Let's talk about some good shows happening in/around/above/below Los Angeles this week.

For fun!

And then let's talk about whatever else is on your mind.

#1 Waxahatchee - Cinefamily - Monday - March 7 - 2016 A.D.

Come for the ennui soaked indie pop sounds of Waxahatchee and stay for a screening of Terrence Malick's 1978 cinematic classic "Days of Heaven." It's a (good) band and a (good) movie, man.

#2 Burger Records + The Observatory 5 Year Anniversary - The Observatory - All Week - 2016 A.D.

Burger Records and The Observatory celebrates five years of shredding in Santa Ana with a week-long birthday bash. Bands playing = Slowdive + Thee Oh Sees + Crystal Castles, Beach Fossils, The Orwells, Tijuana Panthers, Shannon and the Clams + lots more! Peep the full lineup here.

#3 Animal Collective - The Fonda - Tues/Wed - March 8/9 - 2016 A.D.

The mighty Animal Collective play two shows at The Fonda this week (I think I can smell the Mari-Huana already) and they're both sold-out so I really hope you got tickets but if you didn't please remember the Golden Rule: where there's a will - there's a pay. Good luck. I'm in your corner. You can do it. I believe in you. (I'd give you my +1 but I already promised it to Billy Bong Thornton, man.)

#4 Jose Gonzalez - Walt Disney Concert Hall - Friday - March 11 - 2016 A.D.

Swedish singer/songwriter Jose Gonzalez plays the music of Donald Duck at Walt Disney Concert Hall tonight. Just kidding about Donald Duck. Please don't go expecting to hear the music of a cartoon duck, no matter how cute and irascible he may be. That was just an online joke to keep this really great weekly digital feature #light. Mr. Gonzalez will be playing his own material which concerns a mouse named Mickey.

#5 Force Field PR Turns 10 - The Echo - Saturday - March 12 - 2016 A.D.

Force Field celebrates ten years of being a PR company with a straight RAGER at The Echo on Saturday w/ Lightning Bolt + Frankie Rose + Dent May + La Sera + Terry Malts + Wax Idols + more!

Other notable shows = St. Lucia at The Fonda + Eleanor Friedberger at The Satellite + Dean Blunt at Echoplex + Chon at The Glass House + Wolf Eyes at The Observatory + Dunes at Non Plus Ultra + Pure Bathing Culture at The Echo

OK. Those are some good shows happening this week. Hope it helps! Have fun out there!
