Weekly Fliers (6/25/09)

Summer is officially here! Which means a lot of bands from a lot of different places are out and about doing their thing hitting up all of your favorite venues and other places you may have never heard of. I'm really excited for all of it! One show I wish I was going to is tonight at The Smell with a lot of really good bands like Jesus Makes the Shotgun Sound, The Enochian Keys, and Voice on Tape. Then tomorrow night at The Smell is a real Battle of the Bands. I don't know how it's supposed to go down but one band is pitted against another band. Sounds like a lot of fun.

Also this weekend, Griefshare is one lucky guy. Not only does he get one party/show with really good bands, he gets two! Starting Saturday night at J Dee's Landing in Palm Springs, he'll be playing with Meho Plaza, Double Dagger, Kyle Mabson, and Grrrips. And then on Sunday, in San Diego at the Kava Lounge he'll be playing with Stage Kids, Motel Monster, a.passerbye, Suspenders Malloy, and Slowair. Come out to either or both of these shows and wish him a Happy Birthday.

Do you like ninjas? Do you like face melting music? Then on July 1st at 2nd St. Jazz in Los Angeles, Little Tokyo to be exact, two of my favorite ninja themed bands, Random Ninjas, and Ninja Academy are playing with some other ninja bands. This show is a ninja dream come true. Also on July 1st, Minutemen legend, Mike Watt, and his band The Missing Men will be playing live at the Olde Towne Pub in Pasadena with Stab City and Dharma Bums.

One last thing, beginning tonight, every Thursday at J Dee's, Evaro will be performing as part of their residency. Go check that out.

That's all for this week. I hope to see you guys out at some of these shows. Say hello if you see me. As always, check with the venue for any last minute schedule changes or cancellations. Take care.

Weekly Fliers (6/12/09)

Hey guys, welcome back. I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I Just want to mention a show worth checking out which is the Taco Zone Benefit show. Some vandals attempted to torch the Taco Zone truck, leaving it with huge holes on the roof of the truck. Some kind LA folks are getting together to try and raise money to hopefully repair the roof. Lots of surprise guests as well! I hear comedian Aziz Ansari will be performing.

That's all for now. As always check with the venue for any last minute changes or cancellations.
