Go See Hear in L.A. Aug. 8-28 (The Most Of August issue)

Because of scheduling situations, I am going to give a quick overview of recommendations for the next couple weeks.

One big recommendation goes to the big Roots Roadhouse Fest at the Echo/Echoplex on the 14th. This grand Grand Ole Echo extravaganza features a terrific lineup of the Sadies, Jessie Sykes, Eilen Jewell, Big Sandy, Mike Stinson, Whitey Morgan, Dawn Landes and more. Get yourself over there for a little or a lot of Americana music mania.

The top double bill must be the Josh Ritter and Old 97’s concert the Wiltern on Aug. 17.

Other notable shows include:

Eels and the Submarines at the El Rey 8/12

Decemberists with Wye Oak at the Greek 8/12

Lucinda Williams at the Orange County Great Park – 8/13

Michelle Shocked at Pershing Square – 8/13

Adele with Wanda Jackson at the Greek – 8/15

Grownup Noise (a particularly cool band, check out their enchanting This Time With Feeling CD) at the Silverlake Lounge – 8/15
