Shows Of The Week: 6/11 – 6/18

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!

Shows Of The Week: 6/4 – 6/10

Here’s a new little column I’ve been wanting to post up for awhile. It’s short, sweet, and very to the point. Here you’ll find my favorite shows and artists playing in the greater Los Angeles area. You can bet I’ll be at a few, if not all, of them!

June 4 – The Colourist, Blondfire, Now Now, and Davis Fetter at The Bootleg Bar: I’ll admit it… I’m mostly excited to see Now, Now. I wrote about them back in April, and I’m SO excited to finally get to see them preform at such an intimate venue. They’ve been on some pretty big tours this year, so it’s definitely going to be special.

June 5 – Walk The Moon at The Echo: So excited about these guys… WONDERFUL melodies, and just so damn catchy. Again, it’s an incredibly intimate venue, and as these guys are on the fast track to blowing up soon I suggest taking the opportunity to see them while you can!

June 6 – States at The Glass House Pomona: I’m really excited to see my friend Stephen’s band play in Pomona this Wednesday. If you’re not familiar with States, its the birth child of Copeland and Mindy White of Lydia. Some of my favorite bands in high school, they’ve created a much more mature sound for a more mature audience.

June 8 – Maps and Atlases with Hands at The Troubadour: You’ve all heard of Maps and Atlases I’m sure… they’re always SO solid. But if you haven’t had a chance to check out Hands yet, I suggest you do it this Friday night.

Check out Hands’ music video for Warm Night Home below!

So there you have it! Check back next week for the SOTW column again. If I’m missing out on any AMAZING shows I should know about, leave me a comment and tell me about em!
