Our Pick: Magic Bullets @ Space 15 Twenty (FREE! Early Show; 8:30 PM)
LA-bred psych rockers Dead Meadow, who recently rung in their latest endeavor, 2010's feature-length film and soundtrack Three Kings, will be taking on Spaceland. Mystery Claws, a side-project of Princeton's Matt Kivel that also features Warpaint drummer Stella Mozgawa, are poised to ring in their debut—2010's Hydaspia—for free, in-store at Origami Vinyl. And, lastly, Long Beach-bred one-man band Nima Kazeroun, who performs under the pseudonym So Many Wizards, will be gracing HM157 in Montecido Heights. But we strongly suggest heading over to Space 15 Twenty in Hollyweird to catch San Franciscan indie rock quintet Magic Bullets, who are returning with their second, self-titled album on Brooklyn upstart Mon Amie Records.
