I have now gone two complete weeks without attending a show — that’s a first in a long time (not counting vacations). I planned on hitting up the Saturn Moth release show Saturday until that massive thunderstorm blew in from out of nowhere.

Well, there will be no avoiding the clubs this week. You’ve got Dntel on Wednesday, the Tim Kasher in-store early Thursday evening followed by Lepers/Snake Island at O’Leaver’s later that night, New Lungs and Solid Goldberg Friday night at O’Leaver’s, and then the MAHA Music Festival on Saturday.

And then there’s what’s happening tonight… Over at The Waiting Room it’s The L.A. Guns (the Tracii Guns version featuring Jizzy Pearl on vocals). Opening is Black On High, tickets are $13. Show starts at 9. Get your (hair) metal on, people.

Meanwhile, down at The Slowdown Jr., Venice CA band Honeyhoney plays with Hookshot. $5, 8 p.m.

Finally, if you happen to be in Des Moines tonight, Bright Eyes plays at the Val Air Ballroom with none other than Conduits and The Envy Corps. $25. 8 p.m.

Lots of stuff online this week, including interviews with Guided by Voices and a final look at the upcoming MAHA Music Festival. And quite possibly the launch of a new weekly feature. Keep watching…
