Localchella 2015 Poster by Luke McGarry


I now look forward to this announcement more than Coachella.  Since Coachella keeps artists captive for two weeks they gotta do what bands do and that’s to gig around towns.  Usually about two weeks after the big Coachella lineup announcement comes a Luke McGarry created poster announcing smaller shows in more intimate venues for a much cheaper price than the $375 plus service charges for the Festival.

While all the shows above are highly recommend,these are my four shows I’d attend to see full sets in smaller venues.  Total cost for these performances is $109 (plus service charges).

Jenny LewisVoyager was one of my favorite albums of last year and I can now see her for $30 on April 7 .

I’ve wanted to catch Benjamin Booker but his music is more conducive to a club show which is why I think his show at the Roxy on April 9 should be the place to be, especially at a price of $22.

Seeing New York’s No Wavers Swans with Angel Olsen opening up is too tempting to pass up at $32.  They are playing the intimate El Rey Theatre on April 14.

Based on 137 year-end top ten lists compiled by Metacritic, Lost in the Dream by War On Drugs was the most critically acclaimed album of 2014, appearing on 53 lists and being named first on 12 of them”.  See them for $25 at Pappys and Harriets on April 15.
