It’s been a month since I’ve been to a show. A month. What is wrong with me? Thankfully, that will all change tomorrow as I head from behind the Orange Curtain and into LA to see the Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile. That should be a great Friday night show: chill, with a few songs to get me going. My days (and nights) have been busy to say the least lately, and it should be nice to sip a drink, sit down, and listen to Brandi and the Brothers Avett.
There are tons of other shows playing this week, and I’ve narrowed it down to about two a day for you guys. If you have a ticket to any of them, I covet that confirmation code.
The Avett Brothers and Brandi Carlile (w/ Grace Potter and the Nocturnals) @ Nokia Theatre [of course I’m going to list the show I’m heading to. Say hi, yo.]
Listen: The Avett Brothers – Slight Figure Of Speech
Aimee Mann @ Largo [great, intimate venue for her.]
Matt & Kim [left] @ Music Box, L.A.
School of Seven Bells @ Detroit Bar, Costa Mesa
Belle & Sebastian with Jenny & Johnny @ The Palladium [anyone have a free, extra ticket? This should be a great show. Jenny & Johnny is, of course, a duet consisting of Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley) and Jonathan Rice. Their debut album is fantastic.]
Listen: Jenny & Johnny – Scissor Runner
The Soft Pack @ Detroit Bar
Tired Pony [members of Snow Patrol, R.E.M., Belle & Sebastian] @ El Rey
Jenny & Johnny @ the Troubadour

Lissie @ Troubadour [Newcomer solo artist is the darling of indie radio stations. Check her out.]

The Like @ Detroit Bar
Going to any shows this week? Excited for any coming up this month? Leave a comment.
May is here! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping… and new shows are on the calendar. Here are a few shows to see if you have a chance. Most are under 20 bucks, and if I had unlimited gas money and got paid to be a music blogger, I’d go to all of these. But I’m not, so I won’t. Unless you are buying my ticket?
Never heard of these bands with strange names? Listen. Like. Trust me.
