There’s so many cool things happening in LA this week. Here’s where you can find me!
June 11 – JJAMZ at The Satellite: I first saw JJAMZ when they were opening up for Milo Greene at their own residency at famed Silver Lake enclave The Satellite. Now they’ve got their own June residency! Members hail from groups like Maroon 5, Rilo Kiley, Phantom Planet, and The Like, and they’ve come together to create a sound all of their own. Check out their video for Never Enough below!
June 14 – Phantom Planet at The Troubadour: No explanation necessary. It’s PHANTOM PLANET! It’s all sold out, but if you can snag tickets on Craigslist, DO IT!
June 15 – Japandroids at EchoPlex: If you haven’t heard these guys, you’re seriously missing out. I’m a FIEND for loud guitars and rough drums, and this band does it well. It’s two guys trying to sound like 10 guys. Take that as you will, and take a listen on Spotify to hear for yourself!
June 16 – Make Music Pasadena: It’s that time again! I had a great time last year, and this year is shaping up to be even better. If you haven’t heard of Make Music Pasadena, it’s SoCal’s biggest FREE music festival. This year, the lineup includes Grimes, Grouplove, Cults, Electric Guest, and So Many Wizards, amongst many others. Make the trek out there and be part of it! You can even take the train.
Where are you going to be at this week? Wherever it is, I hope it’s wonderful. Happy Monday!
