Alex & Sam will play the first show of their residency at Tangier tonight | Photo via their MySpace

You might recognize the girl above. Locally, that's Sam from the band Alex & Sam who is playing at Tangier all this month every Sunday night, but for those who are more pop-culture oriented (rather, American Idol obsessed), that's Samantha Sidley who got a pass from all three judges for a "Welcome to Hollywood" (she's already here). Her audition was unusual, making it to YouTube (which is below after the jump), because Ryan Seacrest and Paul Abdul switched places. Ryan failed as a judge, but at least our local indie-acoustic songstress made it to the second round. Support her and her band this month, starting tonight.

For those on the Westside, we highly recommend going over to McCabe's Guitar Shop for the Winter Flowers who we caught at The Bordello a few weeks ago. Their show was not given justice due to their beautifully subtle music and a louder than usual bar crowd that night. They'll be joined by the Laurel Canyon influenced (iconic 1960s) The Entrance Band and Portland based White Rainbow (they will heal you through music).
