Those of you still looking for something to do this weekend, who also want to somehow combine this weekend-something-doing with music, leftist politics and dancing are in luck. The feisty internet agitators at Kill Radio are holding another fundraiser, this one at the Echo Curio, Saturday night (January 26 if you're nasty) at 9 PM.

For a small donation (just 5 to 10 rapidly devaluing American Dollars,) you'll get 2 DJs, tons of dancing and 4 bands, including: the splendid Biirdi, (Glendale's answer to 1970s The Kinks,) Psyche-Garage rocker type guys Lemon Sun, Glasser, (who is apparently 50% electronic instruments and 50% Care Bears,) and the almost palindromic John Webster Johns, whose music I won't insult by describing, I'll simply tell you to click the link and be astonished.

You'll also get a smug sense of accomplishment from helping out a venerable LA mainstay and Internet Radio Pioneer pay their bills and continue to produce some pretty keen shows.
