Yay for Monday nights, there's lots of quality to choose from. If you're looking for something crazy and fun, then watch this video we recently took of Killsonic, who plays at The Bordello tonight. LA Weekly picks Tracy Spuehler at the Hotel Cafe as their pick and What Made Milwaukee Famous plays once again, for free, at The Echo tonight. Also BPM Magazine is hosting a new issue release party (RSVP here) at the Roxy with Peanut Butter Wolf and others.
In unfortunate news, one of the best singer/songwriters around town, Robert Francis, has been sick in the hospital, thus canceling his Silverlake Lounge residency shows earlier this month, but he should be all good for his El Rey performance tomorrow.
