Thee Oh Sees at Burgerama (2015)


There are simply too many shows in Los Angeles, I can’t keep up with all these gigs and concerts, big and small, underground and  less underground, and even though I can’t physically go out every night, I easily could see one or two great shows per day. Here are the best concerts to see in March if you live in Los Angeles

On Saturday March 4th, I am going to see Desert Daze at the Regent with Temples, Night Beats, Deap Vally, Froth, JJUUJJUU, but the same day I could also go see Best Coast, and Grouplove (and many other bands) playing a benefit for Planned Parenthood at the El Rey, or the Shins at the Fox Theater in Pomona, or Jose Gonzalez at Royce Hall in UCLA, or Kevin Morby at The Sanctuary at Pico Union… and I am only mentioning a few shows because there is also Brian Jonestown Massacre at the Fonda theater or Chicano Batman and Sadgirl at the Roxy.

On Monday March 6th, Spoon play the Observatory, but it is also the first installment for Tashaki Miyaki’s residency at the Echo and this will be happening every Monday in March: If I had to pick a date I would choose Monday 13th with Lael Neale, Joel Jerome and Slow Dancer and Monday 20th with Jesus Sons, LA Witch and Starcrawler (highly recommended)

On Tuesday March 7th, The Night talks start their residency at the Hi Hat and they have Holy Wars (which will be playing their 2 show ever) that night, and you will be able to see them every Tuesday of the month at the same place.

On Wednesday March 8th, the Drums play the Glass House in Pomona.
