[Happy birthday to Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, who are in town tonight ...]
► Buzz Bands LA’s monthly Second Tuesday songwriter night continues at Lot 1 Cafe with Brian Whelan (pictured), Stephen Sowan and Jason Diaz.
► Mogwai roars into the Mayan Theatre behind its seventh album, “Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will” [get a taste here]. Fellow Glaswegians Errors open.
► Pinback plans to release a new album this year, its first since 2007; maybe there’ll be some new material tonight when they visit the El Rey Theatre.
► Locally, the Lonely Wild continues its residency at the Central in Santa Monica, supported by the Bellows, Instant People and Escalator Hill.
► And there’s a great supporting lineup for the second week of Alberta Cross’ residency at the Satellite — Blonde Summer, Twilight Sleep and the Romany Rye. Silversun Pickups’ Brian Aubert DJs.
