Of the best acts at Coachella this year, Wolfmother were on the elite short list. Afroed, sabbathed, intense, and suprisingly soulful, the Aussie trio reached back into the 70s and brought back all the dark pleasures of Ozzy, Zeppelin, and even Yes, chock-full of beefy guitar and keyboard action.

As mentioned by Duke on Tuesday, the hard-rock group is also the music you hear in the latest iPod + iTunes ad (video).

Tonight Wolfmother play to the sold-out Henry Fonda with opening act deadboy and the Elephantmen, which is a chick on drums and a dude on guitar and they're not who you wish they were.

Meanwhile metrosensuals She Wants Revenge gets to play the Wiltern. How does that even make any sense? Wolfmother truly rocks, appears on tv several times a day, and She Wants Revenge nabs a bigger venue and a sweeter place? Oh the humanity. Where's the petition.

Next door to our favorite Sunset Strip hotel, The Mondrian, Compton's own DJ Quik is going to allow you to do something that hasn't happened since Matisyahu played Austin's fabled Stubbs this March. And that is to have the chance to buy a live CD of an artist as they are playing that very club. Matisyahu's was called "Live at Stubbs", while Quik's latest "Greatest Hits: Live at the House of Blues" will be performed, in a way, tonight at the HOB.

Lastly, famed photographer Koganuts's second-favorite band Hello Stranger rock Spaceland tonight. The artists formerly known as Vagenius are playing the Silver Lake club each Wednesday in June.
