Tonight in L.A. (November 23, 2012)

After you take down some leftovers, get some Black Friday shopping in and decompress - you might be wise to consider checking out some live music.  It will help you work off those T-day calories and will take your mind off any family drama that may have ensued.  

If you're in LA there is no shortage of musical distractions - from the massive dubstep throwdown that is SMOG's 6 Year Anniversary party at The Roxy to the fun of Yo Gabba Gabba Live! at Nokia Theatre - you should be audibly pleased.   The latter has two performances - one at 2 and one at 5:30 and is actually fun for all, kids and adults included.  The former might be a bit too filthy for the pre-teen crowd.

To dance off that turkey and gravy - Afrojack brings his poptacular production and dance floor anthems to Hollywood Palladium with support from Shermanology, Quintino and R3hab.  For a more indie dance vibe - consider checking out the final 2012 installment of Private Label at Lure with Holy Ghost! and Them Jeans.  Get there early for the Left Over, Do Over's post Thanksgiving celebration, and just stay for the React, DubFrequency and MFG Productions event that has become a Friday night staple for the cool crowd.

Westsiders don't have to travel far to dance - just head to The Central SAPC and catch the Silent Frisco crew mash up Boys Noize with Wu Tang Clan all night long.  It certainly is something you might want to f' with.   If you're really feeling the hip-hop vibes though, then Action Bronson and Cypress Hill at House of Blues or Dom Kennedy at Club Nokia are probably better choices.
