Losanjealous Concert Picks: May 28 – June 3


Arcade Fire & Electrelane @ The Greek
Tues | Wed | Thurs (Electrelane solo @ Troubadour)

’ArcadeSure, it’s easy and obvious to go with Arcade Fire, especially in a week loaded with contenders–Voxtrot, Brakes w/ Pela, Deerhoof, Raveonettes w/ Midnight Movies, Manu Chao, et al–but considering these are the Fire’s 1st headlining shows since the Troub in Jan. 2005 B.L. (Before Losanjealous), they get the nod. Getting to The Greek early on a weeknight is always dicey but Electrelane is worth the effort.
