#1 Potty Mouth + Colleen Green + Upset - Bootleg - Monday - October 26 - 2015 A.D.

A super solid 1-2-3 punkster popster lineup tonight at Bootleg. Potty Mouth + Colleen Green + Upset all play and they are all GOOD.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B.

Exhibit C.

The case rests.

#2 King Khan & BBQ Show - Teragram Ballroom - Wednesday - October 28 - 2015 A.D.

King Khan & BBQ Show is a crazy band and tight as hell. See them destroy Teragram (let's hope not literally but I never know with those dudes). Peach Kelli Pop opens and you really must read these words I wrote about her. At once!

#3 Knuckle Puck + Sorority Noise - The Roxy - Wednesday - October 28 - 2015 A.D.

Knuckle Puck (click that to learn more about their goodness) and Sorority Noise (click that too, please, I thank you) are two very fine bands. Don't take my word for it if you don't want to. Listen to these two songs I've conveniently posted for you below. I bet they make you want to see them play at The Roxy on Wednesday (and Thursday at Chain Reaction) and if not, well, you just don't like super solid punkster pop and I disagree but I guess I respect that, man.

#4 Sean Nicholas Savage - The Smell - Friday - October 30 - 2015 A.D.

Sean Nicholas Savage is THE CHILLEST. End post.

#5 Joyce Manor + Girlpool - The Fonda - Saturday - October 31 - 2015 A.D.

The last time I saw Joyce Manor (they were great) I was with my little kids and a lady puked her shit right next to my 7 year old. Read more about that really great day. At once!

Girlpool open. File Under: A Good Band.

Other notable shows this week = Passion Pit at The Wiltern+ The Nightmare Before Christmas at Hollywood Bowl + The Day of Shred at The Observatory + FIDLAR at The Regent + Melvins at The Echo + Ceremony at Chain Reaction + Cheatahs at The Echo + Matt Pond PA at The Echo + Xiu Xiu at Hollywood Forever + Failure at The Regent + Madonna (who?) at The Forum + No Joy at Bardot
