The easy way to find Buzz Bands tonight:
☛ Radars to the Sky celebrate the release of their new album “Supra/Infra” at Spaceland, supported by Death to Anders and Smokers in Love — and, playing the late set, the Henry Clay People. I had a sneak peek of the album last week. [And on a self-promotional note, I'll be DJing the whole evening.]
Other fine show choices:
☛ The latest info on L.A. songstress Juliette Commagere is that her sophomore album “The Procession” will be out Oct. 26 on Manimal (three days after she opens an L.A. show for Air). Tonight she headlines the Echo.
☛ Black Mountain (supported by Lower Heaven) brings its big noise to the Bootleg Theater.
☛ The Hold Steady and Jaill play the Glass House. (P.S.: The Hold Steady is playing a beer-sponsored, RSVP-only show with Rogue Wave on Saturday in Culver City. To get on the list, you have to “like” the beer on Facebook. Here, get inspired.]
☛ Filter gets the Sunset Strip Music Festival’s motor running with a show at the Roxy.
☛ And it’s Learning Music at Echo Curio.
Your tastes may vary: The Franks and Lord Huron at the Downtown Independent Theater after a screening of the movie “The Scenesters;” Purple Melon at the Viper Room; Josh Tatum at the Hotel Cafe; Relax to Paris at the Troubadour; Vaud & the Villians at the Echoplex; the White Buffalo at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa; Incan Abraham at the Silverlake Lounge; Y & T at the Key Club; Eddie Spaghetti of the Supersuckers at 3 Clubs; Amanda Jo Williams at the Mountain Bar; and Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Gibson Amphitheatre.
