Superchunk, The Vaselines, Telekinesis @ the Fonda 10/19/10

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Last week, Superchunk brought out LA’s contingent of old school indie rock fans to celebrate their new full-length, Majesty Shredding. Besides playing new songs, Mac and crew made sure the crowd were satiated with the old stuff, which sounded as fresh and new as if put out today. For those of you who maybe missed Superchunk among the Pavements and Sonic Youths of that decade, do yourself a favor and grab No Pocky for Kitty and Foolish. They're a genre defining band, and the reason why Merge Records is so successful (yeah, that Merge). One of my all time favorites, showing absolutely no sign of slowing down (or pogoing less). The Vaselines (remember "Jesus Don't Want Me For A Sunbeam"?) and Telekinesis opened.
