Weekend Jumpstart

I usually gravitate toward local bands when formulating my schedule of concerts to see on the weekends, so it was much to my surprise that the following artists are from nowhere near Los Angeles. However, they are sure to bring performances fit for the electric LA scene. See what we are looking forward to this weekend, and let us know if you decide to check them out!

Doldrums @ The Bootleg Theatre – Friday, March 22 – Tickets

Good electronic music can transcend fat beats and clubby dance hooks. Electronic tracks can be expertly crafted pieces of music that flow through movements and blend different styles. Doldrums does the latter very well. The artist also known as Airick Woodhead will be performing his intricate sounds at The Bootleg this Friday, and if you need a little sneak preview before the show, check out tracks off of his new album, Lesser Evil, now streaming on Soundcloud.

Django Django @ The Fonda Theatre – Saturday, March 23 – Tickets

British alt-pop band Django Django will be gracing us with their silky, mellow tunes on Saturday at The Fonda. Their old-school riffs and interesting doo-wop vocals make this band really easy to listen to in any situation. Check out their MySpace page (yes, MySpace) to hear some of their fantastic tracks, such as “Hail Bop” and “Storm,” then buy a ticket to the show before they all go away.

Foxtails Brigade @ The Satellite – Sunday, March 24 – Tickets

Round out your weekend with the etherial voice of Laura Wienbach from Foxtails Brigade. Hailing from San Francisco, this band will be at The Satellite Sunday night performing gorgeous chamber pop tracks, some of which will surely be off of their new album, Time is Passed, released in November of 2012. Songs like “Winter’s Feat” and “The Unloved” evoke a certain melancholy mood without getting too somber. Check them out on Soundcloud for yourself!
