Emerson Star (at right) have landed a residency at Harvard & Stone every Tuesday this month so there'll be many opportunities to sample their hook-laden indie pop chops. Sung to perfection and draped around some really memorable melodies. Looking forward to An Intimate Evening with Lady Low in Hollywood At Grandpa Johnson's on Thursday. This band just continues to blow my mind with such tight and exciting sets. Besides being a top notch band, they, like Emerson Star, have a remarkable talent for writing catchy tunes. There's also the bonus of Midnight Cities on the same bill.
Lots of my favorite bands are out there this week. yOya are taking part in Monday's David Bowie Tribute at The Echo and Hobart W. Fink play The Satellite on Tuesday. LA River Bend are at Silver Lake Lounge with The Crazy Brave and Livingmore on Wednesday and La Santa Ceclia at a free in-store at Amoeba Music and Wages play Silver Lake Lounge on Thursday.
Saturday offers Feed Your Head presents Alright Alright, Cody Hudock, Malcolm Sosa at Lot 1, while Brendan Eder Ensemble, Colleen Green and Cat 500 form an eclectic bill at Non Plus Ultra. And Pageants are out at Resident on Sunday.
