After a weird week lull after Coachella, rock in Los Angeles is getting back in order.

Update for Mezzanine Owls show: There is free valet and parking to the first 50 people who arrive, and at 9 p.m. there will be screen-printing t-shirts out of the back of a Toyota Matrix outside of the venue, courtesy of Antics. Of course, there's always free parking for those who ride their bikes or no parking by public transit.
