While it may still technically be winter, spring is fast-approaching and things are really beginning to heat up on the concert front in Los Angeles this March, not to mention, it’s SXSW month. There are plenty of reasons to celebrate the changing of the seasons – from the old school: godfather of psych Roky Erickson, punk rock living legends John Doe & Exene (of X), and post-punk icons Gang of Four to the new school: hardcore thrashers Trash Talk, shoegaze serenaders No Joy, and indie synth pop darlings, Broods. One thing is clear, there’s definitely no excuse to stay inside and hibernate any longer. Check out the best Los Angeles (and surrounding) concerts this March!
