Tonight in L.A. (January 30, 2013)

Its not your average hump day here in LA to end the first month of 2013 because of the artists playing in town.    Its the end of a slamming guitar rocking residency at The Mint which featured Eric McFadden for five weeks and the appearance of the aging Who at Staples Center.  

While Townsend and friends attempt to take a hefty crowd to a teenage wasteland, plenty of emerging artists will be stamping their identity on some LA sonic enclaves.   Kyle Nicolaides pumps out emotional and sometimes dark songwriting at Room 5 Lounge, Lushlife, Groundislava and Zak Waters deliver a healthy and diverse set of local music flavor at The Echo, Antibalas gets a little tribal beat at Troubadour and Hot Buttered Rum jams some free bluegrass at Slidebar.

Other notables include Metalachi and Great White Buffalo at El Cid and Niki & The Dove at The Barn with Vacationer as support.  Full list of Wednesday's shows below....
