What Cool Shows Are Going On This Week in LA? (Oct. 18-24, 2010)

Photo: Matt Fisher

We don’t post every show that’s going on every night (in or around LA) we just post the goods according to our collective knowledge. We’re music elitists at heart but we try our best to keep an open palette of taste with an affinity towards underground, indie and local musicians and venues. Let us know if we missed something good.
