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

Everything dedicated to David Bowie.

The Starman.

Forever.

#1 Fartbarf - The Observatory - Tuesday - January 12 - 2016 A.D.

Because with a name like Fartbarf they gotta be good!

PS. Nobunny headlines this show at The Observatory on Tuesday but they neither have Fart nor Barf in their name so they don't get top billing as far as this music blob is concerned.

#2 Rat Fist - Bootleg (FREE) - Thursday - January 14 - 2016 A.D.

Because with a name like Rat Fist they gotta be good.

PS. Audiodamn headlines this free show at Bootleg on Thursday but they neither have Rat nor Fist in their name, so...well, you know the rest.

#3 Barry Johnson & Frances Quinlan - Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock - Thursday - January 14 - 2016 A.D.

Barry Johnson and Frances Quinlan are members of two of the better bands playing the game today (Joyce Manor and Hop Along, respectively). See them do their sweet solo thing at Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock on Thursday.

#4 Sun Kil Moon - The Regent Theater - Thursday - January 14 - 2016 A.D.

Oh, whatsoever will that pesky Mark Kozelek say between his beautiful songs THIS time. See Sun Kil Moon at The Regent on Thursday and find out. Hard to believe the dude who made one of the best Christmas albums of recent times (especially this jam) also wrote a song called “War on Drugs: Suck My Cock" but I guess he's on his own journey, man.

#5 Ty Segall & The Muggers - Teragram Ballroom - Friday/Saturday - January 15/16 - 2016 A.D.

These two Ty Segall shows at Teragram shall be the shit.

That's it.

Bye bye!

Other notable shows this week = Reggie Watts at El Cid + Quilt at The Echo + Langhorne Slim & The Law at Teragram Ballroom + Erykah Badu at The Observatory + Dogs on Acid at VLHS Warehouse + Last Lizard (fka Dirty Beaches) at Cinefamily + Melted at Lot 1 Cafe + El Ten Eleven at The Satellite + Van Morrison at The Shrine Auditorium + Avi Buffalo at Bootleg

SEE ALL OF THIS WEEK'S SHOWS

That's it. Go see good shows.

David Bowie. Such a big loss.

The stars look very different today.
