The Shins Tonight at Amoeba at 6pm (free)

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Can we go a week without licking the taint of our favorite local behemoth record store?


But it won't be this week.

In the last year, The Shins have played Hollywood Bowl, Lollapalooza, Letterman (see above), Conan (see below, after the jump) and this spring will - allegedly - play Coachella.

Hard to listen to The Shins without smiling, so if you end up at the record store next to the Arclight tonight and leave with a little smile, then it's working.
