Losanjealous Concert Picks: April 2-8

PICK OF THE WEEK: Jason Lytle & Aaron Espinoza @ Silverlake Lounge

’AaronIt is bittersweet to see the decline of Grandaddy intersect with the resurgence of Earlimart, their kindred LA-based softrockers, whose tunes from their forthcoming record sounded damn good at the Getty last month. With the two frontmen from these bands coming together for an intimate one-off gig, you can expect “broken synths, acoustic guitars, birds, little songs, crickets, drum machines, and a bottle of wine,” as they put it on the Earlimart blog.
