Tonight in L.A. (February 15, 2013)

Valentine's Day is over - which means you don't have an excuse to not go to a show tonight.  That's right - straight up dissing post Valentine's Day plans.  Cancel 'em.  Tonight's concert calendar is too heady.

Emerging LA talent is all over the place - like the Gonzo Country party at The Mint headlined by throwback act Dustbowl Revival. Frontman and songwriter Zach Lupetin keeps the crowd moving and his rotating stable of talented instrumentalists always make it a party.

Across town, indie electro-pop rock act Mind The Gap celebrate the completion of their EP at The Hotel Cafe.  If you feel like dancing in an intimate space - check it out because they will surely play the catchy "Find My Way" and other new material.  If you need a larger dance floor - check out MNDR and RAC at Lure.  MNDR joined Tokimonsta at Low End Theory on Wednesday and made homies in the crowd melt - and she will probably do the same at the second installment of this season's Private Label Fridays.

To rock in a larger setting - EELS get down at Fonda Theatre and Unknown Mortal Orchestra headlines a sexy indie line up at The Echoplex that includes Foxygen, Gothic Tropic and Wampire.

For the hip-hop fans - Blackalicious does an early show at Yost Theater, Cam-Ron goes a little harder at Key Club and pop rapper Wallpaper. spits at The Roxy along with Con Bro Chill.  

Other notables include Sam Barsh Trio at Virgil, Soundgarden at The Wiltern and Photek at King King Club.  Full list of shows below the videos.
