If tonight's slim pickings in the music scene had an official theme, it would fall into Western/Country. In mid-country, House of Blues, Sunset Strip, is hosting a night of insane Psychobilly (punk, meet rockabilly). The Southlands of Long Beach finds the baritone country rock sounds of Brad Johnson at Cowboy Country and to the north in the Valley, the straight ahead country rockabilly Jeffrey Michaels visits The Cowboy Palace Saloon.

Of other interests and genres, Temple Bar in Santa Monica goes another route with a night of soul and hip hop at a monthly night called Reflection Live. Despite a somewhat poetic and good-natured title, the night features a promising set of inspiring locals: the truth-seeking Sadiki Bakari, Venice based The Luminaries and the down to the earth and organic Skim.
