The talk of the town for the last week at the shows I've been to has been all about the extravaganza on Monday where Seasons comes back to the stage after a short hiatus, emerging out of the fog like in the picture to the right, performing after a screening of Pass The Music at Echoplex. And with Manhattan Murder Mystery, Torches and Body Parts on the bill, this would be the show of the week if there weren't so many 'shows-of-the-week' this week.
Our buddies, The Lonely Wild have a show out at Federal Bar on Tuesday night at the Buzzbands LA event starring The Rudy Friedman Orchestra. With The New Limb as an added attraction this becomes a top entry. Another special show is the Spaceland Under The Stars free outdoor evening concert downtown on Thursday at Pershing Square featuring two very hot bands at the moment, The Dead Ships and NO.
Pehrspace has a good show on Friday night with WALK and Young Empress for an impressive line up. Then Saturday I have my Feed Your Head show at Lot 1 with Saint Sea Hat and The WildBunch, along with the debut of John Seasons new solo act, and Ryan Ellis who played a great set for my show back in March. That also happen to be the day of The 3rd New Los Angeles Folk Festival in Altadena at Zorthian Ranch Farm which has to have one of the greatest line ups of any festival this summer. Bummer I have to miss it. Sunday you can catch Warm Weather at Bootleg Bar.
