Los Angeles Tonight (February 28, 2013)

Its the final day of February and its time to get funked up. Whether you're doing that with the raw rocking sounds of Galactic with Corey Glover, Lyrics Born and Lateef at El Rey Theatre or with the Funky Sole DJs and Breakestra as they celebrate Black History Month at Grand Park - is time to boogie this thing into March.

Dance floors will be feeling that madness come midnight at Exchange LA where Digitalism, Switch and Classixx all hit the decks. Same can be said for Amob Tobin and Pure Filth at Fonda Theatre, Bro Safari at Yost as well as Goldroom, Viceroy and Ghost Beach at Detroit Bar.

If you're looking to do Hollywood and get crunk, crate dig while listening to soundscapes provided by DJ Nu Mark at Amoeba Records and then scream "YEAHHHH" with Lil Jon at Lure.

Tonight in L.A. (February 26, 2013)

Its not your average Tuesday this 26th of February because Check Yo Ponytail hits The Echoplex with an amazing line up and Dim Mak Studios is turning things up Jet Life style.   For the uninitiated - let's decipher.

Franki Chan's Check Yo Ponytail party very often takes the cake as the top live music event on any given night that its going down - but tonight's extravaganza at The Echoplex with Com Truise, XXYYXX, Teen Daze and Penthouse Penthouse should be extra special.  Tickets are limited, so if you were not able to cop one - then definitely consider swinging to Dim Mak Studios where emerging newcomer Goldroom, Viceroy and Ghost Beach will be laying down a high quality dance party soundtrack.  Anyone who peeped Viceroy's recent series of Jet Life remixes of the likes of B.I.G., Montell Jordan and Mark Morrsion should know what I am talking about.

Elsewhere in the Holly-hood, Skye of Morcheeba hits The Hotel Cafe's stage, Falling Still performs at Hemingway's and Diddy rages at Supperclub.

Tonight in L.A. (February 25, 2013)

Post Oscar hangovers give rise to the realization that it is actually a full work week this week.  And while that seems daunting, finding some quality act to see this Monday night in Los Angeles is not.  With some great residencies closing the books on their February run - it might be wise to catch those weekly parties before they change casts.  

The Mowgli's enlisted The Diamond Light, Zak Waters, Lisa Donnelly and DJ Jason Kramer to end things at The Satellite on a high note.  A House for Lions did the same by recruiting Max and The Moon, The Peach Kings and The Cerny Brothers.   Dance party starter Mystery Skulls hauled in Ghost Beach, Gangplans and DJ Holloweyed to Bootleg Bar to end his run there. 

Elsewhere Hunnypot Radio broadcasts out of The Central SAPC with a tasty set from rising indie electro pop rockers Mind The Gap, Del The Funky Homosapien drops some FREE raps on the Slidebar crowd, Jeff Garlin makes people laugh as he converses with Aziz Ansari at Largo and last but not least, Chief and Warships deliver a dosage of indie to It's A School Night at Bardot.

Full list of shows below.

Tonight in L.A. (February 23, 2013)

Its the last Saturday of February, a night before the Oscars and its time to get funky!   To help, Big Sam's Funky Nation is coming into town to let it all loose at The Mint.  Catch that trombone blow the roof of the Pico venue with some help from Quinn Deveaux.  

For some more talented musicianship consider seeing one of the masters of slide guitar - Robert Randolph - at Royce Hall.  

Those funky and jazz tickets sometimes can be a little outside the price range - so maybe you need some cheaper (or free) options.  Funky Sole's weekly event goes down at The Echo, and is free before 11.  Tonight Oliver Wang does a special DJ set.  Another DJ party with a low price tag is Chrome Canyons and Peanut Butter Wolf over at Los Globos.  For a little more money you can get a little freakier with Freq Nasty and LowRIDERz at El Rey Theatre.  

No list would be complete without mentioning that 311 invades The Roxy for the first of two nights that are certain to sell out and be packed to the gills.  DJ Unite opens up at the venue.
