This Month in Rock

There must be something in the water this month — a little tiny extra dose of rocktasma. A ginormous — a double ginormous — dose of dapper bands are pulling through the uncharted backwaters that is my backyard. Check out the bands rolling through the Fox Pomona and the Glass House in the next month:

  • Dirty Projectors. $20
  • Reverend Horton Heat (with some guy named Jerry Lee Lewis) $30
  • OC Scholars (For you ska lovers out there. And hey who don’t love a nice horn section.) $15
  • Jimmy Eat World with “They Promised Us Jetpacks”. (I call this “cute band name night.”) $35
  • Rufio. (The most cheerful and nicely dressed punk rockers of the bunch.) $13
  • Matt & Kim (however I recently called a ban on charming DIY duos so … screw ’em. But still. I hear they put on good live show.) $15
  • Tokyo Police Club. $16
  • The National (This will be a peach of a show.) $32.50
  • Interpol (with White Rabbits, whom I love! Can I say whom? I can say whom, right? It’s my blog, I’ll say what I want.) (But it’s sold out, so deal with THAT.)
  • Polar Bear Club. (Though they’re the openers.) $17
  • Mae. $13
  • Blonde Redhead (nice to see these folks are still alive). $25

Don’t say I never told you nuthin.
