Los Angeles is a hotbed of live music, and L.A. Weekly is here to help you navigate this embarrassment of riches. From giants like Katy Perry and The Eagles to Jesika Von Rabbit and The Dickies, here are 12 of the best shows in L.A. this week!THE TROUBADOUR"She's cheaper than a dollar-store version of me," Jade Bird rails on the R&B-flavored "Good Woman," from her 2017 debut EP, Something American. On the record, as well as on the three singles she's released this year, the British singer charts all the ways love can go wrong. On "Furious," Bird asks a cheating lover, "When was the turning point when you put out your joint and you laid her down?" On the stormy, acoustic guitar–driven "Uh Huh," she complains about a romantic rival, "She's got you on your knees like a little boy." Bird is more ruefully contemplative on "Lottery" even as she realizes that love is ultimately just a gamble. The 20-year-old vocalist's country-pop originals have a simple, appealing charm, but … [Read more...] about 12 Best Music Shows in L.A. This Week

It's another week sifting through 678 vinyl records. Here's four more and an NP from my blog. I'm on track to finish in 18 months writing about all 678, which I collected at the end of the vinyl era in the 1970s and 1980s. I do have a small amount 50s and 60s records as well as some more current 'new vinyl' pieces. I do plan to be living when I write that final review (I have under 500). And I expect -- and this is the first time I've said this -- for a cure for Lewy body dementia to be found by the time I finish. So two things: stay alive and finding a cure as this countdown continues. For my NP (Now Playing) I have some Peter Gabriel. He is my second G-music album(s) having earlier posted 'Gaugin' the Music and Dance of Tahiti (I told you it gets weird around here.) I have Gabriel's first two albums, self-titled both. And I think I still like the first one the best and it is excellent. 'Solsbury Hill' is one of my favorite rock songs. "Biko' on the second album is also a … [Read more...] about My Vinyl Count Down gets in Dire Straits and after some Miles gets Diddley

In Don Henley’s “The Boys of Summer,” the ruminative vocalist and cool cofounder of the quintessential dark Californian band the Eagles sang of a man’s aging process, reminiscing about friends lost and left behind. Henley’s great loss, and that of Eagles Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, was the death of bandmate Glenn Frey in 2016, leaving a creative hole akin to the Rolling Stones’ Jagger losing Richards. “I don’t see how we could go out and play without the guy who started the band,” Henley told the Washington Post in 2016. Two summers later, the Eagles have seemingly healed and filled that void, bringing Frey’s singing son Deacon into the fold — along with smoldering country-blues guitarist Vince Gill — and touring with genial, melodious James Taylor. Such California melancholy country/rock/soul and blissful, mellow pop was the perfect soundtrack to a breezy Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park. Opening with … [Read more...] about A night of reminiscing with old friends: the Eagles and James Taylor
