There are a BUNCH of really good shows this week. I don't know why. South by So What, maybe.

Let's talk about five of these good shows right quick. But be sure to stick around for the ÔÇťother notable shows this week" section below because all the musical goodness going on just might blow your mind to Mars, man.

Long. Live. Musical. Goodness.

#1 Weezer (free) - Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ - Tuesday - March 22 - 2016 A.D.

Weezer (I think I've heard of them) play a free show at some Red Bull pop-up space or something on Tuesday. You had to RSVP if you want to go. This is the new Weezer video that has the 'damn Daniel' dudes in it for some reason. What, was Hurley unavailable?

#2 At the Drive-In (reunion) - The Fonda - Wednesday - March 23 - 2016 A.D.

Speaking of old, At the Drive-In are back at it again with the reuniting emo bands. They play The Fonda (which I first spelled The Fonday before just correcting it but I think I like The Fonday better) on Wednesday and The Observatory the night before.

#3 Sunflower Bean - The Echo - Thursday - March 24 - 2016 A.D.

NYC's Sunflower Bean is the dopest band. You should see them immediately or, at the very least, on Thursday at The Echo. Weaves opens. They're dope too.

#4 Joanna Newsom - The Orpheum Theatre - Friday/Saturday - March 25/26 - 2016 A.D.

Joanna Newsom plays her first headlining shows in LA in almost 6 years at The Orpheum on Friday and Saturday. She's good. Go see her. There shall be harps. Always. Forever. Amen.

#5 Citizen - The Teragram Ballroom - Friday - March 25 - 2016 A.D.

This whole lineup is SICK. If you like the melodic punk rock (I do!) this is the show for you this week. Citizen + Turnover + Sorority Noise + Milk Teeth play Teragram on Friday (and The Glass House on Wednesday). Come early. Stay late. Stacked bill. All around. So help me blob.

Please enjoy listening to two of my favorite albums of 2015 A.D.

Other notable shows this week = Ra Ra Riot at Teragram Ballroom + Yuck at Echoplex + Wolfmother at The Grammy Museum + Sophie at El Rey Theatre + Ducktails at Fais Do-Do + Upset at Programme Skate & Sound + DJ Daphni (Caribou) at a Secret Location + Greg Dulli at Teragram Ballroom + Rob Crow's Gloomy Place at The Echo + Smashing Pumpkins and Liz Phair at The Theatre at Ace + PINS at Bootleg + Coheed & Cambria at Hollywood Palladium + Lust for Youth at Teragram Ballroom + At the Drive-In at The Observatory + Faust at Union Nightclub + Plague Vendor at Amoeba + Dave Chappelle at Hollywood Palladium

Whew! I told you there were a BUNCH of good shows this week. Hopefully next time you'll believe me. Oh My Rockness is a music blob you can #TRUST

Have fun out there.

Be excellent to each other.

Party on, dudes.
