Best Concerts in Los Angeles featuring Burgerama, Pete Rock + Slum Village, Rocky Erickson & more

Now this is what concerts in Los Angeles are all about. This week’s show list is dripping with a tremendous amount of indie, alternative and underground acts.

Friday night at the Hollywood Palladium, I saw first-hand the ramifications of this as a couple next to me went through a wide range of emotions during CHRVCHES‘ fantastic 13-song set. This show served one of the last two […]
