If you like Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (review), then you're going to love Eli 'Paperboy' Reed who plays at The Echo tonight (Video of Reed below). Tickets are still available, but if you can't make it tonight, Reed is back May 18 and 19, at the Doheny Blues Festival in Dana Point and Spaceland, respectively.

Additionally, if you're a country rock fan, Raul Borja's wrote up a profile of Tift Merritt who plays The Troubadour tonight. For tomorrow, Mae Shi, who were interviewed with spicy Little Tokyo ramen by Carrie Meathrell, play tomorrow at Spaceland. Earlier today, Michele Reverte wraps up last week's Hotel Cafe tour along with plenty of photos by Koga (and more to come later today)
