Seven Shows in Seven Days
Fri 3/31 - Lucinda Williams @ El Rey Theatre (SOLD OUT) - The immensely talented folk and country influenced singer-songwriter in an intimate setting with just her guitarist backing her up. We hope she doesn't throw a tantrum like she did the last time we saw her at the Austin City Limits Festival.
Sat 4/1 - Petra Haden & the Sell Outs @ RecCenter Studio ($15) - Listening to her recorded, a cappella version of the Who's The Who Sell Out is more interesting than you might think. The opportunity to see her try to pull it off live is even more intriguing.
Sun 4/2 - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club / Silversun Pickups @ Spaceland ($20) - Two powerful live acts in one small venue. This is a benefit for the Rose Scharlin Co-Op Nursery School so don't try to weasel your way in on the guest list. Advance tickets are sold out, so get there early.
Mon 4/3 - New York Dolls @ Spaceland (Sold Out) - Even though they reached their peak over 30 years ago, there's still something exciting about seeing them in a 250-person club. David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain are the two remaining original members.
Tue 4/4 - The Clean Prophets @ The Viper Room ($7) - The Clean Prophets are an unsigned local band with catchy, toe-tapping songs. We detect a hint of the Chameleons and Echo & the Bunnymen in their sound. Download "Tambourine Crown"
Wed 4/5 - The Parson Red Heads @ Lava Lounge - We're starting to hear some nice things about these recent transplants from Oregon. They play the kind of 1960's rock with four-part harmonies, jangly guitars and tambourines.
