While summer is winding down, there are still several shows coming up before we hit fall. From newcomers to veteran musicians, the next 30 days will bring a lot of great music to Southern California including local favorites and longtime acts from around the world. Just in case, you need a few suggestions, here are four shows to catch within the next few weeks.
1. Sylvan Esso
On Aug. 25 Sylvan Esso will make a stop at the Hollywood Palladium. The electro-indie due released their sophomore album ‘What Now?’ earlier this year. Sylvan Esso incorporate raw vocals (the band stresses the absence of autotune) and a variety of artificial sound to create interesting pop-inspired music. Visit Sylvan Esso’s website for more information.
2. Fitz and the Tantrums:
Local L.A. band Fitz and the Tantrums will perform at the Forum on Aug. 31. A Fitz and the Tantrums show is always a high energy, inclusive and exciting experience for fans. The band’s discography is full of up tune hits that are easily enjoyed by people of all ages, and each member of the band gives 100 percent of themselves on stage. For more information, visit the band’s website.
3. Thee Oh Sees:
If you’re looking for something a little edgier, Thee Oh Sees will be playing at the Teragram Ballroom on Aug. 31. The Teragram is one of L.A.’s newest venues located just outside of downtown. Thee Oh Sees create a high energy, high-impact collision of sound that propels fans to move in a similar fashion. Visit Thee Oh Sees’ website for ticket information.
4. Together Pangea:
This band is relatively young, but already has three albums under their belt and are on the cusp of releasing a new album at the end of this month. From singles like “Better Find Out” to “Money On It,” the band has a Strokes vibe with a hint of punk. Together Pangea will bring their young, fresh energy to the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on Sept. 15. Visit Together Pangea’s website for ticket info and more music.
