  • Tonight Chicago-based hip hop artist Lupe Fiasco will be stopping by the recently opened Club Nokia. NY-based singer-songwriter Jonatha Brooke (LAist Interview) will be gracing the Largo at the Coronet. Prolific psych rockers the Entrance Band will be performing at Spaceland with LBC locals the Growlers. And, lastly, Sweden's own the (International) Noise Conspiracy will be playing a rather small room at El Cid.

  • Charlie Sheen has had a busy few days. First, a strip club in New York has debuted their Charlie-Sheen-themed VIP room, reports TMZ. The Cheetah Club now has a private area bedecked with photos of our favorite philanderer, and for the small price of $2,000 an hour, anyone who wants to can buy a bottle of Dom Perignon and the services of two strippers (get it?).

  • Submitted and Written By Dan Collins For ice cream lovers, Scoops is the frozen jewel in the Heliotrope Corridor crown (also called the Bicycle Districk and Hel-Mel), just around the corner from the legendary punk rock pavilion on Melrose known as the Ukrainian Center. Today's urban sophisticate finds that nothing cools one down after a midnight bike ride's next day sun-soaked hangover more than gourmet ice cream at bargain prices. And Scoops has all the...
  • Eulogies Eulogies Dangerbird Records Release Date: 09/11/07 Peter Walker did the right thing when he decided to ditch the solo career for his band Eulogies. For some reason or another, his solo career didn't interest me, but Eulogies' self-titled 2007 release has proven otherwise. The new album is a striking and addictive indie rock endeavor, the antithesis of Walker's previous Wilco-compared work. Eulogies is built upon deceivingly poppy premise.

  • The plucky underdogs are front and center this weekend during a brief break between the summer sequel heavyweights. They'll be trying to steal what little bit of box office they can post-Pirates, pre-Ocean.
