It’s a monthly residency kind of thing so if you miss this week there is always the next one… and the one after that… and the one after that.

John Doe/Kristin Hersh @ The Echo

UPDATED: 50 Foot Wave with with The Loudest Tragedy Ever Heard/Linister @ Fais Do Do
This is the last Little Radio for awhile, and my roomie is the one that organized it. You don't need more reason than that.

Deadbolt @ HOB
Deadbolt is an experience. That’s all I’m going to say on that. Go see them.

Golden Arms @ Echo
Great local band definitely worth checking out.

The Album Leaf @ Knitting Factory
So. Cal’s version of Sigur Ros.

Built to Spill/J Mascis and the Fog @ El Rey
Who doesn’t love Built to Spill? If you don’t, you just might be dead inside. You might want to get that checked out. And J Mascis is known for being the poster-child for Slackers. Who doesn't love a slacker?
