Los Angeles Tonight (May 31, 2013)

On the final day of this month of May - a strong suggestion goes out for The New Division, Gavin Turek, Monte Mar and Let's Drive to Alaska at The Central SAPC. This is the venue's rumored final show as new ownership comes in and allegedly plans to change the vibe. Come support the soon to be out of work bartenders and celebrate the closing of the westside's top concert destination.

Elsewhere you'll find Chvrches tearing up Fonda Theatre, The Peach Kings and Strange Vine putting some blues and emotion into indie rock at Bootleg Bar and White Arrows and Avi Buffalo doing the same at Constellation Room. The heady dub crowd ought to consider The Aggrolites and The Lions at Saint Rocke - especially because we are giving away tickets to the show. BUT, if you like your dub tunes extra filthy than Bro Safari and ETC! ETC! at Avalon is probably the best option.

Other notables include the always amazing and supremely talented Jon Brion at Largo, the continuation of Private Label Friday's at LURE with sets from Yacht and Neon Indian and Bag Raiders spinning at The Observatory.

Los Angeles Tonight (May 17, 2013)

Its Friday...almost night...and you feel alright, but the party is most certainly not on the westside this 17th....its in Hollywood, West Hollywood, the O.C., Silverlake and Downtown.

Downtown gets a healthy serving of hip hop from Fabolous and Pusha T at Club Nokia, while the OC's Observatory gets Big Boi of Outkast along with Killer Mike.  Other shows are below...and you can win tickets to Filligar by tweeting or emailing - just check our GIVEAWAYS PAGE.
