Let's talk about some good shows happening in LA this week.

#1 Grimes - The Mayan Theater - Monday - November 2 - 2015 A.D.

Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) is GOOD. You heard it here 444th. See her at The Mayan with Nicole Dollanganger - she's so cool….and good.

#2 Dilly Dally - Bootleg - Tuesday - November 3 - 2015 A.D.

I just saw Dilly Dally destroy CMJ. Man, they were GOOD. See the Toronto band at Bootleg and quite possibly see the future of '90s inspired punk grunge rock 'n roll.

#3 Shopping - The Echo - Wednesday - November 4 - 2015 A.D.

I saw London's Shopping band play CMJ too. “Were they good, Oh My Rockness?" Yes. They were good. So help me blob they were good. Read these nice things I said about them recently and then go see them at The Echo (or Friday at The Observatory - whichever venue you prefer). File Under: GOOD.

#4 Eleanor Friedberger - El Cid - Thursday - November 5 - 2015 A.D.

The Fiery Furnaces were a good band (they'll reunite someday - bet). Eleanor Friedberger was one half of Fiery Furnaces. Therefore, Eleanor Friedberger is also GOOD. See her at El Cid. If you're the type that likes seeing good people perform on a stage. (She plays Bardot this week too - that one's free w/ RSVP - so whichever one you want to go to I don't care I just want you to be happy)

#5 EL VY - Troubadour - Saturday + Sunday - November 7/8 - 2015 A.D.

EL VY = dude from The National + dude from Menomena. The National = Good. Menomena = Good. EL VY = _____________! See this brand new band twice at Troubadour. Because you deserve a double dose of goodness every now and then.

Other notable shows this week = Fuzz (w/ Ty Segall) at The Observatory + Kendrick Lamar at The Wiltern + Pure Bathing Culture at The Echo + Sylvan Esso at The Fonda + The Wonder Years at Several Venues + Joey Bada$ at The Belasco + Of Montreal at The Regent + Reptar at Club Bahia + Ms. Lauryn Hill at The Observatory + Beat Connection at The Echo + Lee Ranaldo at The Getty (free) + The Menzingers at Echoplex + Have Mercy at The Roxy + Wax Idols at Complex

Have a nice time at the rock 'n' roll shows! Stare at your phone like a champion out there!
