Decisions, decisions...

RIP Edwards.
You weren't a bad choice. Will you be VP hopeful again? Pretty Please!

Moving right along...

These next two nights are ripe for the ear. Wednesday night is east side vs west side. Two shows, both $10. If it were just between the venues, I'd say definitely go to Troubadour over Silverlake Lounge. But the fact is you've got two pretty cool bands playing: Nico Vega and Von Iva.
Nico Vega and Saint Motel will probably both deliver some cranked up, non-stop shows. Plus the Troubadour is such a great venue to catch music. You can download Nico Vega songs for free if you hurry to their myspace.
Silverlake Lounge will probably boast some pretty outragous fashion as well as perverted performances from Von Iva and Berlin's Jessie Evans.
The only band I can vouch for on Wednesday is Von Iva. They're loud, quirky and they take no prisoners at their shows. I just hope I can make it to one show, but I work late so probably won't work out.
Thursday is going to be packed at Spaceland. If you want to get in for sure, get there early and RSVP for your free tix NOW by emailing AirborneToxic@aol.com. Airborne Toxic Event finishes off their special Thursday Night Residency with Deadly Syndrome, Castledoor, and the Morning Benders. I've seen all but Castledoor, and all are adored and embraced by silverlake/LA. There will be a lot of love in the club so I would highly recommend this show for a good night on the town.
