On Tap

While driving into work this morning, I saw a handmade sign taped to a pole right near the Beverly Center (it’s a mall) that said the following:

Missing: $40,000

Spent on shoes: Malono Blahnik, Jimmy Cho, Prada… etc.

Can you sympathize?

The sign had tear away contact info at the bottom, kind of like the ones you see when someone is selling something or posting about their garage sale. The best part? People had actually torn for their contact info.

Monday, 6/21
The Secret Machines/Helio Sequence @ Troubadour
This show is sold-out. People must know how good the Helio Sequence are live.

Tuesday, 6/22
RES Screening @ Egyptian

Wednesday, 6/23
The Damnwells @ Knitting Factory

Thursday, 6/24
Ambulance LTD (in-store) @ Amoeba

Friday, 6/25
Ambulance LTD/On the Speakers @ Troubadour
Awesome bill. Locals On the Speakers are just the kind of band that bring a smile to your face while nodding your head along to the music, and it seems like Ambulance LTD are poised to be the next something or other.

David Sedaris @ UCLA (Royce Hall)
Sold out, but you can probably still go and get your book signed. Thanks for Rachel for being on the ball and buying tickets months ago.

Helen Stellar @ The Echo

Sluts of Trust (in-store) @ Amoeba
I heard seeing this band is an experience not to be missed.

Glastonbury Festival @ Somewhere in England
Note to self: move to the UK.

Saturday, 6/27
The Long Winters/The Decemberists @ El Rey
This isn’t sold out yet, so do yourself a favor and buy a ticket. I’ve talked about these bands enough so you already know how much I love them.

Kid Lightning @ Hotel Café

Ministry @ Bar Sinister
Yeah, that Ministry. (Autograph signing only)
