Tonight in L.A. (October 5, 2012) - L.A.'s Concerts Tonight

For first Friday - the concert calendar is filthy - from the guitars of The Black Keys at Staples Center to the bass and beats of Big Gigantic and Griz at House of Blues on Sunset.  Download Big G's "Let's Go" to amplify your weekend - whether you're at the show or not.

For the festival goers - Culture Collide has a host of talent playing.  I like Taix's Champagne Room the best with Mr. Little Jeans, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Magic Wands and Voxhaul Broadcast.  Dangerbird artists Royal Teeth are the highlight on a bill that includes School of Seven Bells at The Echoplex.Your Culture Collide wristband also gets you into 826LA for some laughter courtesy of Natasha Leggero and friends. 

For the Hollywood bound - Treasure Fingers puts the speakers to work at Avalon and Dam Funk does the same at The Fonda as support for Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.  Just down the block - new school rockers meet 90s stars as Dead Sara and Neon Trees support The Offspring at Hollywood Palladium.

Westsiders can enjoy First Friday's with a variety of performances and art spectacles - including Dustbowl Revival at Joe's, or go a little further south and jam out with Particle at Saint Rocke.  Over at The Central SAPC - doctors turned rockers Das Tapes get down.  

Other notables include She Wants Revenge at The Roxy with DJ'd tunes courtesy of Franki Chan, Furthurat Greek Theatre, Richie Spice at The Mint, Dr. Dog atJohn Anson Ford Amphitheatre and Twin Shadow atThe Observatory.
