Tonight in L.A. (October 6, 2012)

Today is not just an ordinary first Saturday.  Today and tonight is a circus of music in Los Angeles.

From the early afternoon musings of B.A.M. in Santa Monica featuring a couple of bands - including roots rock faves Dustbowl Revival to the eclectic soundscapes at the 14th Annual Eagle Rock Music Festival and Filter Magazine's 3rd Culture Collide Festival - LA has it going on.  

If you're choosing between ERMF and Culture Collide - your love of the beat scene or lack thereof should dictate your choice.  If you love beat culture - I'd recommend a visit to ERMF because Thundercat, Daedelus, Peanut Butter Wolf, Jonwayne, J-Rocc and Dub Club Sound System are all playing.  If you don't - the rock offerings of Culture Collide features a plethora of international talent and artists you couldn't see on most other weekends in LA.  Whereas ERMF has a lot of local rock talent - tonight's Culture Collide line-up features the likes of Of Montreal, Icona Pop, Niki and The Dove, Gold Fields and more.  

Also on the east side of town - Stepdad rocks The Satellite and Furthur featuring Bob Weir and Phil Lesh jams the Greek Theatre.  

Staples Center hosts The Black Keys with Tegan and Sara for a second night in a row - and The Roxy sees the return of She Wants Revenge and Franki Chan - this time with The Child and The Lonely Trees as additional support.  Also on the strip - Xzibit headlines Key Club with a handful of local MCs on their grind, including FOCI, opening.  

The sleeper show of the night has to be Shpongle Presents: The Masquerade at Hollywood Palladium - apparently Michael Menert and Break Science were just added to the bill.  We have a pair of tickets to give away to that - so do hit us up at or tweet out @supergoodmusic @thepalladium.

Other notables include Dustbowl Revival's double duty at B.A.M. and then McCabe's in Santa Monica, Z.Z. Ward at Space 15 Twenty in the early evening, Yelawolf and Rittz and The Observatory and The Soul of John Black at WitZend.   All recommendations are in bold below.
