What 2 Go 2: April 5 - 11

Foster the People

Monday: Night 1 of Walking Sleep's Echo residency. The only opening band that interests me is Carsick Cars, a Chinese indie rock band on their first US tour.

: Foster the People, one of the bands in the growing SUPERGOODMUSIC family, opens up at Spaceland. CER's Show of the Week.
  • FTP has only played a handful of shows, but have already made it to SXSW and back, and have been drawing comparisons to MGMT and Peter, Bjorn & John. In short, best get on this train before it speeds away from the station. They don't have a Myspace page, but their homepage has a player in the bottom left corner. Stick around after FTP to check out The Fling.
  • Link to download 2010's Song of the Summer: FTP's "Pumped up Kicks" here
  • Unofficial video for Pumped Up Kicks:

: Two good choices:
  • Night 2 of 3 of We Are the World's Thursday residency at the Echo, celebrating the release of their record, Clay Stones. If you haven't seen We Are the World, you must. Their performances are visually captivating.
  • The Minor Cannon is at the Silverlake Lounge. Minor Cannon is on my long list of bands that I should have been by now.
Friday: Family of the Year, one of CER's New Favorites, is at the Bootleg Theatre with The Janks. Thankfully FOTY takes the stage before midnight (10:30 pm), unlike the last time I saw them.

Saturday: Wires in the Walls brings their blend of indie rock and Americana to the Bootleg for its EP Release Show. Olin & The Moon opens at 10:30, Wires is on at 11:30.
