Los Angeles Concert Calendar (March 25–31, 2013)

Death Hymn nUmber nine photos

PHOTO: Death Hymn Number 9 at the Echoplex—They play this Sunday at the Continental Room in Fullerton. Don’t miss these hellions!

While last week was popping with amazing shows, this week is good, but nothing to go crazy about—except for Billy Bragg! There are some other great shows going down this week (ICEAGE, Heartless Bastards, Poolside, Ghostface Killah, Foxygen, Daedelus, Veronica Falls, Wax Idols, Paid Dues Fest, Death Hymn Number 9…), but Billy Bragg is some seminal goods. Billy Bragg will headline the El Rey on Thursday, March 28.

While keeping it selective, we’ve handpicked shows from all genres to satisfy your musical palette. 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 25-31, 2013).

    Stoked on Sound City at The Bootleg. Been waiting to see it and it’s even better that I get to see it at my favorite LA venue for free.
