Go See Hear In L.A. Sept. 14-18 (The Swamp Dogg/Los Lobos edition)

I’m a little behind, okay – a lot behind – so here we go

Thurs. 14

Top Show: Los Lobos’ 40th anniversary show at the Whisky A Go Go – good luck getting in so you might want to check out the legendary Swamp Dogg will do a sit-down at the Grammy Museum or the rugged roots rockers Band of Heathens at the Hotel Café

Also: Twin Cities troubadour Mason Jennings at the Troubadour. Cass McCombs showcases his new Big Wheel and Others at the Echo. Dean Wareham (of Galaxie 500 and Luna cult fame) at Largo. Bill Callahan and The Dirty Three’s Mick Turner share the bill at a rare show at the Japan American Theatre. Midwestern indie popsters Someone Still Loves Boris Yeltsin have an Origami Vinyl instore (and will be at Pomona’s Glass House on 11/15)

Fri. 15

Top Show: Wesley Stace (perhaps still known as John Wesley Harding) will open up his Cabinet of Wonders at McCabe’s

The Besnard Lakes and Elephant Stone will rock Santa Ana’s Constellation Room (and The Bootleg on 11/16).  Vanessa Carlton plays Largo while Vancouver punkers White Lung are at the Echo

Sat. 16

Top Show: Brett Dennen shares songs from his mighty fine album Smoke and Mirrors at the Troubadour

Bluegrass hot-shots Susie Glaze and the Hilonesome Band play McCabe’s. Anna Calvi and Chelsea Wolfe will create some genre pushing music at Royce Hall

Sun. 17

Slaid Cleaves is one of the songwriters around. See why at McCabe’s

The interesting young Nashville rock band Wild Child comes to the Echo.

Mon. 18

Downtown at the Grammy Museum, the Petula Clark appearance is already sold out.
