#2 Julien Baker - Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock - Friday - February 26 - 2016 A.D.

See rising up-and-coming buzzy singer/songwriter Julien Baker on Friday at a (relatively) small space (in this case, Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock) and maybe someday you can impress someone by saying you once did.

Julien. Baker. Is. Good.

#3 Bill Callahan (smog) - Hollywood Forever Cemetery - Friday - February 26 - 2016 A.D.

Bill Callahan, the man also sometimes known as smog (click that to read a profile I wrote on smog almost 12 years ago - yeesh), plays two shows at Hollywood Forever on Friday and people are DYING to get into them. File Under: Quiet Neighbors.
