This week has a tasty local treat every single night. Easier to pick a night to take off than to choose which shows to attend. From The Lonely Wild and Haunted Summer (at right) to Andy Clockwise and Wages, punctuated by a date at Teragram Ballroom with the legendary Patti Smith.
On Monday I'd head over to The Echo for the Oyster Kids residency since they've put The Lonely Wild and Fakers on their bill. Tuesday brings Winter to the Ducktails show at Bootleg Bar, along with an Ablebody Record Release, and Golden Animals and Jason Simon are at Harvard & Stone.
Andy Clockwise holds his final Los Angeles show of the year at The Echo on Wednesday before heading off to Australia to finish his latest album. Another of the week's highlights promises to be on Thursday night at El Cid where three terrific singer/songwriters, Annie Hardy (of Giant Drag), Joel Jerome (of Dios) and Josiah Mazzaschi (of Light FM) show off their goods as solo artists.
On Friday Haunted Summer play a real hometown show in Highland Park at The Hi Hat, with gorgeous projections by the Mad Alchemy Analog Liquid Light Show (seen in above photo) to compliment the liquid dreaminess of their music. Other distractions that night include Gregg Garvey at The Echo and Dear Lemon Trees at Hotel Café.
Back to El Cid on Saturday to catch up with the ultra-creative Wages, with Cassini and Nightjacket also on board. MUMBLR (on tour), LA Font, The Black Heartthrobs and Doctrin are at The Hi Hat. on Sunday. Okay, what can I miss? None of them. I'll give it my best shot.
