Upcoming Music: Andrews, Gass, Anti-Flag, Bangkok
What do Donnie Darko and Me & You & Everyone We Know have in common, other than being rad cult movies? Composer Michael Andrews. You can hear him on KCRW this morning at the usual 11:00 a.m. MBE live band slot. You can also see him live at Amoeba Records on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Keep an eye on Andrews as he's working on more film projects (Cohen Bros., etc) and a performance installment at MOMA.
Last week we mentioned Rock of Ages' Dan Finnerty playing with his band. Now, his boss in the musical, Kyle Gass of Tenacious D, will be performing tonight at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre as a special guest with Dave Hill. And there is a super secret additional special guest that we can't tell you about (it's Ronnie James Dio).
Anti-Flag's extended break from their tour in Los Angeles ends this week with a performance at the Henry Fonda Theater. It looks to be almost sold out, but there are always of getting in (if you eat dinner at the Blue Palms, will they really check your tickets?).
Skipping ahead: Tuesday, The Bangkok Five will start a tour of, err, Los Angeles in efforts to promote their new album - Who's Gonna Take Us Alive? First stop: Whiskey a Go-Go. Third Stop: Thousand Oaks Teen Center.
