Good day, LAist readers. Welcome back to another work week, filled with alarm clocks and paper clips—and interesting amusements, courtesy of your very favorite metro blog. Keep reading for details.
Enjoy a trip back to the mid-90s with Hootie & the Blowfish at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills. Tickets are $42.50 and $68.50, but you get to enjoy the best of what pop music of the last decade had to offer.
At The Echo, see Gram Rabbit with Artichoke. "With a name like Gram Rabbit and a back story set in Joshua Tree, you might expect too-faithful cosmic-country boilerplate from these roots-rocking longhairs, who start a months worth of free Monday-night shows at the Echo tonight." But rather than a straight country menu, Gram Rabbit keeps things varied and interesting; besides, it's a free show. What do you have to lose? Things get started at 8:30 PM. (21+)
At Tangier, see Jonathan Richman (yes, that Jonathan Richman) backed by former Naked Prey drummer Tommy Larkins, with Gwendolyn. Tonight is the CD release party for Richman's new album, Not So Much To Be Loved As To Love. Tickets are $12.00 and doors open at 8:00 PM.
