Tonight in L.A. (February 1, 2013)

Kick off your month (and Super Bowl weekend) on the right foot with a variety of musical options in Los Angeles.  

Personal favorites - Karl Denson's Tiny Universe are set to funk things up at El Rey Theatre with support from Howlin' Rain while other skilled instrumentalists, The Wood Brothers, provide a more laid back set of sounds at Largo.  

For more aggressive rock consider Hell Ride featuring Mike Watt, Peter Distefano, Stephen Perkins and more at The Central SAPC.  For the jams - ALO and The California Honeydrops at Troubadour would definitely be a stellar choice.

Rising star Father John Misty performs at SoHo House while a buzzband of yesteryear, The Happy Hollows, try to fill up The Satellite.  For eclectic, cool and a good crowd - The Natural History Museum hosts electrifying performer Gaslamp Killer and his bobbing headnod and The Echo brings in Geographer.
