Losanjealous Concert Picks: June 26 – July 2

Visit our concert calendar for a full show list, links to buy tickets and our top picks.

band of horsesPICK OF THE WEEK: Band of Horses @ Echo

Seattle’s Band of Horses are quietly crafting some of the most beautiful, evocative American guitar pop today. They get mentioned alongside My Morning Jacket all the time, but the truth is, their LP Everything All The Time is better than that other band’s last one. See this band by all means.

The LikeAdmitting to liking L.A.’s The Like is often qualified as a guilty pleasure, especially if one is A) over the age of 20, B) male, or C) male and over the age of 20. Sure we’ve heard all the old records and genres they’ve heard and reference: Brit-Pop, shoegaze, Pretenders, Lush, Throwing Muses, Radiohead, and so on. But they somehow they pull it all together and they look good doing it. What more do you want in a pop band?
