Go See Hear in L.A. Oct. 24-31 (The Felice Petite edition)

October is winding down on a rather quiet note as revelers gear up for Halloween on the 31st

Probably ranking as the top show of the week is Friday night’s Felice Brothers and Gill Landry bill at the Satellite. The Felice Brothers have been cranking out some quality roots rock over the past number of years, although they took a slightly different route on their most recent album Celebration, Florida, which has more of a dance element. Gill Landry, who plays with the Old Crow Medicine Show, has a strong new album, Piety & Desire, which mines a New Orleans-flavored Americana sound.

If you are up for the drive to Santa Barbara on Wednesday there’s a terrific bill of female singer-songwriter going by the Take Three Girls tour moniker. While I am not familiar with Ange Boxall, I have enjoyed Sara Petite’s music in the past and I’m a big fan of Brigitte DeMeyer (whose wonderful Rose of Jericho came out this summer).

Midweek is also a time to head to the El Rey in L.A. The hot local band Grouplove will be rockin’ the Rey on Wednesday night while the reconstituted Lemonheads will be playing their classic It’s A Shame About Ray at their show there Thursday.

The funky Meters will liven up the House of Blues with more sounds from the Big Easy on Friday.

Saturday night the Luckman will be filled with the spirited music from the innovative African ensemble Tinariwen, who has a very cool new disc Tassili out on Anti.

The long-running Scottish group, the Battlefield Band, will play its trad-based music at McCabe’s on Sunday, while Halloween night finds Minus the Bear celebrating its 10th year of music-making at the Satellite.
