Are you tired of going out nearly every night and practically forfieiting your wallet to various venues in the City? Nah, me neither. Well, don't expect anything to slow down, the summer's just heating up.
6/2 - Mumford & Sons/The Middle East @ Slim's: Yikes, another sold-out Mumford & Sons show. In fact almost every single stop on their tour is completely sold out. If you're itching to test their brand of British folk revival, then get to searching here on Craigslist.
6/2-6/3 - Local Natives @ Bottom of the Hill/Rickshaw Stop: Considering the insanely quick rise to fame for these LA locals (we saw them just about 8 months ago to an empty room at Harlot in SOMA), it makes perfect sense that they're playing 2 venues in 2 nights. Just announced, they added the date at The Rickshaw Stop on the 2nd to accomodate the high demand. But no matter where they play, Local Natives' live performance is absolutely phenomenal, and it'll be worth begging a scalper outside. Trust us.
6/3 - LCD Soundsystem @ The Fillmore: We're not even sure if The Fillmore's bouncy floor will be able to withstand the sure-to-be insanity of this packed-house dance party. If you know someone in the music biz, now's the time to call in a favor.
6/6 - BFD @ Shoreline: Live 105's annual Shoreline party is back. The lineup this year includes: Sublime With Rome, Hole, Deftones, Silversun Pickups, Cage The Elephant, Spoon, Temper Trap, The Soft Pack, Matt & Kim, Amplive, and a pretty loaded local stage. Not too shabby if you ask us. Too cheap for the $30-something price tag? Our friends at The Owl Mag are giving away tickets for FREE!
6/20 - A Place To Bury Strangers @ Rickshaw Stop: Often known as a noise band, APTBS's sophomore album has them progressing by legions. Their infectious sounds will have you enraptured throughout the entire show.
6/24 - Josh Ritter @ The Fillmore: Josh is a classic case of underappreciated home-grown talent that's HUGE abroad (see: Kings of Leon). Occassionally we let a quality artist slip through our fingers, but we catch on eventually. Ritter's intelligent themes will appeal to those who are interested in more than the typical grimy rock-and-roll show. Stay tuned, we'll be giving away FREE TICKETS the week before the show.
6/24-6/25 - Pavement @ The Greek Theater: This is your chance to get out there and see indie rock legends. Recently re-united, Pavement is gracing only the best of stages and festies this year.
6/29 - CocoRosie @ The Regency: These delightfully odd vagabond sisters randomly formed in Paris, developing their sound over the last 7 years. Their appearances in the US are extremely rare, the last time was 3 years ago to be exact, so if you're even the slightest bit interested, don't even think about it, buy your tickets right now.
