Y&T at the Canyon Club

Canyon Club

28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills, CA 91301

9:00pm

With a discography of 18 albums, four greatest hits collections, plus a box set, Y&T have sold over four million albums since their 1974 inception.

Before Motley Crue, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, Y&T was slogging away in sweaty rock clubs around America.  When the band formed in the early 1970s, little did they know they would become the standard for hard rock bands that trailed.  Many of the biggest acts of the 80s became popular opening for Y&T.  Likewise, Y&T, for years remained the most requested supporting act on the hard rock road, touring with rock icons including Ozzy Ozbourne, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and more.

Ruby Force

Hotel Cafe

1623 Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

7:00pm

Ruby Force, the musical brainchild of Erin McLaughlin, captures her personal journey of self-discovery...marked by a maturity and ease in tone, lyrics that elicit confidence in the midst of questions, and a flirty playfulness that will melt anyone's heart.  All this - with an invitation to listen and engage in her twisted tales of life and love, lost and gained.

Evolutionary War, her debut effort, is a full length album, set to be released in 2015. It transports the listener through McLaughlin’s own experiences – from her upbringing in the yellow-hued fields of the Southwest, through the dank, fluoresced streets of urban metropolises, and across a myriad of international seas.   Enlisting the collaboration of musical luminaries such as Elijah Thomson (Everest, Delta Spirit, Father John Misty), Richard Swift (The Black Keys, The Shins, Foxygen), Frank Lenz (Pedro The Lion) and Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek), McLaughlin keeps good company on the sojourn as these creative partners inject a wealth of heart, brains and guts into her already soul-wrenching compositions.

Billy Joe Shaver

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

8:00pm

Billy Joe Shaver has never been a household name, but his songs became country standards during the ’70s and his reputation among musicians and critics hasn’t diminished during the ensuing decades.

One of the best synopses of Shaver’s upbringing is his own song, “I Been to Georgia on a Fast Train.” When he sings, “my grandma’s old-age pension is the reason that I’m standing here today,” he ain’t kidding. The “good Christian raising” and “eighth grade education” — not to mention being abandoned by his parents shortly after being born, working on his uncles’ farms instead of going to high school, and losing part of his fingers during a job at a sawmill — are all part of his life story. “I got all my country learning,” he sings, “picking cotton, raising hell, and bailing hay.”

Lido

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:30pm

"Who is Lido? It's the question everyone in electronic music has been asking since a string of breathtaking, unofficial remixes under that name started appearing 12 months ago—'Billboard' by S-Type, 'Ain't No Sunshine' by soul legend Bill Withers, and, controversially, 'Latch' by Disclosure, which was forcibly taken down after 24 hours and has since existed as an "urban legend" of sorts online. Everyone from Skrillex and Diplo to Ryan Hemsworth has been playing them. Who could it be? Where were they coming from.The answer: 21-year-old Norwegian producer Peder Losnegård.

holy ghost tent revival

Hotel Cafe

1623 Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

10:00am

Holy Ghost Tent Revival is a six-piece rock & roll band from North Carolina, driven by an exhilarating live show that has uplifted audiences since the band formed in 2007. For the past seven years, they have been honing their unique sound, which NPR describes as that of a "soul-rock horn band that recalls 60s and 70s classic-rock influences such as The Band and The Flying Burrito Brothers, contemporary indie-rock acts like Dr. Dog, and New Orleans brass-band jazz."

San Cisco Live Performance & Signing

Amoeba Music

6400 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028

6:00pm

(3/10) Australia's San Cisco visit Amoeba Hollywood to play songs from their forthcoming album, Gracetown.
Coming out of the small coastal resort of Fremantle, a beautiful town nestling in the shadow of Perth’s gleaming monoliths and separated from the more fashionable parts of Oz by thousands of miles of red dirt, you might expect the music of San Cisco to be limited in vision, comprising flimsy surf-ditties extolling the ephemeral pleasures of sun, surf and sex. You would be wrong, however. For while it would be untrue to claim that the unholy trinity of sex, sun and sea are absent from their songs, on their new album, Gracetown, the band - singer Jordi Davieson, Josh Biondillo (guitar), Nick Gardner (bass) and Scarlett Stevens (drums) - extend their sonic palette to new territories. There is a deeper, chillier feel to songs such as ‘Snow’ and a looser feel to ones like ‘Jealousy’ that signals a new sophistication and maturity. Less sun, then, and more muted shades, as well as a deeper exploration of the hormonal tangle that is postmodern sexual politics. If there is a band that better explores the ache, paranoia and oestrogen-rush of young love I don’t know it. The album shows San Cisco growing up, and this growing up is scary and magnificent to behold.

The War in Ukraine: Propaganda and Reality

ALOUD @ Central Library

630 W. Fifth St., Los Angeles CA, CA 90071

7:15pm

Timothy Snyder and Masha Gessen in conversation with Justinian Jampol

A year ago, Russia invaded Ukraine, destroying a peaceful order in Europe and placing its own regime at risk. We in the West have experienced this historical turning point through a haze of propaganda. According to Snyder, the Kremlin was perhaps wrong about the political weakness of Ukraine, but likely right about some intellectual weaknesses of Americans and Europeans. When will the war end? This rare pairing of two essential thinkers on Eastern European politics offers a revelatory look at why what happens in Ukraine is of significant international importance.
