There are some awesome shows this week popping off in-and-around Los Angeles, but nothing tops the Rolling Stones 50 & Counting kick-off tour at the STAPLES Center this Friday. Last Saturday, our editor Sandy, had the fortune of attending the Rolling Stones intimate Echoplex gig. Now the excitement continues with their STAPLES show. If you’re not going to the Stones, we highly recommend checking out these shows: Chad Valley, Clinic, Dead Ships, Vietnam, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Soft Moon/Dead Skeletons, Os Mutantes, Tamaryn/the Black Ryder, Psycho De Mayo with Black Mountain, Los Lobos/Kinky and more!

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 on our Los Angeles Concert Calendar (April 30-May 5, 2013).
