Tonight in L.A. (January 18, 2013)

No shortage of musical options on this fresh Friday...but there is a shortage of music videos because SUPERGOOD is flying the friendly skies and videos don't load that quickly when your 30,000 feet in the air.  

Getting down in LA tonight are a host of talented artists - from the rhythmic beauty of Femi Kuti & The Positive Force to the wild cover energy of Hyper Crush, many of L.A.'s stages will be ignited with quality music.  

Of Mice & Men rock at House of Blues - Sunset STrip, Andrew Bird evokes emotions at Largo as does Kelley James at Key Club.  For a fun sing along - consider the cover sounds of Black Crystal Wolf Kids at El Cid where they are joined by Ninja Betty & The Nunchix.  If you want to dance dance dance - check Congorock at Avalon or Gladkill and Kastle at King King Club.   Indie kids can enjoy The Dead Ships at The Satellite.

Last but certainly not least - ultimate funksters, fans of Parliament, and Talking Heads heads should swing to The Mint to catch Bernie Worrell Orchestra and see the legend Worrell in the flesh!
