White Arrows

Hats off to The Echo and The Rumble for assembling such a potentially mesh-worthy trio of bands at tonight's free show! In addition to BestNewBands.com's favorite LA psych rockers White Arrows (see Lauren Novik's interview with the band or her post about their must-see set at Sasquatch!), gritty blues duo My Goodness and pretty pop quintet Milo Greene will also be performing. At first I dismissed White Arrows as too similar to The Strokes, but that's not giving them enough credit. The more I listen, the more I appreciate the sprawling oddness of their vocal arrangements and psychedelic effects. Seattle's My Goodness is much rougher around the edges, but in all the right ways. The duo tends toward heavy garage rock, whereas LA's Milo Greene skews whimsical with many layers of gorgeous orchestral sounds. The fastidious and fascinating bloggers recently performed at The Troubadour and at The Bootleg for White Arrows' May residency.

If you're planning on heading to the show tonight, doors open at 8:00pm and you must be 21 years of age and older to enter. Admittance is free, and The Echo is located at 1822 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. If you're unable to attend, you can catch My Goodness in San Francisco this Friday at Amnesia before they head back up to Seattle for several dates. White Arrows will perform Friday as part of the Open Boarders summer concert series in Thousand Oaks before heading down to San Diego for another show with The Rumble at Bar Pink on Saturday. Milo Greene has plans to play the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles with Grouplove in July, and tickets are now available on their wesbsite.

Laurel Kathleen

Laurel was born in the great state of Texas but grew up in the slightly backwards state of Minnesota. As soon as she was old enough to hitchhike safely, she thumbed it back to good ol' Texas, enrolling in the University of North Texas. While there, her mind was blown by the incredibly rich and diverse musical landscape of Denton which prompted her to begin writing about her concert-going adventures. She now resides in LA, where her life's goal is to spread the good word about good music. That, and becoming best friends with Chelsea Handler (whichever comes first).
