As mentioned yesterday, after a busy weekend of music festivals, this week has no shortage of bands to see. Flight of the Conchords, who play this weekend, usually draw huge buzz, but with Green Day's Foxboro Hot Tubs hitting town for their first tour, fans are lining the streets for exclusive only-buy-in-person tickets for tonight's show at The Roxy.

If you can't get into that, the Silverlake Lounge will be happening with new local bands fully endorsed by many of the local music blogs. And of course, big meta shout out to LAist Contributor Simone Snaith of The Fast Sails who play tonight at the Bordello.
