Los Angeles Tonight (March 8, 2013)

Not heading down to SXSW this weekend? Fret not, that's the beauty of living in LA, it's a cross-roads for music. Ain't too many bands making the trek out to Texas and not budgeting in a little swing through So Cal.  So for tonight and the rest of the weekend you'll have the luxury of picking through a bunch of artists on their way to SXSW before they get there, as well as a a quality selection of musicians who have either aged out of the SXSW scene or just don't give no fughs.

So as for tonight, might I suggest Asheville native Darwin Deez at The Echo.  Not just pointing you in that direction because I like to hype my hometown.  The Deezman has been popping up on all sorts of radars lately and the consensus is that not only does he remind you of a character from Portlandia, but like that show, his own show is a feel good time for everyone.

Maybe you'd prefer to get jammy with your evening.  If that's the case then your best bet is probably jam scene vets, Moe. at The Fonda Theater. If you wind up there remember to spin a few times for your health.  It's how Jerry would want it.

Maybe you're feeling a bit adventurous and you've got some extra gas in the tank.  In that case, try Pappy and Harriet's where Rufus Wainwright is set to perform.  You can never go wrong with heading out to J. Tree to go to Pappy and Harriets, even if you don't actually make it into Pappy and Harriets.

There's also some other gems on the calendar like Fartbarf at El Cid and Big Dick at One Eyed Gypsy.  I can't really speak to the musical quality of either show, but I can vouch that on Saturday, when you're mom asks you what you did Friday night you can tell her you saw Fartbarf or Big Dick, and that's something fun.
