Echo tonight. It'll be a cosmic journey through space and time, man.

#3 Savages - The Roxy - Wednesday - August 26 - 2015 A.D.

UK post ________ rockers Savages play The Roxy and it should be a chilly, haunting, intensely good time and 100% post __________.

#4 Death From Above 1979 - The Forum - Friday - August 28 - 2015 A.D.

Good News! Death From Above 1979 play The Forum tonight! Bad News! Incubus and Deftones are also playing and they are two terrible bands! Oh, well. Can't win 'em all. 1 out of 3 ain't bad.

(sorry to all the Incubus and Deftones fans I may have offended but can I follow up that apology with a question? why are you even reading this?)

#5 Fool's Gold Day Off - Shrine Expo Hall - Saturday - August 29 - 2015 A.D.

Fool's Gold has a big blowout today at Shrine Expo Hall with Action Bronson + A-Trak + a ton more peeps. This starts at 2 PM and goes late so settle yourself in for a long and lovely time.

Other notable shows = Carly Rae Jepsen at The Troubadour + Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear at The Echo + Jenny Lewis at The Observatory + Nick Kroll at The Lyric Theatre + Gothic Tropic at The Satellite + Six Organs of Admittance at Bootleg + Cold Showers at The Echo + Del Tha Funky Homosapien at The Echo + YACHT at The Getty + Melvins at The Observatory + MSTRKRFT at The Regent + Erykah Badu at Hollywood Bowl + Media Jeweler at The Smell
