If ever there was a week to go to a show this would be the week.

You'll see.

20 Good Shows To See in LA This Week

April 17 - April 23 / 2017 A.D.

1. Coachella on April 21st / 22nd / 23rd

Not familiar with this festival but I believe it's some type of rhythmic ceremonial ritual of sorts.

Regardless, it's pretty under-the-radar and could use all the press it can get.

And this local DIY music blob is here to save the day.

2. Car Seat Headrest play The Regent Theater on Monday, April 17th

This song was named by many reputable blobs as one of the best songs of last year.

One of the rare times I agree with the reputable blobs.

3. King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard play The Roxy on Monday, April 17th

Come join these Australian expats on a cosmic journey through physical space and socially constructed time.

It'll be a chill trip.

4. New Order play Santa Barbara Bowl on Tuesday, April 18th

This is the best New Order album.

Please voice your disagreements with the above statement in the comments section this blob has never had.

5. DJ Shadow plays The Fonda Theatre on Tuesday, April 18th (tickets)

Guess who's coming. It's! It's! It's!


Who is he?


6. Future Islands play The Glass House on Wednesday, April 19th

Still love watching this.

Who's that David Letterman guy tho.

7. Mitski plays The Glass House on Thursday, April 20th (tickets)

Mitski is huge now! This show will most probably maybe almost definitely sell out.

If you don't have a ticket you should get one soon.

Here's why: Mitski rules!

8. Jay Som play The Echo on Friday, April 21st (tickets)

Jay Som is the lush DIY post ____ pop project of San Francisco's Melina Duterte.

Think indie pop meets shoegaze meets psych meets a little surf maybe meets good music and you should be on the right track.

9. Pixies at Fox Theater Pomona on Friday, April 21st (tickets)

Here comes your band.
