Cory Branan

Thurs. 3/19

Top Show: Cory Branan released one of my fave CDs of last year, the wonderfully entitled (and quite excellent) No-Hit Wonder. He’ll share his wry, ramshackled roots music at the Roxy. Another talented singer/songwriter Joe Pug showcases his fine new album Windfall at the Echo where Field Report’s Chris Porterfield will also do a set.

Railroad Earth will be laying down some newgrass jams at the El Rey while more jams can be experienced at the Mint where Red Baraat plays their “dhol-n-brass” music. The legendary Chieftains celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with 3 nights at the Segerstrom Concert Hall.

Fri. 3/20

The Echo will reverberate with the surfy garage rock of the Tijuana Panthers tonight and tomorrow.

Sat. 3/21

Top Show(s): The First Unitarian Church hosts Robyn Hitchcock, John Doe and Exene in what undoubtedly will be a memorable night of music. Tweedy starts its 2-night stand at the Ace Hotel. Tonight Eleanor Friedberger opens and Sunday it’s the Minus 5 (who just released their 10th album: Dungeon Gold on Yep Roc).

Maria Muldaur

The lovely Maria Muldaur presents a “multi-media concert retrospective” at McCabe’s. Bluesman Guitar Shorty returns to Harvelle’s in Santa Monica. And Keith Partridge (aka David Cassidy) will make the ladies remember their tween years when he plays the Saban in Beverly Hills.

Sun. 3/22

Santiparro unleashes some psychedelic-folk sounds at All Welcome Records in Inglewood. The Airborne Toxic Event has a pair of new releases to spotlight at the Tower Theatre. U.K.-born Terry Reid, a cult figure who has been around since the ‘60s, performs at McCabe’s. Of Montreal plays the Regent Theater tonight with Yip Deceiver and on Monday the 23rd they’ll be at Largo.

Quirky indie folk/rockers Two Sheds will release their sophomore disc Assembling Out in May but you can hear them at Harvard & Stone tonight with another fine L.A. band, Tall Tales and the Silver Lining.
