Go See Hear In L.A. Aug 10-12 (The Dustbowl Revivial/Heartworn Highways edition)

I just wanted to quickly ship out information on shows happening the beginning of this week.

Mon. 8/10

Top Show: Pony Boy rides into the Satellite in advance of her new CD Blue Gold. You can check out her sultry new single “Marquee Man” here

Of Monsters and Men stop by the Grammy Museum while Night Beds showcases their much talked about new CD Ivywild at Bardot’s School Night.

Tues. 8/11

Top Show(s): Jackie Greene will talk about his new album Back To Birth at the Grammy Museum tonight and play the Troubadour tomorrow night with Saint John opening. Langhorne Slim has a cool new disc, Change of the Heart. He’ll be at the Troubadour tonight with his band. Rayland Baxter will preview his fine full-length Imaginary Man at the Hotel Cafe tonight. He’ll be opening for Grace Potter at the Fonda Aug. 13-14.

Meanwhile, down in the OC, Chris Isaak headlines the City National Grove of Anaheim.

Wed. 8/13

Top Show(s): Jason Isbell, riding a wave of acclaim for his latest CD Something More Than Free, headlines the Wiltern with Damien Jurado opening. The Grammy Museum screens the new documentary Heartworn Highways Revisited, featuring folks from the original film (Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Young, and David Allan Coe) along with younger performers like John McCauley (Deer Tick), Jonny Fritz, Robert Ellis, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, and Langhorne Slim. Dustbowl Revivial plays the Aquarium of the Pacific tonight and the Edison on the 13th. The energizing rock ‘n’ soul outfit Vintage Trouble perform at the Fonda tonight and have a free in-store at Amoeba on the 13th; they have a new CD 1 Hopeful Rd. on the way.

and I’m hopeful I will return later on with more show news for the rest of the week.
