OMG! We are so late on this week’s Los Angeles Concert Calendar and we blame it all on SXSW and New York, but hey, better late than never. With that said, we need to hire a new show list editor asap! It’s post SXSW week and lots of great bands are in town with some damn good show popping off this week. And we’re giving away free tickets for some of these shows!

We’ve handpicked selections from all genres and the show listings in bold are this week’s top show picks! Let us know if we missed something good in our Los Angeles Concert Calendar (March 18—25, 2013).
