Daily Concert Blast: A Dose of Concerts in LA on May 23, 2012

Make your midweek more exciting with some great residencies tonight – Matt Chamberlain at The Mintor Tic Tic Boom! at Lot 1 Cafe.  The former is joined by keys/B3 extraordinaire Marco Benevento and the latter are joined by We Are/She Is and Odd Modern to round out an eclectic, LGBT friendly indie rock bill.  


For some throwback sounds – The Roxy rolls out the Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde party that sees the return of the original Pharcyde crew.  Don’t let that show pass you by, although I wouldn’t blame you for electing Rock for the Rack with Leo Nocentelli of the Funky Meters instead.  Both should deliver nostalgia inducing performances.  


Los Angeleno native and soon to be Bonnaroo performer Robert Francis holds down the fort that is Troubadour.  In other names that should be on your radar – Love In The Circus performs at Zanzibar, Sonnymoon, Kone and CBG beat down The Airliner for Low End Theory and Dandelo delivers free noise on The Satellite crowd.  Other notables include a free show at Slidebar with Seedless and Zen Robbi, Aceyalone at a re-opened Little Temple, Devandra Banhart at The Observatory and House of Vibe All-Stars at Harvelles.
