Tonight in L.A. (October 18, 2012)

Staring at the concert calendar has me a bit jealous that I'm in NYC for CMJ as there is a handful of sonic dopeness hitting you Los Angelenos tonight.  

From the massive wobble and bass drops of Bassnectar, Gramatik and Gladkill at Hollywood Palladium to the free indie sounds of Diamond Rings at Amoeba Records - Thursday night is looking good.

The lucky and informed patrons of Troubadour will be indulged by the lovely ZZ Ward - as she headlines a sold out show just two days after the release of her record.  AB & The Sea and Jared Lee support.  Another lovely vocalist - Twin Shadow takes his talent to Fonda Theatre with support from Haim and KCRW's Mario Cotto.  Can't go wrong their either.

For those that work traditional hours and thus might miss Diamond Rings free show at Amoeba - have no fear, they play Mayan later at night with Stars.    While there is not much other music to catch in the downtown neighborhood - head up the 101 to Silverlake or Echo Park and you 'll find The Whigs and The Record Company rocking the Bootleg Bar, comedian Neil Hamburger celebrating 5 years of laughter with friends at The Satellite and Echoplex busting open their new Thursday night FREE speakeasy. 

Other notables include Kendrick Lamar at Fox Theater in Pomona, Los Campesinos! at El Rey Theatre and the weekly VS dance party at The Central SAPC.   We're giving away a pair of tickets for Los Campesinos! so holler at or shout us out on twitter if you're interested.   For a full list of shows - see below.
