Sorrrrrrry! We've been so lazy this month that for your patience you receive an entire 30 song playlist. This is the definitive list of what you should be listening to right now, including previews of soon to be released tracks from the new albums of LCD Soundsystem, Broken Social Scene, and The National.
Incidentally, Late Spring/Early Summer is a magical time for live music in Los Angeles. Here's an early list of the shows I have tickets to in the coming months:
May 5- Two Door Cinema Club- Troubadour
May 19- Broken Bells- Henry Fonda
May 20- Edward Sharpe- Royce Hall
May 27- Plants & Animals- Troubadour
And here's where it gets really crazy:
June 2- Miike Snow- Henry Fonda
June 3- Mumford and Sons w/ The Middle East- Henry Fonda
June 4- Local Natives- Troubadour
June 5- LCD Soundsystem- Fox Theater
June 6- The XX- Wiltern
June 22- Stars- Troubadour
So in other words, if you know of a good 12 step program for compulsive ticket buying, please don't hesitate to contact me.
