Both major Hollywood record stores have shows tonight: The Fratellis head to Virgin and Devon Williams over to Amoeba. There's also one of those private Zune LA (as in the mp3 player) events happening and they are showing "Joy Division: The Documentary."
Tonight's Airborne Toxic Event show has been sold out for days, but 100 tickets will be sold at the door, first come, first serve. "It's so damn cool to be back in the neighborhood playing this club. It's like a second home for us," they wrote in an e-mail after returning from a small tour.
Also, don't forget to enter to win a pair of tickets to Robert Plant and Allison Kruass, who are playing at The Greek Theatre next week.
