Our Pick: Sigur Rós @ The Greek (Sold Out)

First and foremost, we'd like to excuse our brief lapse into barbarism yesterday. We may or may not have initially forgotten to include the triumphant return of My Bloody Valentine, which commenced last night at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. Tonight, the London-based progenitors of blaring shoegaze will be concluding their brief two-date stint with a sold-out show at the aforementioned venue. If you miss it, well, then you run the risk of being called—among other brilliantly devised hyperbole—an uncultured swine. For those lucky enough to snag tickets to McCabe's 50th Anniversary bash at Royce Hall, we applaud thee! You will be treated to a night filled with mind-blowingly dexterous guitar playing, including past masters Jackson Browne and Richard Thompson, as well as Drag City's own Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. And, lastly, Joshua Tree-based psych-pop act Gram Rabbit, who were hailed as best new LA band in 2005 at the LA Weekly Music Awards, will be headlining the House of Blues Sunset. But we suggest catching Icelandic quartet Sigur Rós at the Greek Theatre. They will be pumping out ethereal, otherworldly tunes in support of 2008's Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.
