The Show Report, 6/26: For James

by

Tonight many music-scene veterans will converge on Nathan P. Murphy’s for a show to support one of their own. James Davis, son of MK Ultra gutarist Kevin Flannery, died recently, and tonight The Murph Dome puts on a monster concert in his honor with Plasticity Switch, Pillbox, About Time, Allie Catz, Ilijah and Tokyo Sauna. It’s a big night for the acts involved–hell, Allie Catz reunited just for this show–and, hopefully, a moment of solace for the grief-stricken parents. All proceeds go toward the James Davis Foundation, so come out in droves and enjoy a good show to help out a family wanting to give its son the sendoff he deserves.

Elsewhere around town you’ll find the following:

* Black Box Revue with special guest Franki Chan at The Outland. BBR is keeping the summer hot with a string of guest performers for its weekly Friday-night gigs, and they kick it off with one of the hottest DJs in the L.A. underground scene. Not to be missed.

* For the Fallen Dreams, Abacabb, Stray From the Path, Screwtape Letters and A Sleepless Legacy at The Outland Ballroom. Vance Productions brings out some of hardcore’s heavy hitters, both touring and local. It should be fun to see what they can do in the larger room; many of their previous shows have filled The Blue Room at Billiards of Springfield. Elbow(-throwing) room, anyone?

* Q102 Homegrown at The High Life Live Martini Lounge with BringYourGreenHat, Shadows Move and Tuck & Abney. Three very popular artists with three very different styles of playing. We’re praying for collabos.

* Cindy Woolf, Chris Darby, Bottlefish and Charliehorse at Lindberg’s. We’ve listed these in reverse order of performance, and for this reason: Woolf has booked a special super-early show to kick things off. Be there at 7 p.m. to be sure and catch her set. 

* Trash Angels at Dennis’ Place

* The Shotgun Brothers at Patton Alley Pub

* Kevin Friday, aka Kevin Binder, at The Tipsy Turtle Pub. Back-to-back Fridays for Mr. Friday at the solo-artist-friendly pub. We continue to hear talk of a solo record on the way. One day… one day…
