W2G2 (What 2 Go 2): May 25 - 31

It's finally here: the last week of May, which means the Passion Pit / Harlem Shakes shows I've been anticipating for way too long. This week features a lot of excellent non-local talent.

Monday: Last night for May's monthly residencies. I'd recommend going to the Gangi residency at Spaceland, especially if you haven't seen Gangi yet, and especially since Warpaint and Local Natives open.

Wednesday: The Thermals at the Troubadour. I can't imagine this is going to be anything but a load of fun.
  • I considered ditching this show to see Jens Lekman play his excellent (and Swedish) indie-pop at the Echo. I'm not going to do that, but it's reasonable alternative.
Thursday: Night One: Passion Pit and The Harlem Shakes at the Troubadour.
  • For those without tickets, Jens Lekman is playing his second night at the Echo.
Friday: Night Two: Passion Pit and The Shakes the Echoplex.
Saturday: King Khan & The Shrines at the Echo for their second night. This time it's the early show beginning at 7pm.

Sunday: Back to local bands, and here's two fine specimens: Go West Young Man and Le Switch play the Dakota Lounge in Santa Monica.
