Radio Free Silver Lake and promoter Goldenvoice have tickets to two fantastic shows this weekend. Details on how to enter are below. Hanni El Khatib plays this Friday October 25 at the El Rey Theater, with Bass Drum Of Death and Tijuana Panthers opening. El Khatib closes out the North American leg of his tour in support of Head in the Dirt (produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys) with a hometown show in Los Angeles. The San Francisco-born skater plays rowdy jangly garage rock influenced in equal parts by garage rock, 1960’s R&B and skate rat punk rock.
On Saturday night BOY takes the stage at the Fonda, Jeremy Messersmith opens the evening. The Swiss-German girl duo BOY bounce their smart and sexy pop to the Fonda on the momentum of the summer hit video “Little Numbers.” Comparisons to Phoenix, Bon Iver and Feist may not capture the intelligence and joyfulness of this duo, but they do indicate what an excellent show is in store for Saturday night.
