10. Metallica play the Rose Bowl on Saturday, July 29th.

Dreaming we'll get this Metallica.

But know we'll probably get this Metallica instead.

11. Devendra Banhart plays The Broad on Saturday, July 29th.

We'll let The Broad tell you about this good one. They're better at it.

"The second program in Summer Happenings at The Broad takes its title from the work of Takashi Murakami, who has long found inspiration in the collaged cultures that emerged in Japan at the end of the Tokugawa period of isolation. Strange Forest presents artists who work with those traditional and Western influences in real-time. The evening opens with Tokiko Ihara, who plays the Sho, a meditative traditional woodwind instrument. This contrasts with the blistering female drum and guitar duo Afrirampo and the solo artist Oorutaichi, known for his "drifting folklore music." Those Japan-based groups are joined by ex-DNA member Ikue Mori and Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto. The evening also features L.A. based Devendra Banhart, whose last album "Ape in the Pink Marble" was deeply inspired by Japanese culture, and onetime Ponytail member Dustin Wong in collaboration with Takako Minekawa."

12. Waxahatchee / Cayetana / Snail Mail play The Regent Theater on Saturday, July 29th.

Three good bands playing one show.

I ❤️ when this happens.
