First off, I must confess I’m turning into a Passion Pit junkie. It would be hard not to. Such a fluffy happy groove they put out. And Wallpaper (who will not be in LA this weekend, to the best of my knowledge) does a sweet job on remixing some of Passion Pit’s tunes. Their shows in the area are sold out. I hope you grabbed some tix.

King Khan & the Shrines, dependably unruly, play tonight and Saturday with BBQ pal Mark Sultan at the Echo.

Passion Pit with Harlem Shakes at the Echoplex tonight. What’s the love affair with Nicorette, by the way. Apparently, according to Conor Oberst and Harlem Shakes, at least, it’s the nouvelle toxicomanie.

Langhorne Slim is at Spaceland Saturday and at the Echo Sunday afternoon with One Trick Pony.

We’re stoked to have Langhorne in the studio tomorrow afternoon for a live Luxury Wafers Session!

BMSR (I’m also overdosing on these guys of late) and School of Seven Bells at the Troubadour tonight.

We’ll see School of Seven Bells in the studio tomorrow for a live Luxury Wafers Session, too. Yip!

Andrew Kinney (American Analog Set) was in for Luxury Wafers today with his Wooden Birds. Super sweet and gentle crew of 5 from Austin pouring out their mellow, Neil Young sound.

We’ll be seeing/hearing plenty more super awesome bands on a regular basis. Hello Summer.

The tracks below are far from brandy new. In fact, we’ve posted many of them recently. But here’s another go at them. If you’re feeling really wild, download them to your ipod, crack open a refreshment, turn on the disco ball and let the party begin.
